亲爱的读者们:
本期《国际卫星电视》将聚焦中国。我们从一开始就在问我们自己这样一个问 题:所有的这些接收机都是哪儿来的。直到几年前,因为很多制造商还都分布 在很多不同的国家,这个问题的答案仍然不很明朗。但是在今天,问题的答案 已经很清楚了,大多数接收机的原产地就是中国。甚至即便是一些特别的型号 或者特别的品牌,其中的一些元器件也差不多都在中国生产。 一大批拥有卫星相关业务的公司在中国成 立,这意味着运输环节的开销降低到了最 低限度,生产接收机所需的所有部件和服 务都是现成的。不用说,这样的一批公司 将和磁铁一样吸引更多新的制造商和高科 技公司,所有的这一切都能够提供顶级的 品质和低廉的价格。毕竟这不是某一个公 司就能定下的调子,而是取决于大量的竞 争的生产商们。 让我们在价格问题上自习思考一会儿:大 多数中国制造商都是基于OEM(原始设 备制造商)模式的,这意味着他们为既有 的品牌、贸易公司或节目提供商生产接收 机。从制造商的角度看,这似乎有很大的 意义,他们仅仅需要为少数大客户生产某 一领域的产品。然而,这听上去近乎于完 美的安排在经济增长开始减缓的时候却又 很快成为这些制造商脖子上的枷锁。如果 制造商仅靠少量客户来得以维持,他们将不得不面对降低价格、减少订单和降 低生产能力这一系列窘境。 如果你能够建立自己的品牌,并独立于客户,你就能避免这种困境。因为你需 要你自己的品牌在全球范围内能够决定战略、产品和市场。很多中国的制造厂 商发现他们此刻正处在从依赖于别人的OEM制造商到独立品牌的过渡阶段。有 些厂商已经达到了这个目标,而其他厂商仍在征途之上。 这就是我们拜访中国的一些大制造商的原因。在国际市场上增加自信,同时也 意味着生产商在其产品上要直接面对卖家。在产品的面板上印上的不再是第三 方的商标,取而代之的是生产商自己的名字。生产商要独自对承担责任,因此 他们没有任何借口提供有瑕疵的产品。 不要有任何疑问:在对中国制造商的访问中,我们非常注重质量保证。当您在 阅读后面几页的关于这些公司的报道时您可以发现这些。质量和价格是这些制 造商们敞开大门,使得自己品牌得以认同的两个属性。这一发展也将推动贸 易,因为市场上的竞争的自有品牌是会对市场的期待和需求拥有感觉的。作为 回报,这样的制造商更能够为大客户提供完美的定制产品。 鲜为人知的原始设备制造商们正在走向舞台的中心——这是一个多么聪明的举 动啊!

《国际卫星电视》 创办于1981年 ,是目前 世界上发行时间最长、 发行量最大、 读者 最多的数字电视业界杂志。 在全世界 ,超 过250,000名业内人士在阅读印行和在线 的 《国际卫星电视》 《国际卫星电视》 。 用 全世界22种语言出版发行。 www.TELE-satellite.cn

求。 为了做到这个, 我们进入 了设定菜单, 并且发现OSD可 用的语言数量远远击败了常 规的寻星仪。

的话, 任何错误的卫星或转 发器数据都能够及时地被纠 正过来。 另外一个引人注意的亮点

输入。 这一功能令SM-3500完 美地配合一些非常用的LNB进 行工作。 这款寻星仪与其他产品一 样对使用DiSEqC 1.0和1.1的 多切 开 关 具 备良 好 的 兼 容 性。 甚至还支持专为电动天 线设计的DiSEqC 1.2和 1.3 (USALS) 。

