Chers lecteurs,
De lavis gnral, il semblerait que la TVHD est ddie la tlvision payante, ce qui signie que nous sommes censs payer pour un contenu de haute dnition alors que la TV standard reste disponible gratuitement. Un constat sur les pays qui possdent dj les chanes HD oprationnelles semble conforter cette hypothse. Pourtant, si lon se penche de plus prs sur certains pays, la question qui se pose est de savoir si tout ce qui brille est de lor, ou en dautres termes: Recevons-nous vraiment la HD parce que tout simplement la chaine utilise un slogan HD? Pas du tout ! Pour certains pays, toute retransmission numrique est considre comme HD, de sorte que SD signie lanalogique et le HD est synonyme de numrique - Et cest tout. Le terme haute dnition lui-mme est sujet interprtation trs vaste et dans de nombreux cas, il est dtermin par le service marketing dun rseau plutt que par des spcications techniques globalement tablies. Dans quelques temps, la HD deviendra probablement une extension universelle pour toute chaine TV. Est-ce dire quun jour, nous allons recevoir uniquement des chanes TV HD? Et qui aura le dernier mot de dire ce qui est HD ou qui ne lest pas? La plupart des chanes HD disponibles actuellement, transmettent simplement leur contenu juste en mettant niveau leurs offres rgulires. Mais quoi bon tout cela lorsque votre dmodulateur TVHD habituel est en mesure de transformer virtuellement presque tout contenu initial la rsolution HD? En tant que spectateurs, lon ne se proccupe mme pas de savoir si limage que nous voyons sur notre cran est rehausse par le fournisseur ou par notre rcepteur. Et si nous suivons ce raisonnement, nous pourrions mme aller jusqu afrmer que toute personne ayant un rcepteur TVHD la maison regarde tous les canaux en haute dnition. Ou du moins, ceci nous pousse le croire. Comment, peut-on alors, savoir si une soi-disant mission de TVHD est totalement HD initialement? La rponse est simple: On lignore. La seule faon de savoir avec certitude, cest de regarder de trs prs certaines caractristiques de limage ce qui est une tache assez inutile pour le commun des citoyens. Au fait, vous vous en souvenez de la duperie Hi-Fi avec la radio FM ; il ya quelques dcennies? Mme le plus bas de gamme radio portable tait commercialis avec un logo Hi-Fi, plac bien en vue, bien que le son quil produisait, tait loin de cela. lheure actuelle, nous vivons un dj-vu quand il sagit de la

TVHD. Durant longtemps, tous les canaux TV, tous les rcepteurs et chaque faade de TV vanteront dtre HD. Indpendamment de ce qui est rellement regard. Cest le nouveau monde courageux de la TVHD, et nous devons tout de mme sy habituer.

Dans un numro prcdent de Tl-satellite (08-09/2010), nous avions signal un nouveau fabricant de rcepteur AB IPBox de la Slovaquie. Maintenant nous avons entre nos mains, leur modle phare, lAB IPBox 9900HD Plus. Ce modle double tuner est livr avec deux tuners DVBS2. Un modle 9900HD est galement disponible, il est identique, sauf quil prsente le choix dun deuxime tuner pour un second DVB-S, DVB-C (cble) ou TNT (terrestre). Tous les rcepteurs IPBox dans cette gamme utilisent Enigma2 HD - Une version du systme dexploitation open source de Linux. Donc, cest rellement un ordinateur spcialis la rception satellite dans un appareil de dimensions dun rcepteur satellite .Le nombre de fonctions et doptions disponibles est surprenant, et les promesses pour dautres add-ons (ajout dapplications) et plug-ins le rendent vraiment passionnant pour ceux qui aiment personnaliser et amliorer leur exprience.

Notre modle de test avait un botier mtallique blanc ce qui le diffrenciait de lhabituel noir ou argent. La face avant est dcore avec un design en style oral lgant, ce qui lui permet certainement dtre unique dans le tas. Ceux sont probablement des chrysanthmes, mais ne me prenez pas au mot l-dessus. Une version toute aussi lgante en noire est galement disponible. Le panneau frontal comporte les boutons ncessaires pour le fonctionnement de base qui se trouvent au dessous de lafchage. Lafchage est trs lumineux effectivement, assez pour donner une lueur bleu/verte dans une pice bien sombre. Aprs avoir regard la tlvision dans une pice sombre avec le rcepteur en dessous de la TV, lune des premires choses que jai commenc chercher cest la fonction pour assombrir lafchage. a peut devenir gnant. Une autre solution, bien que tout fait inadquate, a t de placer un botier DVD en

face de lafchage!. Sous le capot avant, il y a deux cames, deux emplacements pour cartes Conax et un port USB. Il ya un autre port USB larrire qui est mieux adapt pour le raccordement appropri dun disque dur externe et avec cela, il existe aussi la possibilit de brancher un disque SATA externe. Chacune des deux entres du tuner possde une sortie en boucle correspondante. Il a presque toutes les connexions possibles pour les appareils audio et vido: Deux prises pritel, vido composite et composante, HDMI, S/PDIF et il ya un modulateur UHF pour envoyer limage vers les bons vieux TV laide de cble antenne. Est disponible galement, une sortie 0/12V, qui devient trs rare ces derniers temps, mais trs utile pour ceux qui continuent en faire usage. Puisque le rcepteur fonctionne sous un systme dexploitation plus puissant que dhabitude, la mise en marche et lafchage de limage sur lcran prennent un peu plus de temps. Le processus de dmarrage prend environ deux minutes pour se terminer. Le premier dmarrage comprend un assistant de rglage

vido intelligent pour aider au rglage dune meilleure luminosit et le contraste, et cela peut tre refait ensuite dans le menu de conguration, en cas de besoin. La conguration de satellite peut tre aussi simple ou complique selon vos besoins. Les rglages simples devraient sufre la plupart des gens et contiennent toutes les options dutilisation de la tte (LNB) simple par le biais de commutateurs DiSEqC, de positionneurs et USALS. Le Mode Avanc fournit plusieurs autres options gnralement invisibles, ce qui pourrait tre dune grande aide ceux qui ont une collection dassiettes et commutateurs compliqus. Si mme cela ne suft pas, un menu distinct Satellite-Equipement Setup existe avec encore plus doptions. Lafchage de ce menu, est prcd par le message Prire de ne modier aucune valeur sauf si vous savez ce que vous faites! et cest certainement un conseil qui devrait tre observ. La recherche de chanes nest pas trop rapide. Un balayage

de ASTRA 1 prend environ huit minutes. Les nouvelles chanes trouves aprs la recherche sont localises dans une partie distincte de la liste des canaux, ce qui est une bonne ide. La liste des chanes est un peu diffrente que dhabitude, et le cassette que jai eu initialement a disparu aprs que jai pris un peu de temps pour comprendre comment tout cela fonctionne et la meilleure faon de sen servir. Les canaux peuvent tre regroups par satellite, fournisseur, ou groupe de favoris. La fonction favoris est plus pratique que dans la plupart des autres rcepteurs. A lintrieur de la liste des favoris, des groupes de canaux peuvent tre ajouts ceux que le rcepteur se rfre comme bouquet. Ne pas confondre avec le langage courant des termes satellite usits pour un groupe de chanes dun transpondeur, alors ceux ci pourraient tre un groupe de canaux avec un nom modiable par lutilisateur, comme musique, sports, etc

Lecture des enregistrements

A partir de la liste des fournisseurs dans la liste des canaux, on pourrait ajouter tous les canaux de lun deux et cela apparatra alors comme un autre bouquet de favoris. Une fois que vous vous avez saisi comment tout cela fonctionne, a devient chose trs facile utiliser. Une autre option judicieuse, cest lajout du programme en cours qui est list cot du nom de canal dans la liste. Jai trouv lEPG intgr, un peu moins rvlateur en premier temps. Deux modes sont disponibles immdiatement, le premier donnant linformation sur uniquement le programme actuel, et les touches ches permettent de se dplacer vers les missions suivantes avec une page la fois. La page EPG multiple liste tous les canaux - Filtr par bouquet en cas de besoin - avec les programmes en cours afchs. Et bien sur, les touches ches pour faire dler la liste vers la suite. Lafchage traditionnel en style de grille ma manqu en particulier, lorsquon devait programmer des enregistrements dans les limites de la capacit de tuner. Ctait jusqu ce que je trouve une touche de raccourci sur la tlcommande

qui ma donn tout ce que jen avais besoin. Alors que le raccourci en appuyant sur la touche bleu puis 2 est mentionn dans le manuel comme raccourci la radio internet, il afche lEPG en style de grille parfait, Bien que maintenant jaimerai avoir ma radio internet qui me manque galement! A partir de lEPG, les vnements peuvent tre ajouts la programmation. Pour ajouter un enregistrement, chose simple, il suft dappuyer sur vert-vert et cest fait. Dautres options sont disponibles en cas de besoin - Au lieu denregistrer, le rcepteur peut tre programm pour simplement zapper sur le programme et ne pas lenregistrer. Une option supplmentaire pour notre - prcieuse poque dconomie dnergie cest loption pour aller lun des deux modes dconomie dnergie, veille ou mise en veille profonde, aprs que lvnement se termine. Les faits enregistrs peuvent tre accessibles partir de la liste des enregistrements avec la touche chiers spcique, ou du lecteur multimdia. Ce dernier lira galement des chiers multimdias dans un certain nombre de formats,

y compris Xvid, DivX et MP3. Les images xes peuvent galement tre consultes. Le lecteur multimdia semble lgrement difcile utiliser, mais la touche daide de la tlcommande est trs pratique ici lorsquon a besoin dun rappel sur les touches requises pour telle action. Un grand bravo doit tre lanc lIPBox pour lvocation dune chose qui devrait tre rellement standard mais omise dans de nombreux PVR - Le texte descriptif du programme EPG est pris en charge ds lenregistrement. Les menus, parfois ralentissent quelque peu, lors des enregistrements, un petit graphique dune roue en rotation dans le coin de lcran apparat pour indiquer que la machine est occupe.

La patience est parfois ncessaire en attendant que cela disparaisse, mais au moins quand cela est arriv, hormis mon mal dimpatience, mes enregistrements taient parfaitement intacts. La qualit dimage partir du rcepteur est excellente, mme certains chantillons de chiers Xvid de mes archives sont apparus meilleurs que dhabitude aprs avoir subis une mise niveau sur un cran HD. Les disques durs externes et cartes mmoires ash peuvent tre utiliss, la lecture partir de ces mdias est aussi bonne que du lecteur interne. Copier des chiers entre priphriques internes et externes, est hors porte de mes connaissances cependant. Je ne pouvais pas tout simplement trouver un moyen de le faire. Donc, un gestionnaire de chiers comme plug-in ou quelque chose de semblable serait galement sur ma liste essentielle des add-ons. Cette fonction, apparemment manquante, ma cependant bouscul connecter lIPBox mon rseau dordinateur

via le port Ethernet. Rgler ceci tait simplement similaire ajouter un ordinateur - si lon utilise le DHCP, une adresse et les paramtres peuvent tre trouvs automatiquement. Si les rglages manuels sont ncessaires, ils sont tous l et je suis er de dire que mon rcepteur communiquait avec le monde extrieur ds la premire tentative, quelque chose que je ne pouvais prtendre avoir toujours russi avec ma collection dordinateurs. Non mentionn dans le manuel, cest la possibilit dutiliser les deux protocoles Telnet et FTP pour communiquer avec le rcepteur. Heureusement que la recherche rapide de lInternet ma facilit la tache en trouvant le nom dutilisateur et mot de passe par dfaut, sinon mes expriences auraient t rapidement balayes par une longue srie de devinette de nom. Au fait, le nom dutilisateur est root, le mot de passe: ipbox. En utilisant le FTP, jai t en mesure de faire le transfert des enregistre-

ments sur un ordinateur. Ils sont en format standard. Ts, ce qui signie quils peuvent tre manipuls et modis laide de logiciels standard MPEG, De nombreuses applications freeware sont disponibles pour ce faire. Il aurait t agrable davoir une fonction simple pour copier les chiers vers un priphrique externe, mais en utilisant le rseau, cela signie que si larchivage est exig, tout peut se faire sans aucun disque, mmoire ash, cassettes vido ou tout autre mdia .Transfrez-les sur le rseau, les diter et les encoder si ncessaire, et mme les renvoyer la machine en format Xvid pour les regarder nouveau! ca fonctionne trs bien. Avec le rcepteur branch sur le monde extrieur, il est possible dajouter et de faire la mise niveau de son soft. Le moyen plus simple se fait via le menu des plug-ins de la machine .Cela se connecte un serveur de www.enigma. satupdate.net o des plug-ins et les paramtres de rglage sont disponibles. Jai t un peu du de constater que trs peu de logiciels taient disponibles au moment de cette vrication. Heureusement que dautres seront disponibles lavenir. Il y avait cependant un joyau l-bas qui devait tre ajout - Linterface web. Installe sur le

serveur en peu de temps, linterface Web ajoute un autre niveau de communication avec le monde extrieur. Surfer ladresse IP du rcepteur partir dun navigateur web apporte une interface adapte la conception du rcepteur. Ici, la liste des chanes et lEPG peuvent tre consults, et des enregistrements ajouts. Avec un petit port en redirection dans votre routeur, cela pourrait tre alors accessible depuis nimporte o avec Internet. Donc, la prochaine fois lorsque vous tes au bureau ou en vacances et vous avez oubli denregistrer quelque chose, aucun problme - Il suft de se connecter internet et de tout faire partir de l! Les dtails du programme donnent ici mme un lien vers la base de donnes Internet de lms (www.imdb. Com) pour chaque programme. Les enregistrements peuvent tre tlchargs partir dici, au format. Ts - Encore plus facile que ma mthode FTP et les chaines de Tlvision et les enregistrements peuvent tre mme dirigs vers le lecteur multimdia. Jai russi avec les vnements enregistrs, mais pas avec des retransmissions en direct. Quil soit un bug de mon ct ou dune incomprhension de rcepteur. Comme si tout cela nest pas dj sufsant,

