TSBroadcaster 3 Common Download (CDL) is a configuration of TSBroadcaster which is suitable for delivery of OCAP code images and firmware to OpenCable-complient devices. Its features include:
TSBroadcaster can generate multiple transport streams and can connect to one of more TSPlayer systems, each controlling a single transport stream broadcast.
A high degree of fault tolerance can be achieved by using a hot swappable spare of TSBroadcaster 3 CDL. A master/slave pair of TSBroadcasters monitor each other and the slave takes over the role of the master if the master fails.
An ASI switch, available from a number of third party suppliers, can swap TSBroadcaster or TSPlayer outputs from a failed system if required. TSBroadcaster uses the Peer Groups feature to implement n+1 redundancy.
