The iMOD-W is a family of next generation satellite modem platforms built on versatile FPGA - and software-based architecture. The iMOD-W product line supports the full range of DVB-S2X/S2/S standards. Exceptional analog and digital engineering provide teleport-grade devices with future-proof expandability. Beyond DVB waveforms, iMOD-W devices can be extended to customized signal and data processing. Through an all-IP structure, the platform supports both native network operation as well as data streaming over IP. Built-in encapsulators provide support for a wide range of formats plus specialized streaming like transparent baseband data, raw IQ information, space data formats and more. The iMOD-W Satellite Modulator provides DVB uplinks for streams over IP and ASI interfaces, with TV signals being the main application. A dedicated feature set serves the specific requirements of distribution and DTH networks. Real-time monitoring and control together with common alarm and reference connectors allows seamless integration into professional teleport infrastructures.