16 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

une fentre avec une tlcommande virtuelle peut tre utilise pour accder toutes les fonctions du rcepteur. A chaque pression de touche, une capture dcran de lafchage (Sans aucune image TV) est actualise lcran. Cela signie que vous pouvez avoir le contrle total du rcepteur, partir de nimporte quel endroit o vous avez un accs Internet. De mme, la scurit na pas t omise, les protocoles SSL et la protection par mot de passe peuvent tre activs en cas de besoin. Toutes ces fonctionnalits et options sont extraordinaires. Il suft de voir les options dans les tableaux du menu de conguration pour avoir une ide de ce qui est disponible pour peauner et modier lIPBox selon vos propres prfrences. Le plus excitant est bien sr; la nature open source de Linux avec loption de tiers-partie quil apporte des add-ons et de logiciels amliors. Et cest l que lIPBox russira ou chouera. Le manuel fournit un assez bon travail en donnant un rsum de toutes les fonctions rgulires du rcepteur satellite, et vous indique comment mettre jour et ajouter des logiciels, mais les secrets et la complexit de Linux restent insaisissables. Le rcepteur fait appel

tous ceux qui veulent tirer le meilleur prot en exploitant pleinement la puissance du systme dexploitation. Tout ce qui sera ncessaire pour donner au rcepteur le succs mrit, doit tre la disponibilit des logiciels supplmentaires avec un guide de la faon de les installer et les utiliser. Lespace de stockage de logiciels qui est accessible par le rcepteur est presque vide, et au moment de lcriture de ce rapport, il semble y avoir trs peu dinformations spciques lIPBox sur Internet dans des sites indpendants. Mais ceux sont les premiers jours dinitiation, le box vient dentrer sur le march. Dautres rcepteurs utilisent dj le software et les applications dEnigma2 et certains logiciels de ces derniers sont dj disponibles sur lInternet. Probablement quelques uns peuvent tre utiliss ou modis pour une utilisation avec lIPBox. En fait, pour les autres rcepteurs utilisant un systme Linux, Le systme dexploitation complet adapt est disponible avec dautres fonctionnalits supplmentaires. Un exemple que jai trouv lors de la recherche, est une rponse mme une critique de radiodiffusion europenne par satellite, que je faisais pendant de nombreuses annes - Labsence

dun EPG sur sept jours pour la BBC et autres chanes sur ASTRA 2 en dehors des rcepteurs propres Sky et Freesat, en ajoutant simplement cette fonctionnalit. En tant que spectateur de BBC, jaimerai bien que cela soit utilisable sur le IPBox. Cependant, je minquiterais, si jessaye dinstaller quelque chose de semblable qui nest pas spcique ce rcepteur ou la version du systme dexploitation. Peut-tre que nous avons besoin dun chantillon factice pour tirer prot au maximum dun Enigma2 sous IPBox ... peuttre que je devrais apprendre un peu plus, et commencer le rdiger! Le manuel et le site Web de lIPBox, conseillent lutilisateur de chercher des sites web et des forums indpendants dans lesquels on trouve des logiciels et lassistance. Donc esprons que ces sites apparaitront bientt pour ceux qui dsirent exprimenter et amliorer leur rcepteur. Avec une telle puissance disponible, tout ce quil faut, serai une bonne qualit dassistance et de disponibilit de logiciels pour permettre ses utilisateurs de lutiliser pleine capacit. Le IPBox sera un vrai challenger pour les rcepteurs fonctionnant sous Linux qui sont dj sur le march. Il sagit dun

puissant rcepteur avec des menus intelligent qui correspondent son joli look, un ensemble de fonction incomparable et de grande qualit dimage. Les options de conguration sont les plus explicites que vous pourriez imaginer. Le systme ingnieux de favoris avec les trois modes EPG (Le plus utile peut tre cach derrire un menu contextuel spar) permet cette machine de satisfaire les utilisateurs qui aiment la puissance et les spectateurs occasionnels la fois. Apprendre le connatre, exige un passage par le chemin dapprentissage lgrement plus difcile que celui quon trouve sur dautres rcepteurs, mais ca vaut bien la peine. Probablement la conclusion la plus rvlatrice est de savoir si aprs une semaine ou deux de test et de stre habituer toutes ses performances, dois-je me poser la question, ce que je voudrais en possder ? Je peux sincrement dire que je serais ravi den avoir un.

A premire vue, le DTP8300 de Jiuzhou ressemble tout simplement votre dmodulateur habituel de rception satellite, de cble ou terrestre. Il ne mesure que 230x160x39 mm, ce qui en donne un joli petit plus au meuble de la salle de sjour. Le rcepteur est dun noir lgant et exhibe deux LEDs sur le panneau frontal qui indiquent le mode de fonctionnement courant. Le fabricant a choisi de sen passer dun afchage LCD ou segment, mais cependant, a opt pour un interrupteur marche/arrt sur le cot gauche et une interface USB 2.0 au coin droit.

Si vous retournez le rcepteur et examinez les options de connexion sur la partie arrire, il devient parfaitement clair quil sagit dun settop box qui nest pas destin la rception de signaux de satellite, de cble ou dantenne terrestre. Tout ce quon trouve pour le signal dentre, est un port Ethernet RJ45. En outre, il ya bien sr la gamme habituelle des prises de sortie

ncessit de grer, traiter, enregistrer et organiser les canaux. Sa tche principale consiste fournir au TV, un contenu qui est livr sous forme dun pack de donnes prpar. Toute la technologie ncessaire pour la rception et le traitement de canaux, pour la cration de lafchage OSD et la gestion du contenu se trouve au niveau de la sortie du systme IPTV du fournisseur. A ce niveau, le soi-disant middleware (ou tout simplement une sorte de serveur web) prend en charge la mise en forme de la

liste des canaux en utilisant des lments de conception spcique au fournisseur, de fournir un contenu vido la demande (VOD) et de crer linterface complte du rcepteur de lutilisateur IPTV. Lorsquil est mis en marche, le rcepteur IPTV se connecte au middleware via le port Ethernet et afche le contenu quil reoit de ce dernier. En outre, le middleware est galement charg dtablir une connexion la passerelle DVB-IP pour la rception TV. Les fournisseurs enre-

gistrent les adresses IP et les ports de chaque canal au sein du rseau IPTV dans le middleware. Si un utilisateur slectionne actuellement un canal spcique sur la liste de canaux qui est cr et fournie par le middleware, le rcepteur IPTV obtient ladresse IP exacte et le port de la chane slectionne et fournit le ux vido correspondant. Maintenant, la deuxime grande diffrence entre la rception par satellite et lIPTV devient vidente. Dans le cas o vous recevez vos chanes directement par satellite, cela signie que lensemble du contenu est disponible la rception (do le terme de radiodiffusion), tandis que la rception IPTV signie que seul le contenu (canal) qui a t spciquement demand est disponible tout moment. Bien sr, tout le contenu disponible est en attente chez le fournisseur, en attendant dtre demande, mais les donnes ne commencent venir quau moment o lutilisateur appelle un contenu spcique. Chaque client est servi individuellement, pour ainsi dire, cest pourquoi galement Mis part la radio et chanes standards de tlvision - la vido la demande, le time shift (dcalage de temps), ou PVR peuvent tre offert par le fournisseur sans que le client nait acheter de nouveau quipement. Concrtement parlant, la rception de radiodiffusion, par satellite, cble ou par transmission terrestre est comme une onde gigantesque de contenu stendant tous les rcepteurs simultanment, tandis quun rseau IPTV cible chaque abonn sparment, ne fournissant quun contenu spciquement demand et personnalis. Non seulement chaque client IPTV est servis individuellement, mais chaque rseau IPTV est galement dni par une conguration individuelle, en fonction des exigences du fournisseur. En thorie, un fournisseur IPTV peut choisir librement les adresses IP quil veut utiliser

sur son rseau, ainsi que les diffusions multiples utilises dans la distribution de tlvision et radio et les ports. Cela signie, en revanche que les dmodulateurs des utilisateurs naux doivent tre galement exibles an de sadapter aux rseaux IPTV existants. A cet effet, - et cela seulement - le DTP8300 est quip dun menu de conguration ddi qui peut tre actionn laide dun petit bouton sur la tlcommande. Par dfaut, il est protg par code PIN et nous suggrons que les utilisateurs naux, en gnral, ne touchent pas lensemble de ces paramtres. Le menu est divis en six items, avec les paramtres de conguration de base et ceux tendus prsentant le plus dintrt. Dans les paramtres de base, vous devez indiquer au dmodulateur la faon dont il doit se connecter au rseau de votre fournisseur IPTV. Le rcepteur peut soit demander une adresse IP du serveur DHCP sinon vous pouvez attribuer une adresse IP statique votre box. Si vous vous abonnez un fournisseur IPTV qui utilise le DSL pour la distribution de leur contenu, vous pouvez galement congurer une connexion au rseau IPTV via PPPoE. Une fois les paramtres additionnels de rseau tels que la passerelle et le serveur DNS sont rgls ou bien reus partir du serveur DHCP, le rcepteur IPTV doit galement connatre ladresse exacte du middleware. Pour les besoins de notre test, nous avons choisi dutiliser le middleware par dfaut fourni par Jiuzhou, que nous avions install dans notre centre de test sur un PC standard sous Windows en utilisant Microsoft IIS. Lors de la conguration du set-top box pour la connexion au rseau, une surprise, inattendue mais trs agrable est apparue concernant non seulement une connexion via Ethernet tait disponible, mais aussi par le WLAN. Si vous prfrez

Additionnellement aux options de conguration du menu, il existe un tableau rcapitulatif du systme, une fonction dauto-test et une option pour restaurer les paramtres dusine. passer au sans l, tout ce quil vous faut est un RT73 compatible avec un adaptateur USB WLAN brancher sur lun des ports USB - une fois quil est dtect par le systme, il peut facilement tre congur directement dans le box. Maintenant que tous les rglages sont termins, le rcepteur IPTV enregistre toutes les donnes et redmarre en vue dtablir un lien direct au middleware. Bien que lutilisateur moyen devrait tre x maintenant, nous ne pouvions, bien sur, terminer sans avoir jeter un regard sur les paramtres tendus an de les adapter notre conguration de test. Actuellement, les langues du menu disponibles sont lAnglais et Chinois, mais cela ne concerne que le menu principal et quelques items OSD du rcepteur. Lors de lutilisation quotidienne, le middleware du fournisseur IPTV gnre tous les lments de lOSD de toute faon et peut tre dvelopp selon les spcications du fournisseur. Dans les paramtres vido, les utilisateurs peuvent slectionner le format de sortie du signal vers le tlviseur, avec 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p et 1080i qui sont disponibles en format 4:3 et 16:9, ainsi que PAL, NTSC ou SECAM. Enn, les paramtres tendus du menu peuvent tre utiliss pour modier le code PIN qui restreint laccs aux paramtres de rglage et activer un protocole de journal qui est envoy un serveur FTP. De cette faon, les fournisseurs peuvent vrier en permanence si des messages derreur ont t crs par le rcepteur IPTV ou des problmes sont survenus. Grace ces donnes qui sont disponibles au fournisseur, il est possible doffrir, en cas de En utilisant un navigateur Web ou une cl USB, il est galement possible de mettre niveau le systme dexploitation du rcepteur - un lment ddi du menu est disponible pour faciliter cette procdure. Une fois que tous les paramtres ont t rgls, le dmodulateur doit tre redmarr an quil se connecte au middleware sur le rseau et afche le menu principal gnr par ce middleware du fournisseur. Utilisant son propre middleware, Jiuzhou dmontre dune manire impressionnante que des caractristiques propres un fournisseur IPTV peuvent tre introduites avec son middleware interne et en combinaison avec le DTP8300. Comme vous pouvez le constater dans les captures dcran, le menu principal est divis en quatre grandes parties : La barre du haut correspond aux touches colores de fonction de la tlcommande et sont donc parfaitement adaptes pour un accs direct la tlvision en live, la vido sur demande ou la visualisation en time shift (dcalage de temps). La zone de gauche, indique des fonctionnalits qui sont utilises un peu moins frquemment, tels que des jeux ou contenu VOD supplmentaires. Dans la fentre de droite de cette zone, limage vido du canal slectionn est insre, tandis que dans la partie infrieure de lcran, il ya un espace pour des bannires publicitaires pour des contenus VOD nouveaux ou dautres informations propres au fournisseur pour les abonns. Dans notre scnario de test, nous avons fait appel au middleware propre de Jiuzhou avec la passerelle DVB-IP que nous avons install dans notre laboratoire de test, puis avons introduit les adresses correspondantes de diffusion

multiple comme exig. Cela nous a permis davoir lun de nos canaux dalimentation - le transpondeur MBC de NILESAT de 7 Ouest - disponible sur le box IPTV en un rien de temps. Nous avons t assez impressionns par la vitesse de zapping de ce beau petit box, qui prend un peu moins dune seconde pour basculer entre les diffrents ux des chanes de tlvision demands. Chaque fois quune nouvelle chaine est demande, le DTP 8300 afche linformation EPG de lvnement slectionn, si cette fonctionnalit est fournie par le middleware. Comment sont utilises certaines touches supplmentaires de la tlcommande et quelles fonctionnalits donnent-ils accs, cela dpend en grande partie du middleware du fournisseur encore. Si le time shift (dcalage dans le temps) est disponible, alors il peut tre utilis simplement comme tout autre rcepteur et il nest pas ncessaire daller un nouveau concept dutilisation pour cela. Les fonctionnalits compatibles IPTV supplmentaires telles que les informations, mises jour mto ou les prsentes offres pour les abonns peuvent tre assigns diffrentes touches de fonction sur la tlcommande. Il existe mme une option pour basculer entre pav numrique et caractres an que vous puissiez utiliser le pav numrique pour crire du texte - comme vous le feriez avec votre tlphone mobile. En ce qui concerne la compatibilit technologique, le DTP8300 Jiuzhou supporte MPEG-4/H264 ainsi que Windows Media 9 vido. Le navi-

gateur intgr gre le HTML 4.0, Javascript 1.5 et Java Virtual Machine. Les donnes fournies par le middleware sont afches avec une interface utilisateur de couleur 32 bits vraies. Le dcodeur audio est capable de traiter WMA-9, MPEG Layer 1, 2 et 3 (MP3), AAC LC, AAC LC+ SBR niveau 2 ainsi que les formats AAC+ de niveau 2. Les taux dchantillonnage de 22500, 44100 et 48000Hz sont pris en charge et le rcepteur est dot dune mmoire ash de 128 Mo, 192 Mo de SDRAM et une EEPROM 8K. En un mot, nous avons t impressionns par le Jiuzhou DTP8300 lors de notre test. Dans le march de lIPTV, gnralement ce nest pas lutilisateur nal de choisir un set-top box , et cest pour cela que le DTP8300 sera principalement choisi par les fournisseurs IPTV. Ils trouveront un dmodulateur qui est en mesure dintgrer toutes les options recherches du middleware ce qui est donc un quipement parfait pour offrir des programmes aux abonns. Mme les utilisateurs naux qui dsirent rester indpendant dun matriel propres tels fournisseurs, saurons aimer le jiuzhou DTP8300 car il offre toutes les fonctions ncessaires, est facile utiliser, et ne prend pas beaucoup despace sur le meuble de la salle de sjour.

