Chers lecteurs,
Cette fois-ci, TELE-satellite a discern le prix de lInnovation pour un produit qui est en fait de lautre ct . Normalement, TELE-satellite se focalise sur les rcepteurs et non les metteurs Alors pourquoi le changement? Parce quavec lIPTV - Tlvision par Internet une nouvelle re commence stablir ! Pourquoi est-cela? Jetons un coup dil de plus prs sur la technologie de rception : a na pas dimportance si cest une rception par satellite, terrestre ou rception par cble: il y avait toujours deux parties pour la technologie - un metteur et un rcepteur. a navait aucune importance si le signal TV a t mis sans l, cest dire retransmis par satellite ou par voie hertzienne, ou par lintermdiaire dun cble, tel le cas dun rseau cbl de tlvision, Toute chaine devait tre retransmise simultanment, puis slectionne dans le tuner du rcepteur. Mais ce principe de base nest plus de mise pour lIPTV: lmetteur IPTV envoie uniquement le programme spcique que le rcepteur lautre extrmit en a demand. Il nexiste plus de tuner! premire vue, cela ne semble pas tellement surprenant mais aprs avoir jet un second regard on ralise quun rcepteur IPTV est de loin beaucoup moins cher. Un rcepteur IPTV est un rcepteur sans tuner. Certains fabricants, dsignent mme ces rcepteurs box sans tuners ; les autres composants dun rcepteur IPTV sont presque identiques ceux que lon retrouve dans chaque rcepteur satellite, terrestre ou cble. Rcepteur sans tuner, signie aussi une autre chose: aucune antenne ! Le tlspectateur prenait toujours en charge les cots dinstallations dune antenne approprie quelle tait parabolique ou terrestre. Avec le rseau cbl, le fournisseur tait responsable des cots impliqus dans linstallation du cble coaxial tout le long jusquau salon du tlspectateur. Mais ce fournisseur tait ensuite en mesure de rcuprer ces cots grce labonnement mensuel que le tlspectateur devait payer pour le service du cble. En dautres termes, les frais de rception taient toujours imputs la poche du tlspectateur. Avec lIPTV, ces cots ont pour la plupart disparu. Une connexion Internet est considre aujourdhui comme chose normale tel un branchement un rseau lectrique. TELE-satellite na jamais mentionn la faon dont on branche un rcepteur au rseau lectrique, ctait vident! Et ces jours-ci, il est galement admis de dire que chaque tlspectateur dispose dune connexion Internet. Il nest pas ncessaire de sinquiter sur des choses qui sont videntes. Si lon peut assumer que chaque foyer dispose dune connexion Internet, ce qui signie que lIPTV est devenue un moyen de remplacement peu coteux pour regarder la tlvision. Et cela est galement vrai pour les fournisseurs de programme qui doivent le prendre en considration, galement. Certes, il faut admettre que puisque nous sommes globalement, encore au stade initial de laccs haut dbit Internet, la ralit est que nous ne sommes pas encore rapprochs de prs, mais il est clair que le dveloppement va dans ce sens. Avec lIPTV la retransmission dun canal ainsi que sa rception est tellement bon march que nimporte qui pourrait potentiellement tre un directeur de programmation. Limmense libert que la tlvision par satellite nous a procur, il ya quelques dcennies refait surface maintenant avec lre de lIPTV et cette grande libert est maintenant offerte pour les fournisseurs de programme: Tout le monde peut devenir un directeur de programmation et il peut transmettre autant de chanes quil le dsire. Aucune limitation !

NetUP DVB-IP Gateway 4x Perfect ease of use, combined with reliable technology ideal for IPTV providers.

Jusqu il ya quelques annes, la tlvision via Internet ou Ethernet a t au-del de notre imagination. Cependant, aujourdhui, les cbles de bre optique haute capacit et le dploiement incessant des connexions large bande jusqu la salle de sjour sont devenus une ralit. LIPTV est une option parmi tant dautres et qui en ces jours-ci, rivalise avec la tlvision par satellite et le cble. Avez-vous dj song la faon dont le contenu est rellement distribu via IPTV?
Pour rpondre cette question, nous avons examin la passerelle DVB-IP offerte par NetUP, qui est le systme idal pour les petites installations, comme par exemple dans les htels ou les hpitaux, mais aussi pour les utilisateurs privs ou toute autre personne, qui veut distribuer un contenu TV sur Internet. La passerelle 4x DVB-IP de NetUp est un produit professionnel, ce qui signie que toute la technologie est contenue dans un boitier de 19 pouces. En outre, toutes les interfaces de connexion importantes sont situes la fois sur les panneaux frontal et arrire, ce qui est une autre indication claire que la passerelle nest pas l pour meubler le salon ct de la TV,mais devrait tre installe plutt dans une armoire pour serveur ddi ou un rack professionnel de 19 pouces . Sur le panneau frontal vous trouvez un cran LCD deux lignes, indiquant le mode de fonctionnement actuel et fournissant une aide prcieuse lors de linstallation initiale des interfaces de rseaux. Evoquant cela, il ya un ensemble de six de telles interfaces, qui peuvent tre toutes congures individuellement. Au dessus de

ces connexions, il ya 10 LEDs et vers la droite, cinq boutons permettent un contrle direct de lunit. Outre les interfaces de rseau mentionnes ci-dessus, il ya deux ports USB pour connecter des supports de stockage externes et un port RS-232 pour lenvoi dindication de statut un cran externe. Quatre entres IF satellites nous saisissent quand on regarde le panneau arrire. Elles sont ncessaires pour recevoir les signaux pour un traitement approfondi. Puisque nous parlions ici, dun appareil professionnel, il nen demeure que chaque entre du tuner est quipe dune fente dinterface commune ddie. Cela signie

quun maximum de quatre modules CI peut tre utilis en relation avec cette passerelle qui est galement livre avec un interrupteur mcanique. Tous les composants vantent une extraordinaire qualit de fabrication, lunit dalimentation intgre elle seule, laisse la plupart des concurrents plir en le comparant. Le modulateur est livr avec 2 Go de mmoire ash et un disque dur de 1 To. Lusage professionnel dans la plupart des cas signie une utilisation permanente do, un nombre sufsant de ventilateurs internes est primordial qui permettent une aration stable avec un ux constant dair frais. Sans ces lments, de nombreux composants sensibles courent le risque de surchauffe, ce qui se traduirait inluctablement par une panne. L aussi, il est plus quvident que cette passerelle nest pas conue pour une utilisation dans un salon, puisque les ventilateurs produisent du bruit qui est facilement quivalent celui dun aspirateur standard.de nettoyage. Regarder la tl ct de la passerelle est pratiquement impossible Mais comme mentionn prcdemment, la passerelle doit tre place dans une chambre ddie de serveur, de toute faon, o les ventilateurs peuvent bourdonner

tranquilement. Le fabricant livre ce systme avec une gamme complte daccessoires de montage de sorte que le compartiment peut tre insr dans un rack standard de 19 pouces ou dans une armoire pour serveur. Le manuel fourni avec la passerelle est dun design trs convivial et devrait rpondre toute question qui pourrait en surgir. Avant de pouvoir accder la passerelle pour la premire fois, une connexion rseau doit tre tablie. cette n, lune des six interfaces rseau disponible est connecte directement soit un PC ou avec un router et elle est attribue une adresse IP. Les cinq boutons sur le panneau frontal entrent en jeu ici, ainsi que lafchage LCD. En thorie, vous pouvez congurer les adresses IP pour toutes les trois interfaces rseau directement sur lappareil; Par amour la simplicit, nous recommandons de commencer avec un port et de traiter avec les cinq autres travers linterface web qui devient disponible ds que le premier port est reli. De cette faon, tous les paramtres peuvent tre slectionns dans le navigateur Web du PC. Ds que la premire adresse IP est attribue la passerelle, Tout ce que vous devez faire est de saisir cette adresse dans la ligne dadresse de votre navigateur pour accder au serveur Web intgr. Vous devez saisir un nom dutilisateur correct et mot de passe qui sont xs des valeurs standard par dfaut. Nous recommandons fortement dutiliser un nom dutilisateur et mot de passe individuels pour sassurer que la passerelle est protge contre les accs non autoriss. Linterface Web est extrmement facile utiliser et ressemble MS Windows Donc, elle sera familire tous. Dans le menu principal, il ya cinq lments (chiers, IPTV, administration du systme, conguration du systme et ltat du systme), avec conguration et administration attirant plus dattention, bien sr. A laide de cette interface Web intgre, tous les six ports de rseau peuvent tre grs sparment et des donnes dutilisation pour chacun des ports peuvent tre consultes ga-

Chacun des quatre tuners DVB-S2 peut tre install et congur individuellement. Des fonctions que nous nous sommes habitus voir dans de rcepteurs pour une utilisation domestique - Telle la recherche automatique, des options DiSEqC tendues, recherche aveugle et dautres gadgets techniques - Ne sont pas disponibles, puisquil sagit dquipement profes-

chaque tuner, ainsi que de dnir une simple conguration DiSEqC 1.0 et lactivation du signal de 22 kHz. En outre, vous devez saisir la frquence du transpondeur ncessaire, le dbit symbole utilis et la polarisation et complter avec lalimentation correspondante pour la tte(LNB). Ds que la passerelle a dtect un trans-

lement. Dans le cas o vous vous demandez pourquoi un ensemble de six ports Ethernet sont disponibles, alors quun seul suft. La rponse est plutt simple. Avec quelques ports Ethernet, il est possible de distribuer des chaines sur diffrents niveaux, ce qui signie quun niveau peut approvisionner des chanes qui ne sont pas disponibles sur un autre niveau de distribution. Ainsi il est possible de crer jusqu six bouquets diffrents de chanes qui sont tous reus et traits par la mme passerelle, mais peuvent tre composs de chaines compltement diffrentes et qui peuvent tre distribus, commercialiss ou vendus sparment. En outre, chaque adaptateur de rseau peut tre attribu des adresses IP diffrentes de sorte que plusieurs niveaux sont disponibles dans la mme architecture du rseau. Enn, il ya aussi la question de bande passante que le contenu de haute dnition peut en avoir besoin pour la distribution sur plus dune connexion. Notre produit tester tait livr avec tuner DVB-S2 de satfour, ce qui signie que nous tions en mesure de recevoir, traiter et distribuer des signaux satellites selon les spcications du client, toutefois, la passerelle DVB-IP 4x de NetUP sera galement en mesure de recevoir la DVB-T, DVB-C et les signaux analogiques, en changeant le module de rception de la mme faon quun module hard Plug &

EPG des canaux reus qui sont rediriges vers lintergiciel pour un traitement dtaill et seront fournies de cette manire, au dmodulateur IPTV. Dans notre conguration de test, nous avons choisi denvoyer des signaux de quatre satellites diffrents la passerelle. En dtail, les signaux provenaient des transpondeurs suivants: BBC sur ASTRA 28,8 Est, sur MBC NILESAT 7 Ouest, ORF sur ASTRA 19,2 Est et un quatrime rpteur sur TURKSAT 42 Est. Mme en fournissant aux tuners un signal la limite plutt faible de ABS1 75 Est, tous les quatre dentre eux ont t capables de donner une sortie vido et audio irrprochable. Nous ne pouvions tout simplement en demander plus ! Globalement, nous sommes arrivs un ensemble impressionnant de 32 chanes de tlvision qui ont t regroups en un multicast utilisant ladresse IP 224.200.200.201. Nous pouvions galement laisser le port avec 1234, par exemple, et distribuer les canaux individuels en utilisant des adresses IP spares comme 224.200.200.202, 224.200.200.203 et ainsi de suite. A la rception nous avons utilis un Azbox Ultra HD (voir le rapport de test dans le numro prcdent de TELEsatellite du 08-09/2010), qui est actuellement lun des seuls trs rare rcepteurs capables de traiter LIPTV aux cts de DVB-S2. Congurer le Azbox pour recevoir les chanes de notre propre rseau IPTV a t un jeu denfant et nous tions en mesure de zappez den haut en bas sur une liste de 32 chaines en un rien de temps. Bien sr, il est inutile de mettre en place un tel rseau IPTV pour un seul rcepteur de client, cest pourquoi nous avons largi notre installation an dinclure divers ordinateurs dans notre bureau de rdaction pour laccs lIPTV. Le logiciel de lecteur VLC (disponible sur www.

