Luminato multiplexer enables flexible multiplexing of SPTS and MPTS video services and also PSI/SI table streams. The multiplexer is ideal for an IP centric headend to create MPTS at the main headend and send them through to IP network to remote headends.
The Luminato quad ASI output module 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 ASI output module support Standard Definition, High Definition and 3D video in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC video formats and numerous audio formats.
Luminato quad ASI output 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 ASI output modules, which enables low-cost applications even with partially equipped chassis, while having the performance scalability to fully equipped chassis.
Embedded content protection
Quad ASI 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. The component level scrambling is also supported to allow only video and audio scrambling and leave other streams untouched to avoid descrambling challenges for bursty data in set-top box.
Efficiency and reliability
With the advanced transport stream processing, operator can select the services and components which are relevant to his 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.