HDTV Receiver with HD+ Standard

The German Receiver with a Plus

Jaeger HD+ 2011 Exc ellent Family Frie ndly HDT V Rec eiver Optimized for the HD+ Transmission Standard in Ger many

12-01/201 1

To regular readers of TELE-satellite the company Doebis from Mndersbach in Germany might ring a bell. It is a wholesale dealer offering an extensive product range combined with excellent customer service, and it is a business that readily endorses cutting-edge technology for the benet its customers. Now Doebis has taken another leap and is launching its own line of receivers, with the rst offspring jumping right in the middle of a market niche that has recently appeared in the German market. There, commercial networks have teamed up to use the new HD+ standard which allows reception of the HD versions of these commercial stations next to all other free-to-air DVB-S and DVB-S2 channels. Doebis distributes the new set-top box under the trade name Jaeger.

38 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

Channels using the HD+ standard are currently only of interest to a Germanspeaking audience, as HD+ smartcards to unlock these channels are only available in Germany at this stage. The Jaeger HD+ 2010 therefore exclusively has the German market in mind for time being. HD+ channels are broadcast via ASTRA 19.2 East. We will deal with every nook and cranny of the new receiver in a moment, but let us rst nd out what this talk about HD+ really is all about: In a global perspective, Germany had long been a dark spot on the HDTV map. While most of Asia, North America, Australia and also a number

of European countries had introduced high-denition television some time ago, Germany seemed to be perfectly content with its SDTV offering for a very long time. Apart from pay TV provider Sky and an unsuccessful attempt at HDTV by some commercial channels not much happened with regard to HD content. Is there a particular reason for this development, or should we rather say: lack of development? For decades, German viewers have been blessed with a large number of free-to-air commercial channels, which offered all sorts of content next to the large public broadcasting networks, which can also be

received free-to-air. Viewers have come to expect and demand high-quality programming, including all the latest blockbuster movies, TV dramas and sitcoms, plus elaborate homemade content free of charge. Or almost free of charge, if you consider the licence fee that every Germany household with a TV set has to pay. Various and sometimes lengthy advertising breaks on commercial stations are the trade-in, which Germans had and have to accept in return for channel and content variety. For all the reasons stated above pay TV was off to a very bad start in Germany and is still struggling to become

nancially viable. Just think about it: Would you be willing to pay for subscription TV if the sheer number of channels coming in at no cost satises almost all of your viewing requirements? Up until the invention of the PVR (personal video recorder), both broadcasters and viewers seemed content with this arrangement, and commercial stations were able to provide decent programming thanks to a steady ow of advertising revenue. All this began to slowly erode due to time-shift viewing and hard-disk recording, with the added benet of skipping commercial breaks. What

pushed the viewing pleasure of millions to new heights was becoming a major concern for commercial broadcasters at least if one follows their line of reasoning. After all, not many would watch ads if these can be skipped with the touch of a button, would they? A few months ago the major public broadcasting networks in Germany nally launched HDTV versions of their main channels and therefore placed the ball in their commercial competitors court to lift their game as well. With their reliance on advertising money, however, commercial providers used a completely different approach which was supposed to restrict ad skipping right from the start. Satellite operator SES readily jumped on board and developed a dedicated transmission concept with the name HD+ platform. The rst step in the new HD+ standard was to offer the new HD channels with encryption only, which is the only way of controlling who can watch what. SES ASTRA selected Nagravision 3 as the encryption system of choice. The next step that followed went even further: HD+ allows content providers to not only dene which encrypted events can be watched and recorded, but also how, when and for how long such content is available. The new HD+ standard provides broadcasters with the option of restricting time-shift viewing for certain content, or to block this feature at large. This means that viewers are still able to record content and watch it at a later stage, but it is not possible to fast forward through commercial breaks. Broadcasters are also in a position to add a use by date to content, so to speak. Such recorded content cannot be played back once that date has passed. To make sure all of these

wishes by broadcasters are actually fullled, PVRs that are compatible with HD+ always record content with encryption in place. This way it is not possible to simply copy les from the internal or external HDD and watch them on a PC or save them onto a DVD, for example. If you do want to receive the HD variants of Germanys major commercial networks you therefore need a receiver that is compatible with HD+ and which features either a built-in smartcard reader or a CI with HD+ functionality plus a valid HD+ smartcard, of course. All receivers and CI modules available so far have not been compatible with the HD+ standard or at least required a software update from the manufacturer to add that feature with all its integrated control mechanisms. Only if all HD+ specications and restrictions are met is it possible to watch HD+ content. We received the Jaeger H+ 2011 receiver complete with an activated HD+ smartcard so that we could easily receive the HD channels of Germanys largest commercial channels. To be precise, we were able to mostly receive upscaled versions of their standard denition offerings, which is what they currently provide. The six networks Sat.1, ProSieben, Vox, Kabel2, RTL and Sport1 can be received in high denition free of charge for one year. After the rst year access can be renewed for another year by paying a fee which currently amounts to EUR 50. But lets come back to our receiver test report now. The black housing of the Jaeger HD+ 2011 is very stylish in appearance and will smoothly blend into most living room settings. The front panel sports a multi-digit segment display, with three buttons to the left for controlling the receivers main functions

without a remote control. To the right of the central display a HD+ smartcard can be inserted into the built-in card reader. There are no additional CI slots available. The back panel of the receiver is very well equipped with all connection options youre ever likely to require. It sports the standard satellite IF input with loopedthrough output, HDMI, optical audio out as well as a USB 2.0 interface. The remote control that comes with the box deserves special praise, as it sits conveniently in your hand and comes with easy to nd buttons. The operating manual is of a similarly high standard, is very comprehensive and comes with helpful illustrations. We are condent the manual will answer all the questions you may have with regard to operating the Jaeger HD+ 2011. We hugely appreciated the fact that a whole chapter of the manual is dedicated to mounting and installing the antenna. This way new users do not only learn how their new receiver works, but also receive some valuable tips and hints for perfectly setting up their antenna. When the receiver is turned on for the rst time it immediately switches to update mode and checks the following: (a) Do signals from ASTRA 19.2 East come in through the satellite IF input socket? (b) Is a software update available? (c) Is the pre-stored channel list still up-to-date for German viewers? In case new software or an updated channel list are available these are downloaded over the air automatically to bring the receiver up to date. This way, viewers in Germany can rest assured their receiver will always keep up with any changes or improvements and that all pre-stored

channels can actually shown on screen.

Channel list editing

We should elaborate a little on this new receivers channel list: Contrary to what we are used to from regular receivers, the HD+ platform of provider SES ASTRA brings viewers the added benet of looking for new channels every time the receiver is turned on. To this end, HD+ has come up with its own channel list setup that looks like this: TV channels 100 to 2,000 and radio channels 100 to 500 are reserved for the automatic ASTRA 19.2 East HD+ channel list for Germany, while channels 1 through 99 can be set according to customer preferences. By default, Doebis ships the Jaeger HD+ 2011 with pre-set channels from 1 to 57 which include all German free-to-air channels as well as obviously all HDTV channels currently available from ASTRA at 19.2 East (see chart). The channel list begins with ARD HD and ZDF HD (the two major nationwide public broadcasting channels in Germany), followed by the six HD+ channels and the remaining German channels. In addition, international channels such as Sky News, CNN and CNBC are also found on the default channel list. If required, the list can be rearranged and edited according to personal preferences, and since channels 1 through 99 are the customers domain they will never be overwritten if an automatic channel update takes place. Its a different story for the pre-set channels beginning with 100. They are arranged in the following fashion and cannot be moved, deleted or otherwise rearranged, as they are part of the HD+ channel list: 100-130: ARD (public broadcaster) and regional public channels.

ORF (OE1, all regional versions of OE2, OE3, FM4) Every time a new German language channel is launched on ASTRA 19.2 East it will be added to the HD+ channel list by provider SES Astra and will be available with the following automatic channel list update. The Jaeger HD+ 2011 will display it accordingly, and since the list is segmented according to provider categories it will t in perfectly. If so desired by a user, any channel in the pre-set list can be copied into the user list from 1 to 99. Talk about a smart solution! Incidentally, the channel list features more than meets the eye at rst sight. Many channels are not specically included in the list, but are still available if you know how to nd them. If you use the search mode to nd all channels starting with Kabel 1, for example, the results will also show Kabel 1 Austria on channel 414, which can then be selected and watched. The same is true for Sat.1 Austria, RTL Austria, and so on. If you think this is somewhat unusual then the answer lies in the HD+ concept: As soon as HD+ will also be offered on the Austrian market the receivers sold there will be pre-programmed to show the Austrian versions of those channels, rather than the Germany versions. The Jaeger HD+ 2011 offers a dedicated menu for channel management, which shows all available entries from 1 to 99 in the right screen section and the complete channel list on the left section. Thanks to this convenient layout channels can easily be added from the overall list to the customised list. In addition, a total of ten favourites lists can be lled to your hearts content and add much to the overall enjoyment this receiver provides. All channel entries above 2,000 (TV) and 500 (radio) 43

can also be customised and are not restricted by the HD+ standard. The box is able to perform all the search functions we expect from a DVB-S/ S2 receiver. It comes with a factory-installed list of all transponders of the 28 most frequently received European satellites. It goes without saying that this list can be edited manually and that new transponders can be added as required. We did, on the other had, somewhat regret that the Jaeger HD+ 2011 only offers tone burst and DiSEqC 1.0 for up to four satellites, and DiSEqC 1.2 for motorised antennas. Unfortunately, the hugely convenient USALS protocol and DiSEqC 1.1 for up to 16 satellites are not available. On a positive note, we appreciated the fact that the LOF can be determined individually for each satellite entry based on a number of pre-set options or with manual setting. This makes the Jaeger box perfectly suitable for C band reception as well. Thanks to manual transponder search it is possible to look for signals on a specied frequency only and to edit the pre-set transponder list. Any new frequencies can be added without much ado and a touch of a button is all it takes to delete any discontinued transponder entries.

In our test the Jaeger HD+ 2011 took more than 25 minutes for a full scan across all HOTBIRD 13 East bands, which is not exactly an Olympic achievement. Then again, most users will only ever use the HD+ channel list which is kept up-to-date and very accurate anyway. Like all other receivers we test the Jaeger box, too, had to prove its worth with regard to very week signals. We used BADR at 26 East for that benchmark test and found that the integrated DVB-S/ S2 tuner did a remarkably good job. The same was true for signals with a very low symbol rate (like the ones from TURKSAT 42 East at our location), which were processed awlessly as well. It only took a moment before the 11,742 V frequency was locked in with a symbol rate of only 2,965 ks/s. All entries of the individual channel list (2,000 and above for TV, 500 and above for radio) can be deleted, moved or marked for skipping as required. Entries on the HD+ list, on the other hand, can only be marked for skipping without any other editing options. Optional PIN protection is available for all channels if you feel some channels are not appropriate for children or minors living in your household. Altogether the channel list consists of 5,000 entries, and even if we reduce that number by the channels that are pre-dened through HD+ that will still leave you with 2,700 entries to ll. In Systems Settings which is the third major menu item next to Channel Search and Channel List Editing users can customise their newly acquired box according to personal preferences. Even though the new Jaeger HD+ 2011 is specically targeted to the German market the OSD languages to choose from are German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Russian, Polish and

If you prefer an automatic search as most will do the Jaeger HD+ 2011 can be set for network search mode or restricted to free-to-air channels only. This is particularly useful as all encrypted channels will nd their way into the automatic HD+ channel list anyway and there are no other decryption options (such as an additional CI slot) available anyway. If so desired, an automatic search can be dened to cover TV, radio, or both.

Dutch. At the same you may also dene your preferred audio track languages in case a channel broadcasts more than one. When you want to tell the receiver which time zone you are in you need not know your local difference to GMT but rather select your zone from a list of well-known European cities. Continuing with audio/video settings, the receiver can be told which signal resolution your TV panel prefers so that you always get the best quality on screen. We should emphasise the fact that the Jaeger HD+ 2011 already supports 1080p, which means it is t for the future of satellite television even today. Obviously 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i as well 480p and 480i can chosen as well. The receiver automatically detects the colour standard of a received channel and adjusts the output signal accordingly. No matter whether you have a 4:3 or 16:9 TV set, the box will deal it with it, and you may dene the way 16:9 broadcasts are displayed on a 4:3 set. Thanks to the integrated scart euroconnector RGB and CVBS are available for analog signal output and a separate menu item lets you add or edit up to 50 timer entries. Once all basic parameters are set pressing the Exit button will bring you to the rst receivable channel on the list. Every time a new channel is selected the Jaeger HD+ 2011 inserts an info bar on the bottom of the screen which includes date, time and information on the current and next event, if this information is provided. There are icons indicating encryption and the availability of subtitles, audio tracks as well as teletext. Press the OK button and the clearly arranged channel list will pop up, with ten channel entries per page. Using the green and yellow function keys you may select individual satellite entries, while the Text button opens up a search mask which you can use nd that particular channel youre looking for. The Favourite button accesses up to ten favourites lists which you can arrange in any fashion you like. The Jaeger HD+ 2011 zapping speed is approximately one second for free-to-air SDTV channels. Switching to HDTV or encrypted channels takes slightly longer. We were truly impressed with the video performance of this receiver,

even though most material on HD+ channels currently is upscaled SD content. Every time native HD is broadcasts your eyes are virtually glued to the screen watching TV has never been more brilliant! If youre interested in nding out more about the event youre watching or even want to check whats on TV later at night or the next day the EPG button will become your best friend. Press it once for extended information about the currently showing event and press it again to see a preview of the selected channel for up to seven days. If you press the EPG button yet again a preview schedule of ve channels at a time appears on screen. In next to no time can you then nd out what your favourite channels will show in primetime, or when the next episode of that crime drama is on. No matter which EPG mode youre in, if you come across an event thats not to miss you can easily create a timer entry by simply pressing the blue button. This is a particularly smart feature considering that an external HDD can be hooked up to the Jaeger HD+ 2011 thanks to the USB 2.0 interface. If you make use of that option youre not only able to record content, but also use the timeshift viewing feature at least for free-to-air channels. So next

time your mother-in-law calls simply press Pause and pick up the phone that way youll both be happy and you can continue watching whenever you feel like. As mentioned before, this feature is not available for channels on the HD+ platform. By and large, all PVR features of the new Jaeger receiver are cleverly implemented and easy to use. The box boasts a single tuner only, which is why it is not possible to watch a channel from a different transponder while a recording takes place. If the recording is made from an encrypted HD+ channel it is not possible to watch a different channel at all, just as is it not possible to make two recordings at the same time. A previously stored event, however, can be played back at any time during recording. The Movie button on the remote control or the corresponding menu item in the on-screen display brings you to the content of the external HDD. Here again, the display sports a clever layout, is more or less self-explanatory and also provides details such as recording date, length and originating channel for each recording. There is even an integrated picture viewer for presenting photos of your journey around the world or any other event in your life. You and your guests

may make use of the formatting feature which can be accessed through a dedicated menu item. You may also have the receiver manually check for new software or channel lists, even though this is done every time you power up the box anyway. The current channel list can be saved onto any external USB storage medium for back-up purposes and to provide a safety net in case you inadvertently delete a channel or make a mess out of your list. If video games is what youre after then prepare yourself for a minor disappointment there are none. You may, however, use the built-in teletext decoder to read the news during commercial breaks, for example, which is much more worthwhile anyway. The teletext display only covers about half the screen so you can always keep an eye on the current channel in order not to miss a thing. Finally, there was another nice surprise waiting for us: Power consumption of the Jaeger HD+ 2011 in standby is extremely low. The manufacturer species 1 W, and our own measurement yielded an even lower 0.8 W! We like

that because in whats good for the environment is just as good for your wallet. In conclusion we can say that the Jaeger HD+ 2011 fullled all our expectations. Were talking about a HDTV satellite receiver the whole family will like, that will t into any lounge room surroundings, and that offers all the features an average family will ever want. With its 1080p HDMI output it is well ahead of many competitors and ready for the future of high-denition satellite television. The box is characterised by smart user-interaction and will be understood by the technically challenged as well. HD+ compatibility allows reception of the HDTV variants of Germanys major commercial networks and the built-in PVR functions work awlessly. It has to be said, however, that users might require some time before they will get used to all HD+ restrictions. In our test, for example, we were not able to skip commercial breaks on HD+ channels but then again, that is precisely why HD+ was developed in the rst place. Nonetheless, the overall impression of the Jaeger HD+2011 is unreservedly positive.