videolan. Org pour divers systmes dexploitation) sest avr tre une solution pratique pour la rception dIPTV sur le PC, et peu importe les efforts que nous avons dploy, il ny avait aucun moyen pour que nous puissions faire chir la passerelle. En fait, il ny avait mme pas le moindre hoquet. Cela signiait que nous devions concevoir un test qui crerait plus de difcults imaginables la passerelle. Quen est-il de transmettre la chaine britannique un collgue en Thalande via IPTV? Et nous voil repartis et en commenant avec le rglage dune connexion VPN en utilisant deux routeurs VPN de Netgear chaque extrmit

avant dallumer la passerelle IPTV. Quelques secondes peine coules que notre collgue nous a contact sur Skype pour nous informer que notre tentative a t russie. Pour ce que cela vaut, nous devons mentionner ce stade que nous avions un accs Internet trs rapide dans nos bureau, qui offre des vitesses de tlchargement suprieures 20 Mbit/s. Moins que a, ne serait pas sufsant pour le contenu de haute rsolution. En tout cas, notre ami thalandais a t boulevers par la qualit audio et vido ainsi que la vitesse de zapping du bouquet IPTV que nous lui avons envoy. Grace au support DVB-S2, la passerelle nest pas seulement

capable de recevoir et de distribuer SDTV, mais aussi la TVHD MPEG4/H.264. Nous navons dcel aucune erreur lors de la lecture de contenu TVHD via IPTV. En outre, la passerelle dtecte et sajuste automatiquement aux paramtres techniques telles que la modulation et la correction derreur qui sont des caractristiques que nous ne pouvons en faire lloge

beaucoup plus. Limpression densemble impeccable de la passerelle DVB-IP de NetUP est encore complte par un nombre doptions de routage, le disque dur de 1To intgr, ainsi quune caractristique de mise jour de logiciel trs conviviale. Tout ce quil faut est de tlcharger la dernire version du logiciel du site Web du fabricant, et puis le transfrer la passerelle 4x DVB-IP de NetUP via le rseau utilisant le protocole FTP. Elle apparat immdiatement dans le menu mis jour, complte avec le numro de version exacte, et peut tre charge et installe sur un simple clic. Tous les six ports Ethernet sont compatibles au LAN 10/100/1000 Mbits, ce qui signie quils supportent le maximum actuel qui est techniquement faisable. La passerelle elle-mme est en mesure de traiter simultanment jusqu quatre rpteurs avec une bande passante globale de 240MB/s. Avec ses dimensions de 430x44x411, elle sadapte exactement dans un rack standard de 19 pouces ou dans des tiroirs de serveur, et son poids exagr est de 11,5 kg (principalement en raison de son bloc dalimentation). Comme vous lattendiez dquipement professionnel, la passerelle redmarre automatiquement aprs une panne de courant et retourne au dernier mode de fonctionnement utilis. La tension dalimentation de 90 240 VAC et la frquence 47 63 Hz peuvent tre pris en charge par lunit dalimentation, ce qui permet une utilisation internationale de la

passerelle. Lorsquen fonctionnement, la passerelle 4x DVB-IP de NetUP consomme environ 100 W de puissance. Alors que la passerelle 4x lDVB-IP de NetUp est une composante dun grand nombre qui complte un rseau part entire dIPTV, elle peut bien sr tre utilise galement pour sa propre tache, comme nous lavons fait dans notre conguration de test. Elle prend en charge le traitement et la conversion dun signal DVB vers un format compatible IPTV et sert ainsi dinterface entre le signal dentre DVB et le rseau IPTV. Les rcepteurs clients, dautre part, simplement basculent entre les canaux et les bouquets en utilisant diffrentes adresses IP et ports. Avec cette approche dans lesprit, la passerelle pourrait se substituer un nud (backbone) de rseau adquat pour la fourniture de signaux plusieurs moniteurs dans un btiment, et -naturellement - pour la distribution des signaux satellites, de cble ou terrestres via un rseau ou Internet. Parlant de cela, il reste encore voir si nous serons autoriss dbrancher notre passerelle de test, car notre collgue Thalandais semble tre devenu accro la BBC en ce temps. Il soppose fermement quon met n ce test, puisque les chanes de la BBC quil reoit linstant ne sont pas disponibles autrement en Thalande. Dans la plupart des cas, cependant la passerelle

DVB-IP sera utilise comme une partie intgrante dun rseau IPTV beaucoup plus complexe. cette n, la passerelle est relie avec lintergiciel qui cre un OSD graphique de fournisseur spcique et prsente des canaux gnrs par la passerelle dans un design facile utiliser et agrable visuellement. Les oprateurs peuvent mme ajouter des VOD (vido la demande), de facturation ou dautres nouveauts spciques au client, qui rend de tels rseaux IPTV, un systme parfait pour les htels, les hpitaux, les immeubles dhabitation ou dans des domaines dapplication similaires. Nous devons ajouter ce stade que NetUP noffre pas seulement sa passerelle en une seule pice, mais aussi des systmes IPTV complets avec des solutions cls en main. Il peut sagir de faire correspondre des intergiciels et VOD, en dehors de la passerelle au cur du rseau. Le combin 4x IPTV est un de ces systmes, et ici encore nous pouvons dire avec conviction que le fabri-

cant ne propose pas de solutions demi-cur: Les deux la fois, la passerelle 4x DVB-IP et le combin 4x IPTV avec intergiciel intgr sont bass sur le mme matriel. Donc, si un client possde dj la passerelle 4x DVB-IP et ncessite une mise niveau de son systme vers le combin 4x IPTV avec un intergiciel intgr et les services de VOD. Tout ce quil doit faire est dacheter un logiciel extensible pour quil dverrouille dune manire magique tous les caractristiques du combin 4x sans avoir changer un seul composant. Cette option de mise niveau est galement lune des raisons pour lesquelles, chaque passerelle 4x DVB-IP est livre avec un puissant disque dur de 1 To en premier lieu. Sa pleine capacit nest requise, une fois la passerelle sest transforme en combin 4x de IPTV avec VOD, quand le disque dur est rempli de contenu que les utilisateurs prfrent en regarder lorsquils en ont envie. Nous croyons que vous pouvez rsumer ce que vous

La liste de canaux de Azbox HD Ultra, compose de lensemble de canaux de DVB-S et dIPTV

20 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

avez lu jusquici et que nous avons t vraiment impressionns par la passerelle 4x DVB-IP lors de notre test. Une qualit de fabrication extraordinaire avec parfaite facilit dutilisation, sont parmi ses principales caractristiques. Alors que vous avez un manuel comprhensif et bien rdig porte de main en tout temps, il serait probablement trs possible de rgler et de faire fonctionner le systme sans sen servir. Naturellement, des dtails techniques et des conseils pratiques ne peu-

vent tre trouvs que dans la documentation crite. NetUP utilise des tuners seuil trs bas qui fournissent un signal stable mme dans des conditions .trs en dessous du parfait. Grace un ensemble de six ports dEthernet les signaux de sortie peuvent tre librement congurs et rparties sur plusieurs niveaux. Un atout supplmentaire se cache derrire la fonction de mise jour utile qui peut facilement transformer la passerelle en un combin 4x de IPTV avec intergiciel et VOD intgr.

Antenne parabolique

Antenne offset SK60-PWT19 de SVEC


SK6 0-PWT19 OFFSET DISH OF SVEC Two -way mountable dish with exc ellent performanc e

10-1 1/2010

Tournez votre antenne lenvers

Ceux qui vivent en basse et moyenne latitudes ont tendance croire quune antenne offset possde toujours sons bras support de tte (LNB) en bas du recteur. Mais est-ce vraiment un must pour installer une antenne de telle faon? Quen est-il de placer le bras au-dessus de lassiette? Eh bien, il nya aucune rgle interdisant cela, mais pour des raisons pratiques, cela a plus de sens pour les satellites avec altitude assez basse (infrieure 30).Cette faon adapte permet au recteur dtre le plus vertical possible pour empcher la pluie, la neige et la poussire de se xer.
Lassiette de SVEC monte
sens dessus-dessous : Le mt unique de montage de SVEC permet la parabole dtre mont en inverse. Ceci est suggr pour les zones plus proches des rgions polaires, ce qui signie pour ces zones que llvation du satellite dsir varie de 0 40 degrs. Une autre utilisation est, dans divers situations, par exemple, sur un balcon encombr, avoir le bras au-dessus du recteur peut tre la solution pour viter un montage du bras au-dessous du recteur qui serait inadquat.

24 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

Une antenne offset reoit des signaux de satellite non pas perpendiculairement la surface du recteur, mais un angle de 25 environ. Cela signie que pour recevoir un satellite une lvation de 25, le recteur est positionn verticalement. Si llvation est infrieure, le recteur doit tre pouss vers le sol ce qui peut sembler comme quelque chose de bizarre avec notre assiette. Pourquoi ne pas la tourner sens dessus dessous de sorte que le bras support de tte (LNB) est au dessus du recteur? Cest exactement ce que SVEC a fait de son antenne offset SK60-PWT19 60 cm de la bande Ku ! SVEC nous a expdi un colis en carton o sont soigneusement emballs deux kits de SK60-PWT19.Tout tait en parfait tat. Nous avons t ravis de constater que cette parabole est livre avec des schmas de montage et une liste de pices qui est trs utile dans le procd de montage. Chaque partie du kit tait trs bien conue et a correspondu toutes les autres parties sans aucun problme. Le montage tait plus quamusant. Si vous avez dj un mat vertical o placer lassiette, il vous suft dutiliser une cl de 10 mm et un tournevis cruciforme. Puisque lajustement des deux angles dazimut et dlvation dpend de deux crous pour chacun, il est assurment facile faire pivoter et incliner lassiette en douceur. La SK60-PWT19 ne glisse pas le long du mat mme si vous desserrer trop les 2 crous de la bride du mat. Il ya une autre longue tige lete qui traverse la partie suprieure des supports du mat (bride) et maintiendra lassiette par ce long boulon. Cette tige lete est laxe du mcanisme de rglage

de llvation. Dans certains cas, cela pourrait tre un dsavantage, car lassiette doit se poser sur le sommet du mat. Donc, si vous prvoyez dutiliser le mme mat pour une antenne satellite avec une antenne terrestre, vous devriez y rflchir ca. Gnralement, lantenne parabolique est monte vers le bas et lantenne terrestre yagi au dessus pour minimiser limpact du vent sur le poteau. Les schmas de montage qui accompagnaient lantenne indiquaient deux faons de montage. La faon habituelle avec le bras LNB en dessous du rflecteur (altitudes 30-90) et la faon inverse avec le bras au-dessus du rflecteur (altitudes 0-40). Vous pouvez voir les deux variantes sur les photos. Le montage du sens dessus-dessous semble un peu bizarre, mais tout fonctionne bien en supposant que votre lvation du satellite est dans la plage 0-40. Il est encore plus raisonnable dutiliser la faon traditionnelle pour les satellites entre 30-40 parce que le rflecteur est plus verticale - Donc, il ya moins de risque de collecter la pluie, la neige ou de la poussire au dessus. Toutefois, si vous voulez attirer la curiosit de vos voisins, le montage invers peut tre votre choix. SVEC vous offre plus dune assiette complte. Il y a un mat supplmentaire pli avec la base que vous pouvez utiliser pour fixer tout le montage, soit au mur, ou sur le toit. La chose intressante cest quil ne ncessite pas dtre mont sur une surface verticale ou horizontale. Vous avez un ajustement doux de 0 90 de sorte que vous pouvez utiliser toute surface qui est assez solide pour devenir le socle de lantenne. Dans notre test nous avons utilis lun de nos mats vertical existants. Nous avons dabord mesur une antenne offset de 60 cm dun concurrent