除了一些常规的选择诸如 英语、 法语、 德语和西班牙语 之外, 这款寻星仪还提供了 俄语、 土耳其语、 捷克语、 葡 萄牙语、 斯洛文尼亚语、 波兰 语、 意大利语和希腊语。 借助 定时器模式, 这款寻星仪可以 设定在工作一段时间之后关 闭以延长其附带的1950mAh的 锂电池组寿命, 当然, 这样的 电能足够完成调整卫星天线 的了 。 之前所有找到的频道都存 储在了SM-3500的内部存储器 里面了 这些菜单项可以很方 。 便地被删除、 移动或按照字 母或卫星排序。 这 款寻 星 仪 还 能 显 示 当 前 所 安 装 的 软件 的 版 本 , 这让我们非常容易判断是否 需要对软件更新, 而更新软 件可以从制造商的网站www. trimaxtec.com来下载。 该SM3500附带提供了一个 全面的数据库用来与之卫星 和转发器参数。 分布在欧洲、 亚洲和美洲的同步轨道上的 总共55颗卫星的转发器数据 都可以被检索到, 这对于天 线校准提供了有力的帮助。 然 而 ,数 据 库 并 不 是 最 新 的 ,比 如 在 欧 洲 的 东 经 19.2° 的ASTRA和东经13° 的 HOTBIRD这两颗最热门的卫星 的参数。 我们还可以通过附 带的手动编辑功能编辑所有 转发器参数的功能, 如果需要

是我们喜欢这款寻星仪不光 仅仅为了Ku波段设计, 另外 的本振频率值 (例如C波段等 等) 能够被选择出来, 或者任 何需要的本振频率可以手动

很有帮助的预置的卫星和转发器数据

卫星/转发器可以轻易被手动编辑

主菜单

每一颗卫星皆可以单独设定的多个选项

当然, 也支持DiSEqC

位于东经13° 的热鸟卫星的天线度数

另外的事实则让这个小仪 器更加亲和用户: 所有卫 星 的参数 (例如本振频率或者 DiSEqC) 都能够在事先设定, 并且在之后的使用中可以通 过单次点击按键找回来。 这 样可以节省宝贵的时间, 并且 可以让你在屋顶上只需专注 天线的校准。 现在, 在我们完成所有的基 本设定之后, 我们可以爬到天 线旁松开校准螺丝。 一般来 说, SM-3500对每一个天线提 供了两种校准方式。 一种是基 于卫星搜索的模式, 而另一种 是基于频谱显示的。 如果你打算使用卫星搜索 模式, 你所需要做的全部就是 选择你想找到的卫星。 当然, 你可以很容易地切换到同一 颗卫星的另外的转发器上, 但 是事实上证明如果使用预先 存储的转发器寻星, 那么卫星 网络信息表所发送的数据对 于寻星并没有起到什么特别 的作用。

一个普遍的问题是, 相当一 部分的卫星转发器 (例如位于 东经42° 的土耳其卫星) 发送 错误的网络信息表, 自然, 这 将会导致其被寻星仪错误地 读取。 这就是为什么Trimax已 经检查了每个卫星的第一个 转发器并预设在默认转台用 以确保所读到的寻星数据总 是正确的。 毋需多言, 我们从一 开始 就最期待的同时也是极其好 奇的恰恰是这款寻星仪搜索 模式的实际工作状况。 此时 此刻我们在菜单上选择了东 经13° 的热鸟卫星, 低门限调 谐器开始测量并检查所有的 输入信号。 当我们移动天线 位置的时候, 基本上感觉不 到什么延迟信号条就跳起来 了 不过寻星仪仍然还不能锁 。 定信号, 这意味着我们还没 有完全调好热鸟卫星。 我们 继续小心地往东调整天线直 到SM-3500确认了我们已经 找到了位于东经13° 的热鸟卫 星。

令我们非常喜欢的是这一 款新的Trimax寻星仪不仅只 是出了信号质量的百分比和信 号强度, 而且还给出了C/N( 信噪比) BER 、 (误码率) 和以 dBμV表示的信号电平。 所有 的这一切使得精确调整天线 变得容易得多。 之后, 我们使 用专业的Promax寻星仪来验 证我们的结果, 结果发现SM3500表现得毫不逊色。

进行进一步的微调来校准天 线。 在专业领域, 当安装人员非 常熟悉某一颗卫星的频谱图 时, 使用频谱显示功能将对其 安装工作起到极大的帮助, 他 们能够通过简单地辨识显示 器上的频谱来寻找所需要的 卫星。 对于SM-3500的性能的所有

让我们看看我们的第二种 选择, 使用其集成的频谱分 析仪。 当你开始调整天线的时 候, 需要让频谱信号开始到达 峰值, 之后再换用寻星模式来

热情让我们几乎忘记在使用 任何一种模式之前我们必须 要做的一件事。 简单说, 我们 需要预先正确知道天线的方 位角和仰角, 至少差也得差个

SM-3500系统设定

方位角、 仰角和极化角的计算器

位于东经13° 的热鸟卫星的频谱显示

从频谱显示上读取的卫星信号峰值

300MHz带宽的频谱显示

在频谱显示模式下的LNB设定

八九不离十。 这便是Trimax寻 星仪的另一张王牌: 由于配 备了一个预置了方程式的计 算器, 你只需输入你所在地的 地理坐标和你想要找的卫星 位置, SM-3500将自动计算出