Les cartes DVB-S/S2 deviennent de plus en plus populaires, mais paralllement, les gens restent attachs la fonction PVR sur de nombreux rcepteurs satellites classiques galement. Aprs tout, rien ne vaut la possibilit denregistrer un vnement tout en regardant un autre au mme instant. Y a-t-il un moyen de raliser cet avantage avec une carte PC? Si vous avez un rcepteur PVR et vous tes en mesure denregistrer une chane tout en regardant une autre simultanment, il vous faut donc un dmodulateur avec deux tuners et deux entres IF. Quand il sagit de cartes PC, cela est trs rare et cest pourquoi Tenow comble avec ert cette lacune avec son nouveau TBS 6981.

LInstallation de la carte ne ncessite pas une connaissance dun ingnieur et grce sa taille compacte, elle saura saccommoder dans les appareils mme avec peu despace. Ds que les deux entres tuner sont relies aux cbles dentre de signal; tout ce qui reste faire cest de connecter le rcepteur IR la prise ct des entres FI pour commencer. La tlcommande fournie avec la carte saccommode trs bien dans la main et permet de contrler le TBS 6981 sans que vous ne leviez de votre canap du salon. Le manuel est disponible sur le mini CD en format PDF. Tenow liste les spcications suivantes pour la rception DVB-S: Intel Pentium III 1 GHz avec 256 Mo de RAM et une carte graphique avec 16 Mo de RAM. Si vous recherchez des signaux DVBS2, vous devez vous assurer davoir au moins un processeur Intel Pentium IV 3 GHz avec 1 Go de RAM et une carte graphique avec de 64 Mo de RAM minimum. Tenow permet une compatibilit de la carte avec Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 et mme les systmes dexploitation Linux - Celui-ci, mme avec le rcent Kernel de Linux. Maintenant que nous avons install la carte dans notre PC de test et connect tous les cbles ncessaires, nous avons continu avec linstallation du pilote. Peu de temps aprs que le CD fut insr, une fentre de dmarrage automatique souvre sur lcran avec toutes les options disponibles. Un simple clic de souris, cest tout ce quil faut pour dmarrer linstallation du driver et quelques temps aprs, Windows afche un message indiquant quun nouveau matriel a t dtect et, est prt lemploi. Pour tous les enthousiastes de Linux: Tenow fourni mme des drivers sous Linux et rend la carte entirement compatible avec le dernier kernel Linux. Sur le plan logiciel Tenow fournit sa propre application de prsentation pour le TBS viewer, mais propose galement le software DVB Dream sur le CD comme une option. Nous ne devrions pas manquer de mentionner qu ce stade, la carte a fonctionn parfaitement avec lapplication ProgDVB, galement trs populaire et le fabricant fournit tous les chiers de conguration ncessaires sur le CD inclus. Windows Media Center (Comme celui fourni avec Windows 7, par exemple) est aussi support.Ca revient principalement lutilisateur nal de choisir le logiciel qui soit associ la carte Tenow, et cest lun des principaux avantages des russites de la cartes PC, par opposition au set-top boxes, qui - dans la plus part des cas - ne peuvent tre utiliss quavec un rmware unique fourni par le fabricant. Aux ns du prsent rapport de test, cependant, nous avons dcid de sen tenir aux logiciels fournis par Tenow.

Dans notre cas, le TBS Viewer est fourni avec une liste de canaux prenregistre dASTRA 19,2 Est, Hotbird 13 Est, ASTRA3 23,5 Est et ASTRA2 28,2 Est, ce qui signiait que nous tions prts pour les divertissements tout de suite. LOSD peut tre afch dans les langues suivantes: Anglais, Allemand, Franais, Tchque, Hongrois, Italien, Polonais, Portugais, Russe, Finnois et Ukrainien. Une liste de 176 positions satellitaires europennes, asiatiques et amricaines complte avec les donnes par transpondeur, est disponible, bien que ces donnes ne soient pas compltement mises jour. Tous les paramtres LOF peuvent tre rgls manuellement, de sorte que la carte PC fonctionne avec tous les ttes (LNB) disponibles. Si votre systme de rception comporte un commutateur DiSEqC 1.0 pour la rception de quatre satellites, vous serez ravis dapprendre que la carte Tenow sadapte trs facilement cette conguration. tonnamment, la Tenow TBS 6981 fonctionne mme parfaitement avec loption SCR dun seul cble, cette dernire est prise en charge. Le signal 22 kHz pour commuter entre la bande de frquences suprieure et infrieure et la tension dalimentation de la tte (LNB) (13V pour les signaux verticales/circulaire gauches et 18V pour les signaux horizontale/circulaire droite) fonctionnent comme prvu et exig. Tenow offre trois modes de recherche: Le balayage automatique, recherche tous les transpondeurs sur la liste prenregistre, la recherche manuelle peut tre utilise pour scanner un seul transpondeur qui sera ensuite verrouille. Nous tions impressionns par la vitesse de balayage de la TBS 6981, qui na pris que trois minutes et demie pour trouver 1.734 chanes de tlvision et de radio sur HOTBIRD 13 Est. Chaque recherche peut tre limite aux chanes gratuites uniquement, ce qui est particulirement utile puisque la carte PC nest pas livre avec un slot CI pour la rception de la tlvision payante. On peut se demander maintenant ce quest le troisime mode de recherche, puisque nous avons mentionn seulement lautomatique et le manuel jusqu maintenant. Cest en quelques sortes un mode de balayage aveugle et ncessite une frquence de dbut et de n, plus le paramtre du pas de balayage dsir ainsi que tous les taux de symbole qui doivent tre utiliss. Pour notre test, nous avons essay cette nouveaut pour la plage entire des frquences de satellites HOTBIRD 13 Est avec des pas de 5 MHz et pour des dbits de symboles de 27,5 et 22 Ms / s. Il sest avr que ce mode de recherche a dtect rellement tous les transpondeurs actifs dans la plage de frquence pr-dnie, mais il a sembl aussi tre une opration sans

Nous devons galement faire un loge spcial la nouveaut de la mise jour du logiciel qui maintient la liste des canaux rcents et ajoute les nouveaux canaux retrouvs sans gcher la liste existante. Vous pouvez mme crer une partie spciale qui enregistre tous les nouveaux canaux en fonction de la date laquelle ils ont t dtects. Cela aide normment quand on recherche un canal qui a t ajout rcemment votre liste globale.

Vous navez pas aller dans un autre menu ddi pour commuter entre les pistes audio mais vous avez lensemble des dtails juste devant vos yeux.

Ldition et le tri des chaines peuvent galement tre effectus directement dans la fentre de slection, ce qui signie que toutes les options sont disponibles quand et o vous en avez besoin. Vous pouvez ltrer les chanes selon certaines caractristiques (Audio AC3, par exemple) ou en fonction de fournisseur, satellite ou par catgorie. Si vous dsirez ajouter plus de prcision votre liste globale de canaux, vous pouvez masquer toutes les chanes cryptes avec un seul clic de souris. A chaque fois, que lon bascule vers une nouvelle chaine, le software insre automatiquement un OSD judicieusement conu dinformations sur lvnement en cours et celui qui suit, si elles sont fournis avec la chane.

Ce qui diffrencie le TBS 6981 de la plupart des concurrents de carte PC, cest son deuxime tuner, et une fois que vous connaissez tous ses avantages, vous ne pouvez plus sen passer. Il permet denregistrer une chane tout en regardant une autre chane en direct. Il est mme possible deffectuer une recherche sur le tuner 2 pendant que vous regardez la tlvision en direct sur le tuner 1. Avec lintgration

de loption picture-in-picture, il est facile de regarder une deuxime chaine dans une petite fentre pendant une pause publicitaire de votre chane principale, par exemple. Aucun souci de perdre une seconde de plus de votre mission prfre, et plus question de rouler les pouces en attendant la n de la pause. Le tltexte est galement disponible et il est intgr parfaitement avec toutes les fonctionnalits tant attendues. Pourtant, toutes ces fonctionnalits intressantes et utiles seraient totalement sans intrt sans des tuners capables avant tout qui sont le noyau de nimporte quel rcepteur ou carte PC. Pas besoin de sinquiter au sujet de la TBS 6981, donc, dont les tuners captent sans difcult tous les signaux DVB-S et DVB-S2 qui leur sont destins. Les signaux faibles proches du seuil de tuner - Comme ceux de BADR 26 Est de notre emplacement - nont pos aucun problme ni de xation dimage, mme lorsque la correction derreur intgre Viterbi a fonctionn hors gamme pendant une priode prolonge de temps. Le test SCPC a t russi avec brio galement et les tuners ont russi verrouiller entirement et traiter les signaux de notre transpondeur de test sur TURKSAT 42 Est avec un dbit de symboles de seulement 2,2 Ms / s. Dans notre centre de test, nous avons volontairement utilis un processeur Pentium IV quelque peu ancien pour ce rapport. Aprs tout, pas tous nos lecteurs ne seront quips avec le plus rcent ordinateur. Mme si notre machine fonctionnait aux limites infrieures des spcications du fabricant, nous tions encore en mesure de regarder la TVHD partir dun signal DVB-S2, et en mme temps, effectuer des tches de bureau sur le PC. En toute vidence, le processeur et la carte graphique, la fois, devaient fournir une bonne performance, mais avaient encore une capacit supplmentaire pour excuter raisonnablement dautres taches. Toutes les vidos safchaient toujours sans interfrence, peu importe si elles taient HD ou SD. Si vous prfrez utiliser la tlcommande fournie avec le kit pour le contrle du software plutt qu partir de votre clavier et souris, vous serez ravi dapprendre que cela fonctionne parfaitement avec la carte PC. Quoi de plus, lorsque nous avons branch un tlviseur cran plat de 40 pouces au PC via DVI, le mode dafchage du TBSViewer a donn une excellente qualit vido identiquement une dmodulateur conventionnel. En cas de besoin, le TBSViewer dispose dune gamme complexe doptions de conguration dtailles. Pour ne donner quun exemple, diffrents codecs peuvent tre slectionns pour la lecture vido, selon le format de chier. Cela permet de sassurer que le

52 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

TBSViewer est capable de grer diffrents formats de vido tels que MPEG-2, H.264, DivX ou XviD, entre autres. Il est mme possible de manipuler les feeds qui sont retransmis en format studio MPEG 4:2:2 Aprs avoir tlcharg le codec Elecard qui est disponible gratuitement sur www.elecard.com. Cette fonctionnalit fera probablement de la carte Tenow , le premier article recherch de la liste pour tout radio amateur et chasseur de feeds. Dans les sections de conguration, on peut , bien sur, personnaliser toutes les fonctions initiales de la carte pour rpondre aux exigences personnelles , tel programmer le dlai et retard des enregistrements faire, diviser les enregistrements en chiers de taille identique, et dnir lun des deux tuners come standard. tuner. Lorsque vous utilisez le TBSViewer vous saurez quil est capable de traiter toute une gamme de formats diffrents, y compris MPEG, DivX, Video CD, AFS, WMV, WMA, OGG et OGM. Cela vous permet de regarder pratiquement tous les contenus vido, et pas seulement les ux porteurs de satellites. Une barre de temps qui est situe sur la partie infrieure de lcran vido permet de sauter nimporte quelle squence pendant la lecture dun vnement enregistr, ou bien indique ltat davancement dun vnement en direct. Tous les enregistrements satellite sont enregistrs dans le format de ux de transport universellement et gnralement utilis an quils puissent facilement tre modi et enregistr sur DVD, par exemple. En dehors de leur propre logiciel de prsentation, Tenow fournit galement le software DVB Dream sur CD, qui est similaire dans les fonctionnalits au TBSViewer. En outre, le CD renferme les chiers de conguration de lapplication populaire ProgDVB, permettant ainsi la carte PC TBS 6981 davoir un vis--vis parfait pour ce software.