La face avant se compose de deux connecteurs F, cran LCD avec rtro-clairage et dun clavier quatre boutons. Il ya un couvercle en plastique qui est attach au panneau frontal. Le compteur est bien protg contre les gouttes de pluie en cas dutilisation en plein air. Le connecteur de sortie F qui ne sera probablement pas trs souvent utilis est protg par un capuchon en caoutchouc. La pluie na aucune chance de pntrer lintrieur de linstrument. Un autre ceinture de protection contre un environnement hostile, cest lattach case en nylon. Il possde une poche pratique sur le ct et un guide de dmarrage rapide dans la face interne du volet. Les ouvertures velcro vous permettent de connecter les cbles sans avoir retirer

Le HD-S2 est le successeur du HDSM USB PLUS. - Lappareil de mesure de signal satellite que TELE-satellite a prsent dans le numro 10-11/2007. A cette poque, le compteur ntait pas compatible avec DVB-S2. Mais maintenant,il lest bien sr! Et ce nest pas la seule amlioration qu Horizon a introduit dans leur nouveau compteur. Nous aborderons les nouveauts plus tard dans le rapport mais dabord nous tenons souligner que les caractristiques les plus importantes de ce compteur - cest sa facilit dutilisation, qui a t prserve. Nous pourrions rpter le titre du rapport dans lequel nous avions dcrit son prdcesseur: mme un analphabte ni peut lutiliser , et ceci demeure toujours vrai
Comme avec tous les autres compteurs de HORIZON, lorsque le HD-S2 est livr, sa batterie interne doit tre recharge pendant environ 8 heures. Lalimentation est intgre de sorte quil vous suft seulement de relier le cble secteur inclus pour recharger la batterie interne. Vous pouvez galement utiliser le chargeur DC de vhicule pour complter la charge. Une fois compltement charge, il fonctionne pendant plus de 8 heures puissance maximale. Ceci est possible grce la nouvelle batterie en Lithium-Polymre (Li-Po). La batterie est accessible travers un volet douverture sur la face infrieure du

le compteur du compartiment. La sangle du cou avec longueur rglable permet de librer vos deux mains pour manipuler une antenne parabolique.

Utilisation
Si vous tes familier avec tout autre type de compteur - satellite, cble ou terrestre, de Horizon, vous navez vraiment pas besoin de beaucoup de temps pour apprendre faire fonctionner leur nouveau HD-S2. La che du haut vous emmne au menu de conguration et la che bas pour le fonctionnement rgulier. Les touches haut/bas permettent de drouler le menu et ceux de gauche/droite pour slectionner les options/valeurs des items du menu. Il ya douze lments de menu dans le menu de conguration: Rtroclairage (on/off), tonalit (on/ off), Luminosit dimage (0 ... 15), Contraste (0 ... 50), Sleep (1 ... 30 minutes ou toujours on), langue (Anglais, Franais, Indonsien, Espagnol, Italien,

Allemand, Nerlandais, Polonais, Sudois, Danois, Norvgien, Croate), les units de puissance RF (dBV / dBm / dBmV), la tension de la tte (LNB) (zro ou 13/18V), par dfaut, Azimut (Mag/Vrai), version du rmware et une liste des villes Europennes.

Le dernier lment ncessite quelques explications. Le Horizon HD-S2 permet de calculer llvation de lantenne parabolique et lazimuth de tout satellite donn. Pour lutiliser, vous devez slectionner votre emplacement. Loption de menu Villes Eur permet dindiquer

quelle rgion doit tre charge. Le choix dune ville proche de votre position acclre le processus. Selon votre choix, lazimut de lantenne sera calcul en fonction, soit du ple gographique ou magntique. Quand tout est congur selon nos prfrences, nous pouvons sortir du menu de conguration en teignant lappareil de mesure. Maintenant, nous pouvons relier la sortie de la tte (LNB) au connecteur dentre sur le panneau frontal du HD-S2 et mettre lappareil de mesure en marche avec le bouton che de bas. Aprs lcran daccueil, le compteur afche lcran de recherche de signal, en haut, Il ya un nom du satellite et audessous, une barre graph de puissance du signal et la valeur de puissance en dBV du canal (sinon les autres units introduites dans le menu de conguration). Avec les ches gauche/ droite, vous pouvez changer le satellite et une fois le satellite qui vous intresse est afch, cest le moment de commencer tourner lassiette. En tournant la parabole, vous ntes pas oblig de regarder lcran du HD-S2 car il gnre des bips. Ils changent de tonalit et taux de rptition en fonction de lintensit du signal. Cest trs facile dtecter la position correcte de lassiette juste en coutant les bips. Ds que le compteur se verrouille sur le signal reu, Le

symbole de cadenas est afch sur lcran comme verrouill et une barre supplmentaire est afche. Elle prsente la Modulation Error Ratio (MER). Sa valeur en dB est indique juste en dessous de la barre. Le MER est mesur avec une rsolution de 0,1 dB, ce qui est plus que sufsant pour aligner avec prcision une assiette. Toutefois, Horizon fait un pas de plus. Aprs avoir appuy sur le bouton che bas, nous pouvons voir un zoom (agrandissement) dafchage de la

puissance du signal et du MER. Les lectures sont encore plus sensibles aux changements de position de lantenne quauparavant. Une autre pression de la che du bas et nous pouvons observer le Bit Error Rate (BER) pour le signal DVB-S ou le Derived Bit Error Rate (DER) pour le DVB-S2. Si cela ne suft pas, nous pouvons laisser lcran de recherche de signal (Avec le bouton che du haut), et slectionnez llment du

spectre dans le menu principal. Le Horizon HD-S2 nous indiquera ensuite une partie du spectre avec la chane sous test au centre de lcran. Au-dessus du spectre, un certain nombre de paramtres est prsent de faon alterne: frquence centrale, la dure de la frquence, la polarisation de la tte (LNB) et la prsence de signal de 22 Khz. Dans des conditions de faible niveau de signal, nous devrions utiliser les lments du menu voisin: Le spectre avec un symbole dune loupe.

Un autre lment intressant, du menu quon peut voir est la constellation. Comme vous pouvez vous attendre, il afche le diagramme de constellation de signal (QPSK, 8PSK ou APSK - en fonction du signal). En outre, LCD afche la frquence du signal, le dbit de symboles, modulation, FEC, swap de IQ et la prsence de drivers (pilotes) (DVB-S2). La liste par dfaut du HD-S2 de notre chantillon de test contient 20 rpteurs des 13 plus populaires satellites Europens. Les units expdies dautres rgions, afcheront les satellites populaires, respectifs, bien sur. La page web de Horizon www. horizonhge.com contient une sous-page de tlchargement pour le HD-S2, partir de laquelle, des listes propres chaque pays peuvent tre tlcharges, dans le futur. Toutefois, si vous ntes pas satisfaits de leur liste, vous pouvez aussi crer votre propre liste. Il ya quatre rpteurs DVB-S spcial utilisateurs et quatre autres DVB-S2 galement, que lutilisateur peut lui-mme programmer. Ils sont accessibles partir du menu Personnalis. Vous dnissez ici tous les paramtres ncessaires: frquence LOF, le signal des 22 kHz, la frquence du transpondeur, le dbit symbole, FEC (peut tre laiss indni = Auto), la tension de la tte (LNB), swap IQ et les pilotes (pour le DVB-S2 seulement; peuvent tre laisss en auto). Une caractristique importante de lappareil est sa capacit envoyer des commandes DiSEqC. Le HD-S2 est compatible avec DiSEqC 1.0 et 1.1. Dans un menu spar ditems, vous pouvez slectionner un de 2 satellites, un de 4 satellites ou un de 16 satellites. En outre, le Horizon HD-S2 peut envoyer des commandes appropries pour commander des systmes double corne sur lesquels vous ne choisissez pas seulement lun des deux satellites, mais aussi la sousbande et la polarisation. Malheureusement, vous ne pouvez pas utiliser le HD-S2 pour le contrle des moteurs DiSEqC. Si vous pensez que cela est tout ce que peut-vous offrir le HD-S2, vous avez tort. Par exemple, il existe des lments particuliers du menu spcialement ddis pour tester lInternet par satellite,

le service ASTRA2Connect qui recherche les rpteurs ddis ce service. Une autre fonction plutt inhabituelle concerne les mesures de dviation de la tte (LNB) qui peuvent tre utilises par exemple pour vrier si la dviation de LOF est la cause de perte du signal dans un systme de rception. En outre, le HD-S2 peut mme tester un cble de la tte pour les circuits ouverts ou en court circuit. Enn, on peut enregistrer les rsultats de mesure dans la mmoire interne. En utilisant lapplication pour PC, de lecture du journal, tlchargeable du site Web de Horizon vous pouvez consulter les rsultats stocks ainsi que leur transfert du HD-S2 vers votre PC dans un format de chier ASCII. Dautres fonctions exotiques comme le test de sortie SCR et la fonction histogramme seront disponible par tlchargement de la page Web de Horizon. Ils largissent la polyvalence de lappareil pour les vrais spcialistes. Une alimentation de 21 V de la tte (LNB) est ncessaire pour le SCR (Single Cable Router) et le HD-S2 na aucun problme avec cela. Il possde un lment particulier du menu : LNB 21 V

toujours, donnant des lectures superbes. Toutefois, si vous utilisez lappareil pour le pointage dantenne - Ce qui est aprs tout, sa fonction principale - le HD-S2 donne des chiffres prcis pour linstallation. Vous rglerez toujours vos systmes de rception pour une intensit et une qualit maximale du signal. Avec un compteur, le maximum a un MER = 11,5 dB et pour lautre,

il est un Mer = 15 dB. Mais vous obtenez le maximum la mme position exactement de lassiette. Le plus important est que le compteur ragit trs vite: la fois pour le verrouillage du signal lorsque vous tournez lassiette et en afchant les changements de qualit du signal lorsque vous lafner. En outre, les lectures MER sont assez stables si lantenne nest pas en mouvement. Ces caractristiques sont, pour un expriment, plus importantes que la prcision absolue.

Leger, compact et appareil facile utiliser pour mesure de signal lors de pointage dassiette. Sac Pratique. Trs bonne batterie. De nombreuses fonctionnalits exceptionnelles dans un instrument simple en apparence. Verrouillage et raction rapide aux changements du signal. Trs bonne batterie.

