Newtec M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator

The Newtec M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator is the new generation DVB-S2, DVB-DSNG and DVB-S modulator specifically designed for broadcast direct-to-home, primary distribution to headends and contribution of television and radio content.

Newtec’s M6100 Next Generation Broadcast Satellite Modulator is not just a modulator. It’s a platform that takes a vital role in your networks, performs the best on the market and helps you evolve your business through ongoing market and technology innovations. The M6100 can be used in conjunction with set-top boxes, professional IRD’s or professional satellite demodulators such as the AZ910.

Delivering the highest uptime for vital links

Uptime and reliability are essential in the design of the modulator, taking a vital role in the satellite network. Input source redundancy, and the shortest redundancy switch-over times of modulators, operating both in 1+1 and N+1 topologies, are setting the standard in our industry.

Advanced capabilities such as a built-in MPEG Transport Stream analyser, support of SMPTE 2022 FEC at the GbE inputs (for distributed IP headends), and native support of Carrier ID insertion in the NIT table of the Transport Stream further increase uptime and QoS.

Get the best performance and lower your costs

The Broadcast Satellite Modulator performs among the best, offering unmatched bandwidth efficiency optimization options, thereby lowering
overall Total Cost of Ownership. The fully automated operation of Newtec´s field-proven Equalink® pre-distortion technology is now available for any satellite transmission application. Equalink pre-distortion provides up to 10% bandwidth gains.

The modulator also supports Clean Channel TechnologyTM, the first in a series extensions to DVB-S2, further improving satellite efficiency by up to 15%, enabling much smaller carrier spacing.

At the output of the Broadcast Satellite Modulator, the signal is available in IF or extended L-band (950 MHz-2150 MHz), providing a compact and cost-effective solution. A switchable 10 MHz reference signal for an outdoor BUC is multiplexed on the L-band interface.

The Broadcast Satellite Modulator can be easily monitored and controlled via a comprehensive front panel menu, advanced web GUI as well as via SNMP protocol. This enables easy integration into any industry-standard EMS/NMS system.

Evolve towards tomorrow’s technology
Built upon flexible and latest generation programmable technology, the Broadcast Satellite Modulator is a future-proof building block that lets any satellite network evolve to the next level of capabilities. A scalable, pay-as-you-grow, licensing and software upgrade mechanism facilitates the launch of new services, or last minute network design changes, without rebuilding the entire network infrastructure. Migration from ASI to GbE and IF to L-band are established using simple in-field installation of license keys.

Additional capabilities such as DVB-S2 extensions, RF Carrier ID and other are anticipated to become available on the platform as
the standardization efforts materialise in the near future.