Nous nous sommes vraiment rjoui que la nouvelle carte du TBS travaille sur Windows Media Center galement, une srie de logiciels qui est fournie avec Windows 7, par exemple. Les utilisateurs prfrant ce logiciel qui est bien conu et entirement intgr sont libres de lutiliser, puisque notre test a prouv que cette combinaison est absolument sans problme. Voil comment le plug & play doit fonctionner! En n de compte, cest lutilisateur de choisir son logiciel prfr. Le point important cest que le fabricant nous prsente les diffrentes options, qui sont toujours les bienvenues. Il ya un atout supplmentaire de la carte double tuner TBS 6981 qui ne devrait pas passer inaperu: Un tuner peut tre rgl sparment Internet par satellite, tandis que le second tuner prend en charge la tlvision et radio par satellite. Les lecteurs utilisant Internet par satellite auront une ide du cassette permanent subi pour dcider entre Internet et la tlvision, mais enn la TBS 6981 rend cette tache rvolue. Le fabricant fournit un logiciel spcique pour laccs Internet qui agit comme adaptateur de rseau virtuelle sous Windows et accde la toile mondiale par satellite une fois tous les paramtres ncessaires (Frquence, polarisation, dbit symbole, les infos du compte, etc) sont saisis correctement. Naturellement, nous avons essay cela galement et pouvons afrmer que nous navons rien trouv redire. Mme lors de lenregistrement en arrire-plan, le systme fonctionnait totalement sans problme, tout comme il tait possible de regarder une chane TVHD et en surfant sur Internet par satellite au mme instant.

te. Une telle assiette devrait tre beaucoup plus puissante www.skyworthdigital.com que celle ddie uniquement pour la rception. Cest parce que le module tte (LNB)/ BUC est norme et lourd. Le Standard 1 m dish 73.6 dBV 13.3 dB 12.4 dB 5.2 dB 9 x 10-5

BUC consomme une puissance lectrique denviron 30 W et doit tre quip dun grand et lourd dissipateur de chaleur. De plus, la parabole doit avoir une gomtrie prcise et garantir une stabilit dalignement, sinon, elle sera capable de retransmettre des signaux interfrant aux satellites voisins. On devine pourquoi ces assiettes sont plus grandes et plus solides que celles qui sont familires nos amateurs de satellites. Ces antennes paraboliques sont souvent appeles antennes VSAT. VSAT signie (very small aperture terminal) terminal trs petite ouverture et signie station satellite terrestre bidirectionnelle.

nest apparu. En raison de la taille et le poids du matriel, lon a besoin dun coup de main dans certaines oprations - par exemple lors du montage du rflecteur sur le mat. Parlant du mat, il a une base trs pratique avec trois pieds. Mme si la surface nest pas toute fait plate et horizontale, Lon est en mesure de rgler toutes les tiges de faon indpendante et veiller ce que le mat soit parfaitement daplomb. Nous avons aim la mcanisme de rglage de lazimut. Cest vraiment extraordinaire par rapport lassiette habituelle de rception. Vous posez lantenne peu prs dans la bonne direction, puis vous tournez le levier ce qui fait bouger lassiette vers lEst ou lOuest. De cette faon, vous pouvez rgler lazimut avec une prcision absolue. Le rglage de llvation est plus classique - une longue et paisse tige filete avec deux crous de fixation. Nous pouvons vous assurer que ce pointage est galement trs prcis et vous pouvez rgler sur la pointe des pieds, ll-

vation ainsi que lazimut. Le support de LNB/BUC avec le feedhorn (source) et les guides dondes sont compatibles avec les lments standards de rception et de retransmission. Cela fournit une sparation entre les polarisations - dans notre cas, la polarisation verticale a t utilise pour la rception et lhorizontale pour retransmettre le signal. Il vous permet galement de rgler linclinaison de lensemble BUC/TETE (LNB). Nous avions besoin de rgler 10 dinclinaison et cela ctait fait sans problme. Aprs linstallation de BUC et LNB, nous avons orient lantenne peu prs dans la direction du satellite EUROBIRD 3 sur 33E, qui tait le satellite utilis pour les prestations fournies par notre fournisseur daccs Internet. Aprs avoir raccord un analyseur de signaux satellite la sortie de la tte (LNB), nous avons aussitt observ un signal sur lafficheur de spectre. Nous avons excut la fonction didentification de satellite et, notre grande

surprise, cela a t EUROBIRD 3. Ensuite, nous avons examin les paramtres du transpondeur et il se trouvait que laffichage du spectre a t centr exactement sur le transpondeur droit. Incroyable ! La seule chose qui restait, tait de procder un rglage fin de lazimut, llvation et Tilt (rotation de la tte). Lorsque tout se passe beaucoup mieux que prvu, mieux vaut tre prudent. La loi de Murphy est prte vous assommer encore plus durement. Et, bien sur, notre modem DOCSIS na pas pu se verrouiller au service. Les LED indicatrices de rception clignotaient, et nous navons pas pu nous connecter Internet. Aprs avoir procder une double vrification, nous avons contact loprateur. Aprs un certain temps ils nous ont rappel et nous ont signal quils ne pouvaient pas verrouiller sur le signal galement. Ils ont dit que quelque chose nallait pas avec la liaison montante de toute vidence et quils devaient examiner de prs le problme ltran-

ger. Presque une demi-heure plus tard, ils ont appel de nouveau en disant que leur modem tait verrouill. Une rapide vrification a montr que notre modem se verrouillait galement. Finalement, nous avons eu accs lInternet via satellite.

Performance
Nous avons vrifi la vitesse des tlchargements (rception et envoi) et nous avons obtenu: 2849 kb / s et 160 kb / s. Les chiffres correspondaient avec les spcifications de connexion que nous avions eu de notre fournisseur. Un lger retard avant le dbut du tlchargement a t observ, mais cela est normal dans la communication par satellite. Aprs tout, le satellite est 36000 km l-haut et quelques enregistrements de donnes au pralable doivent galement avoir lieu lorsque des formes de correction derreurs sont utilises. Mais comment valuer la qualit de la connexion? Nous avons dcid de 57

dans le Bit Error Rate du canal. Il tait presque deux fois mieux que la rfrence. Pour les lecteurs qui ne sont pas familiers avec le terme: plus bas est le CBER, le moins de bits errones qui ont besoin dtre corriges par le modem. Egalement, la marge de liaison a augment de 5,2 dB 5,6 dB et vous devez savoir que 5 dB est dj considre comme trs bon. Nous pouvons tre srs quavec les antennes paraboliques SVEC, notre connexion Internet sera presque totalement insensible aux conditions mtorologiques. Nous navions aucune possibilit de mesurer le signal mis, mais la performance du modle SVEC doit tre meilleure que

comparer le signal dentre avec lantenne de rception 1,2 m de SVEC et celui reu avec une antenne de rception habituelle dun mtre quon vous fournit lorsque vous vous abonnez ce ser-

vice, notre emplacement en Pologne. Comme vous pouvez le constater dans le tableau, lassiette SVEC a donn un signal plus fort avec une meilleure qualit. Il est particulirement visible

la rfrence pour les mmes proportions. Cest concret. Nous pouvons le dire parce que lensemble tte(LNB) et BUC utilise le mme guide dondes situ la mme position par rapport au recteur. Notre test a montr que lantenne parabolique 1,2 m de SVEC est trs bonne (si ce nest pas trop bonne) pour laccs occasionnel lInternet en Pologne. Dans les autres rgions du monde o le signal nest pas trs fort, lutilisation de lassiette 1,2 m au lieu de la 1 m peut faire la diffrence. Nos mesures ont prouv que le gain de lantenne est grand. Cela signie que la gomtrie ne laisse rien dire. Lassiette 1,2 m de SVEC est un choix idal pour son utilisation avec VSAT.

Module hybride

bre-coaxial pour les systmes de distribution

La seule manire de maintenir le ratio C/N trs lev sera dutiliser des commutateurs et des lignes de transmission faible perte de charge. Mais la meilleure solution qui est disponible aujourdhui reste lutilisation de cbles bres optiques. Ils peuvent avoir une attnuation aussi basse que 0,2 dB par kilomtre et des taux derreur extrmement faibles (10-10), mme au plus haut taux de bits. Bien sr, tout le monde sait que ce nest pas du courant lectrique, mais un faisceau lumineux qui se dplace le long du cble de bre optique. Donc, nous avons besoin de convertir le signal lectrique en un faisceau de lumire laser module. Cela peut se faire soit directement dans la tte(LNB) - Voir de tels autres tests ailleurs dans TELE-satellite - ou bien avec laide dun convertisseur externe. Dans ce dernier cas, nous utilisons simplement une tte quattro rgulire ou Quad , puis de convertir ses quatre sorties en lumire. SPAUN, le fabricant Allemand bien connu, nous a envoy son dernier produit conu cet effet le SOTx131607 NF. Il lappelle metteur optique. lautre extrmit de la bre optique, nous devons faire lopration inverse - soit une dmodulation inverse pour obtenir un signal lectrique. SPAUN appelle lunit effectuant cette fonction, un rcepteur optique et lui assigne le numro de modle: SOTx131607 NF. Trs bien, mais es ce que des modulations et dmodulations supplmentaires ne gchent elles pas le C/N du signal? Ce serait la perte de tous les avantages introduis par des cbles de bres optiques. Ceux sont

exactement les modules de distribution pour les systmes hybride bre-coaxial que nous avons voulu savoir avec nos mesures. Mais avant le test proprement dit, nous avons examin de prs les modules. Comme toujours, tous les produits SPAUN, prsentent une fabrication parfaite.

Aussi, les tiquettes crites en allemand et en anglais, apposes sur la face suprieure ne laissent aucun doute sur qui doit tre connect sur o. Le SOTx1310607 NF a une entre RF laquelle on peut relier soit le signal IF satellite seul ou lIF satellite et le signal terrestre de plus, en supposant que nous les

avons combins avant (par exemple laide dun diviseur de frquence). Ceci est possible car lentre est conue pour la gamme de frquences allant de 47 2200 MHz, ce qui couvre la fois la plage de frquence terrestre et satellite. Il y a une fonctionnalit intressante qui est le rglage indpendant des niveaux de

graph 1

62 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

signal satellite et le niveau du signal dentre terrestre. SPAUN a intgr dans son module deux attnuateurs 0-12 dB. Un metteur optique ne peut pas avoir une alimentation via un cble bres optiques. Il est ncessaire de lui connecter une alimentation externe de19 V DC. SPAUN en ajoute une qui convient tous

les SOTx1310607 NF. La tension lectrique est ncessaire non seulement pour lunit, mais aussi pour alimenter la tte (LNB) qui lui est connecte. A laide dun switch plac sur le couvercle du transmetteur, nous choisissons la bonne tension et actionnons le signal 22 kHz. Grace celai, on peut utiliser soit

une tte(LNB) Quattro (Donc, nous mettons simplement 12 V dans les quatre voies du signal) ou une tte(LNB) Quad (De ce fait, nous devons rgler chaque voie sparment: 12V, 18V, 12V/22kHz, 18V/22kHz). Si nous avions une source de signal qui ne ncessite pas dalimentation DC, on peut lteindre com-

graph 2

pltement. Le SOTx1310607 NF possde deux connecteurs de type F en parallle pour lalimentation. Grace cela, nous pouvons brancher un module dalimentation au premier metteur et brancher le deuxime metteur avec un morceau de cble coaxial. De cette faon, nous navons pas besoin de module dalimentation pour chaque metteur. Le module dalimentation de SPAUN vendu avec le kit est assez puissant pour alimenter jusqu quatre metteurs en supposant que lalimentation de la tte (LNB) nest pas ncessaire. Et si nous devons alimenter la tte(LNB), qui est gnralement le cas, le nombre sera rduit trois metteurs. Nanmoins, il sagit dune simplication de linstallation globale. Lmetteur optique a galement un indicateur LED qui, outre signale la connexion de lalimentation, peut aussi nous renseigner sur un court-circuit dans lentre de la tte (LNB). Il commence simplement clignoter. Cest trs intuitif. Une autre sortie lectrique est le signal de test mentionn jusqu -20 dB. Cest tout simplement lentre attnue de 20 dB, et qui est lentre du modulateur de lumire. Nous pouvons lutiliser pour vrier la prsence relle du signal RF lentre de lmetteur et voir son niveau. La sortie optique SC/APC est protge avec un capuchon noir qui doit tre enlev avant de connecter une bre optique. En fait, le branchement des entres et sorties optiques est idal pour un installateur satellite. Appuyez doucement jusqu ce que vous sentiez un dclic et cest branch. Une diffrence convenable par rapport aux connecteurs F ! Pour envoyer en bas les quatre signaux dune tte (LNB) quattro, il est ncessaire dutiliser quatre metteurs SOTx1310607 NF. Heureusement, quil tait possible de miniaturiser le rcepteur beaucoup plus que lmetteur. Le SORx1310607 NF est un rcepteur quad: il dispose de quatre entres optiques et quatre sorties lectriques RF. Contrairement lmetteur, le rcepteur est livr sans alimentation, 63

car il est suppos obtenir son alimentation partir de lunit centrale de distribution ou multiswitch, comme nimporte quelle tte (LNB) rgulire. Une prise coaxiale appele C au niveau du rcepteur optique sert la connexion dalimentation; Ici, lutilisateur devra connecter le cble coaxial partir dune unit centrale ou dun commutateur. Dans notre cas, nous lavons fait diffremment: puisque le rcepteur optique ncessite exactement la mme tension DC que lmetteur, nous avons pris un module dalimentation du kit metteur. Les units sont trs interchangeable: non seulement, elles offrent une large plage de tensions (100 ... 240 V AC / 47 ... 63 Hz) mais SPAUN offre galement un certain nombre dadaptateurs broches changeables de sorte que vous pouvez lutiliser partout dans le monde. Lalimentation en courant continu peut tre connecte lun des deux connecteurs F. De mme que dans lmetteur, ils sont connects en parallle. Donc, si lalimentation en courant continu est exige pour un dispositif similaire dans le voisinage, nous utiliserons un cble coaxial plutt quun autre module dalimentation. Un indicateur LED indique si lappareil est aliment. Lmetteur et le rcepteur peuvent tre accrochs sur le mur avec seulement 2 vis. Ils ne devraient pas tre exposs lair libre, mais plutt utilis lintrieur. Toutefois, leur temprature de fonctionnement est assez large: -20 C 50 C. La brochure jointe chaque unit est imprime en anglais et en allemand et fournit toutes les informations ncessaires ainsi que des exemples de circuits dapplication.

Mesures
Aprs avoir t familiaris avec les units, le moment tait venu de mettre tous les blocs ensemble et de voir quel type de performance prsentent-ils. SPAUN recommande dalimenter le systme de distribution bres optiques avec des signaux trs forts: 80-83 dBV pour la FI satellite et 85 pour celle terrestre. La valeur maximale est de 95 64 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

Steffen Kuck

est le directeur technique de SPAUN pour le systme optique

dBV. Steffen Kuck, directeur technique chez SPAUN, nous expliquait: Notre systme optique est conu pour des performances maximales ce qui exige en effet, un fort signal dentre. Nous avons inject notre appareil de test, un signal rel du satellite HotBird. Nous avons connect les metteurs au rcepteur avec des cbles bres optiques courts. Ainsi, pour simuler des rpartiteurs optiques (ou trs, trs longs cbles), nous avons insr un attnuateur optique 10 Db et mme par la suite un attnuateur de 15 dB. Comme vous pouvez le voir sur les graphiques (graphique 1, gra-

phique 2), la sortie du rcepteur ntait que de 5 dB ou 10 dB infrieure par rapport lentre du systme selon lattnuateur que nous avons utilis. Mais quen est-il de la qualit du signal? Elle peut tre value par le taux derreur en modulation (Modulation Error Ratio) lentre et la sortie. Nous avons remarqu une trs faible dtrioration de la qualit du signal. (Graphique 3, graphique 4).Ctait presque insigniante. Si nous avions eu 10 ou 15 dB dattnuation dun long cble coaxial, le signal pourrait tre dj sur le bord du seuil de rception. Et quen est-il des signaux

analogiques terrestres? Pour un puissant porteur (identique celui recommand par SPAUN), tout est rest parfait (48 vs 47 dB). Le systme optique SPAUN transporte vraisemblablement le signal dentre seulement tel quil est reu.