En Europe, probablement les plus populaires ttes (LNBF) monobloc sont faites avec espacement de 6. Et un peu moins populaires, sont les ttes (LNBF) avec 3 despacement. Mais que faire si vous souhaitez recevoir 2 satellites qui sont spars de 4,3 Comme ASTRA 19,2 Est et ASTRA 23,5 Est? Ni les 6, ou le 3 degr LNBF monobloc ne feront laffaire. Heureusement, certains fabricants ont remarqu le besoin du march et ont dvelopp les 4,3 monoblocs. Lun de ces fabricants qui suivent le march est Jiuzhou, une socit bien connue des lecteurs de Tl-satellite. Il ya quelque temps, nous avons test leur monobloc de 6 (TELEsatellite 06-07/2008).

ladaptateur. De cette faon, nous avons cr un serrage supplmentaire et de ce fait, avons cart le risque de voir le monobloc changer de position subitement. Le premier test que nous avons effectu, tait de comparer les performances de la tte QUAD de Jiuzhou avec notre tte (LNBF) de rfrence. Cette dernire tait une tte universelle monobloc unique faible bruit avec un espacement de 4,3 (NF = 0,2 dB). Nous avons utilis une assiette offset de 85x80 cm avec rapport f/D de 0,6. Les deux ttes la fois, celle du foyer et celle hors centre ont t mesures et compares entre eux. Si vous examinez les gures 1 4, vous remarquerez que la JQB4P Quad gnre seulement une sortie lgrement infrieure lappareil unique. A lextrmit suprieure de la bande Ku, elle tait mme meilleure que notre rfrence. Nous pouvons dire que le niveau de sortie de la JQB4P est assez fort pour une capacit basse et moyenne de rseaux de distribution. Pour les congurations dantenne avec des cbles trs longs uniquement, vous devriez envisager dajouter des amplicateurs. Et que dire de la performance de bruit? Es-ce le dispositif quad peut galer la performance dun monobloc unique? Les rsultats des mesures sont prsents dans les gures 5 8. La performance de la JQB4P est trs bonne, pratiquement la mme que notre rfrence. Habituellement, un dispositif quad a des rsultats de MER moins bon quun seul dispositif, mais pas dans ce cas. Seulement pour la polarisation verticale du centre de la tte (LNB) que nous pouvons observer une performance lgrement moins bonne. Les signaux polariss horizontalement sont bien traits de la mme faon que dans la tte unique de rfrence. Nous avons eu des rsultats encore meilleurs avec la tte hors centre. Ici, la JQB4P est meilleure pour la polarisation verticale et pratiquement la mme pour celle de lhorizontale. La prochaine chose que nous avons voulu tester concernait lgalit entre les quatre sorties de la JQB4P. Figures 9 12 donnent un aperu: il ny a pratiquement aucune diffrence entre les quatre sorties. Surtout que les rsultats MER sont presque identiques. Cela signie quaucune des quatre voies du signal nest suprieure ou infrieure par rapport aux autres. Cela aurait pu tre la n de notre essai, mais nous avons dcid de vrier quelque chose de plus. Il ya toujours un autre satellite qui possde un cart angulaire similaire dAstra3 23,5. Nous voulons dire Astra2 sur 28,2 E. La diffrence nest pas 4,3, mais 4,7, mais sait-on jamais, peuttre quil sera possible dutiliser la JQB4P pour cette paire de satellites? Nous avons repositionn le monobloc dans le support de sorte que maintenant la tte hors-centre soit sur le cot oppos et avons vri le signal. A notre grand plaisir, notre compteur afcha immdiatement un smiley (moticon) vert qui signie que la rception est possible. Pour les comparer, nous avons pris

une autre srie de mesures - Voir les gures 13 et 14. Un examen attentif montre quil ya une perte de qualit du signal par rapport la rception de satellite avec lespacement de 4,3. Vous pouvez avoir des problmes pour la rception de certains transpondeurs, surtout par mauvais temps. Cependant, les transpondeurs puissants doivent tre toujours recevables. Et noubliez pas que cette application nest pas destine pour ce dispositif. Nous lavons ajout pour satisfaire notre (et le vtre je lespre) curiosit. Donc, la meilleure faon est dutiliser la JQB4P pour lespacement de 4,3 selon sa spcication. Vous serez satisfaits avec les rsultats. Recevoir 2 satellites espacs par 4,7 est encore possible, mais tous les transpondeurs ne sont pas garantis par mauvais temps Pour une telle utilisation non standard, vous pouvez envisager dutiliser la JQB4P mont sur une petite assiette, par exemple, 75x70 cm. Dans ce cas, son offset LNB devrait idalement correspondre 4,7 despacement entre satellite.

1. Un compteur dtecte un alignement parfait pour 2 satellites. Le monobloc JQB4P est utilis pour la rception dASTRA 1 (19.2 E) avec Astra 3 (23.5 E) - 4,3 despacement. 2. Le monobloc peut tre utilis avec succs pour une autre paire de satellites : ASTRA 3 (23.5 E) et Astra 2 (28.2 E) 4,7 despacement. Maintenant, notre appareil dtecte aussi trs bien, lintensit et la qualit du signal

DOEBIS, Grossiste-distributeur de rcepteur satellite, Allemagne

DOEBIS sagrandit
Il ya trois ans, prcisment, Tl-satellite a publi un reportage sur DOEBIS, un grossiste distributeur de rcepteur satellite en Allemagne. Nous avons pens que ctait le bon moment pour demander DOEBIS comment ils ont pu rsister la crise tout autour. Nous avons reu une rponse plutt surprenante: Nous sommes en pleine expansion dclare Rainer Werking, Directeur des oprations chez DOEBIS. Lentreprise sest servie de la crise conomique qui sest produite en 2008 et, au lieu de rduire leur capacit, ils ont opt pour une stratgie de contre attaque: ils ont profit de loccasion pour investir et surtout largir leur force de vente.

Directeur des

oprations M. Rainer Werking dans son bureau. Avec ses bras puissants, il continue propulser la socit vers lavant. Et bien sr, il vient rcemment de remporter le premier prix au lancer du poids avec les seniors Allemand!

Claus Ruebesam est le responsable du service

client et technique. Ici, il fait la dmonstration du rcepteur TVHD HDCI 2010, lun des rcepteurs JAEGER de DOEBIS, avec lequel DOEBIS veut augmenter les chiffres de vente.

Wolfgang Paum a t le directeur des grands comptes depuis la n de 2009. Il stait familiaris avec lindustrie du satellite depuis les dbuts. Il se souvient: Mon premier rcepteur est un MASPRO. Ctait en 1988 et depuis lors, 56

il a occup divers postes dans lindustrie du satellite. Son travail DOEBIS tait de relancer lquipe de vente de grand compte En ce moment nous avons 10 employs dans notre quipe de vente pour grer le nombre important des demandes de clients sur une base quo-

tidienne, relate Wolfgang Paum sur ses activits. Cette grande mobilisation de lquipe des ventes a port ses fruits: Nous nous attendons voir une augmentation des ventes de 25% pour 2010,explique

TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

Rainer Werking tout en jetant un regard sur les chiffres de vente, Et pour 2011, nous envisageons une autre augmentation de 10% Ceux sont l dexcellents rsultats de vente et Wolfgang Paum explique la raison cela: Nous avons ajout deux noms de grandes marques notre assortiment: TOPFIELD pour le segment haut de gamme et STRONG pour le segment moyen. DOEBIS informe rapidement ses clients sur ces deux nouveaux noms et a donc ralis de trs bons rsultats de vente. Mais DOEBIS ne vend pas aux utilisateurs naux, alors, qui sont donc, les clients de DOEBIS ? Les principaux clients de DOEBIS appartiennent toujours la catgorie des spcialistes et des installations, relate Wolfgang Paum. Les nouvelles activits de lquipe des

grands comptes ont t largies pour inclure les livreurs par commande classique sur catalogue via email ainsi que les revendeurs locaux et internationaux en ligne. Une attention trs particulire est accorde galement la forte demande de ces clients. Rainer Werking nous donne un bref aperu sur la conguration gographique: 75% de notre volume seffectuent dans les pays parlant Allemand, tandis que 25% partent ltranger. Ces pourcentages sont en fait les mmes quil ya trois ans quand nous avons au tout dbut parl de DOEBIS (TELE-satellite 10-11/2007). En comparant les chiffres dil y a trois ans, nous avons remarqu une autre chose : La distribution des produits a demeur peu prs la mme chose,

galement, dclare Rainer Werking, 70% sont des rcepteurs, 10% de tte (LNB ) et 5% danalyseurs de signaux . Pour le long terme, DOEBIS sattend un recul du nombre de rcepteurs, en particulier les rcepteurs SD qui sont moins chers. Pour cette raison, DOEBIS est la recherche de nouveaux marchs. Nous misons sur la qualit et les nouvelles technologies , dit Rainer Werking en expliquant leur stratgie de diversication. En ce qui concerne les rcepteurs HD, Rainer Werking a une petite surprise pour nous: Nous avons dvelopp notre propre marque de rcepteur ! DOEBIS a rcemment commenc commercialiser sa propre gamme de rcepteurs sous lappellation JAEGER. Cette ligne est le fruit de plusieurs suggestions des clients. Avec

Une vue de lentrept assez

grand de DOEBIS. La socit est bien situe au centre du pays et peut livrer de la mme manire aux clients dans le nord que ceux dans le sud de lAllemagne ainsi que tous les pays voisins.

le JAEGER HDCI 2010, nous offrons un rcepteur haute dnition en DVB-S2 et MPEG4 , explique Rainer Werking, Un autre modle est le JAEGER HD + 2011. Ces deux rcepteurs sont disponibles ds maintenant; un troisime modle sera mis sur le march au moment de la publication de cette revue ; Le rcepteur JAEGER HD + 2011 CI +. TELE-satellite a programm un rapport de test sur ce modle dans un prochain numro. Nos modles JAEGER sont assembls en Allemagne, rvle Rainer Werking. Le directeur des grands comptes, Wolfgang Paum continue, Pour 2010, nous prvoyons que les ventes des box JAEGER se situent autour de 5%; Pour 2011, nous prvoyons une augmentation de 10%. Au moyen terme, nous pensons que la ligne de rcepteur JAEGER fournira 20% environ des ventes de rcepteur DOEBIS . Puisque nous tions sur le sujet de rcepteur, nous avons voulu savoir quelles sont les diffrentes plages que

vous pourriez recevoir avec les rcepteurs DOEBIS. La rponse tait sur les lvres de Rainer Werking : En 2010, 65% des rcepteurs sont livrs avec tuners satellite, 10% avec des tuners terrestres et 25% avec tuners pour cble. En 2011, nous prvoyons une augmentation de 30 % des tuners pour cble et une baisse de 8% pour les rcepteurs terrestres et 62% pour les rcepteurs satellite. Les responsables de DOEBIS simpatientent pour 2012: Le dernier des transpondeurs de tlvision analogique sera dsactiv, forant des millions de tlspectateurs de passer des rcepteurs numriques, commente Rainer Werking, Dici l, notre entrept sera plein de rcepteurs numriques. Si vous jetez un coup dil sur la gamme de produits DOEBIS, vous verrez quelle est compose de produits de haute qualit provenant de grands noms de ce business. Il nest pas surprenant de voir que DOEBIS offre galement des ttes (LNB) bre optique. Dj 5% de nos commerants

clients ont opt uniquement pour la tte (LNB) bre optique , rvle Rainer Werking, Pour 2011, nous prvoyons que ce nombre augmentera 10%., Il se pourrait que ca ncessite encore plus de temps, mais le moment viendra o uniquement la tte (LNB) bre optique sera vendue. Ces ttes (LNB) peuvent tre coteuses, mais elles sont beaucoup plus meilleures et peuvent tre utilises dans nimporte quelle application. conrme Rainer Werking. TELE-satellite rejoint cette impression sans quivoque. Cest gnralement les premiers oiseaux qui fraient un chemin que tous les autres doivent ventuellement suivre. DOEBIS est certainement lun de ces oiseaux de premire heure, Ils voient ces nouvelles possibilits et ne les ratent pas. DOEBIS est prsent depuis 22 ans et au cours de cette priode, il a connu tous les hauts et les bas dans lindustrie du satellite mais a pu russir dans la croissance. Cest cela que ressemble le succs!

SmartWi la conqute du march des fournisseurs


Les lecteurs de cette revue ont t familiariss avec SmartWi, le fabricant de lecteurs de cartes depuis des annes. Dans ldition 06-07/2007 de TELE-satellite, nous avons publi le premier rapport sur cette socit Danoise qui a mis au point une clbre ide: Que diriez-vous de la transmission de donnes de la carte dabonnement payante dun fournisseur de tlvision une deuxime carte dans le mme foyer? Tout dun coup le plaisir de regarder la tlvision peut tre apprci du salon jusqu la chambre coucher, la salle de sjour ou toute autre pice de votre maison.

