Install DIGITAL TO TV and view up to 200 satellite channels in DTT format


Digital To TV

We have installed flat screens with integrated DTT... ... Would it be possible to receive all the programmes in DTT?

DTT quality on your television The analogue switch off is a unique opportunity to eliminate any interference in the image of your televisions, especially when large format flat screens are used. For this it is necessary to replace the old SMATV distribution networks. Digital To TV is a head-end that maintains the original digital format and distributes the signal with a superb quality, with all the advantages of the DTT technology.

Satellite channels in DTT format Can you imagine receiving the satellite digital TV using the DTT decoder? With Digital To TV it is possible! Digital To TV turns the satellite digital television programmes to DTT format and injects them in the distribution network with the rest of the DTT channels. As the process is fully digital, the final quality is equal to the original one. The Digital To TV system is compatible with LCN (Logic Channel Number), which allows setting in what order and position channels will be memorized on the DTT decoder when the user does an automatic search (*).

Digital To TV

Digital To TV for those places where the DTT is not reaching

Digital To TV for rural areas: a solution for zones without DTT coverage Digital To TV is a very economic solution to re-broadcast channels in areas without DTT coverage. Digital To TV receives the programmes via satellite and re-broadcasts them in DTT, offering practically the same quality as in the rest of the network.

Realign the channels without losing quality: Optimize the quality of reception Often it is necessary to realign the channels. For instance, when re-broadcasting a channel over a new channel to avoid interference on the same channel. Also in cable distribution, when it is necessary to move the channels down to avoid the bandwidth limitations. With the Digital To TV the channels can be moved to another frequency and the quality increased.

Why resign to just amplify? Regenerate the quality of the signal! In many occasions to amplify the signal is not the solution. Digital To TV is not limited to only realign the channels. The system receives the video/audio signal and modulates it again, fully recovering the original quality of the transmission.

Digital To TV

Digital To TV is ideal for distribution in buildings, residential and communities

Offer encrypted programmes in open for communities Digital To TV has the slots to insert CAM modules and Smart Cards that allows the open distribution for most services. This allows all the neighbours to receive the programmes without the need of additional decoders. For services that do not offer de-encryption solutions in CAM format, the Digital To TV converts the ASI or the video/audio output of the original receivers to DTT.

DTT distribution in Cable TV networks: neither additional set top boxes nor remote controls Digital To TV helps with the digitalisation of the cable TV networks. Many cable operators have already discovered the advantages of using DTT in their networks, given that most of the homes passed already have DTT receivers. In addition to the saving of the set top box, the users will appreciate not to have to use a new remote control. Now it is possible to do without the cable TV set top boxes!

Preserve the landscape: no satellite dishes! There are many towns and communities of neighbours that would wish to remove from their buildings the satellite dishes that have slowly contributed to distort the landscape. The Digital To TV allows us to transmit all the contents in DTT and to receive them through the cable distribution networks or through terrestrial antennas, thus contributing to “clean� the landscape of satellite dishes.

Digital To TV Digital To TV there where there is a television network

Digital To TV suitable for all types of installations, including high definition DTT Distribution is very convenient in cases where the need to optimise the space has led to the use of flat screens. This might be the case in ships, hospitals, pubs, etc. The Digital To TV is compatible with the new high resolution channels. Make them available to your customers!

Install Digital to TV and avoid changing the network The signal output by the Digital To TV system is so robust, that in most cases it will not be necessary to change the cables nor elements of the distribution network even if it was not suitable for analogue distribution. The high quality of the signal generated will allow multiple amplification stages. Your customers will appreciate a solution to avoid annoying and troublesome reforms.

A portable micro-transmitter Would you like to have a low power local transmitter? Would you broadcast a match, race, cultural event, etc in the local area of the event? Do you need a low cost solution to transfer the programmes to the point where it is to be broadcast? Digital To TV can become an effective solution for these and many other cases becoming a true DTT micro-transmitter.