Applications
Ces nouvelles units optiques de SPAUN ouvrent une re nouvelle dans les grands rseaux de distribution TV. Chaque signal optique prsent la sortie de lmetteur peut tre subdivise 32 bres optiques et de ce fait, crer ainsi des pines dorsales importantes dans le rseau. Par exemple, chaque tage dun grand immeuble, nous pouvons avoir un rcepteur optique avec quatre sorties lectriques qui leur tour, peuvent alimenter des mul-

tiswitch classiques et distribuer plus loin vers plusieurs centaines de rcepteurs satellite! Le nombre dabonns qui peuvent tre touchs avec cette nouvelle technologie est vraiment impressionnant. Paralllement, il faut se rappeler que les bres optiques ne permettent pas le passage de signaux DiSEqC. Pour augmenter et mettre plusieurs satellites la disposition lutilisateur nal, il faut multiplier le nombre de bres optiques (8 pour 2 satellites, 12 pour 3 satellites et ainsi de suite) ainsi que les metteurs et rcepteurs. Le nouveau systme dmetteur optique de SPAUN permet non seulement une installation aussi facile, mais assure galement la disponibilit dun signal fort et parfait la prise de chaque utilisateur nal, mme situ au coin le plus recul dun grand rseau.

TEST REPORT

Satellite LNB for C and Ku band

INFOSAT
Thomas Haring

C/Ku band Combifeed with Integrated DiSEqC Switch


SATs C/Ku band feed delivered from Thailand was designed primarily for use on prime focus antennas; although with a little modication ingenuity, it can be tted on an offset antenna. For our rst test we opted to use a 120-cm antenna already installed on the roof of our testing facility. Such a 120-cm antenna already gives you access to thousands of channels from around the world in the Ku band. But as numerous as the Ku band availability really is, long-distance reception is typically achieved only with C band and thanks to this new Combifeed, it is quite easy to retrot your current system for C band reception. Since offset antennas are not normally designed to handle C band feeds, a cable clip, available from any electrical installer, was used to secure the Combifeed to the dish. Its not exactly a professional solution, but it is very effective and inexpensive. The installation required some dexterity but after several attempts and some ne tuning adjustments, the feed was in the correct position. The entire assembly including antenna motor was previously aligned using a standard 40mm Ku band LNB; the less

The C band is popular in many areas of the world, mainly in areas with heavy downpours or high humidity, since under these conditions the C band offers more advantages, being less sensible to rain compared to signals in the Ku band. But even in areas dominated by Ku band signals, as for example in Europe, there are still plenty of C band programmes to get. But erecting a second dish just for C band is often too much of trouble.
Right into this gap comes the C/Ku band LNB on offer by INFOSAT from Thailand. You no longer need two dishes, but you use your existing dish and just replace your current Ku band LNB against INFOSATs combifeed C/Ku band LNB. Of course you would better own a bigger dish, since C band signals usually are less strong than signals in Ku band. In most location, a dish with 120-cm would be sufcient to get in some interesting channels transmitted via satellites in C band. We gave it a test run at our editorial ofces in the center of Europe. INFO-

sensitive C band should therefore be no problem. With great expectations, we turned the antenna to the especially strong EXPRESS AM1 band satellite at 40 east. According to INFOSAT, the Combifeed has a Ku band reception range of 10.7 to 12.75 GHz using LOF (local oscillator frequency) values of 9.75 and 10.6 GHz as well as a C band range of 3.4 to 4.2 GHz with an LOF of 5.150 GHz. The specications also claim a gain of 65dB with a noise gure of 0.3 dB. Our rst tests were aimed at the C band so we quickly set up the correct LOF and then had a look at our spectrum analyzer. It indicated a strong signal located at 3675R. We quickly started a channel scan and found numerous Russian channels with plenty of signal strength. Further on, South American channels with relatively high signal strength could be found on NSS 806 at 40.5 west. A number of MCPC and SCPC transponders were receivable in sufcient quality. Especially strong were some Columbian channels on 4021L and RCN TV on 4016R; unfortunately, this channel was encrypted. Even a package of programs from Venezuela on 3880R could be received but without any bad weather reserves. A few other transponders were also receivable.

The C/Ku band

We were less successful when we tried NSS7 at 22 west where we could only receive 3644R without any problems. On Atlantic Bird 3 at 5 west we were able to easily view 4154L but all the other transponders hovered around the threshold level of the receiver. Even though the signal analyzer identied a number of clearly recognizable peaks on the display, they were still not strong enough for actual reception.

Things looked a little better on INTELSAT 907 at 27.5 west where we could receive three transponders (3715R with just some radio channels, 3831R with feeds from RTP/Portugal and 4048R). On INTELSAT 903 at 34.5 west only one transponder was receivable. For all the other C band satellite receviable at our location our dish was

70 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

simply too small. The normally strong EXPRESS AM44 satellite at 11 west could not be received with our 120cm antenna; the signals that we saw on the spectrum analyzer were too weak. The next step involved

Up until now we were quite pleased with the results we had gotten; now it was time to take a look at Ku band reception. The tions strong such as DTH posiat

19.2 east, HOTBIRD at 13 east, ASTRA2 at 28.2 east or ASTRA 3A at 23.5 east could all be received without any problems. We should mention at this point that the INFOSAT C/Ku band Combifeed is congured for reception of circularly polarized signals. With that said, the circularly polarized signals

taking a closer look towards the east. We stumbled across a few surprises: the (unfortunately encrypted) AFN package on INTELSAT 906 at 64.2 east on 4094L was identied by our receiver, Bangla Vision could be seen on APSTAR 2R at 76.5 east on 4049H and the Express AM1 at 40 east delivered a number of Russian channels with plenty of bad weather reserve.

on EUTELSAT W4 at 36 east could be received in surprisingly good quality.

Included in the package:

the C/Ku band Combifeed by INFOSAT in one housing with feed and jumper cable for the built-in DiSEqC switch.

If you remove the dielectric in the feed, then standard Ku band H/V signals could be received effortlessly. The reasons for the diminished performance of the Combifeed in the Ku band are fairly obvious. On the one hand, the included feed was not designed for use on offset antennas so you really cant blame the manufacturer for this shortfall. On the other hand, the homemade feed holder makes it rather difcult to perfectly align the LNB in the focal point of the antenna. And lets not forget that the C band is much more forgiving compared to the Ku band in terms of antenna alignment. Overall we can say that it denitely pays to replace your current LNB with the INFOSAT C/Ku band Combifeed. Dont expect miracles with signal quality in the Ku band, but for the reception of the strong C and Ku band positions, the Combifeed would be the perfect choice. At the same time, it gives you a peek at the wonderful world of C band even with a small antenna without having to eliminate the Ku band.

Jeune, mais avec un grand savoir-faire: NetUP de Moscou


Alexander Wiese
Ny a t-il pas contradiction entre les termes jeune et savoir-faire ? Pourtant, elle existe dans de nombreux cas, mais si nous parlons du savoir-faire dans le domaine de la conception, les deux termes vont trs bien ensembles. Jeune dans un tel cas est un atout, car cela signifie quil ny a aucune obligation pour dpendre des volutions passes. Alors, o peut-on trouver un exemple parfait o jeune va la rencontre du savoirfaire ? Si nous parlions de technologie numrique, la Russie vient lesprit. Et si nous soutenons notre hypothse sur le fait que lUniversit de Moscou est classe justement au premier plan parmi toutes les universits du monde quant il sagit denseignement et de recherche dans la technologie numrique donc la Russie semble tre cheval!
En fait, cest un triple coup: NetUP, une socit fonde tout rcemment, en 2001, a son sige administratif proximit de lUniversit de Moscou. La plus proche station mtro est universit et les deux fondateurs de NetUP sont -Naturellement! - des anciens tudiants de cette universit. En fait, ce nest pas seulement les deux fondateurs qui sont diplms de lUniversit dEtat de Moscou, mais presque tous les autres employs galement. Il est clair pour tout le monde que NetUp rassemble le savoir faire collective sur la technologie numrique alors que chaque travailleur de NetUP est encore trs jeune. Commenons par Abylay Ospan, qui est lun des fondateurs de lentreprise et agit comme directeur: Jai 30 ans, dit-il en souriant. Son fondateur associ est Evgeniy Makeev qui dtient un doctorat en mathmatiques et vient davoir 29 ans. Les deux se proccupent profondment de tout qui a trait avec la technologie numrique, ce qui montre une indication claire de leur passion devenue profession.

est le chef de dveloppement de logiciels et connait exactement le grand effort consenti pour un tel projet. Pour la carte DVBS2, deux de nos ingnieurs ont travaill ensemble pendant un semestre jusqu ce que le matriel tait prt pour la production. Deux autres ingnieurs software ont crit les pilotes requis pour le logiciel bas sous Linux. NetUP a mme fait un effort important dans la recherche dun bon fabricant pour la production de cartes. Une usine 100 km environ de Moscou a prit en charge la fabrication de nos cartes PC. Les cartes sont destines pour les installations professionnelles seulement, ce qui signie que les quantits de production sont infrieures par rapport ceux dune consommation grand public. Nous ne produisons que 1000 cartes environ par an, nous dit Abylay Ospan . Cela nous a rendu curieux et impatient pour dcouvrir la suite qui est renferme dans le pipeline de NetUP. lheure actuelle vers la n de 2010, nous lanons une carte PCIe pour la TNT et DVB-C. Tout comme la carte DVB-S2, cette carte, possde aussi, deux entres et

tuners. Nous travaillons galement sur une carte avec deux entres ASI. Les cartes PCIe de NetUP ne sont pas orientes vers le march des utilisateurs naux individuels. Elles sont utilises dans des quipements professionnels dmission de ux, identiques au DVB de NetUP vers la passerelle 4x dIP et Combin 4x IPTV .Le dernier (Combo 4x IPTV) est un produit spcial pour le march de lhtellerie. Il sagit de tout-en-une solution IPTV qui comprend le middleware IPTV, la facturation, DVB passerelle IP et le serveur VoD (Voir le rapport de test dans TELE-satellite 10-11/2010). Ces systmes IPTV sont prfrs dans les htels et les hpitaux, parce que chaque chambre peut tre prise en charge individuellement, alors que linfrastructure du cble peut tre pose comme un systme de bus. Un de nos plus importants groupes de clients sont les htels qui favorisent gnralement des systmes deux voies. Cela signie que les clients de lhtel sont non seulement en mesure de bncier dun accs la TV et Internet dans leur chambre, mais aussi permet la direction de lhtel dtre en

mesure denvoyer des messages personnels et domestiques aux clients dans leurs chambres , Abylay Ospan tale les raisons qui sont derrire de telles infrastructures. Il y a une autre caractristique qui montre que les cartes PCIe de NetUP sont conues pour le march professionnel haut de gamme: Nous venons de commencer aujourdhui expdier nos cartes bases sur le chipset ALTERA. Pourquoi cela est tellement spcial? Eh bien, le matriel est identique pour chaque client sauf le logiciel de la carte PCIe qui dnit son champ dapplication. Au troisime trimestre de 2011, nous baserons galement notre carte de 2 x DVB-S2 - Qui a t prsente dans TELE-satellite - sur le chipset ALTERA, ajoute le directeur des ventes de NetUP Konstantin Emelyanov. Parlant de produits dj prsents dans TELE-satellite: La passerelle 4x DVB-IP de NetUP peut tre commande avec un codeur/ transcoder H.264 partir du 3me trimestre 2011.Les choses deviennent encore plus passionnante vers la n de 2011, lorsque Nous offrirons la passerelle 4x DVB-IP avec unicast. Cela rendra le dispositif - Qui, jusquici, est disponible uniquement en tant que modle multicast - encore plus conviviale et permettra galement aux profanes de diffuser leurs chanes de tlvision via lInternet. Le directeur de dveloppement de logiciel, Andrew Budkin, a une autre page de nouvelles intressantes au magasin. Ceci fournit une logique conomique pour certains fournisseurs dInternet par satellite dutiliser la bande de base seulement ce qui permet dconomiser la prcieuse bande passante. Cest pourquoi NetUP a dcid de dvelopper les cartes PC avec prcisment cette stratgie lesprit. Les grandes installations pourraient tre

trs intresses par cette technologie, ajoute Abylay Ospan et donne lexemple suivant: Gazprom utilise cette technologie une voie pour ses rseaux locaux. NetUP est justement le spcialiste pour concevoir les produits adquats entier avec le logiciel correspondant pour des applications de niche identique cela. Jusqu prsent, nous avons entendu parl de toutes ces histoires grand succs sur les produits innovants, mais qui sont les gens derrire et qui font tout le travail ? En jetant un coup dil autour des locaux de NetUP, cela donne une certaine rponse cette question. Un total de dix ingnieurs et programmeurs travaillent dans le dveloppement, dix autres sont des ingnieurs et des programmeurs dans le support technique pour rsoudre les problmes que les clients professionnels pourraient rencontrer, et une autre dizaine de salaris est en charge de la gestion et ladministration. Le directeur des ventes Konstantin Emelyanov nous donne une ide de lendroit o les reprsentants des entreprises peuvent se rencontrer en face

face: Chaque anne, nous participons activement lIBC (Amsterdam), le CSTB (Moscou) et lIPTV World Forum (Londres) Si vous tes la recherche dune jeune entreprise avec le savoirfaire tendu, vous tes au bon endroit chez NetUP. La socit est la pointe quand il sagit de la toute dernire technologie IPTV et, pleine de connaissances techniques que les employs de NetUP ont acquis de lUniversit de Moscou.

