Our FTA digital headend enables the LCO to preserve their investment in MPEG2-only set top boxes by transcoding the newer H.264-only satellite programming into MPEG2

Exhibiting at the 24th Annual SCaT India show in Mumbai this week, MultiVirt India Pvt Ltd announces the availability of a new, low-cost Free-To-Air (FTA) headend solution that supports over 70 digital channels. Powered by VideoPropulsion® (OTC:VPTV) high-density transcoders and encrypting QAM technologies, the new low-cost headend represents a significant breakthrough in providing cost-effective solutions designed specifically for local cable operators (LCO) in India.

The MultiVirt FTA headend utilizes reliable Hewlett-Packard (HP) servers and VideoPropulsion MPEG stream processing modules. The FTA headend is capable of selectively receiving over 70 channels of H.264 programming via DVB-S2 satellite, transcoding from H.264 to MPEG2, encrypting the programs, then multiplexes and modulates for output over QAM on a COAX network for delivery to DVB-C standard set top boxes (STB). The appliance uses common, off-the-shelf DVB-S2 receiver cards and VideoPropulsion’s XC10 MPEG transcoder card and the company’s QN12LPe QAM modulator card that is DVB-C (ITU-T J.83 Annex A) compliant. The QAM card also provides encryption/scrambling of all services so they are compatible with the LCO’s chosen DVB-CI. The solution is in compliance with India’s digital television mandates.

“In just a few short months using VideoPropulsion’s technology, we have architected a very reliable and cost-effective FTA headend solution to address the needs of the LCO”, said Rakesh Gupta, Founder & Director at MultiVirt. “Our FTA digital headend enables the LCO to preserve their investment in MPEG2-only set top boxes by transcoding the newer H.264-only satellite programming into MPEG2”.