方位角、 仰角和极化角坐标。 有了这些, 你还有任何想问的 么? 实际上, 仍有一些亮点功 能。 这个寻星仪包括了一个全

功能的调谐器, 可以自动通过 预先存储的转发器数据来搜 索频道。 所有的频道都存在 于一个专用的频道列表上, 免费节目可以直接在显示屏 上面观看。 如果你还不确定是

否是你需要找的那颗卫星的 话, 你可以调到这些电视频道 上去看看这些频道是不是你 想要的。 此外, 对于一些远程通信 爱好者之间, 我们可以很高 兴 地向 你 确 认在电 视 模 式 下, SM-3500可以读取和显示 一些当前正在接受的转发器 中的一些特殊频道的节目标 识 (PID) 这是一个非常有 , 价值的附加功能。 凭借这项 功能, 那些“猎手” 们和远程 通信爱好者们将可以把一些 感兴趣的频谱显示出来。 除 了能够显示这些不同带宽的 频谱, 每一个弱信号还可以 被标记在Trimax寻星仪上, 并且可以读出实际的信号强 度。 借助所有的功能键, 我们 可以轻而易举地改变极化和 波段, 这意味着我们可以在 几秒钟内扫描所有的临时转 发器。 此外, LNB的设置诸如 DiSEqC位置的设置可以通过 专用的功能键直接在频谱显 示模式上进行设定。

对东经13° 的热鸟卫星进行自动搜索

基于预置的转发器数据, 频道可以被读出来

SM-3500可以直接将免费的DVB道显示出来

附加的信息条对于远程通信爱好者提供了相当有价 值的细节

广播电台频道也同样可以被接收。

数字键盘将转发器的数据输入变得容易

正如你所期盼的那样, 在 这款智能寻星仪上简单按下 OK按键, 搜索菜单会自己弹出 来, 这意味着就在你按下按 钮的一瞬间, 被找到的信号 峰值已经被分析并被读取。 我们在东经10° 的EUTELSAT W2A测试了这一功能, 并留下 了深刻地引向。 凭借频谱显示 的帮助, 我们能够几乎不费任 何时间地找出所有活动的中 继信号, 甚至借助这一功能, 我们可以找出哪些是新的活 动的转发器, 而哪些转发器已 经消失。 SM-3500在单路转发器上的 工作也很稳定并且取得了相当 不错的结果。 音视频输入输出接口把这 款新的Trimax数字寻星仪给 人的总体印象趋于完美。 这一功能不光能够在大一 些的显示器上显示OSD信号, 而且还能够让你将外部信号 放在SM-3500的显示器上面显 示, 这一功能特别适合户外使

用, 例如一台接收机需要连接 在天线上进行测试时。 总体上, 我们真的对这 款 Trimax SM-3500寻星仪印象 颇深。 这款新的寻星仪拥有 精湛的做工, 可以应对较弱信 号的非常低的调谐器门限, 以 及非常强的易用性。 其3.5寸TFT显示屏在阳光 直射下依然清晰易读, 并且其 长寿命的电池组可以从容应 对一个甚至多个天线的安装 调试。 由于Tr i m a x 总是 致 力于 进 一 步 强 化 其 产 品 ,S M 3 5 0 0 带 有一 个可供 连 接 个 人电脑的借口。 通过基于微 软Windows操作系统的新软 件, 生产商可以将一些新的 功能附加到寻星以上对其更 新。 如果你正在寻找一款全功 能的小型寻星仪, 这款将完全 符合你的要求, 不必去在其他 产品上浪费时间了 。