Tevii la conqute de nouveaux marchs


Tevii - tout en tant une jeune entreprise sest dj fait une solide rputation pour ses cartes PC et ses box USB et, est maintenant au point de lancer une nouvelle gamme pour de nouveaux marchs. Matthias Liu est le fondateur de Tevii et directeur des ventes le plus actif de la socit. Il rvle quelques projets davenir au cours dune runion que nous avons tenu avec lui Munich, lune des nombreuses destinations travers le monde, quil a rcemment visit.
Pour lentre en matire, Matthias Liu nous donne un bref aperu de son parcours depuis le dbut: Jusquen 2006, jai t employ comme directeur des ventes pour une compagnie importante dans lindustrie des satellites. Lorsque cette entreprise a t reprise par un autre acteur alors jai pris la dcision de travailler mon propre compte. Quelques anciens parmi ses collgues ont t tous aussi impressionns par sa stratgie envisage des affaires et ont dcid ainsi de le rejoindre. Tevii a commenc avec un effectif global de seulement huit personnes, se rappelle Matthias sur le pass. Il nest jamais facile de partir de zro et le premier point de notre liste de tches a t le dveloppement de nos propres produits. Ce ntait que lanne suivante seulement, 2007 que nous avons pu gnrer un modeste chiffre daffaires. Au cas o vous tes curieux de connaitre le chiffre exact: il a t 250.000 US $ en 2007. Tevii a fait un long chemin depuis, et sattend des ventes atteignant 2,2 millions US $ en 2010 et mme 3 millions $ US, lanne suivante. Parler daffaires solides ! De toute vidence, les effectifs ont galement augment de sorte que nous avons aujourdhui 28 employs, dont un grand nombre 18, sont des ingnieurs en recherche

et dveloppement. Matthias Liu peut vraiment tre er de ce quil a pu raliser dans un laps aussi court de temps. Mais rellement, Tevii, a concerne quoi? Nous nous sommes toujours concentr sur les cartes PC pour la rception satellite. Et pour les utilisateurs de micro portables, notre gamme comprend des botiers USB galement , explique Matthias Liu. Par ailleurs, Matthias lui-mme, ne possde pas une connaissance dengineering, mais un pressentiment able sur les besoins du march. Pour chaque produit, nous nous runissons et valuons si les ventes prvues devraient justier - Et certainement payerLes cots de dveloppement, a t-il expliqu. Ce nest pas tonnant de constater ainsi, que le dpartement R&D est llment cl du modle daffaires de Tevii. La production relle est sous-traite des tiers fabricants de Tawan ainsi qu Shenzen en Chine continentale. Lastuce consiste trouver le bon produit au bon moment, dclare Matthias Liu et illustre ce credo avec un exemple: lheure actuelle par exemple, on a tellement beaucoup parl de DVB-T2, mme si cela est une technologie qui ne commencera faire son apparition dans les marchs que dans deux ans environ. Paralllement cette priode, notre propre produit DVB-T2 sera galement n prt pour le dcollage. Il ny a aucune raison de chercher tre le leader, a sera un gaspillage de

ressources prcieuses qui ne peuvent tre menes terme que si elles sont utilises bon escient. La dcision du moment opportun est la cl du succs conomique. Un examen plus attentif la gamme de produits Tevii conrme un appui supplmentaire cette thorie. Lorsque la socit a t cre en 2007, on a mis sur le march deux produits: la carte PC S400 DVB-S et le module USB S600 pour lutilisation avec des ordinateurs portables. Les deux produits ont t fabriqus avec un tuner provenant de Sharp, qui a t remplac par un tuner NIM de Serit au dbut de 2008. Depuis lors, la dsignation du produit a chang S420 et S630. Lorsque lre DVB-S a lentement pris n et le DVB-S2 tait juste lhorizon, Tevii a lanc les modles de remplacement S464 comme carte PC et le S660 comme botier USB pour ordinateur portable la n de 2008. Et peut tre, vous le saviez pas le Tevii S470 a t introduit en 2009, juste au moment o le monde entier se tournait vers les slots PCIe (PCI Express) en remplacement des plus anciens slots PC. A la n de 2010, une nouvelle demande a t satisfaite avec le lancement dune carte PC avec double tuner - La dsignation du modle est S480 et vante deux tuners DVB-S2. Si vous avez lu toutes les lignes de ce rapport jusquici, vous pouvez probablement le deviner ce qui vient par la suite. Le DVB-T a considrablement gagn du terrain dans le monde entier,

92 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

qui rclame un module avec un tuner pour la rception DVB-S2 et un deuxime tuner pour la DVB-T. Pourtant, Matthias Liu a gard le meilleur pour la fin: Nous offrons actuellement une carte quad tuner pour l a rception DVB-T MPEG-4! Ce produit spcifique a t conu pour un fournisseur Australien. La carte quad tuner est une vente importante dans les rgions proposant une grande offre DVB-T. Une fois de plus, Tevii a attendu le bon moment. Jusqu trs rcemment, le DVB-T na pas volu compltement dans de nombreux pays et les rgions avec plus de quatre frquences DVB-T sont peu nombreuses et disperses. Alors que nous rserve le pipeline de Tevii? Lon simpatiente dcouter Matthias Liu de ce que lui dira son instinct. Au dbut de 2011, nous allons lancer notre premier rcepteur classique avec des options compltes! Il sera appel B600 et vantera un tuner DVB-S2, un systme dexploitation sous Linux, une fonctionnalit PVR, une interfaces USB et Ethernet et - Bien sr - le HDMI, mme si deux connecteurs Pritel assurerons la compatibilit avec les anciens tlviseurs galement. Des slots CI et CA complteront le package. Quest-ce qui a permis Tevii dlargir le segment des cartes PC au march de rcepteurs? Cest en fait assez simple, rpond Matthias Liu. Les cartes PC sont des produits pour un march de niche et maintenant que nous avons acquis une rputation solide dans ce march de niche, il est temps de lancer aussi notre marque dans le march des rcepteurs. Cela ne signifie pas, cependant, que la gamme des cartes PC et les modules USB est nglige. Au premier trimestre de 2011, nous introduirons une exten-

sion CI pour nos modules USB, qui sera suivi au deuxime trimestre par une mme extension pour nos cartes PCIe. A plus long terme, Matthias Liu estime que 2012 sera une bonne anne pour le lancement dune nouvelle ligne de produits : Nous allons ensuite proposer des botiers USB pour la rception par cble du DVB-C. La conception claire de Tevii sur le DVB est une indication que lEurope soit le plus important march de lentreprise. Matthias Liu possde tous les chiffres: Nous dgageons 40% de nos ventes pour lEurope occidentale avec un autre 40% pour lEurope de lEst, y compris la Russie. Les 20% restants proviennent du MoyenOrient et lEgypte. Il existe une raison pour Matthias Liu de mentionner

Nouveau de Tevii: La carte PC S480 pour la rception

minal devices at users site are TV-sets and receiver boxes that optionally have web connection. Please note: not the PCs! With a HbbTV product, the user still has only one remote control and one screen and the operation is as easy as with a regular TV-set and a receiver box. The user enjoys the combined wealth of broadcast and broadband: new services from entertainment providers, online providers and CE manufacturers. Examples are: catch-up TV, video on demand, interactive advertising, personalization, voting, betting, photo sharing or social networking. Enhanced EPG and teletext are also included. Hybrid in the HbbTV name means using on one side the medium typical for todays digital TV broadcast and on the other side the World Wide Web. Specication is independent from the broadcast transmission medium: DVB-T, DVB-S and DVB-C. IP connection is recommend but not required. Of course, the functionality will be limited if one has no connection to the Internet. And now one paragraph for the professionals. The HbbTV specication is based on elements of existing standards and web technologies : OIPF (Open IPTV Forum), CEA, DVB and W3C. Except for the standard web technologies (HTML,

This will not be a surprise for TELE-satellite readers. A new standardization initiative has been started to integrate the digital TV world with the Internet. The basic idea is quite clear: make it as seamless as possible for the end user. TELE-satellite editors often mentioned the obvious truth: the average end user is rarely interested through what transmission medium data is coming to their TV-sets or monitors. Is it via satellite, via cable or via the air? Or perhaps via Ethernet cable rather than the coaxial one used in CATV? And maybe via optical bers?
This is a typical situation in todays rapidly changing industry: most advanced manufacturers demonstrate that new functionalities are possible from the technology and economical point of view and suddenly everybody realizes that if we do not have a good new standard, a number of solutions not compatible with one another will pop up soon. This will trigger a big confusion among the end users, operators and manufacturers. It is in everybodys interest to create a common solution. Exactly this happened in the receiver boxes industry. Our readers certainly remember the test reports describing the receivers capable not only to process satellite TV signal but also enabling the user to surf the Internet. On August 29 2009, a consortium of leading European companies of broadcasters, research institutes, satellite

operators and media and software providers has been established with a goal to prepare a harmonized broadcast and broadband specication for delivery of news and entertainment to the end user. The solution is based on existing standards and web technologies and the ter-

These are: MHEG (Multimedia and Hypermedia Expert Group) popular in the United Kingdom - and MHP (Multimedia Home Platform), an open programming standard developed by DVB and especially popular in Italy. It is expected that HbbTV will be interoperational with them while ensuring signicant enhancement to the viewing experience. It is also expected that the rst two countries in which HbbTV will become popular will be Germany and France.

nize the terms related to digital TV specications and to the Internet. DSM-CC is about downloading data through the digital TV channel while HTTP refers to the same process but through the Internet connection. HTTP and RTSP are the streaming video formats used to deliver movies via the Internet while in DVB we have a transport stream (TS). Java scripts are used in both worlds. Quite often the OSD you can see on the screen is coded with Java. HbbTV has some competitors - other solutions for interactive TV services

HbbTV exemplary implementations were shown at IFA and IBC in 2009. To have an idea about the new look that HbbTV makes possible see the pictures taken at IFA on ARD stand. German operator ARD has demonstrated 14 different applications using HbbTV. The HbbTV specication has been submitted to ETSI by the end of November 2009 under reference ETSI TS 102 796 Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HBBTV).

Satellite Installation

iPhone, iPad and iPod Apps for Antenna Alignment, or: How your smartphone turns into a great tool for DXers and installers
Thomas Haring
Smartphones are currently turning our mobile world upside down and have conquered large segments of the consumer market. They allow us to not only stay in touch through conventional phone calls but also to check our mail, hook up to the Internet, stay up to date on social networking platforms like Twitter and Facebook, listen to music, shoot photos and help us with all sorts of everyday tasks. Yet, smartphones can also be used in the professional realm to help with the installation of satellite antennas, for example.
If we look at all the shiny smartphones on offer these days there is one particular kind that seems to ride a gigantic wave of success: Of course were talking about the Apple iPhone which in combination with the iTunes store offers a wealth of additional applications (socalled apps) to pimp it up. TELE-satellite has looked at a range of apps that might be handy with regard to satellite reception.

DishPointer Compass superimposes the Clarke Belt on


the camera to create augmented reality

they start out with determining the current location with the help of the iPhones buit-in GPS receiver. Next, you enter the satellite position youd like to receive and the app then calculates azimuth, elevation and skew parameters. In theory, these values are all you ever need to correctly set up your dish, and most antennas feature a small scale to help you nd the correct position. But if you dont have a compass at our disposal theres one answer you still need to nd, even though the azimuth angle is known: In which horizontal direction do you need to move the antenna? The DishPointer Maps app provides the answer by looking up data from Google Maps. On the phones display you see your location and its surroundings in map view, satellite view or hybrid view combining both, with an arrow clearly indicating which way your satellite antenna should

point. Comparing certain striking points on Google Maps with their real-world counterparts quickly lets you achieve a rough alignment of your antenna. Another aspect that needs to be addressed preferably BEFORE starting with the actual installation job is evaluating the local environment. DishPointer Compass comes into play now as it nds out whether or not a desired satellite position can be received at the actual location and which reception range a motorised antenna is able to cover. Perhaps there are trees, buildings or other obstructions in the way of perfect reception? After all, its of no use to do all the tricky work and mount an antenna only to nd out afterwards that the signals youre looking for dont reach the LNB. With DishPointer Compass its easy to avoid such disappointment. It lets you know which satellites can be received at

DishPointer Compass and DishPointer Maps


Some issues ago we introduced apps from DishPointer (TELE-satellite issues 02-03/2008 and 12-01/2010) and obviously they are featured in this overview as well. Both apps specically deal with satellite antenna installation and alignment and

the current location and where the best mounting place is. The app comes with an extremely comprehensive list of virtually all satellite positions between 180 East and 177 West. With the pro version (listed on the iTunes store as DishPointer Compass) this list can even be edited so that new positions can be added. The less expensive version without editing option is called DishPointer Augmented Reality.

1. Simply touch the display to start

3. Arrows indicate which way the antenna has to be moved

Users start with selecting all those satellites that might be of interest to them. If a satellite is not featured on the prestored list it can easily be added manually (pro version only). A touch of the Camera AR View now activates the built-in camera and the iPhone itself needs to be pointed towards the sky. As if by magic the smartphones display does not only show the actual camera view but also depending on the way you hold and point the phone the Clarke Belt as well as all currently visible satellite positions. This way it is childs play, on one hand, to gure out which satellite is where and, on the other hand, to see at rst glance whether or not there is an unrestricted line of sight between your current location and the satellite. Such combination of actual view and additional information that is inserted by the device is called augmented reality and this new technology is tremendously helpful when it comes to visualise information that would be difcult to obtain otherwise. In the twinkling of an eye you can look at the complete range of a motorised antenna and before you even carry the antenna up to the roof you can check which satellites will be received and which wont. Its apps like these that can turn a regu4. Green arrows in the lower area mean the antenna has to be moved another 10 to the West in order to receive signals from THOR at 1 West 5.

lar smartphone into an indispensable tool for professional and amateur installers. Here at TELE-satellite weve been using both DishPointer apps for some time now and can unreservedly say that youd be hard pressed to nd a more reliable way of determining the reception situation at any given location. No more unnecessary work and no more wasted time and money.

received the grid is moved along the map like a slider and the app shows which satellite is to be found at the current position of the grid. You then need to nd your own location on the map and read the values that are indicated with circles. In our test we were not really impressed by that approach since the world map appears rather small on the iPhones display. This makes it difcult to accurately determine your actual location, which in turn may lead to signicant deviations from correct parameters. The augmented reality version of this app uses the integrated camera of the iPhone and superimposes the Clarke Belt with the corresponding satellite positions. As with the DishPointer Compass app you need to point the iPhone towards the sky and move it until the Clarke Belt appears on the display. Unfortunately this feature, too, is inferior to the DishPointer app: While the Satellite Augmented Reality app features a comprehensive list of prestored satellites all of which can be selected or unselected for displaying we didnt appreciate the fact the Clarke Belt itself is not shown as a continuous

EasySat
EasySat comes with a database of 173 satellites complete with their full names and orbital positions. Thanks to the builtin positioning system of the iPhone this app calculates azimuth, elevation and skew of any desired satellite with regard to the current location. There is also a virtual Clarke Belt for you to select the desired satellites, or you may choose to pick your preferred orbital position from a pre-stored list. For those of you with an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 with integrated compass there even is a convenient graphic display showing satellite installers the way to the correct azimuth value. Red and green arrows pop up until you point the phone accurately in the direction of the required satellite. If you now point the antenna in the same direction as well you have already achieved a rough alignment. We tried it out in a real-world scenario and were very pleased with the results.

Satellite Sliderule Pro & Satellite Augmented Reality


This app comes in two versions: One is for the iPhone 3G without compass (Satellite Sliderule Pro), and the other is for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with compass (Satellite Augmented Reality). Both versions show a world map with geographic borders of all countries and superimpose grid-like rulers for determining azimuth and elevation values. Depending on the satellite that is to be

In our opinion this feature serves no useful purpose and wastes valuable display space after all, the iPhones display is on the smaller side for satellite installation anyway. To be fair, this app is less expensive than most competing products with 1.59 (US$ 1.99) for the simpler version and 3.99 (US$ 4.99) for the augmented reality version. On the other hand, due to limited usability we still cannot wholeheartedly recommend this solution.