DT-102 Dual DVB-T Modulator The DT-102 (dual) modules are COFDM modulators compatible with DVB-T standard. They have TS-ASI input and RF output in the UHF band and are agile in frequency and output level. Inputs can contain services in all sorts of formats: SD, HD, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, etc.

This allows packing more programs in a single COFDM channel than a standard off air DTT channel. A typical configuration for a coaxial TV distribution system can be 64QAM, FEC=3/4 and GI=1/32 so that the modulator accepts the highest possible bit rate.

With our exclusive PID filtering function the user can remove video, audio or data services from the original transport stream. In case of using the DT-302 as a receiver, the system allows to reduce bit rate of the incoming satellite transponders to values that can be used in COFDM.

The dual DVB-T modulator DT-102, includes an internal combiner that delivers a single DVB-T output with high C/N. This feature gives great robustness to the signal, allowing adding RF amplifiers in cascade during distribution with minimal loss of signal quality.

Modulation, Forward Error Correction or Guard Interval can be set to the desired values depending on the application.

DT-421D ASI to IP converters, SPTS and MPTS output The DT-421D module is an "IP-streamer" that allows receiving up to 4 TS-ASI Transport Streams and convert them into IP Multicast streams, so that could be distributed in an Ethernet type network. The IP output streams can be transmitted on UDP or RTP protocol (other protocols can be implemented on demand).

The DT-421D allows the user to select between the operating mode SPTS or MPTS independently for each ASI. Some features may be available only when the TS-ASI comes from receiver modules that belong to the Digital To TV range such as the DT-302 (DVB-S-S2 / ASI) or DT-312 (DVB-T / ASI).

Module configuration is done via the control module DT-800, either by front panel or from a PC (free software).

SPTS operating mode

(Single Program Transport Stream)

When it is used in combination with the DT-302 (DVB-S/S2) and / or DT-312 (DVB-T) it allows distributing in a local IPTV network several services for satellite and / or DTT in freeview format, such as complementary channels for the VOD services which are usual in an hotel IPTV network. In this operating mode, the DT-421D lets you select up to 10 services for each TS-ASI input (that is a maximum of 40 services in total) and convert each of them in a separate SPTS IP stream. The user should assign a different IP multicast to each stream generated.

DT-421D ASI to IP converters, SPTS and MPTS output

MPTS operating mode

(Multiple Program Transport Stream)

The DT-421-M receives the transport streams and converts them into IP MPTS streams. Each IP MPTS output stream contains the same services and PSI / SI tables that its corresponding transport stream at the input. Conversion is direct, without processing or changing the stream content. The main application of the MPTS operating mode is to transport over an IP network several TS. The DT-421D (ASI / IP MPTS converter) allows encapsulating IP up to 4 TS-ASI at the source, transporting them over an Ethernet or a VPN network to another network point, and to recover the exactly same original 4 TS-ASI thanks to the DT-324-M (IP MPTS converter / ASI), with identical services and tables.

Distribution over Coaxial cable


DT-620 Fibre optic to DVB-T receiver The DT-620 is an optical receiver that converts input optical signals into RF DVB-T signals to transmit them over a distribution network. In order to cover a certain distance, the digital signal is converted into an optical signal through a converter (such as the DT-610) and once at the other end of the link, the DT-620 does conversion again to DVB-T, recovering the signal. The module has an optical SC input and an RF type BNC output. Input is demodulated and optimized to broadcast on DVB-T and DVB-C digital channels.

DVB-T

At the BNC module output there is released an RF signal. Then it can be inserted into a distribution network with the advantages of robustness and high quality offered by the digital technology. This module is suitable for optical links up to 40 km away (depending on the number of channels). The optical input supports wavelengths from 1100 to 1600 nm.

DT-802 Control module with a redundant power supply The DT-802 is the control module of the "Digital To TV" system, with a dual redundant power supply of 300 W and two inputs for 1 or 2 different electricity suppliers. Each power module is individually removable and hot-swappable. The redundant power supply works when either one of the electricity suppliers or one power module fails. In this case the second power module acts immediately without affecting the TV distribution system.

