Meet Your Next Generation Broadcast Platform - M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator

Monday 16 April 2012


This is the product launch movie of the Newtec M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator.

The M6100 is the new generation DVB-S2, DVB-DSNG and DVB-S modulator specifically designed for contribution of television and radio content, primary distribution of content and broadcast direct-to-home (DTH). It interoperates seamlessly with DVB set-top boxes, professional IRDs and satellite demodulators.

The Newtec M6100 is built ground-up to bring solutions to the challenges broadcasters and satellite operators face today:

  • Maintaining and growing current business
  • Improving the quality of service
  • Lowering the total cost of ownership
  • Combatting radio frequency interference
  • Migrating contribution and distribution satellite infrastructure to a single, multi-service IP network
  • Being prepared to benefit from upcoming DVB-S2 standard extensions

The M6100 meets all of these challenges with various new and unique functionalities. Carrier-ID insertion is a new capability; a built-in MPEG transport stream analyser offers fast trouble shooting; the sub-second redundancy switchover times are industry-leading; SMPTE 2022 Forward Error Correction (FEC) facilitates remote headend deployment, and a lot more.

There are many innovations in Newtec’s new modulator that increase satellite transponder efficiency like the automated Equalink®, Clean Channel Technology™ and the opportunistic data insertion, i.e. Multi Protocol Encapsulation (MPE). The increased efficiency can be used to either lower the yearly operational expenses, to launch more services in the same transponder space or to provide a better quality of service.

The M6100 is built upon flexible and programmable technology, making it a future-proof building block capable of evolving any satellite network to carry next generation services to customers and consumers.

Scalable pay-as-you-grow licencing facilitates the launch of new services or last minute network design changes without rebuilding the entire network infrastructure. Migration from ASI to IP or IF to L-Band interfaces are also made possible using simple in-field installation of license keys.
