DTTCaster for HDc

DVB-T/T2/ISDB-T/Tb demodulator

Professional DVB-T/T2/ISDB-T/Tb demodulator

The DTTCaster is a multi-standard DTT professional demodulator that supports DVB-T, DVB-T2 and ISDB-T/Tb standards.  At the same time, it can receive DVB-T, DVB-T2 and ISDB-T/Tb signals and output the MPEG-2 TS over ASI and IP. In DVB-T2 environment, it can generate a deterministic T2-MI stream in SPLP or MPLP to enable content rebroadcasting over SFN.

Applications

  • DVB-T signal rebroadcasting
  • DVB-T2 signal rebroadcasting in SFN
  • ISDB-T/Tb signal rebroadcasting with TbEdge
  • Build-up a backup DTT distribution network
  • Cable networks rebroadcasting

Highlights

Reduce OPEX costs

The DTTCaster aims at rebroadcasting a DTT signal in MFN or SFN from a parent transmitter without the need of an additional distribution network to reach the child retransmitters. Low cost solution compared to satellite reception. The solution can be used to provide a straightforward backup of another distribution network.

Low CAPEX

The DTTCaster offers a very cost-effective solution by managing 4x DTT frequencies independently and supporting various standards. It offer a low cost solution compared to satellite reception that requires much more expensive materials in C-band environment.

DVB-T2 unique SFN rebroadcasting

The DTTCaster can generate a deterministic T2-MI stream from a T2 parent transmitter to rebroadcast a DVB-T2 signal over SFN. It supports single PLP and multiple PLP generation.

High Density solution

The DTTCaster can demodulate up to 4x DTT frequencies. In the same ENENSYS HDc chassis, it is possible to operate 6x DTTCaster in 1U to offer the demodulation of up to 24x different RF signals.

Key points

  • Demodulate up to 4x DVB-T/T2/ISDB-T/Tb signals independently
  • Support T2-base and T2-lite RF signals
  • Deterministic T2-MI generation for DVB-T2/SFN rebroadcasting
  • ISDB-T/tb rebroadcasting in SFN or MFN when associated with the TbEdge
  • PID filtering to update incoming MPEG-2 TS
  • Output MPEG-2 TS over ASI and IP
