The Teleste Luminato quad QAM modules provide an advanced DVB-C platform for Cable TV operators. The QAM module enables flexible multiplexing of SPTS and MPTS video services and also PSI/SI table streams. High quality QAM modulation with agile up conversion provides easy adaptation to DVB-C delivery over HFC-network.
The Luminato quad QAM multiplexers support selection of free-to-air and scrambled services from IP stream sources, which can be adjusted to the operator’s service line-up with the built-in advanced transport stream processing capabilities. The Luminato quad QAM module support Standard Definition, High Definition and 3D video in CBR and VBR formats and numerous audio formats. Optional content protection can be done based on DVB simulcrypt standard.
Luminato quad QAM module is fully compatible with the high-performance Luminato chassis, where it can be fitted freely to any of the six module slots. In accordance with the Luminato system architecture, the video processing is performed on the quad QAM modules, which enables low-cost applications even with partially equipped chassis, while having the performance scalability to fully equipped chassis.
Complete cable TV headend in 1 RU
One or more Quad QAM modules can be included in 1 RU Luminato platform with Luminato satellite, terrestrial, cable, IP and DVB-ASI receivers, together forming a complete cable TV headend. The flexible architecture enables complementing service bouquet with locally received content in the edge of the network.
Embedded content protection
Quad QAM module has the optional capability to do DVB Common Scrambling Algorithm and AES content protection. The embedded scrambling doesn’t require any additional hardware and the user can freely select which services will be scrambled. Component level scrambling is also supported to allow only video and audio scrambling and leave other streams untouched to avoid descrambling challenges in set-top boxes.
Currently Luminato supports the following scrambling systems:
||Digital Video Networks (DVN)
|Compunicate Technologies inc.
Efficiency and reliability
With the advanced transport stream processing, operators can select the services and components which are relevant to their network. The Luminato will follow-up any changes on the stream to automatically readjust the processing to provide uninterrupted service. This will allow the operator to efficiently manage network capacity usage.
Thanks to a high degree of automated functions the cost of system set-up and operation is minimised. This reduces downtime due to changes in the received services.