The pre-stored satellite list that comes with the Satellite Finder app is comprehensive, up-to-date and easy-to-use with all data presented in a clear and concise fashion. We liked the fact that each satellite is directly linked to a transponder list so that transponder data are available via Safari for each satellite, if required. All this, however, cannot make up for the fairly high price of this app, which stands at 8.99 (US$ 10.99) and is denitely too high from a cost/benet perspective.

Conclusion
As you have seen, quite a number of apps deal with satellite antenna installation and alignment. Obviously, this overview can only provide a snapshot of what is available at a given point in time, as the number of apps increases almost by the day. Resourceful software developers are probably working on even better solutions this very moment and as always beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While particular features may be an absolute must for some, others will go out of their way to avoid them. We have tried to establish factual criteria for rating all apps in this overview, but we would still urge our readers to try out and see for themselves which app they like best. For a rough orientation have a close look at the screenshots provided or the information available on the iTunes store.

The DishLoc app sports a clever design and easy-to-use interface. It comes with an extensive database of all direct-tohome satellites, determines the current location by using the iPhones integrated GPS receiver and adjusts the list of satellites accordingly. We genuinely liked that approach because it just wouldnt make sense for a German user to be shown satellite positions such as ECHOSTAR 14 at 119 West, for example. Unless you decide to dig a hole through the earth youll never have a chance of receiving signals from that position in Germany. As a next step, one or more satellites can be selected for detailed analysis. As soon as the current location is set either manually or determined via GPS all satellite entries come with correct azimuth, elevation and skew values. We found this to be a very convenient feature.

DXer REPORT

Rainer Schulz and Berndt Rosenberger, Lausitz, Germany

Two Satellite DIY enthusiasts


Have you ever built a satellite receiver yourself? Not many have, but Rainer Schulz from the small town of Trbitz an der Lausitz in the East of Germany is one of the very few who achieved just that in 1988. And he didnt stop there: He even built a 1.5m antenna to go with it. Its no surprise then that he chose to become self-employed and founded a small satellite dispatching business which today is run by his daughter Daniela Knott.

Trbitz (Cottbus)

Theres no doubt: A house with such

huge antenna in the front yard must be occupied by DXers. In case youre wondering the antenna can be rotated and therefore receives signals from 31 satellites in an arc from 83 East to 58 West.

Rainer Schulzs company is based in a pretty family home that looks just like many others in the Lausitz area. A huge 3.66m satellite antenna that is surrounded by several smaller dishes reveals whats going on inside. In an annex next to the garage visitors find a small showroom with receivers that might be interesting for DXers, above all. These boxes are equipped with lowthreshold tuners and a reliable blind san mode, both of which are key features of DX receivers. This box, for instance, comes with an extremely accurate signal quality indicator, Rainer Schulz explains and points to a receiver providing immediate feedback with regard to changing signal quality. 19% means there is stable video, 18% means some artefacts will occur and 17% means reception is not possible anymore. Such attention to detail is additional proof of Rainer Schulzs DX credentials. It all started in 1988 when he was manager of the measurement and control systems department at a large manufacturer of agricultural machinery in Eastern Germany. At the time the Berlin Wall was still in place and there was no way you could get your hands on satellite receivers, LNBs or antennas in what was the German Democratic Republic. Yet, Rainer Schultz was in a privileged position: I also used to work in customer service for my employer, which meant I was allowed to

out on top of the showroom: The Ku band LNB in the centre is surrounded by a C band LNB for linear polarisation and a second C band LNB for circular polarisation. The whole system is motor-powered for automatic alignment.

Meet the boss: Daniela Knott acts as managing director and is seen here

in the showroom next to a display cabinet filled with a huge range of multiswitches. 70% of our customers are regular users, while 30% are genuine satellite DXers. Some 80% of sales are achieved in Germany, with another 10% going to Austria and 5% each to Denmark and the Netherlands, she says.

undertake business trips to West Germany. There he obtained a tuner, an LNB as well as a wiring diagram and smuggled everything back to East Germany. He used the workshop of his employer to build his first self-made receiver with the components and information collected in the West. I even went so far as to build an antenna as well, he walks down memory lane. I made a parabolic mould using concrete in my backyard, laid it out with epoxide resin and glass-fibre sheet and in the end had a perfectly usable 1.5m dish. Up to this day Rainer Schulz is proud of his early achievements and even digs up the receiver he made back then from the basement. And as if that wasnt enough, there is even a signal meter around that he also built himself back then. Obviously, his technical knowledge didnt go unnoticed and so it came about that he built a total of ten receivers himself. They were sold on for tons of money, as CATV head-ends, in particular, were interested in satellite receivers and paid up to 6.000 marks per unit. After the Berlin Wall had come down all this was to change dramatically. Truckloads of satellite equipment were sent from West Germany, but also farming equipment from the West all of a sudden was available alongside homegrown products. The transition from centrally planned socialist economy to free market was felt first-hand by Rainer Schulz, as sales of his employers company slumped and he was laid off. What he did then was turn his tumbling blocks into stepping stones. It was the second of July 1990 when my first company Antennen- & Satanlagenbau Rainer Schulz opened for business. In 2000 sat-

Berndt Rosenberger has been a satellite DXer for

just as long. Here he considers his options of how to convert a mast mounting system to make it fit to an actuator. A dish manufacturer has asked Rainer and Berndt to find a solution for that.

Another invention: Thanks

to a small motor the Ku band LNB can be skewed. On the second picture you can see the component before installation, and the third picture shows the control unit.

This is controlling the LNB,

this time for the C band: the motor (red) turns the LNB. Next picture shows the control unit.

C band reception with only a small

antenna? No problem, if you know how and where to mount the LNB. One antenna manufacturer has equipped a 1.2m dish with alternative rods that allows to arrange both the Ku band LNB in the focal point and the C band LNB outside the focal point using a rail system. Even the DiSEqC switch fits in. At our location this system allows reception of three C band satellites at 40 East, 5 West and 30.5 East, explains Berndt Rosenberger.

A look inside the AVCOM LNB: Only the crossshaped element in the background is rotated. Depending on the 45 turn either linear or circular signals can be received.

shop24 was established as a second string to Rainer Schulzes bow and in 2004 the registered name was changed to E-Commerce Schulz & Knott GbR (satshop24.de). Berndt Rosenberger used to work for Antennen- & Satanlagenbau R. Schulz from 1990 until his retirement. Before that his career had been similar to that of Rainer Schulz. He, too, built his first satellite antenna himself, even though he sourced his first satellite receiver from friends of a friends friend as was the case with so many things in former East Germany. What I did invent so to speak was a rather peculiar way of setting up polar mount antennas, Berndt Rosenberger remembers. We waited for a pitchblack night and then used a tube which we aligned exactly towards the polar star. This meant we had a precise northern alignment and this is how we then erected the antenna mast. With Berndt and Rainer in the background the business embarked on a route of steady success. The first few years were immensely successful. We were able to sell some 500 fully-fledged systems per annum, and we also installed most of them 136 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 12-01/201 www.TELE-satellite.com 1

Another innovation of the two satellite experts: The original

LNB rail of this multi-LNB antenna did not have enough space to squeeze in another LNB for reception of HISPASAT at 30 West. But then again, who says you cant extend the rail? Right, but you have to take into account that an extended rail needs a modified shape. As you can see on the picture what they did was use a piece of empty pipe as dummy LNB and attached the HISPASAT LNB in an upward bend. While you cant receive every single transponder, most of them are still available, Berndt Rosenberger says.

ourselves, they remember the initial days of their cooperation. Starting in 1994 business slowed down and they shifted their focus on cable systems in turn. In 2003 they began experimenting with the C band and installed a 1.2m antenna with two LNBs: One for linear signals and the other for circular signals. Two years later the huge 3.66m antenna purchased from satellite wholesaler DOEBIS followed suit. With this new equipment they were able to experiment some more and aim for reception under extreme conditions as well. Of course this also allowed them to gain additional expertise. For C band reception we constructed a special skewing mechanism: Depending on the reception sample either circular or linear polarisation was received. This way a dielectric was not required any longer. For Ku band reception they have some innovations in store as well when it comes to extreme reception conditions: If you use a polar mount antenna this is of particular importance, as polarisations are not always set at a precise 90 angle, Berndt Rosenberger explains the reason behind.

Using the best LNBs, the most suitable receivers and their own inventions for LNB skewing they managed to receive signals from satellites that are far out of footprint at their location. In the meantime, they had worked up a solid reputation in the DXing scene and they still organise a DXer meeting every year. Last year a total of 300 DXers from all over Germany took part, Rainer Schulz who is also known as Ponny on the Internet remembers. Some participants even travelled from Austria, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic or Hungary to be at our get-together, he adds. Anyone interested in attending next time should mark 11 June 2011 on their calendar. It will be a brilliant chance to have a chat with a top-notch DX professional. Rainer Schulz and Bernd Rosenberger are no longer involved in the day-to-day management of their business. I retired in 2009 and my son Carsten Schulz took over receiver and antenna construction as well as my share in the company. Rainer Schulzs daughter Daniela Knott is the managing director and reveals some inside information. We only sell to end

customers, with our top-selling product being the T90 multi-LNB antenna. Almost 90% of sales are generated with this product alone. Some 5% of sales are with the 1.2m antenna, Daniela Knott adds. Connecting rod motors required for rotating antenna systems also sell well. This product list alone is proof enough for the fact that special requirements are at the heart of the companys business. After all, large dishes as well as multiLNB antennas are only required by satellite enthusiasts looking for more than just your standard fare. For them the company also offers a wide range of accessories such as multi-switches required for simultaneous reception of more than one satellite position. Rainer Schulz and Berndt Rosenberger have chosen the right path and turned they hobby into their profession. They are rewarded not only with a flourishing business, but also with a reputation of being profound DXers willing to help and assist anybody who cares to ask. With their annual DXer meetings they spread their knowledge in the satellite community, which makes them a valuable asset.

With the right equipment read: huge antenna, excellent LNB, extremely low-threshold tuner in the receiver, perfect alignment of the LNB to the focal point its possible to receive channels that are no where near the official footprint of a satellite.

1. Reception of INSAT at 83 East with the 3.66m antenna on the C band. 2. Reception of North Korean channel KCTV on THAICOM at 78.5 East, also with the 3.66m antenna. 3. Common wisdom says this channel cannot be received, but here it is: RSACOM at 2.8 East focuses on Africa, but is available even in eastern Germany with a 3.66m dish. 4. The HD channel of Japanese broadcaster NHK via INTELSAT 9C at 58 West. 5. In order to receive INTELSAT 9C the 3.66m antenna has to be aligned exactly to that position. The extremely low elevation of just 2.7 is most striking. This means the antenna is at an almost upright position and hardly points above the horizon. As layers close to the earths surface cause more attenuation this makes for very tricky reception, apart from a myriad of physical obstacles like trees which obstruct a clear view to the satellite.

CITY REPORT

Satellite Reception in Shanghai, China

Satellite Dishes in Shanghai


Shanghai is a city with a population of 20 million people and if you decide to take a walk one day and look around youll nd satellite dishes ranging in size from the newest 35cm DTH antennas to all the way up to extremely large 20-meter monstrosities. But lets not forget that ofcially satellite dishes are prohibited in China. Hong Bo, born and raised in Shanghai and also an enthusiastic HDTV satellite fan, took us on a small tour of Shanghais world of satellite antennas.

Shanghai

Hong Bo, who uses the nickname Homeboy in the Internet, rst took us southwest about 20 km from downtown Shanghai. The immense satellite antennas of Shanghais Xinzhuang satellite station are located right next to the RT market shopping center. Former US President Richard Nixon brought those two 20-meter dishes with him in 1972, explained Hong Bo who then conrmed that these two antennas are used by the Chinese military. But a number of smaller dish antennas are located alongside the two large

dishes. These are used to uplink Shanghais local TV channels to CHINASAT 6 at 115 east, explains Hong Bo. Using Shanghais elevated roadways that at many intersections tend to be stacked on top of each other, we continued our tour with a stop at one of Chinas most modern and sophisticated walled-in residential areas: Mandarine City in western Shanghai. Wang Yinchung is the technician in charge of the TV system and, not surprisingly, is also a satellite DXer. In his case he man-

aged to turn his hobby into his profession! Wang Yinchung explains to us, This residential complex is made up of about 50 apartment buildings and houses roughly 1500 families. Many of them are from Japan and Korea and naturally they want to be able to see TV from home. Wang Yinchung erected a collection of satellite antennas on top of one of the apartment buildings and installed all of the distribution components in

the elevator control room. Using original receivers from Japan and Korea (provider: Skylife), he takes all of the desired channels and routes them into the cable system of the apartment complex. This, of course, begs the question, what can an individual person do if they want to install a satellite system? Our satellite guide Hong Bo referred us to Hang Hao. He is one of those

satellite installers that theoretically doesnt exist yet is responsible for the endless number of satellite dishes that are installed on balconies and walls for renters and apartment occupants. But how do these people know who to contact if they want a dish installed? You wont find an ad for an installer in any magazine or newspaper or even in the Internet. That all happens by word of mouth, explains Hang Hao, A sat-

isfied customer will tell his friend and that person will tell another, and so on. We asked Hang Hao how he managed to get into this business: I installed my own first dish back in 2000. Back then it was a 60cm antenna for APSTAR 2A reception at 76.5 east. In the meantime, Hang Hao has become a full time installer. I install about 100 systems every month, that is, dish, LNB, receiver and mounting assembly.

Shanghais local TV channels can be seen from the shopping malls parking lot.

He tells us that 90% of his customers opt for 60cm antennas while the remaining 10% choose 100 cm dishes. AGILA is the favorite for my mostly foreign customers since mostly English-language channels can be found there, says Hang Hao. If there arent any shops around where you can get satellite products, how does Hang Hao get his hands on the materials he needs? He tells us that he buys them directly from the manufacturers that are for the most part in Shenzhen in Chinas south. But this only works for those who buy in large quantities like Hang Hao. Theres another source when smaller quantities are involved: That would be the Electronic Market on Qinyiang Road right by

the Baoshan Metro station of lines 3 and 4, adds our satellite guide Hong Bo. So naturally our next stop takes us to this market. Here in a maze of streets and shops where youll find numerous visitors walking among an uncounted number of shops, it didnt take long for us to find one that was selling satellite dishes. In this case it was the small 35cm antennas for receiving the Chinese DTH satellites. We also found different receiver brands in another shop. Seek and yee shall find what youre looking for in Shanghai; you can either have your system installed by a professional like Hang Hao or you can choose to install it yourself. You just have to find all the necessary hardware in Shanghais Electronic Market. 143