The power module has a warning system of light and a buzzer, which tells the user when there is a problem in the system. All other functions are equivalent to the power supply module DT-800 but more powerful: allows the specific control of each module and configuring all the parameters associated and can work in local mode via the front keypad or by remote control via an Ethernet connection.

Both power modules can be replaced by hot-swapping a new one, that is, without rebooting the system. This ensures the continuity for the TV distribution system.

DVB-T and DVB-H (*) Modulator MO-170 General overview The MO-170 is a general purpose DVB-T/H modulator contained in a 19" 1U chassis. The unit has three selectable MPEG-2 TS inputs (two serial ASI inputs and one parallel SPI input). Either of these inputs can be used to modulate the COFDM signal in both hierarchical (one TS input) and non-hierarchical (two TS inputs) modes. An additional test TS can be generated internally in the modulator. This allows to generate compliant DVB-T/H signals even in the absence of a valid TS input. In slave mode, the useful bit rate at the TS input to the COFDM modulator has to be the one defined in ETSI EN 300 744 for each choice of DVB-T/H transmission parameters. When using hierarchy, the user has to choose which TS (HP or LP) the selected TS input is mapped to. The

other hierarchical TS is generated internally as a PRBS test sequence. In master mode, the MO-170 is able to work with any incoming bit rate as long as this is strictly lower than the value given in the DVB-T/H specification for the modulation parameters in use. The input TS bit rate is adapted to the useful bit rate required by the DVB-T/H signal by stuffing the TS with NULL packets (packet stuffing). This stuffing process alters the sequence of PCR values embedded in the TS. These values have to be re-stamped for the resultant PCR jitter to remain within the limits specified by the DVB. In hierarchical modes, operating the MO-170 as master has the added advantage over the slave mode of being able to use any of the three TS inputs as the HP input, LP input or both.

modes listed in the DVB-TH specification. In hierarchical modes, the HP and LP streams can be encoded with different convolutional code rates. The channel bandwidth can be set by the user to 6, 7 or 8 MHz as required by the application. Several test modes are available in the MO-170 (blanking of carriers, single tone output, test TS generation, CBER and VBER injection). DVB-H only features are 4k carriers, two extra TPS signalling bits (time slicing and MPE-FEC), native/ in-depth symbol interleaving and selectable transmitter cell ID. The operation of the MO-170 is done via the front panel LCD display and controls. The modulator can be easily configured by navigating through the intuitive set of menus.

The modulator can be configured to generate any of the transmission

DVB-T & DVB-H

MO-170 DVB-T/H Modulator The MO-170 is a multi-purpose DTT modulator providing a complete test suite which can be used to perform measurements at different points on the DVB-T signal chain. The wide selection of test options available in the MO-170 makes it the perfect companion for anybody interested in checking and validating a variety of critical aspects throughout the DVB-T system. It includes a wide range of test functions such as: - Internally generated test TS. - Carrier blanking. - Single carrier generation. - Controlled insertion of errored bits to emulate a given BER before or after the Viterbi decoder.

do not involve displaying a picture on a monitor, no external transport stream input is needed. The MO-170 automatically synthesises the bit rate needed to operate the modulator depending on the DVB-T parameters in use.

Spectrum hole unveilling the presence of intermodulation products within the channel

The MO-170 includes other novel features as an option (OP-170-E): - Addition of white Gaussian noise with selectable C/N. - Simulation of fixed and mobile multipath channels with up to 6 taps of variable amplitude, delay, phase and Doppler frequency. DVB-H is also possible as an option. These and other features present in the MO-170 simplify the set-up of complex test systems and allows measurements over real conditions without having to spend a fortune.

When a moving picture is required the GV-998 can be used to supply a test pattern through the ASI or SPI input.