Kurt Olesen est le cerveau derrire SmartWi. Il a cr la socit en 2005 et quand on lui a rendu visite pour la premire fois en 2007, il tait emport par une gigantesque vague de succs. 60.000 produits SmartWi ont t vendus en 2007, mais les chiffres de ventes ont progressivement diminu dans les annes suivantes. En 2010, nous allons vendre environ 35000 appareils SmartWi. Cependant, Kurt Olesen a une vision extrmement rassurante sur lavenir - Et pour cause: Aux environs de la date de publication du prsent numro de Tlsatellite et lexposition IBC, nous allons lancer la deuxime gnration SmartWi, explique Kurt Olesen et nous montre rement le nouveau modle SmartWi. Il fonctionne de la mme manire que la premire gnration, poursuit-il. Les clients nont qu insrer la carte TV payante dans lunit et sont alors en mesure de regarder la tlvision payante sur un second tlviseur en utilisant une carte supplmentaire qui est connect

lappareil principal via des ondes radio. Le nouveau SmartWi a fait un bond en avant qui peut tre clairement vu mme dailleurs. Le ls de Kurt Olesen, Jens Glad est responsable de la technologie et du design au sein de lentreprise et a dni le style lgant de lappareil. Alors que la premire gnration sentait une connaissance informatique, le nouveau SmartWi bncie dun design russi qui nattend que dtre prsent avec ert, plutt que de le cacher loin derrire larmoire. Cest un bijou de style et peut facilement faire envier la dame de la maison galement - Donc, ne vous attendez pas encore des objections contre un autre gadget technique. Il y va sans dire que le style ne doit pas dans ce cas. Il suft dcouter Jens Glad qui numre toutes les innovations qui ont t introduites lintrieur: La chose principale est le processeur plus rapide et la mmoire du nouveau programme, qui a doubl en

capacit par rapport la version prcdente. Cela rend la deuxime gnration SmartWi beaucoup plus rapide et beaucoup plus sensible. Mais il ya plus: Lantenne intgre est maintenant dispose dans un emplacement qui permet de la faire coulisser tout le long du ct longitudinal de lappareil, ce qui fournit rellement des capacits de retransmission nettement meilleures par rapport lancienne disposition, explique Jens. Une autre caractristique trs intressante est la deuxime fente de carte dans le box. Le nouveau SmartWi dispose du hardware ncessaire pour lutilisation de deux cartes puce en mme temps, selon Jens Olesen. Les modles qui sont actuellement expdis, ne sont pas activs pour une utilisation double carte, mais une mise jour de logiciels, dbloquera cette fonctionnalit prochainement. Les produits de SmartWi de la premire gnration taient principalement vendus au client nal, et Kurt Olesen est dtermin entrer sur un ter-

Cest dans ce sens que nous avons chang la conception et opt pour le noir, ajoute Jens Glad, qui est responsable de cette dcision. Avec la nouvelle conception, les fournisseurs de contenu seront en mesure doffrir le SmartWi sous leur propre marque. Inci-

Connaissez-vous vraiment quelquun avec un seul poste de tlvision? Kurt Olesen veut savoir. Pourtant, la plupart des fournisseurs laissent ces clients dans le noir, soit parce quils les obligent commander une deuxime

Si, dautre part, les fournisseurs dcident soit doffrir directement le SmartWi leurs abonns ou au moins de le proposer ofciellement sous forme de licence, chaque abonn sera en mesure dutiliser son deuxime ou troisime tl dune manire lgale, de plus la porte du SmartWi sans ls ne couvre seulement quune seule maison. De cette de manire, les fournisseurs de contenu nont pas craindre le partage de cartes illgales, puisque ce nest pas possible initialement avec le systme SmartWi. Kurt Olesen est absolument convaincu que les fournisseurs de contenu pourraient toucher un nouveau march important. Dautre part, il est galement conscient dun dilemme sousjacent: Les techniciens de socits prestataires sont gnralement rceptifs pour le SmartWi, mais les services de marketing - Qui ne peuvent sen soucier davantage de la technologie - ne saisissent tout simplement pas limportance de notre produit.

Dans un coin de lextrme sud-ouest de lAllemagne, Juste sur le lac de Constance, se trouve la petite ville de Singen, qui abrite le sige de SPAUN depuis plus de 40 ans. Toute lexprience acquise au cours des dcennies de connaissances technologiques a t toujours mise au service pour une fabrication de produits encore plus performants. Aujourdhui, la marque SPAUN est une appellation qui signie des produits de haute qualit et innovateurs dans le segment des satellites et au-del. Cela a conduit SPAUN, il ya quelques annes, de proposer une offre de garantie totale de 5 ans pour ses produits. Au cours de toutes ces annes, Le fondateur de Spaun Friedrich Spaun et son ls Kevin, qui ont pris en charge la gestion de la socit entre-temps, ont remarqu une chose. Chaque fois quun appareil tait envoy pour rparation, le seul composant qui tombe en panne, est dans la plupart des cas, le bloc dalimentation, rvle Kevin Spaun . Et en fait, ce diagnostic est vrai pour presque tous les appareils lectroniques. Les condensateurs lectrolytiques dans ces dispositifs sont gnralement les causes des pannes. Sur le march il ya un certain nombre de condensateurs lectrolytiques avec des dures de vie diffrentes. Les modles moins coteux sont conus pour une dure de vie totale de 3000 heures de fonctionnement, tandis que les plus sophistiques

peuvent durer 10.000 heures et plus. Evidemment, les condensateurs lectrolytiques ne tombent pas en panne subitement aprs les 3000 ou 10.000 heures - La dure de vie dun produit donn se rfre une moyenne des heures, releve lors dun fonctionnement une temprature maximale et une puissance maximale dlivre. Comme ces conditions extrmes ne se produisent que dans de rares cas, les condensateurs dpassent gnralement, de loin ces heures de fonctionnement prescrites. Comme la plupart des fabricants dappareils lectroniques, SPAUN tait habitu sapprovisionner en modules dalimentation chez des fournisseurs tiers. Aprs tout, une socit produisant des multi-switch ne devrait pas se concentrer sur des modules dalimentation, non? Eh bien, si le principe directeur demeure la qualit et vous allongez la garantie 5 ans sur tous vos produits, votre attention doit englober chaque composant individuellement. Au dbut, nous avons demand notre fournisseur de nutiliser que des condensateurs lectrolytiques de qualit suprieure seulement se souvient Kevin Spaun. Mais la n de la journe, mme cette exigence ntait pas sufsante pour garantir la qualit que SPAUN a exig. En plus de la qualit et la abilit, un fabricant

haut de gamme doit galement se pencher sur lefcacit nergtique, et ainsi SPAUN sest rendu compte nalement que son cahier des charges pour les fabricants sous-traitants de modules dalimentation est rendu si complexe et exigeant quil est devenu plus que raliste de prvoir une production interne de ces composants. Les fabricants indpendants doivent toujours trouver un quilibre entre le cot et la qualit des composants en vue de proposer un rapport de cout concurrentiel. Si nous, dun autre cot, produisons tous nous-mmes, nous avons lensemble du processus sous notre propre contrle et sommes en mesure de choisir chaque composant individuel de sorte que le produit nal rpond nos exigences rigoureuses. Cest le seul moyen datteindre la qualit que nous voulons. Une fois cette dcision avait t prise tout est all trs vite: SPAUN Power GmbH a t cr comme nouvelle socit et un nouveau atelier de production a t install ainsi. Nous avons investi 2 millions deuros, environ , explique Kevin Spaun, tout en nous indiquant les nouvelles installations de production tout autour. La nouvelle socit a t mise sur pied et oprationnelle depuis maintenant deux ans. Nous sommes en mesure de produire environ 500.000 units dalimentation par an, poursuit-il. Avec ce nombre dunits, nous ne sommes pas seulement en mesure dquiper lensemble 69

Un prsentoir dans la zone


de rception montre une gamme de produits SPAUN. La socit ne produit pas seulement des modules dalimentation dcoupage,

mais aussi toutes sortes de multi-switch ainsi que des switch DiSEqC et pices pour la distribution de signaux, y compris les metteurs et rcepteurs fibre optique.

de nos propres produits, mais galement de fournir des socits tierces. En fait, plus de 10% de la production annuelle sont vendus dautres compagnies qui ont pris conscience que le cot initial, plus lev pour les modules dalimentation dcoupage de haute qualit, est plus que compens par une dure de vie prolonge sur le long terme. Kevin Spaun donne plus de dtails sur son argumentation: La qualit lemporte toujours. Mme si cela peut sembler judicieux, en premier temps, et partir dun point de vue purement financier, dutiliser des composants moins coteux, qui permettent den bnficier tous le monde, mais disparat lorsque les composants tombent en panne aprs une courte priode seulement. Choisir la qualit suprieure tout juste au dbut se rvle tre une dcision beaucoup plus sage. Cela revt une importance particulire pour les produits qui ont un cycle de vie durable pour de nombreuses annes. Nous fournissons nos produits pour les systmes de distribution de signaux des htels ou des grands immeubles rsidentiels, poursuit-il. Certains de ces endroits ont plusieurs milliers dutilisateurs et lquipement lectronique doit fonctionner de faon fiable pendant des annes voire des dcennies, sans dfaillance. Une entreprise telle que SPAUN ne peut atteindre cet objectif de qualit quavec des produits haut de gamme. Si les blocs dalimentation demands pour atteindre cet objectif, ne sont pas disponibles sur le march, alors SPAUN doit y faire face en procdant la production interne. Pourtant, la qualit nest pas le seul attribut qui a conduit SPAUN mettre en place une unit de fabrication interne du bloc dalimentation. Nos blocs dalimentation dcoupage consomment jusqu 25% moins dnergie que les composants classiques. Un lment qui ne devrait pas tre sous-estim cet gard, est le fait que la plupart des produits SPAUN sont allums tout le temps et donc ncessitent constamment lnergie lectrique. Aprs tout, un multi-switch ou un amplificateur doit tre en marche et disponible tout moment. Il y va sans dire que les multi-switch de SPAUN ont t quips dun mode veille pour conomie dnergie depuis des annes, mais des conomies dnergie supplmentaires prs de 30% sont un norme avantage, mme dans ces cas de figures. Trs franchement, nos nouveaux blocs dalimentation se remboursent deux-mmes, dclare Kevin Spaun et explique les calculs. Les factures dlectricit des utilisateurs seront infrieurs chaque mois et tous nos blocs dalimentation sont conus pour fonctionner avec toute tension comprise entre 100 et 240 V, ce qui les rend vritablement universelle, il ajoute en donnant une ide sur le potentiel des produits SPAUN destins aux entreprises en dehors de lEurope. Actuellement SPAUN POWER emploie trois ingnieurs hautement spcialiss et dans un proche avenir nous allons lancer une gamme de modules dalimentation dcoupage pour fournir la tension aux LEDs. Nous prvoyons que ceci sera donnera une forte croissance du march dans lavenir. Naturellement, nous sommes galement en mesure dutiliser notre

TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

longue exprience pour le dveloppement et la fabrication de solutions spcifiques au client. Le nouveau bloc dalimentation dcoupage non seulement consomme moins dnergie, mais aussi utilise cette dernire beaucoup plus avec efficacit quauparavant. Nous travaillons pour atteindre un facteur defficacit au del de 90%, dclare firement Kevin Spaun. Enfin, Kevin Spaun donne des claircissements sur une stratgie trs avantageuse pour allonger la dure de vie des modules dalimentation SPAUN. Nous concevons gnralement le bloc dalimentation pour nos produits de sorte quils fonctionnent environ 60% de leur capacit. En se fixant en dessous de ce seuil, cela rduit considrablement le risque de panne lors dune utilisation permanente. SPAUN a appris toutes les ficelles du commerce pendant ses quatre dcennies en tant que fabricant de premier rang de produits de haute qualit. La dcision de produire galement des blocs dalimentation localement est une tape supplmentaire dans loptimisation de la chane entire de lindustrie manufacturire et amliorer encore davantage la qualit suprieure et fiable des produits de lentreprise. Cest extraordinaire de constater quune stricte attention sur la qualit mne au succs du long terme et cest rjouissant de voir que lattention principale sur les prix, ce qui semble assez rpandue de nos jours, nest pas toujours la bonne voie un succs durable.

