Signum is a compact IRD designed for the high-end radio distribution market that Elber is showcasing at IBC2019.
It demodulates one or two DVB-S or -S2 signals up to 32APSK (single/multi-stream), achieving 256 KS/s as minimum symbol rate. The TS demodulated signals can be aligned and configured in 1+1 switching for redundancy. Redundancy can also be achieved with external ASI and TSoIP inputs.
Signum supports MPEG-1 LI/II audio codecs, providing analogue and digital outputs. It’s possible to set a data PID to be decoded and passed to the internal RDS encoder, generating the dual MPX FM output. For future needs, an EDI interface makes Signum capable of feeding transmitters in DAB/DAB+ environments. BISS 0/1/E descrambling is also supported.