在俄罗斯的莫斯科, 有一家IPTV领域的公 司。 他们生产包括IPTV发布系统、 DVB网关、 条 件访问系统甚至结算系统 在内的各种 IPTV网络产品。 他们最新的研发项目是专业 的高集成度的卫星电视接收卡, 其主要目标 是专业的DVB-IP网关市场、 家庭影院以及卫 星因特网系统。 他们的接受卡不仅配备的两 个DVBS2调谐器, 而且还包含了两个通用接口 卡的插槽, 所有的这些都被容纳在一个仅占 一个PCIe卡槽位置的PC卡上面。 因为它面向 专业市场, 所以也能够在Linux下运行。 这款 卡可被用在机架内。 通常情况下机架会同时 安装两只接收卡。 与常规的PC卡不同的是这 款卡可以同时处理两个频道。 如果在机柜中 使用这款双调谐器的卡的话, 就意味着你可 以在一个机架单元内同时管理四个频道。
这款专业的接收卡也同样 适合卫星电视收视用户, 如果 他在收看全屏高清转播的自 己本地球队夺取欧洲杯的同 时还可以用另一只眼睛来观 看他所钟爱的电视剧的最新 一集。 喜欢涉猎中继信号的 卫星电视爱好者们恐怕会从 这款卡上得到更多的乐趣, 他 们可以同时关注两路不同的 DVB-S2中继信号。 真正的爱好 者们会像专业用户一样将这 款卡充分利用。 如果要想真正 从这款卡中得到乐趣, 我推荐 使用高端PC, 因为这款卡不包 括独立的H.264/MPEG2硬件解 码器。 任 何 软件 或 者 安 装 说 明。 在 N e t U P 的 支 持 网 页 上( http://w w w.hetup.tv/enEN/dual_dvb-s2-ci_card. php) 提供了Linux操作系统的 驱动程序。 我的下一步是检查 这款卡用了哪一种芯片组: Conexant CX23885。 看到了 这条信息, 我开始检查这款 卡是否被video4linux (下文 简称v4l) 所支持。 于是我转到 了LinuxTV百科网站http:// www.linuxtv.org上开始找到 DVB-S(2)的条目上。 在鼠标

轻点两次之后, 我发现这款 卡确实被支持! http://www. linuxtv.org/wiki/index. pho/NetUP_Dual_DVB_S2_CI

的v4l并不能够使用这款接收 卡。 幸运的是, 在LinuxTV百 科的接收卡页面上, 有这么 一条提示信息: 您需要检查 v4l的库以获得最新的源代 码。 这个库是基于多变源代码 控制系统的。 自然而然, 为了 能够检查你需要使用的源代 码, 你需要手动安装它。 我的 乌班图需要通过输入这条命 令安装: $ sudo apt-get install mercurial meld (图2) 然后, 我输入了LinuxTV百 科建议的命令, 这能够得到所

需的核心模块并且程序得以 编译: $ hg clone http:// linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/ $ cd v4l-dvb $ make > /dev/null 2>&1 $ sudo make install > /dev/null 2>&1 是检查所有一切是否都工 作正常的时候了 我重新启动 。 了我的电脑然后使用dmesg检 查了一下接收卡的工作状态。 棒极了! 接收卡和附带的两个 调谐器这次都被检测到并且 可见 (图3) 。 在接收卡被检测到之后,

我 们 剩 下 的 所 有 工作 就 是 安 装 播 放器 来 播 放 相 应 的 刘。 使用最简单的软件就是 Kaffeine, 这款软件可以通过 输入如下命令安装: $ sudo apt-get install caffeine Kaffeine是主要依赖于一 些KDE库的, 并且它会安装比 预期更多的软件包。 但是仍 然 需 要 我 手 动 选 上一 个 漏 掉的: libxine1-ffmpeg。 这 是进行H.264软件解码的软 件。在全 部安装结束后(整 个安装过程会持续几分钟) 我打开 “Application”菜单

在完成了这些准备工作之 后, 我打开了我的运行着乌 班图9.04的备用PC。 我开始期 待这款卡能够被自动检测出 来。 但是dmesg显示: 不支持 (图1) 因此, 。 看上去像是绑 定在乌班图9.04的默认版本

来扫描整颗卫星的所有转发 器。 在这一步骤持续几分钟 之后, 完整的频道列表会被 显示出来 (图5) 。 然而, Kaffeine并不能显示 两个调谐器, 因为它本身不 是用来配合这种复杂的接收 卡使用的。 解决方案是使用 更先进的软件, 例如MythTV, VLC或者MPlayer。 但是在换成 其它DVB播放器之前, 我检查 了Kaffeine的信号质量与信号 强度指示。 显然这个指示是不 正确的 (报告为3%和98%) 。 我 设 法 使 用卫 星 信号场 强 仪 来 测 量 这 两 个 指 标, 最后得到Anixe HD的信噪比 是6dB。 从这个角度看, 这意 味着有用信号的功率是噪声 功率的两倍, 从而可以认定 NetUP接收卡是市面上最灵敏 的接收卡之一。

