    Powering Competitiveness in TV and Broadcasting


    Establishing a broadcasting network data center as a core transmission unit for broadcasting network services helps achieve the integration of telecommunications, cable TV, and Internet networks. These newgeneration smart data centers have both high capacity and high performance with major applications such as:

    1. Video
      Video has always constituted a core service of the television and broadcasting industry. Service providers are taking into account the rising expectations of customers in the area of video quality. High-definition and 3D high-definition are gradually becoming the mainstream. Television and broadcasting data centers must primarily ensure that video data is properly stored, distributed, and managed.

    2. Broadband Internet
      Data center infrastructure must satisfy the needs of broadband service development. At the same time, mirror servers alleviate the lack of Internet resources and export bandwidth.

    3. Operations support
      Data centers support the IT system inside a broadcasting company for data processing and storage. Generally data centers include redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., air conditioning, fire suppression) and various security devices.

    4. IDC colocation
      The development of IDC related services includes colocation, cloud computing and complete telecommunication services.


    Customer Demands

    With the intensified integration of major networks, the television and broadcasting industry has reached a new peak in innovation and in establishing data centers. Data centers are established based on requirements such as flexibility, reliability, safety, energy savings, and smart control.

    Flexible expansion
    Broadcasting services are expected to continue rapid growth far into the future. Data center planning requires sufficient space and capacity to ensure prompt followup to business growth and rapid deployment. Data center layout and server racks must be standardized and modularized. The modularization concept allows flexible data center planning and expansion. 

    High security and reliability
    The development of broadcasting industry services and unique service characteristics determine the timeliness and continuity of data processing. Data center system configuration must take full consideration of reliability. Comprehensive security measures safeguard the data security of data center users. Reliable equipment performance and redundancy schemes assure high data center reliability.

    Energy savings
    Products with energy-saving technologies must be selected for entire cooling facilities. For IT application facilities, products with lower power consumption should be selected for servers. Free cooling may also be utilized to achieve the goal of energy savings.

    Smart control
    The data center environment and facility monitoring, control, and management must be incorporated. This should include data center environment temperatures, humidity, monitoring of leakage and key equipment such as cooling towers, water pumps, chillers, precision cooling, and electric valves to achieve optimal control and green energy savings for data center air conditioning systems.

    High reliability and performance - Delta UPS solutions


    Small- and medium-sized data centers
    The Delta Modulon DPH 25-200kVA UPS series is a new-generation modular UPS which is hot swappable and has an AC-AC efficiency of up to 96% (up to 95% at a light load of 30% and 96% at 50% load and above). Four UPS system units can be paralleled without the need for additional hardware. The full power rating (kVA=kW) enhances the availability of the power supply and it is equipped with built-in batteries a rack-mount power distribution cabinet (RPDC). This is an exclusive ultra-integrated power solution for small-sized data centers.

    Large-sized data centers
    The Delta Ultron NT series and DPS series UPS have a power rating of 20 - 4000kVA. Electricity costs gradually become a key issue for IT managers. Delta DPS series models have an AC-AC efficiency of up to 95% even at a light load of 30%. This noticeably reduces the operation costs of data centers.
