Compact DVB Satellite Receiver from Rohde & Schwarz Facilitates Industry's Transition to IP-based Solutions
Press release date: September 26, 2013
The new R&S AVG050 DVB satellite receiver from Rohde & Schwarz features two integrated DVB-S/DVB-S2 demodulators, is extremely compact, and can receive and decrypt multiple incoming transport streams from satellites. The output transport stream is distributed via ASI or IP.
Munich — The standalone R&S AVG050 DVB satellite receiver from Rohde & Schwarz fills a gap in the growing IP market. In conventional receivers, the demodulator function is usually offered in combination with an IRD (integrated receiver/ decoder). However, with the infrastructure for transmitter networks and closed user groups such as business TV and hospitality TV moving toward IP-based solutions, there is often no more need for decoding. For these applications, Rohde & Schwarz now offers a state-of-the-art, compact solution with a specific set of features.
The R&S AVG050 processes incoming signals for DVB-T/DVB-T2/DVB C/DVB-C2 networks. A built-in BISS descrambler and two CI slots are provided for DVB-compatible decryption. After decrypting the incoming streams, the R&S AVG050 can output them as an IP or ASI signal. The receiver's output signal can also be used in monitoring applications, e.g. for monitoring transport streams on a video wall.
A clearly organized user interface is provided for intuitive configuration and monitoring of the receiver. Automatic configuration and monitoring are also possible via an SNMP interface. The very compact satellite receiver is only half the width of a 19" rack and consumes very little power.
The R&S AVG050 DVB satellite receiver is now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