Lalimentation dcoupage (SMPS) convertit la tension dalimentation (110240V, 50/60 Hz) en courant continu basse tension qui est ncessaire pour les appareils lectroniques de tous genres (tlviseurs, rcepteurs satellite, ordinateurs portables, multiswitch etc .. ). La tension continue (DC) est stabilise, ce qui signifie que cela ne change pas que lon consomme plus ou moins de courant de la SMPS. Les anciens modles dunits dalimentation (dite unit dalimentation linaire ) ncessitent un grand et lourd transformateur qui convertit la haute tension alternative vers une basse tension alternative avec un rgulateur de tension fix sur un radiateur (dissipateur thermique) pour stabiliser la tension DC. Rguler la tension DC en mode linaire conduit des pertes de puissance importantes ce qui gnre une chaleur indsirablen, do la ncessit dun dissipateur thermique. La SMPS convertis tout dabord, la tension alternative vers une tension continue, ensuite cr des coupures on/off (marche/arrt) une haute frquence (50 kHz 1 MHz) ce qui produit une forme donde rectangulaire. Habituellement, un transformateur est toujours ncessaire, mais cette fois-ci, il est beaucoup plus petit car plus la frquence est haute, plus le transformateur requis est petit pour y faire face. Le transistor de rgulation avec un grand dissipateur thermique nest plus ncessaire car la tension est rgule en changeant la frquence des oscillations on/off. La SMPS est donc beaucoup plus compacte et lgre et elle est aussi plus conome en nergie. Ce sont ses principaux avantages. Elle est aussi plus sophistique quune alimentation linaire traditionnelle.Malgr cela, les SMPS sont utilises presque exclusivement dans les quipements lectroniques daujourdhui.

COMPANY REPORT

Satellite Distributor SMART INNOVATIONS, The Netherlands

The AZBox Champions from Holland


It really helps to not only have a good product but to also have a very ambitious sales team. A perfect example of this is the company Smart Innovations in northeastern Holland. The three owners of the company are very much involved with its operation and have helped make the AZBox receivers one of the top selling brands not only in The Netherlands but also in Belgium and Luxemburg. For these three countries, Smart Innovations has taken over distribution of the AZBox.

Zutphen (Amsterdam)

At the moment, Smart Innovations still resides


in one of the apartments in this house in the town of Zutphen in northeastern Holland. The move to a new ofce is coming very soon.

78

TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

The three-man company currently resides in a residential area in the small town of Zutphen, not too far from Apeldoorn and roughly 100 km from Amsterdam. At the moment the warehouse is in the founders garage but this wont be the case much longer. The company will shortly move to a larger building which will include a warehouse. We found out how it all started from Herbert Verheijden; hes really the founder of Smart Innovations. I started the company in 2005, he explains to us. Hes been involved with satellite reception since 1995. My first receiver was the PACE 500 G4. Back then it was one of the first digital receivers available, he remembers. His first satellite dish was 80cm in diameter. He is a software engineer by trade and thus was especially interested in digital signal modulation technology. Via the Internet it didnt take long for him to find people with similar interests with which he could exchange ideas. We still use the www.sat4all.com Satellite Bulletin Board today to communicate with our customers, explains Herbert Verheijden. He met Andr Pelgrim

through this satellite board and found out that he didnt live all too far away from him and was therefore able to meet up with him in person on many occasions. Over the years the two of them worked closer and closer together. The third member of the team is Rinus Lindoorn. Hes the founder and chairman of the De Transponder satellite club which provides extensive information for satellite enthusiasts via its web site www.detransponder.nl. In 2007 the three of them became equal partners in Smart Innovations with each owning exactly one third of the company. Their jobs are all very clearly defined: Herbert Verheijden is responsible for the companys vision, Andre Pelgrim handles the technical side of operations while Rinus Lindoorn watches over the small companys finances. All three of them have a dedication to satellite technology and above all the AZBox. Herbert Verheijden explains how the connection to the AZBox came about: We met Hugo Condessa, the head of

AZBox, at ANGA 2005 and learned about his products. We recognized right away that his boxes were ideal for our market because of its quality and price. The Smart Innovations team immediately began translating the receiver manuals, receiver menus and promotional materials into Dutch. We also started our own support forum at www.azbox.nl, adds Herbert Verheijden. The start of the company didnt go all too smoothly at first: In our first year 2007 we managed to sell only 500 receivers and our second year 2008 wasnt much better, explains Rinus Lindoorn, responsible for the financial side of things. The three agree that the main reason for this weak beginning was that AZBox only offered SD receivers at the time. In 2009 however, sales increased dramatically: In 2009 we sold 1400 high definition receivers and in 2010 we expect that number to climb to 3000, Rinus Lindoorn says confidently. The increase in sales is also due to some other factors. Rinus Lindoorn regularly visits the dealers in Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg to highlight the advantages of the AZBox:

The smart idea from Smart Innovations: they are working on a box to convert Infrared to Bluetooth.
This would make it possible to control the AZBox and a state-of-the-art TV system from a single remote control.

antennas with a total of 31 LNBs plus one LNB on a rotary dish. As it turned out, the AZBox had a software bug in its DiSEqC control that allowed the receiver to access 30 LNBs without any problems, just not the last 2 LNBs. They would never have found out about unique problems such as this if they didnt make themselves available to answer everyones questions. At the moment Smart Innovations wholesale dealer network is made up of 25 active dealers in The Netherlands, ve in Belgium and one in Luxembourg. We want to know what sales are like for the individual AZBox receiver models; Rinus Lindoorn looks at his books and says: The AZBox Premium Plus makes up 50% of our sales, the Premium model accounts for 30% while the Elite box makes up for 20%. Those are all high denition models. The actual tuner selection is rather interesting: 60% of AZBox receivers are delivered with satellite tuners, 30% come with combination satellite and cable tuners and the remaining 10% are strictly cable boxes. We noticed that terrestrial tuners are not in the mix at all. Rinus Lindoorn conrms, Theres hardly any demand for terrestrial reception in Holland. When the subject turned to the future, Andr Pelgrim nally had the opportunity to present a surprisingly new idea: The AZBox is the only receiver with a real 1080-line picture and therefore is the perfect match for top-of-the-line TVs. What conclusion can be drawn from this? One of the absolute best brand names available is, for example, Bang & Olufsen. But when you check out the remote control, you nd out that it operates via Bluetooth while the AZBox works with Infrared. The trio has thus come up with an interesting idea: and that would be to work with a supplier of converters on a box that could convert Infrared to Bluetooth. In this way were trying to make the AZBox recognizable with high-end TVs. Smart Innovations is making quite a name for itself. All three business partners are satellite enthusiasts who are intimately familiar with the AZBoxs every detail. They keep coming up with new ideas to make the AZBox even more popular. With such a dedicated sales team AZBox should continue to move upward in the marketplace!

Rinus Lindoorn is responsible Andr Pelgrim is


responsible for the technical side of things. for the nancial side of Smart Innovations.

I visit roughly 30 rms every year, he explains. The other two colleagues dont sit idly around either; they are actively promoting the AZBox in satellite forums as well as in their own support forum. We quickly answer every question we receive, comments Herbert Verheijden adding that the customer is never alone. The three of them actually enjoy answering questions. We are regularly surprised ourselves! For example, recently a customer told us that he has 32 LNBs but could only access 30 of them. A satellite viewer with 32 LNBs? That was new to them. Sure enough, satellite enthusiast Gerard van den Braak in Eindhoven has two multifocus

Satellite Footprints

Satbeams A Website for Professionals

Alexander Derjugin has set some lofty goals for himself. He is the founder and operator of the satbeams.com website the main purpose of which is to reach the professionals. Thats a rather ambitious goal so we wanted to find out from him personally how he intends to reach it. We met up with him in Brussels, Belgium, the city he calls home.
First we wanted to know how satellite reception came into his life. He explains, Im originally from Moscow. I worked there as an IT manager for a big Fast Moving Consumer Goods company. The company transferred me with my family to their European headquarters in Brussels back in 2001. There Alexander Derjugin started to work as an IT consultant in the area of web infrastructure. In 2003 his department was outsourced to another big international company providing global IT services he continues to work as a Managed Web Service consultant. Working in another country is a big challenge and it was very important for Alexander to setup his first satellite dish to receive Russian programs! If we couldnt receive Russian TV, my wife would be very upset and we would just pack and go back to Moscow, jokes Alexander Derjugin. As it turns out, he has his wife to thank for getting his start

in satellite reception. My first satellite system consisted of an 80cm antenna that I used back then to receive SIRIUS at 4.8 east and HOTBIRD at 13 east, he explains. Not long after that, he expanded his system to 100cm. Meanwhile, Alexander Derjugin wanted to learn more about this mysterious technology. As his colleagues and friends also learned of his interest they began asking him more and more questions related to satellite reception. One thing led to another and he eventually became a satellite specialist. As Alexander worked most of the time with web technologies, he one day came across the idea to combine satellite footprints with Google Maps. That was back

charts by any eld like language or band. All of the data is linked together and you can reach almost any information with just 2-3 clicks of the mouse. Alexander is constantly thinking about how he can make his website even more user-friendly. But above all I want to reach out to professionals and implement additional features that would be useful for them. For example satellite providers would be interested to know if their footprint overlaps with footprints of other satellites. So Alexander is thinking of the best way to overlay multiple footprints on the worlds map which would make it easy to see what satellites cover the same area. He sees the future of Satbeams with specialised applications. Interested companies could license the footprint data from me, says Alexander Derjugin, with the monthly licensing fee the footprint updates are locked in. What kind of companies could use his services? First and foremost would be Internet-via-Satellite providers, comments Alexander Derjugin, Satbeams rst customers came from this sector. The footprint data would also be interesting for uplink stations, for satellite providers and also for SNG operators who need to nd the proper footprint for their VSAT systems. Alexander Derjugin discovered an interesting market segment with Satbeams. A website geared specically towards the satellite professionals seems to be a very good idea!

An example from the satbeams.com website: the footprint of EUROBIRD 9A is projected online
onto Google Maps. You can zoom into and out of the map with the footprints matching each individual map. Satbeams has created an electronic version of the footprint of every satellite. Professional users can license the data and then use the data on their own website.

in 2006 and after few months of hesitation he decided to implement this idea. In the Fall of 2007 I contracted several talented programmers who helped me develop the necessary software as well as electronically convert the satellite footprints, he explains. In the middle of 2008 the web site went online with its rst version. Initially, Alexander wanted to use the domain name satcoverage but a friend suggested that satbeams would be better. That name is short, easy to remember and gets right to the point, he says. At rst Alexander Derjugin wanted to gear his website more

towards satellite DXers, in other words towards hobbyists. He implemented the solution that satellite DXers could click on their location via Google Maps and then enter in realistic reception results. But he wasnt satised with the results and decided to redesign the website. In July 2009 the new version of Satbeams went live. Now almost every satellite footprint from around the world was digitized and could be projected onto Google Maps. Dozens of volunteers help me keep all of the satellite data up-to-date, he says. So in addition to satellite technical details and footprints all of the associated transponder data is also displayed. Now hes in the process of making his website more user-friendly. I am focused on usability to improve the user experience, he explains, you can search by channel name or your address and lter the

This is what the home of Alexander Derjugin looks like. A Channelmaster 120cm antenna with a C-band and Ku-band LNB can be seen all the way to

DXer REPORT

Satellite DXer Pepsi from Chengdu, China

Pepsis Dishes

106 TELE-satellite Global Digital TV Magazine 10-1 1/2010 www.TELE-satellite.com

Satellite DXers are a rather new species in China. One of the select few is Pepsi in the city of Mengyang of Sichuan province in south-western China. Why would anybody choose the nickname Pepsi, you may ask? Well, thats not difcult to guess: Pepsi used to work for the company by the same name.
Where does the DXer live? Easy to guess, its
the building on which antennas can even be seen from the street below. Pepsis apartment is in this mixed residential and business block, because here he can freely install antennas on the roof.

