TV Distribution (DTH)atrexx offers access to digital TV platforms on Europe's hottest Direct to Home (DTH) satellites. The common ground for these TV platforms is in the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB-S) technology over satellite.
The teleports which atrexx manages, serve, among others, the DTH positions 13° East (Eutelsat HOT BIRD™) and 19.2° (ASTRA) . This allows to reach an installed base of some 50 million households in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Due to the high power of these DTH satellites and the standardized Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) transmission scheme, an ubiquitious DVB set-top box and a small satellite dish is all what is required at the viewer's site.MPEG-2 data reduction and signal multiplexing at the teleport allows 8-10 TV channels to be transmitted in excellent quality over one satellite transponder of 36 MHz bandwidth. With MCPC (Multi Channel per Carrier) on DVB, atrexx offers the most popular method of Satellite Direct-to-Home (DTH) Broadcasting.
The atrexx turnkey solution allows either playout at the teleport, signal pick-up from different satellites, contribution via satellite or via backhaul services. The digital signal processing and the uplink facilities are permanently monitored and provide the necessary level of reliability and quality of service broadcasters expect. Support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
