Novra receivers have the full functionality required by IPTV applications including aggregating MPEG content via satellite for LAN distribution. Both free-to-air and DVB encrypted may be streamed. An optional 1 RU chassis holds up to 3 receivers and allows a compact IPTV head-end footprint.
Novra receivers can be used to form IPTV downlinks that provide PID filtering, de-multiplexing, multicast addressing and PAT insertion on MPEG or DVB transport streams. For example, both the Novra S75-Pro or S200-Pro (Video Forwarder) and S75CA or S200CA (DVB conditional access common interface) satellite receivers can be used for multicast distribution of satellite TV streams onto corporate LANs, cable TV head-ends or IPTV head-ends. They have the ability to forward up to 80 Mbps of aggregated transport stream data for re-distribution onto a LAN that makes it an ideal, low cost solution for content aggregation and distribution into IPTV or cable TV head-ends, or multi-dwelling environments such as hotels or apartments. The Novra IPTV solution provides comprehensive treatment of content aggregation, distribution, various traffic scenarios and other system considerations.