He has since moved on and now holds a technicians positions at a local packaging company, even though he still sticks to his nickname. We meet Pepsi for lunch at a typical restaurant in his hometown and he tells us how it all began: I started out in 2004 with a 1.5 m dish which I used to pick up signals from ASIASAT 3 at 105.5 East. It was technology rather than content that got him hooked on this hobby. I hardly ever watch TV, Pepsi admits, its rather the challenge of trying to receive even more satellites that keeps me going. This enthusiasm led to an increasing number of satellite dishes over the years. Next to several small dishes with diameters ranging from 45 to 90 cm Pepsi also uses 1.8 and 2.4 m antennas. With great expectations and anticipation we take the trip to Pepsis place in a residential area of the city of Mengyang, some 40 km north of the capital of Sichuan province. Pepsis apartment is located on the second oor of the building and it becomes evident right upon entering that watching TV is not exactly Pepsis favourite pastime. Only one TV set can be seen in the living room, but a total of six receivers. Pepsi loves the technical aspects of satellite television, yet could hardly care less about what kind of content is transmitted. All of his antennas are mounted on the roof of the buildings staircase. Here they dont get in the way of anybody, and nobody gets in my way, Pepsi explains. As a matter of fact, he purposely moved into this area so that he would be able to pursuit his hobby without restrictions. Where I used to live before it was not possible to install large antennas, says Pepsi. It was my hobby that made me move to Mengyang. Talk about commitment! Pepsi even spends his spare time helping other people install their satellite dishes and he has become a well-established satellite expert even beyond his city. Eventually, his hobby might turn into his profession one day. I am currently working on larger projects too, which involve supplying several apartments

MUSEUM REPORT

Radiomuseum Ringsted, Denmark

A Satellite Experts Museum


Alexander Wiese
Over the course of many years satellite expert Bjarne Nielsen has worked up his reputation as Denmarks Mr. Satellite. In retirement now, he has found a new passion in his position as organiser of and driving force behind the Radiomuseum in the small town of Ringsted, not far from the Danish capital Copenhagen. In a TELE-satellite exclusive Bjarne Nielsen opens the museum doors and recalls major events that shaped his life.
Lets start with a remarkable fact: For 15 years Bjarne Nielsen was the publisher and editor-in-chief of Denmarks rst and only satellite-related magazine, with the last issue having appeared in the year 2005. I published a total of 165 issues, Bjarne Nielsen recalls. Each magazine issue featured a test report and a company report, as well as an up-to-date frequency chart. A peak circulation of 4000 was printed in 2000 in the heyday of Bjarnes magazine, but towards 2005 this number had declined to 1400 copies. At the same time the Danish postal service decided to increase postage fees with the result that the whole magazine operation had become uneconomical. What made Bjarne Nielsen create and publish a satellite magazine in the rst place? In 1966 he had began to work as a teacher at the Ringsted technical vocational school, covering the elds of TV and radio engineering well... what else? One of his students made a career as service manager for Swedish company LUXOR in Motala, which in 1980 was in the process of developing its rst satellite receiver. At the time, satellite receivers usually came from the United States. Bjarne Nielsen managed to obtain satellite reception equipment from LUXOR and in 1982 I was able for the very rst time to watch satellite television thanks to a 2-metre dish, he remembers. I picked up Russian

Ringsted (Copenhagen)

TV from GORIZONT, transmitted in the 4 GHz range. Half a year later LUXOR invited him to its Motala headquarters and it was there that Bjarne Nielsen was able to see signals from OTS, the rst European broadcasting satellite, with the help of a huge 3-metre antenna. All his efforts were focused on setting up a dish of his own and by the end of 1983 a 1.8-metre antenna had become an addition to his house to receivee CS1 at 13 east. In case youre still in doubt, were dealing with a serious case of satellite virus infection here, and in his role as a vocational teacher

Bjarne Nielsen took his chances and raised his students interest for this new technology as well. However, it didnt stop there. Danish companies dealing with satellite products were quick to see the potential of this dedicated teacher and asked him to organise technical seminars for engineers and installers. In 1984 and 1985 I held lots of 3-day seminars to teach more than 1000 professional installers how to set up satellite antennas, Bjarne Nielsen proudly states. His school supported these activities as well, as they were counted as part of the teaching process. This eventually led to the establishment of a satellite magazine in 1990. My school was the official publisher and I was only the editor, he recalls laughingly because nonetheless, all of his free time was put into the magazine.

We even went so far as to stage our own satellite fair at the school, he adds. It took place in 1990 and we were proud to showcase virtually all Danish satellite companies. The fair was repeated one more time, but as it was only successful from a technical point of view rather than from a financial aspect, it unfortunately had to be stopped after only two events. Lets move on to an altogether different stage now and find out what in the world made Bjarne Nielsen run his own museum? By my very nature as a teacher I was in touch with hundreds of young people, all of whom knew that I collected old TV and radio sets. Time and again they would come to school with a disused device, and I was all the more happy for it. In all those years he never had to actually buy a radio or TV, each single one was donated. In 1998 Bjarne Nielsen came up with the idea of displaying all those marvellous wonders of technology in a dedicated museum, and in 2000 he was able to make that dream a reality. The Radiomuseum Ringsted was ready to open its doors! The building hosting the museum was made available by the municipality of Ringsted and lots of locals offered a helping hand to adapt the place for its new use as a museum.

1. Celebrating 110 years: An EDISON phonograph dating back to the year 1900 is one of the collections highlights. This system uses a wax cylinder to record sound. 2. As early as 1936 company AEG invented a tape recorder. The Radiomuseum features a unit that was manufactured in 1938. 3. The BEOCORD from the year 1948 used steel wire rather than magnetic tape to record voices. 2.2 km of steel wire are wound up on a single roll. The wire is led through the device with a speed of 50 cm per second, which means 2.2 km of wire provide a recording time of one hour, Bjarne Nielsen explains. By the way, Danish inventor Valdemar Poulson had this system patented in 1898. At the time, however, the available technology was not ready for real-world implementation. For this you need amplifying which became available only with the invention of tubes.

(the year of birth of Bjarne) it feels like time travel. Thats the way the pop stars of the time sang their songs on stage.

Some 500 items are on display here, Bjarne Nielsen explains and directs our attention to a breathtaking range of TV and radio sets. But the real surprise is yet to come: What you can see here is just 10% of what I have collected a total of 5000 items are stored in a repository. Now this is quite a revelation where could Bjarne Nielsen possibly store so many items? Were wasting our breath here: In my old school, from which I retired five years ago. Much of the basement there is used up by my TVs and radios, he says and smiles. Indeed, Bjarne Nielsen has collected an almost unbelievable range of different apparatus, and what makes his collection even more unique is the unexpected number of products made by Danish companies. These days only few people are aware that Denmark used to boast a significant TV and radio industry in the past, because today hardly any of these companies are still in business. Enthusiasm and commitment dont diminish with age, and Bjarne Nielsen is perfect proof of that. He has even started to publish a new magazine, only that this time it deals with historic TV and radio sets. Some may think of anybody with such a passion for old technology as an idiot, and Bjarne Nielsen happily picked up this notion for the title of his magazine. While he could not quite get himself to call it radio idiots, he went for Radioten instead. A community of radiots is in the making and Bjarne Nielsen gets together with like-minded enthusiasts on a regular basis to restore old devices. With a well of personal knowledge and expertise available with his co-collectors and with the help of measurement devices from all times, the results of such restorations are nothing short of impressive. One of the unique aspects of the Radiomuseum is its technical capability to copy

1. This portable radio is impressive proof of the state of technology 75 years ago. It was produced in 1935 and had to do without transistors and microchips of any kind. 2. Danish company RUHE produced this TV set (right) in the year 1950. In 1949 first test broadcasts were transmitted from Copenhagen and these sets were made specifically for receiving these signals. The official launch of TV in Denmark took place in 1951, Bjarne Nielsen tells us. And what has seemingly fallen out of the TV to the left? Thats the remote control, he replies. What today is a standard feature for home entertainment devices was a genuine sensation at the time. Of course a remote control in the 1950s was not wireless but rather attached to the main set with a long cable, yet even an early model such as that came with two buttons. One might wonder what the remote control was used for back then. Surely it was for switching channels, right? Are you kidding? Bjarne answers. There was only one channel available in the first years of television. One button was for adjusting volume, the other for brightness. In a time and age with virtually thousands of satellite channels at your fingertips isnt it hard to imagine a time when you had no choice at all?

old video and audio tapes and save them on present-day storage media. We have at hand video recorders for all systems that have ever been on the market, and naturally we keep theses systems operational at all times. Even ancient steel tapes can be played back which comes as a genuine surprise. Steel tape was the predecessor of magnetic tape and was used in the 1940s and 1950s. Time and again audio and video tapes from decades ago pop up and the Radiomuseum is the place to go for playing back or copying their often valuable content. This can be particularly interesting if the tapes include recordings of company assemblies, for instance, and in some cases such historic content may even have legal ramications. In cases like this the Radiomuseum even bridges an existing market gap, as there are hardly any ofcial institutions that keep age-old technology up and running the way Bjarne Nielsen does. In a time and age in which modern satellite receivers are discarded after only a few years of use only to be replaced with yet another new device, a visit to the Radiomuseum in Ringsted is a step back in time. Modern technology is put in perspective when you wander past a sheer endless number of old devices, some of which still working after 100 years if maintained and serviced properly. Bjarne Nielsen and his helpers denitely know how to do just that. His Radiomuseum is well worth a visit. More information: www.rfr.dk

1. Bjarne Nielsen uses the museums basement to keep all types of video recorders up and running. All systems are perfectly maintained and can be used at the touch of a button. Bring us any kind of old video recording and well be able to copy the content on DVD, he proudly says. 2. A rare sight: Bjarne Nielsens fully functional steel tape recorder is a genuine marvel. Even today it can be used to play back steel tape rolls that are 50 years old (like the one he holds in his hands), and to copy them onto present-day storage media. 3. The basement of the vocational school he used to teach at is a maze that serves as storage area for the Ringsted Radiomuseum. Close to 5000 radio and TV sets stand side by side, including the rst HDTV set made in Europe, which used the D2-MAC standard at the time. While this transmission standard is long gone, the TV set remains a reminder of technical innovation in days gone by. 4. Of course, old satellite technology is a given for Bjarne Nielsen too. Here he is seen next to an old presentation antenna made by TRIAX, with the TRIASAT 2000 analogue receiver from 1990 in his hand.

GERMANY OVER 1 MILLION CARDS SHIPPED FOR HD+
In the German market, HD+, the high denition services platform, has enjoyed considerable success, with over 1 million smart cards now already shipped to equipment manufacturers. With a broad range of some 20 HD+ set top box models available, the offer can also be accessed with other receivers via a CI+ module, of which over 100,000 have been sold. SES Astra is managing the HD+ platform for commercial HD broadcasting in Germany.

Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSB) revenues increased 6.1% to US$ 43.9 million in its 2010 second quarter ending in June. TSB said its revenues have been driven by the continued growth of its HDTV services in the Nordic region, as well as price increases for service delivery. Following the launch of the Thor 6 satellite last year, the operator is likely to announce a followup satellite in the near future due to better than expected take-up of capacity on Thor 6.

