 Competencies

 Central aim of organisation
gcs does technology research, development and product engineering for systems providing Multimedia Internet Broadcast Services.

 Briefly describe your organisation
gcs GmbH supports R&TD activities directed towards integrating video, interactive data services and novel types of interactive multimedia and improving the utilization of bandwidth.
Starting from DVB/MPEG-2 technology for digital video and for Internet technology, gcs integrated existing hardware and software components for interactive multimedia applications. The goal of the developments is to deliver systems which are compatible with popular hardware and software platforms, comply with international standards and are fully integrated with Internet technology.
All developments are directed towards turn-key systems for interactive multimedia applications and services Internet Broadcast Solutions.

 RTD Experience
gcs undertakes Research & Technology Development activities directed towards integrating video, interactive data services, and novel types of interactive multimedia as well as improving the utilization of bandwidth.
Key technology is the encapsulation/decapsulation of IP data into DVB Transportstreams (or generic streams). Starting from DVB/MPEG-2 technology using the widely used MPE (Multiprotocol Encapsulation) standard for digital video and for Internet technology, gcs develops hardware and software components for interactive multimedia applications. Recently also GSE technology (Generic Stream Encapsulation) for DVB-S2 compatible solutions has been implemented.
The goal of the developments is to deliver systems which are compatible with popular hardware and software platforms, comply with international standards and are fully integrated with Internet technology.
All developments are directed towards turn-key systems for interactive multimedia applications and services Internet Broadcast Solutions.
