MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem


MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem


The Newtec MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem is the next generation DVB compliant modem specifically designed for broadcast applications. The modem supports the DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X, next to the legacy DVB-S and DVB-DSNG standards, as well as Newtec S2 Extensions in order to achieve barrier-breaking efficiency. The unit can act as a single Transport Stream modulator, demodulator or modem.

As a modulator, it is best suited for broadcast direct-to-home, primary distribution to headends and contribution of television and radio content. As a modem or demodulator, it is typically installed in head-ends or at both sides of a contribution link. The MDM6100 can be used in conjunction with set-top boxes, professional IRDs or professional satellite demodulators.

Add To Cart

Flexible and latest generation technology

The MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem is a future-proof building block that lets any satellite network evolve to the next level of capabilities.

Migration of standard distribution links towards DVB-S2X can be as simple as inserting an MDM6100 modem in the head-ends while keeping the installed base of IRDs.

Get the Best Performance and Lower Your Costs

The broadcast satellite modulator performs among the best, offering unmatched bandwidth efficiency optimization options, thereby lowering overall Total Cost of Ownership. The fully automated operation of Newtec’s field-proven Equalink® 3 pre-distortion technology with its seamless calibration is now available for any satellite transmission application providing up to 10% bandwidth gains for single carrier per transponder constellations.

Clean Channel Technology®, in combination with DVB-S2X or Newtec S2 Extensions, improves satellite efficiency by up to 15%, thereby enabling much smaller carrier spacing.

Maximum symbol rates up to 72 Mbaud and modulations up to 256APSK (DVB-S2X standard) combined with VCM (Variable Coding and Modulation) allow for maximum throughput of up to six transport streams in large contribution links. The powerful MPE encapsulator gives access to dual stream communication where live video is combined with file transfer, a service channel or video streaming.