SAMSUNG DSR 9000 FTA
In the search for a digital FTA receiver that is loaded with features but is easy to use, the TELE-satellite International test group stumbled onto the SAMSUNG DSR9000 FTA. One of the requirements of this search was the automatic downloading of software updates via satellite. Receiver software is constantly being improved or updated and not every digital receiver owner has the ability to use a PC to upgrade the receivers software via the serial interface. Samsungs receivers are distributed worldwide and thus software upgrades are made available through various satellites around the world. In central Europe, the ASTRA satellite at 19.2 East can be used for this service. The silver colored chassis and the overall design of this receiver gives the impression that this is an expensive box. The four-digit display shows one of the 2000 possible channels and it can easily be seen even in bright sunlight. A round ring-button lets you change channels and adjust the volume without having to use the remote control. The backside of the box is also nicely laid out. The IF signal is looped-through allowing an additional receiver (analog) to be connected. Two Scart connectors let you connect the box to a TV and a VCR. Audio and video outputs are also available via three RCA jacks. These could be used to connect additional equipment such as a TV projector. The serial interface can be used to upload new software into the receiver if for some reason it were not possible to do this via satellite. Terrestrial antenna signals are also looped-through and the onboard modulator (PAL B/G, I, K in our test model) operates in the entire UHF range. The remote control sits comfortably in your hand with all functions clearly marked thus reducing the likelihood of pressing the wrong button. The rst thing the receiver will do after it has been properly set up and congured for the existing antenna will be to look for new software. If a new update is available, it will just take a few minutes to complete the download. The actual installation of the receiver is extremely simple. It must be pointed out that - aside from the easy-to-understand menus - this receiver also has excellent graphics in its On-Screen display. As a worldwide receiver, the DSR9000 FTA offers six different languages for its menus, EPG and soundtrack. If you happen to be using a Solarsat antenna (test report in TELE-satellite International 10-11/2000), you will nd a special calculation program in the menu. After the antenna and LNB parameters are stored, the active satellites can simply be selected. The integrated DiSEqC 1.2 allows the use of more than one LNB or can be used to drive an appropriate motor. The automatic search function scans all of the

desired satellites (up to 16) in one shot. Only about seven minutes was needed for the Scan function to handle 80 transponders. If necessary the PIDs for video, audio and PCR can be manually entered. Its even possible to connect the receiver to a SMATV system. Once programmed, specic channels can be stored in three different priority lists. Considering that this is a digital receiver, switching between channels is actually quite fast, on average about 1/2 second. Unfortunately, this still does not make for very good Zapping, but even if you were to try, you wouldnt have to worry about any unexpected system hang-ups. In our tests, critical C-Band signals (1.9 Ms/ sec) were easily handled without any loss of signal even though, according to the manufacturer, the box can handle 2-45 Ms/sec. The Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is very nicely laid out. Here you can display current and future programming information. When switching between channels, a small transparent program information bar appears near the bottom of the screen providing channel name and current program data. A simple push of a button selects the proper soundtrack. The DSR9000 FTA is also Teletext compatible. Switching over to radio mode can

easily be done with the remote control. Program information will then appear on the screen and will also include an attractive background. The EPG can also be accessed in this mode. Unfortunately, the DSR9000 FTA does not have a digital audio output. While we were conducting our tests, new software version 105 became available and was uploaded into the box via satellite. Several bugs that were in version 100 were xed and there were also obvious improvements with Skyplex signal reception. With the DSR9000 FTA, Samsung has developed a truly user-friendly and easy-to-use receiver that is an excellent choice for anyone not interested in receiving Pay TV signals. Clean graphics and menus that are self-explanatory leave behind a lasting favorable impression. Once the box was upgraded to version 105, there were no more lock-ups. Switching channels was better than average and the automatic scan function works quite fast. The receiver comes with a comprehensive user manual. If it were up to us, we would have liked to see a digital audio output and perhaps even a third Scart connector. The good local service provided by the regional importer is also a plus worth mentioning.

MediaCom FTA-Gold

In our unceasing hunt for an easy-to-use free-toair (FTA) receiver with sufficient channel memory, C- and Ku-band compatibility, single and multi channel per carrier (SCPC/MCPC) capability and the ability to control a mechanical C/Ku polarizer, we came across the MediaCom FTA Gold. Free-to-air means that we need not waste any time looking for some CI module slots to allow the reception of PAY-TV. The dark and stylish front panel includes a light green display showing the selected channel number. The FTA Gold has more than sufficient storage capacity with a 3000 channel memory for TV and an additional 2000 channel memory for digital satellite radio. Six unpretentious keys allow operating the receiver without the remote. On the back panel the first feature that catches the attention are the quick-clamps for connecting a mechanical polarizer. This is very important for combined C and Ku-band reception. The receiver also allows for the standard configuration with 13/17 Volt switching of the polarization angles The IF from the antenna can be looped through and thus made available to an additional receiver. Unfortunately the two-scart solution seems to have won over most manufacturers of digital satellite receivers, including MediaCom for the FTA Gold. Analog stereo is output from two RCA connections and an additional connection delivers the video signal. A programmable 0/12 Volt output is available for external switches. The serial interface is designed to permit upgrading the operating software, but it could just as well be used to copy the SatcoDX channel information into the box. Unfortunately the receiver we tested was not yet SatcoDX compatible. A terrestrial TV signal is looped through and an UHF modulator can be tuned over the complete UHF range. All PAL modes and NTSC are supported. The remote control deserves special praise. The buttons are clearly labelled and the layout is very logical. With a touch of a button the screen image can be frozen which is a useful feature. First of all the language of the on-screen display (OSD) menu can be selected from five available languages, including Arabic. The OSD can be changed into transparent mode in five steps and the time-outs for the graphics can be individually set. The brightness of the video is also adjustable in five steps. The FTA Gold is pre-set for almost all satellites around the world. All that is left to do is set up the local oscillator frequencies (LOF) for one or several LNBs. Ten sets of values are already stored in the software but of course the parameters can also be freely selected. The various LNBs and the corresponding dish motor are controlled with DiSEqC 1.2. The search function can be performed either in normal mode (to find all signals) or in FTA mode, where only clear or unencrypted signals will be found. After the initial scan, any time later you can use the update function to scan all transponders for new signals without overwriting pre-existing

and unchanged channels. The receiver takes eight minutes to search an 80-transponder satellite. The graphic design of the search menu is particularly good. Individual transponders can be searched for channels using the manual search mode. It is also possible to key in the PID parameters manually. After a complete scan there are usually some channels to be deleted, moved or added to the favourite list. It is also possible to lock certain channels. The editing menu displays the channel being edited in a small window on the screen and lists all technical specifications at the same time. All these features are very easy to use. In addition, there is an on-screen keyboard which can be used to name and rename the channels. Of course the same facility is available for all radio stations that have been found in the search. Once the receiver is set up and programmed, switching between channels takes 1.2 seconds, which is not very fast. It has to be mentioned in that context, however, that some delays are caused by the broadcaster having changed the packet information data (PID). This means that the receiver has to detect the correct parameters first from the data stream. When changing channels the most significant data about the channel (if provided) and the time are on shown screen for a few seconds. The FEC, polarization and PID data are also shown. Certain channels can be added to the favourites list and can then be accessed quickly by pressing a corresponding button on the remote. There is a sleep mode, which can set to shut down the receiver after a period of time for all those day or night couch potatoes. The MediaCom FTA Gold deserves our Global Approval without any qualifications. Features like mechanical polarizer control, SCPC compatibility, global satellite memory and C/Ku-band reception make it a really universal box. At the same time it is easy to use and has a very well designed on-screen menu plus online help. It is an ideal FTA receiver for the whole family because everybody will be able to use it. The handbook explains all steps of the installation and operation in an easy-to-understand way. During the extended testing there were no system crashes. Unfortunately this is still not always the case when talking about digital receivers.

The modulator operates in all the different PAL formats across the entire UHF range. In NTSC mode, the modulator switches over to channel 3 or 4. The serial interface allows new software and updated program data (SatcoDX compatibility coming soon) to be uploaded. When the box is first placed into service, you will be prompted to select a language to be used for the On-Screen display (OSD) and the audio sub-carrier. From English to German, Farsi, Arabic and even Russian, most of the important languages are available. An extra special feature is the integrated PAL/ NTSC converter. Depending on the TV being used, PAL, NTSC or AUTO can be selected. The colors of the OSD can be set for two individual users. The European version of this receiver is pre-programmed with 13 satellites with room for 10 more. up to block specific programs from a particular age group. In our test, a 12 year old managed to find his way to an inappropriate channel in just four minutes. The Sat Cruiser DSR-301CI from ATM is a solid, easy-to-use family receiver able to receive free (FTA) and Pay TV (all known CI systems) signals. But this box even has something to offer to more knowledgeable users with its manual PID entry and its symbolrate automation. It is a little weak at the knees with its 1000 channels; a little more would have been better. The user-manual serves as an excellent guide during the installation and using it on a daily basis is nothing more than childs play. Thanks to the regional pre-programming, the NTSC/PAL selection, the language choices and the universal power supply, the DSR-301CI is truly useable worldwide.

AMT Sat Cruiser DSR-301CI

The situation with channel scanning in the satellite TV world is not entirely unknown: you have the frequency, but all the other data is missing. The FEC and Symbolrate values are not always available in the charts, especially when it involves a brand new feed-signal. Even the best satellite receiver doesnt provide much help here. The only solution would seem to be a receivers Band-Scan function. Unfortunately, this isnt all that much fun, since this type of scan could take the entire night and by then that feed has already disappeared. But with the new Sat Cruiser DSR-301CI from AMT, search technology has taken a giant step forward. In a special menu, all you need to do is enter the frequency of the signal - nothing else is needed.

After only a few minutes all possible symbolrates have been scanned and even the FEC values are under control. The result is a new, unlisted channel. This is an important feature that deserved to be highlighted right from the start. This receiver is designed to be used as an FTA/CI unit. With the right CI module and appropriate card, this box can be used for Pay TV reception. Otherwise, it will work just fine as an FTA receiver. One drawback: only a meager 1000 channels are available. Since this box is DiSEqC compatible, multiple LNBs or antennas can be connected. It wont be long before you run out of memory space. The nicely shaped, silver-colored cabinet has two flaps on the front panel that hide the CI slots and the auxiliary control buttons. These buttons can be used to program the box if the remote control decides it doesnt want to play anymore. The green four-digit display shows the current channel. The backside of the unit is fitted with all the usual standard equipment. The IF is looped-through and two Scart connectors together with three RCA jacks link the receiver to external audio/video equipment. A fourth RCA jack provides the controlled 0/12 volt output.

The LNBs are matched with the proper local oscillator frequencies (LOFs). The receivers menu has the universal and standard values already pre-programmed into the box. Other LOF values can be manually entered. The subsequent scan of an 80-transponder system lasted only seven minutes. The scan can be set up to search for FTA-only or All channels. Individual transponders can likewise be activated. If it becomes necessary to enter in PID data manually, a corresponding menu is available. At this point the enormously helpful automatic symbolrate search function is certainly worth mentioning again. The Sat Cruiser accepts symbolrates anywhere between 2 and 45 Ms/sec and was even able to work with a 1.8 Ms/sec signal (SCPC) with no difficulty. The DSR-301CI is packed with a very powerful editing function. Programs can be quickly and easily moved, deleted or even temporarily blocked. Priority channels can be quickly stored in a special list. An integrated typewriter lets you add names to stored channels and satellites. With a 0.7 second channel switching time, this receiver is one of the faster ones. Holding down the channel selection button does not seem to bother the Sat Cruiser as it does not seek revenge by locking-up on you. To prevent the DSR-301CI from being improperly used by the younger generation, the box can be set

ATTISAT Satellite Systems

In 1997 satellite communication specialists and investors met in Athens. One side brought with them a concept and the other brought the necessary solutions to make the project a reality. The goal was the design, the production and the distribution of a flat antenna. At first this doesnt sound like anything special since similar antennas already exist on the market. What appeals to the investors is the plan to create a product independant of subcontractors. Likewise with manufacturing technology, they also wanted to go there own way. Almost every production machine and test station should be their own design. This is a further step towards independance. With the product came the thought that the antenna should not be re-invented, instead it should stand out from the rest of the field through first class quality and design flexibility induced by customer suggestions. The flat antennas that are currently available have problems with both their life-expectancy - they are not always weather-proof - and with uniform gain across the entire Ku-Band. Specialists and Investors joined forces and the result was the formation of the internationally reknowned company ATTISAT Satellite Systems. They are strategically located between the city center and the airport in Athens where the Flat antenna is produced. Over three years have passed since this company was formed. Their antenna has gained recognition in the market and the plan is to ramp up production to about 200,000 per year. The investors, who have thus far contributed nearly 1,000,000 Euros to this effort, have not regretted their decision. In a modern building, the FL 500 is manually assembled using a cleverly designed system. Through the use of special markings on each piece, mistakes

have been virtually eliminated. At the end of the production line, every antenna must undergo a thorough test. Various satellites from around the world can be simulated with signal generators. If an antenna does not perform as expected, it is removed, dismantled and analysed to determine why so that the same fault does not occur again in the future. Team spirit among the employees is a major reason why they can ship a quality product. None of them have an 8 to 5 job, instead, the hours they work

are based on the daily requirments. Delivery problems have been for the most part eliminated. ATTISAT is also involved in the developement of V-Sat systems, the manufacture of microwave devices and the developement and production of RX/TX outdoor systems for Internet/Multimedia via satellite. They also have their own R&D (Research and Development) department whose function is to handle developement contracts from customers in the Satcom industry.
