Teleste Luminato digital headend platform can house various types of multiplexers and modulators in it's six module slots. Luminato quad QAM module, quad ASI module and dual/quad COFDM module provide an advanced platform for cable TV operators. They all enable a flexible multiplexing of SPTS and MPTS video services and also PSI/SI table streams. High quality QAM and COFDM modulation with agile up conversion provides easy adaptation to DVB-C and DVB-T delivery over HFC-network. In turn, ASI multiplexing module is ideal for an IP centric headend to create MPTS at the main headend for sending through DVB-ASI or IP network to remote headends.
Inbuilt content protection
Luminato quad QAM and quad ASI modules have the optional capability to do DVB Common Scrambling Algorithm 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