Signal level alignment and in-band noise measurements (OP-170-E option)

Test Transport Stream When out-of-service tests are required the MO-170 can be used standalone, internally generating a test TS consisting of NULL packets filled up with PRBS payload data. If the tests

Blanking a set of contiguous carriers within the COFDM spectrum can help in measuring the levels of in-band noise (intermodulation products, Gaussian noise). The MO-170 allows to vary the width of the spectrum hole as well as its location within the channel.

COFDM signal power is measured by taking the average of the power within the channel. To simplify the process of aligning signal levels across a transmission or reception chain, the MO-170 can generate a single central carrier whose peak power is 3 dB above the average power of the DTT signal.

Getting your Bit Error Ratios right A unique feature of the MO-170 is the insertion of bit errors in different stages of the DVB-T modulation chain. This can help to check the accuracy of the BER estimation algorithms implemented in high-end professional receivers. A Channel BER (CBER or BER before the Viterbi decoder) ranging between 7.6×10 -6 and 1.25×10 -1 is generated by modifying the sequence of bits at the input to the constellation mapper. The MO-170 is also able to generate a Viterbi BER (VBER or BER after Viterbi) going from 3.7×10-9 to 6.2×10-2 by properly processing the bits at the output of the ReedSolomon encoder. The main advantage of this technique when compared with varying the C/N to get the

QEF VBER insertion in the MO-170 and BER measured by the TV EXPLORER

Start making noise (OP-170-E option)

A traditional set-up for measuring DVB-T performance versus C/N typically includes a source of wideband white Gaussian noise, an RF power meter plus selective channel filter or a spectrum analyser, and a varying number of high-precision variable attenuators and directional couplers. The C/N generation function available in the MO-170 makes this kit no longer required and allows a much simpler configuration. In the MO-170, white Gaussian noise with twice the bandwidth of the DVBT signal is digitally added to the COFDM signal. C/Ns between 3 and 40 dB in steps of 0.1dB can be selec-

ted. In addition, the RF signal level (COFDM and noise combined) can be further attenuated from 0 to 60 dB in 1 dB steps. This provides the means to either keep the signal power constant whilst varying the C/N (e.g. to plot the BER vs. C/N of a demodulator), or to keep the C/N constant whilst varying the signal power (e.g. to find the sensitivity of a receiver). The DVB-T signal may be switched off while the noise is still on, and vice versa. This way, noise and signal average powers can be measured externally using the appropriate equipment so as to verify the selected C/N reading. The fact that both noise and signal are digitally synthesised has the added benefit of generating C/Ns with a precision that is difficult to achieve in a traditional assorted test set-up.

Fixed/mobile multipath channels, SFN/MFN simulation and more (OP-170-E option) COFDM was the modulation chosen for digital terrestrial TV broadcasting because of its superior performance in dynamic and static multipath channels. A novel feature in the MO-170 is the possibility of simulating channels with up to 5 echoes (plus the main path) of variable attenuation (0 to 40 dBc in 0.1 dB steps), delay (0 to 445 ms), phase (0ยบ to 359.9ยบ with resolution of 0.1ยบ) and Doppler frequency (zero for fixed channels and ranging between -830 Hz and + 830 Hz in 0.1 Hz steps for mobile channels).

Amplitude and phase of fixed Ricean channel F1 simulated with the MO-170

Among other applications, the channel simulator can be successfully used to simulate the following scenarios: - Pre-echoes in a SFN or, in general, any power delay profile found in practice in single (MFN) & multiple transmitter (SFN) networks. - Static channels corresponding to roof-top fixed and portable reception. In particular, good 6-ray approximations can be generated for the F1 and P1 channels defined in Appendix B of document ETSI EN 300 744. Other 6-path profiles are those defined in Appendix K.2 of document ETSI TR 101 290. - Mobile channels with pure Doppler shift. An example of this is the 0 dB echo profile proposed in Appendix K.3 of document ETSI TR 101 290. The channel simulator may be used in conjunction with the C/N generator to evaluate the performance of a DVB-T system for a pre-defined multipath channel as a function of the amount of additive noise present in the channel.