实战
锁定时间在这款接收卡上 表现得十分出色。 扫描东经 13度的热鸟卫星全部转发器 的时间平均仅为4分47秒。 这 款 卡甚 至 还 有一 个 隐 藏 的亮点: 它能够接收16APSK DVB-S2的频道! 这种调制方 式通常被一些不希望被普通 收 视 用户收 看 而 隐 藏 起 来 的频道所使用。 不幸的是, 我们的90cm的碟形天线还不 足以从我所在的地方正常地 接 收 到 热 鸟卫 星 上 的 这 类 信号。 但是, 还是能 够得 我 到一些马赛克。 如果你距离 HOTBIRD主波束足够近的话, 请一下11.334H、 11.373H以及 11.432V这几组牺牲纠错码来 提高画质的频率。 这款NetUP双调谐器接收卡 会令高级卫星爱好者产生浓

厚的兴趣, 并且还非常适合使 用DVB-S2卫星信号的专业用 户。 调 谐 器的灵敏 度出 类 拔 萃。这款接收卡需要工作在

Linux操作系统中, 并且需要 安装人员具备部分软件工程 背景。 但是, 出去这一点困难 之外, NetUP接收卡仍然是一 款完美的PC接收卡。

Multiple Output LNB

的多输出型号 为满足更复杂安装条件的Ku波 段LNB
我们已经在之前出版的 《国际卫星电视》 中介绍了Technomate的 单输出LNB。 我们曾非常高兴地得到了它们性能非常出色的这一 结论。 然而Technomate还生产多输出LNB。 他们同样出色吗? 我 们拿到了它们的双输出、 四输出、 四输出 (独立单频单极化) 和八 输出模块来进行评估。

我们知道这些LNB并不能像 他们的单输出型号 (TM-1) 那 样优秀。 但是我们仍然或多或 少地保持着我们之前对其优 秀的单输出全频段LNB测试时 的良好印象。 目前市面上并没 有太多的产品性能能够与其相 比。 双输出LNB是我们最先测试 的。 TM-2是标准的双输出型号 (0.2dB), TM-2 SHG (高增益) 是这一产品的低噪声高增益输 出型号(0.1dB)。 确实, 各位读 者可以从图上看到高增益型号 的衰减为2dB, 明显高出对照 组的标准型号的3dB。 此外, 高 增益型号还在对某些转发器 ( 并不是所有的转发器) 的噪声 方面表现出来优越的性能。 仅 仅在高频段水平极化下, 标准 型TM-2会表现得稍微好那么 一点点。 但是无论如何, 所有 这两种型号都在双输出LNB领 域中拥有出色的表现。 同样, 两个输出端仅有及其微小的差 别。 在结束了双输出LNB的测试 之后, 我们开始了四输出LNB和 四输出 (独立单频单极化) 的 型号的测试。 我们采用了与双 输出LNB相同的测试: 与LNB增 益相关的信道功率和与LNB输 出端信号质量相关的误码率。 这一次, 我们只测试了高增益 版本的TM-4(普通四输出)和

TM-4Q(独立单频单极化)两个 型号。 我们首先测试了普通四 输出四个输出口的差别。 特别 是在误码率方面, 这两个型号 的LNB都击败了我们选择的对 照产品。 再次重申: 这是一个 非常好的结果。 最后是对八输出的测试。 我们采用了标准的TM-8和高 增益的TM-8进行测试。 就像我 们所期望的那样, 通过高增益 LNB所得到的信号要强一些。 但是所有的信号都比我们选 择的对照产品要略强一些。 同样, 高增益型在信号质量上 面表现要优越。 但是, 需要重 申, 所有的两个被测型号和我 们的参考产品上的差别都非常 小。 我们可以得到这样的一个结 论——Technomate的LNB是我 们实验室当中测试过的迄今 为止最棒的一款LNB。 超高增 益型好也确实对信号的放大 起到了一定作用, 特别是在连 接至多台接收机的时候, 这款 型号将是一个不错的选择。

