DVB-S/S2 Satellite Modulator

SMD 989
The SENCORE SMD 989 professional satellite modulator is ideal for MPEG Transport Stream transmission using DVB-S/S2/S2X or Broadcom TurboPSK modulation. Leveraging the latest modulation technology, the SMD provides high-value solution with unmatched signal quality.
 
Support for DVB-S2X Modulation ensures the SMD 989 will be ready for the future of S2 modulation. Integrated processing features such as TR 101 290 error checking and BISS scrambling make the SMD 989 an ideal solution for video delivery.
 
The optional, built-in L-Band upconverter enables the SMD 989 to provide an IF or L-band output. This eliminates the need for multiple pieces of equipment and provides a compact solution for facilities housing multiple modulators or for insertion into L-band inter-facility links.
 
The chassis has two bays allowing for a variety of configurations, including two independent modulators for density, redundant power supplies for reliability, or DC BUC power for truck installs.
