Sencore launches SMD 989 DVB-S2 modulator

The new SENCORE SMD 989 DVB-S2 offers unprecedented modulation efficiency and extreme flexibility, supporting the modulation of two independent DVB-S2 RF transmissions, says the company.

Packaged in a two-channel, 1RU chassis, this platform provides a flexible space- and transponder-saving solution for up-links. The modulator further accepts transport streams via DVB-ASI or IP inputs using the UDP or RTP protocols, which gives users the flexibility to accommodate changes over time. In addition, the SMD 989 features an optional agile L-band up-converter with an output frequency range of 950 to 2150 MHz; sustains all modulation formats defined in the DVB-S2 standard; and offers optional multi-stream inputs along with an agile RF up-converter.