 Options OP-170-H Compatibility with DVB-H

OP-170-P Output power of 6 dBm

DVB-H is defined mostly for mobile digital TV reception. The most important differences with the normal DVB-T are among others:

The standard version of the MO-170 has an output power of 0 dBm in IF and -30 dBm in RF. For those applications that require more output power this option offers +6 dBm in RF. IF remains at 0 dBm for that is quite a standard value.

It accepts IP encapsulated packets in the Transport Stream. It can be used with 4K carriers as a trade off between capacity and tolerance to multipath reception. It can be broadcast in 5, 6, 7 and 8 MHz bandwidth channels. With this option we can now test DVB-T as well as DVB-H receivers with one single test generator.

Having more RF output power is not only useful for test purposes but it is also very interesting when the MO-170 COFDM modulator is used as part of a signal distribution network. OP-170-E Noise and echoes generator Thanks to this option we can add noise, echoes or simulate multipath

MO-170 for Digital TV Signal Distribution The upcoming switch off for analogue channels combined with the drift towards production of flat screen televisions is moving the demand high for TV sets with integrated DTT receiver, called iDTV. The move is attractive to users for many reasons: it is an opportunity to get a larger screen display without having to place a huge box in the living room; the chance to get both the DTT receiver and TV set integrated without need for another external box and with only one remote control; the need for a better picture quality which is a must because even small impairments of the analogue signal are magnified on large screensâ&#x20AC;Ś From the technical point of view, there are a number of applications other than pure broadcasting, that see in the COFDM modulation a solution to specific problems. We can describe a few: The distribution of the DTT signal other than at a broadcast level have a limitation, the cost of the modulators. PROMAX is offering a low cost solution, the MO-170, so that you can be at the forefront of technology when you build your TV networks..

ENG for extreme TV transmissions It is a better alternative than traditional modulation systems for mobile applications such as ENG vans and helicopters due to its improved multi-path performance and the intrinsic modulation scheme. The COFDM signal transmits the infomation through 6817 carriers (for 8k system). If some carriers are lost, the missed data can be easily recovered by error coding. An extreme case is the performance in on-board cameras at F1 race cars. Other single carrier digital modulation solutions like QPSK or QAM have a worse response for these applications.

MO-170 Digital Terrestrial TV replaces Analogue TV Distribution inside buildings, hospitals, ships, trains, planes... The DTT is based in COFDM modulation which is an intrinsically robust method of transmitting signals. Its rugged nature allows signal distribution direct from the head-end to the receiver with minimum need for line amplifiers. Using a television with an integrated receiver, there is no need for extra external set top boxes at the reception site and reception is direct to the iDTV. This becomes a very tidy solution in buildings and it becomes a powerful alternative in those places where space is a critical issue like hospitals, ships, etc.

Wireless distribution for various applications Safety when the environmental conditions require a wireless transmission

Information systems in airports, stadiums, congresses, etc use standard iDTVs to display information.

DVB-T & DVB-H

MO-170 for Digital TV Signal Distribution Television on the road One rising application is the DVB-H, defined to solve the issue of the transmission in moving conditions. Here the OFDM modulators are needed again because of its multi-path performance. The purpose is to solve the reception in cars, trains, etc but mainly the reception in mobile devices such as phones, PDAs, etc.

Microwave links The OFDM modulation is also the type chosen to implement some Microwave link schemes. They are normally using COFDM modulation at 2 GHz and over for transmission and down-conversion into the UHF band for distribution and direct to the iDTV. In this systems, the use of iDTV receivers facilitate the reception of microwave links and UHF simultaneously.

A COFDM modulator can be an important part of many RF systems. That would be the case of modern digital MMDS transmitters for example. MO-170 accepts TS through ASI or SPI interfaces. Signal is then modulated into IF at 36 MHz and later on to RF anywhere in the VHF and UHF bands. IF or RF outputs can be further processed in RF to obtain any output frequency, i.e. 2,4 GHz, suitable for the MMDS application. We'd like to point out that we are also interested and we have already marketed the COFDM modulator as an isolated module to OEM transmitter producers.

