The Newtec HZ930 Satellite Receiver and Deconcentrator displays
Newtec’s vast understanding of the challenge of distributing
different television multiplexes to a number of remote terrestrial
transmission sites over satellite.
Transparent and efficient transport of content are key elements
for each player in the primary distribution of terrestrial and
The HZ930 makes use of the innovative proprietary concentration
technology by Newtec. This technology combines up to 8
MPEG Transport streams into a single stream without changing
their content. The resulting stream remains compatible with
MPEG/DVB transmission equipment such as modulators or ATM
The HZ930 is installed at the receiving end of Newtec’s
The Newtec concentration - deconcentration solution guarantees
the integrity of the initial Transport stream at the receiving end.
The output of the HZ930 is bit-by-bit identical to the signal
transmitted by the play out centre. This feature is essential in
networks with strict synchronization requirements like SFN
networks where adjacent towers are transmitting on the same
The HZ930 supports both DVB-S and DVB-S2 modulation
standards and allows deconcentration up to 4 ASI streams.
The mapping between the streams and the outputs is fully
programmable, enabling the use of the HZ930 as a matrix router
to send Transport streams to various access points in a network.
A descrambling feature has been added to protect each stream
individually against piracy.
The HZ930 is easy to operate and monitor. All control and
monitoring parameters are available locally on the front panel
and remotely through a web interface. It is also possible to control
or monitor the AZ930 via RMCP or SNMP.

by other parties.
1. Primary distribution of digital television
Newtec has engineered the perfect solution to increase the
efficiency of satellite bandwidth usage. Transport streams from
different broadcasters or intended for different regions can be
bundled on the same satellite carrier. Cable head-ends and
terrestrial/mobile TV remote transmitters can now benefit from
optimized feeder links over satellite. Additionally this solution is
fully compatible with SFN requirements and allows protecting the
different Transport streams independently.
2. ASI networking and routing
The matrix routing function enables routing between the
multiple inputs and the multiple outputs of the concentrator and
In a cabled or wireless network, the combined Transport streams
can be deconcentrated and the signals extracted individually in
order to send the required transport streams to various access
points in the network.
