Model Details

The TES3 is a flexible platform which carries out insertion, reception, bridging, and multiplexing of digital data in the vertical blanking interval (VBI) of any analog television signal. It will operate in any country's' television and power standard, and will encode and insert any VBI format including NABTS, WST and EIA-608B. Software modules are loaded into the TES3 that enable the various modes.



  • Communications: Multiple data ports and VBI data decoders for data input and output.
  • Processing: The heart of the TES3 is an Intel based computer with FLASH disk. The various modes and features of the TES3 platform are enabled by loading Norpak software modules into the TES3.
  • Encoding: Any VBI data format (NABTS, WST, AMOL, VITC, CGMS, Line 21 Captioning, proprietary) can be encoded by the TES3, with up to eight done simultaneously.
  • Insertion: The TES3 will insert the encoded data formats on any combination of lines 10-25 (7-22 in 625 line systems) in any video format (NTSC, PAL, SECAM, 525 & 625 Line).

The TES3 Platform features are enabled by software modules that are loaded at the factory and changed or upgraded via the built-in modem (external modem in case of LAN units) by Norpak. The standard modules are outlined below.

Support for custom applications/data formats is also available.
