TeamCast Neptune

Satellite Demodulator

TeamCast Neptune is a powerful, up to date and very flexible DVB-S/S2/S2X satellite demodulation platform, associated with very high RF performances.

Applications

  • MPEG-TS Broadcast contribution/distribution
  • DVB-S2X DSNG Contribution
  • DVB-T/T2 DTT Distribution with multistream (8 ISI)
  • ASI & IP interfaces
  • IP distribution
  • OTT contribution with MPE-1 & GSE-1
  • DAB/FM DTT with EDI transport

Highlights

Dense chassis

TeamCast Neptune 1U Rack chassis is equivalent to 8 independant demodulators running with thier own carrier frequency with one or two RF inputs. Objectives are:
1/ reduce cabling in front of the rack when several carrier over same polarization
2/ keep RF sensitivity to always extract signal even if low C/N margin

Full implementation of DVB-S2 & S2X standard

TeamCast Neptune integrates the latest FPGA technology required to perform high quality modulation based on the DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X standards up to 256APSK and 80/125/250/500Mbits/s

Ready for efficient DTT distribution

TeamCast Neptune is able to extract up to 8 ISI in parallel with a smooth process to respect the ETR-290 requirements. Each MPEG-TS stream (identifed by its ISI label) can be route either to ASI and/or TSoIP outputs. These outputs feed terrestrial modulators by respecting the SFN constraint. By adding an embedded MPEG-TS matrix, TeamCast Neptune allows terrestrial modulator inputs redundancy

Flexible demodulator

TeamCast Neptune is the latest generation of satellite demodulator fully compliant with the
DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X standards. It is a high performance demodulator for advanced
DVB satellite reception supporting all DVB-S2X confgurations up to 210Mbps over 8 ASI
outputs as well as 500Mbps over 2 Ethernet ports with its dual L-Band inputs with independent LNB controller on each RF input.

Hybrid demodulation

TeamCast Neptune is able to manage MPEG-TS from ASI and IP traffic from Ethernet on the same carrier. Also MPEG-TS contents as well as IP data content could be demodulated and out over ASI/IP