34 TELE-satellite — Global Digital TV Magazine — 02-03/2010 — www.TELE-satellite.com

在信号质量方面, 与单输出LNB相比, 这是 几款非常好的多输出LNB。 超高增益LNB能 够给出比普通版本LNB更高的输出增益 (大 约5d B) 在使用长电缆的地方, 。 您应当选 择这种型号。 在同样的安装条件, 但仅仅需 Jacek Pawlowski TELE-satellite Test Center 要短电缆 (10-20米) 的条件下, 标准版本的 Poland LNB应当表现得同样出色。 所有的模型都采 用F型接头。 各个输出端所表现出来的差异非常细微。 其 制造工艺确实非常精湛。

SPAUN SVN 231 F

放大器 为天线安装而设计的通用积木 式组件
大多数独立接收用户都是同时使用卫星和地面天线的。 理论上, 我们可以分别对卫星和地面 电视使用不同的电缆, 但是这样做并不是非常地实用。 通常, 一个信号合成器会被放在屋顶 下面。 我们将LNB的输出端和地面电视天线的输出端连到信号合成器。 这个合成器仅有一个 信号输出端供单条电缆使用。 现在我们就同时有了两个信号——卫星和地面电视信号—— 在同一电缆内传输。 信号之间不会互相干扰, 因为他们处于不同的频段: 47-862MHz (地面电 视) 和950-2150MHz (卫星电视中频) 。

一个简单的无源的信号合 成器会增加不需要的和不必 要的信号衰减。因此, 更加 明 智的 选 择 就 是 使 用 有 源 器件 — —卫 星中频 /地面电 视信号放大器。享誉盛名的 德国分配器件制造商SPAU N Electronic提供了一款应对 此类应用案例的非常令人感 兴趣的产品。 我们决定来测 试一下SVN 231 F放大器的性 能。

特点
这一款设备被封装在了一 个典型的有着蓝色塑料部件 的漂亮的SPAU N铝制封装外 壳中。 和其他的SPAUN分配设 备一样, 这款设备的做工依然 非常考究。 你可以使 用4 个 螺 丝钉把 SVN 231 F固定在墙壁上。 但 是请千万要记得一点, 这款设 备是仅供室内使用的, 而并不 是露天使用的。 多数情况下, 这款设备会被放置在卫星和 地面电视天线的电缆进入建 筑物处的房顶下面。 当然, 你 还需要为这款放大器提供电 源 (100~240V 47~63Hz) 其 。 总体功耗小于18W。 作为一个卫星中频和地面 信号的放大器, SVN 231 F有 两个输入端: 一个连接一只 LNB,另外一个连接地面电视 信号。 对于LNB而言, Ku波段 的或者C波段的都没有问题。 这两种LNB的输出信号都落在 950-2150MHz的频率范围内。 而对于地面信号而言, 它可以 连接单个电视天线或者多个 通过分支滤波器连接起来的 地面天线。

SVN 231 F能够分别调整 卫星和地面信号的增益。 卫 星信号可以被放大20~30dB, 而地面信号可以被 放大 10~20dB。 因此, 在所有的情 况下, 增益的调整范围都是 10d B。 一个有趣的功能是可 调的信号均衡器被集成在卫 星信号的通路上。 借助这一功 能, 您可以降低卫星中频信号 中较低频率的增益。 通过这 一措施, 您就能避免线缆对 于低频率的损耗低而对于高 频率的损耗高这一现象。 根 据这项指标, 调节范围在卫 星中频低端(950)起始的调 整范围是从0到-12dB。 此外, SVN 231 F允许您 给 安 装 在 地 面 信号 输 入 端 (例如天线放大器或者有源 天线) 或卫星输入端的设备 供电, 甚至还可以直接在输 出电缆上得到直流电压。 使 用“DiSEqC-1-2-3”选择开 关, 您可以选择您需要的安 装形式。 在我们的测试点路

上, 我们使用SVN 231 F提供 的直流电源给有源地面电视 信号天线供电, 工作状况非 常完美。 这个开关被设定在了 2的位置。 在这个位置, 18V直 流 (最大400mA) 将被供给到 地面电视信号输入端, 并且卫 星输入端也转发在SVN 231 F信号输出端上连接的卫星接 收机所给出的电压和22kHz的 信号。 您不仅可以使用SVN 231 F来同时放大卫星和地面信 号并合成到一条电缆上, 而 且, 它也能作为线上放大器来 对已经混合了的卫星/地面信 号来进行放大。 在这种情况 先, 您要使用SVN 231 F的卫 星输入端, 并且将A-B开关调 到B的位置。