MO-180 DVB-T/H Modulator for SFN & MFN Broadcasting

-H DVB -T DVB

Built-in Precorrector

SNMP compatible

10 MHz GPS reference input.

6 dBm output power (option)

The MO-180 is an SFN/MFN DVBT/H modulator fully compliant with the DVB-T/H specifications ETSI EN 300 744 v1.5.1 (including annex F referring to DVB-H), ETSI TS 101 191 v1.4.1 (SFN synchronisation) and ETSI EN 300 468 v1.6.1 (DVB-SI). The unit is contained in an standard 19â&#x20AC;? 1U chassis. The modulator has two DVB-ASI Transport Stream (TS) inputs and one DVB-SPI TS input. It also has a 1 pps and a 10 MHz input which, together with the MIP packet embedded in the transport stream, are used for SFN synchronisation purposes. A loop-through 10 MHz output is available as well. In MFNs we can operate the modulator in master and slave modes. In slave mode the modulator is locked to the incoming TS data rate, which is defined in document ETSI EN 300 744 for each choice of DVB-T/H transmission parameters. In master mode the modulator is locked to either the internal 10 MHz TCXO or to an external 10 MHz reference. The input bit rate has to be strictly smaller than the value given in the DVB-T/H specification. The MO-180 drops or inserts NULL TS packets as required to adapt the bit rate to the required value.

sync with the external 10 MHz reference can be used to make the modulator lock to the input TS rate, and vice versa. This means that disruptions to the output IF/RF COFDM signals are minimised. Periodic or aperiodic MIP packets are constantly monitored so as to dynamically adjust the delay of the modulator. In non-hierarchical transmissions the modulator seamlessly switches between ASI inputs when it detects a sync loss on the currently selected TS input. An additional test TS can be generated internally. This allows to generate compliant. DVB-T/H signals even in the absence of a valid TS input.

The channel bandwidth can be set to 5, 6, 7 and 8 MHz with no variation in performance. The DVB-T/H signal is output in both IF (36 MHz, 0 dBm) and RF (45 MHz to 875 MHz, at -27 dBm with the option of going up to 6 dBm) with a resolution of 1 Hz. The polarity of the spectrum may be set to normal or inverted. The MO-180 supports 2k, 4k and 8k modes and non-hierarchical and hierarchical transmissions. Several test modes are available (blanking of carriers, single tone output, test TS generation, CBER and VBER injection). The MER typically measured in IF is above 41 dB. In RF we measure MERs greater than 35 dB.

PID Filtering Transport streams coming from satellite receivers (QPSK) contain normally a high number of services and have too high bit rate to be connected to a COFDM modulator directly. MO-180 has a PID FILTERING function. This allows to enter a high speed transport stream, coming from a satellite receiver for instance, to the modulator ASI input at once. It is possible then to select a certain number of services from the original transport stream by entering their PIDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the MO-180 dedicated menu. The selected services are filtered and will not be modulated.

PCR re-stamping is implemented to minimise the impact of the bit rate adaptation process on the timing jitter of the MPEG-2 TS multiplex. In SFN mode, the modulator can be synchronised with the external 10 MHz GPS reference or with the incoming TS data rate. A loss of

TG-140 TS Recorder / Processor / Player

The TG-140 is a versatile MPEG-2 Transport Stream recorder and player that can be used in a great number of applications. It can record a transport stream continuously for several hours and then play it back later on at pleasure. Its recording capacity can be also split in plenty of shorter duration transport streams.

The Transport Streams can contain a single service or multiple ones so that the user can have full flexibility during the test phases of digital set top box or iDTV's design, manufacture or service.

Services included in the transport stream can be audio, video or data in MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 formats and can correspond to free to air or encrypted programs in standard definition (SDTV) or high definition (HDTV). The TG-140 comes with preloaded test transport streams that can be selected using the device front panel controls. Thanks to the PC computer interface and the web server functions the users can also edit or tailor the transport streams to their specific requirements.

