TDcH Compact Headend 22STC-I

TDcH Compact Headend with CI Interfaces

DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T, DVB-T2 and DVB-C conversion to QAM or COFDM (switchable) with the possibility to decrypt services centrally in the headend.
Built for both wall mounting and 19” racks and equipped with 4 DVB-S/S2 inputs, 1 DVB-T/T2/C input, 16 DVB-S2X tuners, 6 DVB-T/T2/C tuners, 16 QAM or COFDM (switchable) modulators and 8 CI slots.
The TDcH compact headend is optimised and engineered to meet specific TV distribution requirements in hospitality, multi-dwelling units and related sectors with an appealing, competitive cost per service ratio.
Our brand new, intuitive platform smoothly integrates easy installation, an elegant graphical user interface, central decryption, remote access, and straightforward TV service updates with LCN.
