30th Banner communication 1
Communications and broadcast industries are experiencing an upsurge in computing requirements. This has been accelerated by the introduction of digital broadcasting for both sound and vision and the increasing use of satellite communications. Within this is the mushrooming requirement for digital media storage, processing and playout.

Analogue processing equipment is being replaced by digital processing, based on industrial computing platforms. In addition many new processes are becoming available as a result of the digital revolution. Real time processing of video signals requires significant processing power and storage capability, which is now feasible with the latest generation processors and storage devices. Signage is another area experiencing rapid growth in the digital age, and one where Captec is very active.

The broadcasting industry’s initial forays into the digital processing world were undertaken with commercially available computer equipment. However, the shortcomings of reliability and constant changes of specification make this unsuitable for an industry where high reliability, high availability and consistency of supply are paramount. This is why Captec has developed a range of computers for the communication industry, bringing all the advantages of industrial grade computing to the industry. This covers both fixed installations and mobile computing equipment.

Captec has been supporting many players in the Communications industry for a long time, with computers in portable satellite terminals, news rooms, editing suites and digital broadcast, to name but a few. Examples of our customers include: BBC, News International, Arqiva, Eyretel, Level 3 Communications, EADS.
