The Newtec Horizon Series HZ410 is a professional Satellite to Terrestrial Transceiver used
in mobile and terrestrial television networks where the content is
distributed to the transmission towers via satellite.
The HZ410 integrates a satellite demodulator, a DVB-S/S2 filtering
module, an interface card with multiple ASI and IP outputs and a
DVB-T/DVB-H COFDM modulator.
The HZ410 transceivers are compact units to be installed in
each of the remote transmission towers. Each transceiver unit
integrates all the building blocks necessary to receive one
satellite carrier transporting one or several television multiplexes,
extract one or several television multiplexes from this carrier,
synchronize one of these multiplexes with other transmission
towers (for SFN operation) and modulate this signal to be
transmitted terrestrially to the set-top boxes or mobile handsets.
A second multiplex can be made available on the second (LP)
input of the terrestrial modulator while additional multiplexes
extracted from the satellite carrier can be distributed by the
HZ410 to external terrestrial modulators via ASI or IP.
The HZ410 offers the possibility to work in Multistream mode, an
advanced feature of the DVB-S2 standard. This technology allows
the operator to distribute multiple multiplexes on the same
satellite carrier. This Multistream functionality does not effect
the content of the multiplexes and is therefore fully compatible
with SFN operation. Unlike multiple carrier configurations, this
mode of satellite transmission allows operating near transponder
saturation and therefore optimizes the bandwidth efficiency.

The core application of Horizon is the primary distribution of
TV signals to terrestrial towers in mobile TV or Terrestrial TV
networks. The HZ410 supports the following operation modes:
Primary distribution of DVB-T or DVB-H content to
Distribution of DVB-T or DVB-H services together with
other services sent on the same satellite carrier
Deployment in regional towers where intermediary
processing by external devices need to take place
between the satellite reception and the re-modulation
This product can be installed in any transmission site, from highpower
one to smaller gapfillers.
