Multistream is a main advantage of the DVB-S2 standard that allows users to aggregate a number of independent transport streams or IP streams into one satellite carrier in a fully transparent manner, maintaining the integrity of the original content.

Multistream is ideally used for Primary Distribution of Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) and Mobile TV over satellite.
  • From headend equipment to tower equipment, lowest number of devices
  • No need for remultiplexing at the towers
  • 1-4 multiplexes distribution with only 1 Receiver (e.g. compared with 4 IRD’s!)
  • Less satellite bandwidth needed compared with DVB-S
  • Distribution of multiple services (Terrestrial TV, Mobile TV, Radio and IP) in a single carrier
  • Ability to saturate the transponder and gain up to 12% bandwidth on top of the gain brought by DVB-S2.
  • Single Frequency Network (SFN) compliant
  • Lower number of frequencies necessary
  • Fully interoperable, transparent and compliant with the DVB-S2 standard