Example of a pre-recorded test program

The TG-140 in combination with a digital modulator such as MO-170 for DVB-T for instance becomes a highly flexible and affordable digital broadcast signal simulator. The TG-140 is a two units rack electronic equipment. The TG-140 plays, records and processes Transport Stream files. A Transport Stream is a sequence of bytes containing audio, video and data. The TG-140 contains software programs to play, record, analyze, demultiplex and build Transport Streams.

TD-500 Professional Signal Combiner & Splitter

The TD-500 is a professional RF signal combiner and splitter that comes in a 19" 1U height rack format. It includes two idental groups of 4 inputs to 1 output that can be also used reversed (1 input splitted to 4 outputs). The frequency range is from 45 MHz to 875 MHz and the average insertion loss is: - From 45 MHz to 50 MHz 6.9 dB (typ), 7.3 dB (max) - From 50 MHz to 450 MHz 7.3 dB (typ), 8.1 dB (max) - From 450 MHz to 900 MHz 8.1 dB (typ), 9.3 dB (max)

Following is an example of one among many of the possible applications of the TD-500, MO-170 and TG-140. In this case we propose a complete digital television (DTT) head-end system to generate all signals required for a flat screen production plant or to allow multiple channel content playback in a hotel or cruise ship. The transport streams recorded in the TG-140â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s can simulate programs from all over the world in different formats. They are modulated in COFDM by the MO-170â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and then combined into a single RF output by TD-500.

MO-170 can also simulate a real broadcast reception environment no matter what the application is. The possibility to simulate echoes or preechoes for example is fundamental for testing of DTT receivers in extreme conditions. On other applications robustness of COFDM modulation and low cost of receivers are two good reasons to choose DTT for content delivery.

DVB-T Modulator MO-160 / 161 General overview The MO-160 / 161 is a general purpose DVB-T modulator contained in a 19" 1U chassis. The unit has one ASI MPEG-2 Transport Stream input. The MO-160 / 161 is able to work with any incoming bit rate as long as this is strictly lower than the value given in the DVB-T specification for the modulation parameters in use. The input TS bit rate is adapted to the useful bit rate required by the DVB-T signal by stuffing the TS with NULL packets (packet stuffing). This stuffing process alters the sequence of PCR values embedded in the TS. These values have to be re-stamped for the resultant PCR jitter to remain within the limits specified by the DVB.

The modulator can be configured to generate any of the transmission modes listed in the DVB-T specification. The channel bandwidth can be set by the user to 6, 7 or 8 MHz as required by the application. The operation of the MO-160 / 161 is done via the front panel LCD display and controls. The modulator can be easily configured by navigating through the intuitive set of menus.

QPSK TRANSMODULATOR MO-162 / MO-163

The MO-162 / MO-163 are direct QPSK to COFDM transmodulators. They convert a satellite transponder into a Digital Terrestrial Television channel. For it, the MO-162 / MO-163 allow the selection of the satellite transponder at the entrance and the output channel for the resulting multiplex. Obviously, it must be taken into consideration that the transport capacity of a DTT multiplex is lower to that one of a satellite transponder. Therefore, not all the services of a satellite transponder can fit into a single multiplex. For that reason the MO-162 / MO-163 allow the selection of the services to be transferred. The equipment is constructed on 1 unit chassis for assembly in a 19 " rack. It has one F type IF satellite input (950 MHz to 2150 MHz).

Transponder selection

The output coverage ranges from 475 MHz to 875 MHz for MO-162 and 45 to 875 MHz for MO-163 in 1 MHz steps. The output can be adjusted in steps of 1 dB and the MER is higher than 35 dB in all the channels. The COFDM modulation mode can be 2k or 8k carriers. The MO-162 / MO-163 are ideal for use in Terrestrial Digital Television distribution systems at hotels, hospitals and in general in any cable distribution system. The control of the operation of the MO-162 / MO-163 is been made very easy through an LCD on the frontal panel. All the functions of the transmodulator can be easily selected by means of an intuitive set of menus.

Services selection

Modulator

In this sample case, we use one MO-162 / MO-163 to select up to four services from a QPSK transponder and pack them in a COFDM multiplex. The MO-162 / MO-163 allow the selection of any of the transponders at the input. The next step will be to select the services that we wish to insert in the resulting multiplex. Finally, we can select the output channel or frequency for this resulting multiplex.

SFN/MFN DTMB MODULATOR MO-280

Compliant with China national standard 10MHz GPS reference input. Single Carrier and Multicarrier mode of operation High frequency resolution (in steps of 1 Hz) High MER

SNMP compatible

General description of the DTMB modulador MO-280 The MO-280 is a professional SFN/MFN DTMB modulator fully compliant with the GB20600-2006 and the GY/T 229. 1-2008 standards contained in a 19" 1U chassis.

The unit has two serial ASI MPEG-2 TS inputs, one 10 MHz GPS reference input and one 1pps GPS reference input. The GPS inputs are used in combination with the Second Frame Initialization Packet (SIP) embedded in the transport streams for SFN synchronisation purposes.

MFN mode

SFN mode

In MFN mode, the modulator is locked to either the internal 10 MHz TCXO clock reference or to the external 10 MHz GPS reference. In this mode, the MO-280 is able to work with any incoming bit rate as long as the net bit rate resulting from dropping all NULL packets present in the stream is strictly lower than the value given in the DTMB specification for the modulation parameters in use. The input TS bit rate is adapted (bit rate adaptation) to the useful bit rate required by the DTMB signal by stuffing the TS with NULL packets (packet stuffing).

In SFN mode, the modulator can be locked to either the external 10 MHz GPS reference or to the internal 10 MHz TCXO. A loss of sync with the external 10 MHz reference can be used to trigger a swap of the synchronisation over to the input TS rate. This reduces the number of disruptions to the output IF/RF signals. SIP packets are constantly monitored in the TS input so as to dynamically adjust the delay of the modulator for accurate SFN synchronisation. If required, a positive or negative delay offset with 100-ns resolution can be added locally.

This stuffing process alters the sequence of PCR values embedded in the TS. These values have to be re-stamped for the resultant PCR jitter to remain within the limits specified by the DTMB.

Two test modes are available in the MO-280, single tone output and test TS generation.

Control interface - Pushable rotary control on the front panel with navigation key and LCD display. - Two LEDs indicating the power and synchronisation status of the equipment. - RJ45 ethernet interface connector for remote control.

ISDB-T/TB MODULATOR

MO-370LE

High frequency resolution (in steps of 1 Hz)

High MER

General description of the ISDB-T/TB modulator MO-370LE The MO-370LE is a general purpose ISDB-T/TB modulator contained in a 19" 1U chassis. The unit has two serial MPEG TS-ASI inputs. Either of these inputs can be used to modulate the COFDM signal. The MO-370LE inputs are configured as I / F (1), point of interface 1, or I / F (2) point of interface 2. In the first case a TS composed by packets of 188 bytes is expected. An additional test signal can be internally generated. This fact allows inserting signals that are compatible with the ISDB-T/TB standard, even in the absence of a valid TS input. The bit rate must be always strictly lower than the value specified by the ISDB-T/TB standard. Internally, this rate is adapted (bit rate adaptation ) to the useful rate required by the ISDB-T/TB signal by means of filling a TS with NULL packets. This stuffing process alters the sequence of PCR values embedded in the TS. These values will be re-stamped so that the resulting PCR will remain within the limits specified by the ISDB-T/TB.

In the second case the TS input comprises 204 bytes packets where are included, in addition to the information to transmit, parameters for setting up and operating the modulator (BTS). The modulator can be configured to generate any of the transmission modes listed in the ISDB-T/TB specification. The MO-370LE has been designed to work in Multi Frequency Networks (MFN). Single Frequency Network (SFN) operation is not currently supported. For uses in SFN (Single Multifrequency Networks) refer to the MO-380 modulator.