位于东经13° 的热鸟卫星, 并在SVN 231 F的输入端和 输出端同时测量增益从最小 到最大和不同均衡控制时的 信号电平。 我们使用实际的卫 星转发器, 因此测试频率的 数量会给人深刻的印象。 您 可以参考“放大器增益—频 率” 图。 实际增益与其技术指标完 全相符: 控制电平调到最低点 时20dB, 最高点时30dB。 在整 个中频范围内信号增益非常 平坦。 这里所说的中频信号指的 是在Ku波段或者C波段LNB输 出 端 得 到 的 信 号。其 始 于 950MHz, 结束在2150MHz。 正如之前所提到的, 均衡 器控制可以让您对电缆带来 的损耗进行补偿。 根据技术 指标所述, 增益在最低频率 上可以调整的范围是从0到12dB。 我们的实验结果表明

其调整范围可能更大, 从0到14dB。 我们非常高兴地特别向您 指出, 信号的质量在输出和输 入端不会有任何改变。 MER参 数在的测试结果是13.0dB对 13.2dB。 这意味着SVN 231 F的内部噪声低到了不至于 对信噪比产生任何影响的程 度。 在测试了卫 星信号之后, 我们也测试了地面信号。 再一 次地, 我们使用了模拟制地 面电视的真实信号。 验结 试 果在“地面信号增益” 图上。

与卫 星信号非常相似, 实际 的增益几乎与技术指标给出 的控制电平最大时20dB最小 10dB完全相等。 最后, 我们决定测试我们当 地的DVB-T复用信号从而保证 对其是否也同样有效。 结果与 技术指标仅差0.2dB。 我们对 我们测试的设备的真实性能 完全符合其技术指标感到非 常荣幸。 SVN 231 F是一款杰出的用 于天线安装的积木式模块。 它同时为卫星和地面信号提 供了可调的高增益。

九洲 DVE-4Q 为数字电视前端提供的4通道 MPEG-2编码器
当我们在沉浸于观看数字电视的时候, 我们从来都曾不考虑信号是如何产生的。 专业一些的的观众们可能知道最原始的 输入信号通常都是模拟形式的。 这种模拟 信号必须被转换成数字形式。 实际上, 一 个传输流可以携带好几路数字化的模拟 节目。 之后, 这个传输流将会被送到调制 器被调制成为DVB-S传输的QPSK信号、 为 DVB-C传输的QAM信号或者为DVB-T传输的 COFDM信号。 相同的传输流可被应用到数 字卫星、 有线电视或者地面电视。 但是, 如 何创建传输流呢?
这就是MPEG-2编码器所扮 演的角色。 这些编码器都是 一些拥有一个或更多模拟输 入端口和一个用来输出传输 流的数字输出端口的盒子。 将模拟转换成数字信号并不 像听上去这么简单。 数字信 号处理器有点类似于我们电 脑里面的微处理器, 他们被 用来实时地对信号作出正确 的转换。 如果这一点做得不 正确, 我们可能会遇到口型 对不上的问题 (音视频时间 的偏移已经足以让人类感官 察觉) 或图像上的数字失真 (比如屏幕上突然出现马赛 克, 特别是在动态场景的时 候) 。 九洲DV E- 4 Q 被设计成 适 合于19′ 安装的典型专业设 备。 其前面板看上去朴实无 华, 仅有LCD显示屏、 电源、 LED状态指示灯以及六个按 钮。 但是, 毕竟MPEG-2编码 器并不是一个令您可以将其 放置于你的电视柜里面来给 你的客人留下深刻印象的设 备。 它是一台应该被安装在 前端站里, 编好程序之后就 不需要人看管的设备。 后面板 揭示了DV E- 4 Q 实 际要承担的工作。 四组音视 频信号通过BNC接头输入, 我们在 卫 星电视 接 收 机 上 可以得到相同类型的信号, 但不一样的是 RCA插座。 这 种 信号就 是模 拟视 频 和 模 拟立体声音频信号。 仪器的

后, 您可以移步到下一项: 复用设定。 他们不是作为通 道的扩展设定的。 在这个菜 单里, 您可以选择哪个通道 将被 (在传输流) 中复用。 下一项关于复用的设定是传 输流总输出比特率的设定。 这项设定的范围从1M bps到 54M bps。 当然, 您应该将总 比特率设定得大于各通道比 特率的总和。 接下来的菜单 项 允许您 选择SDT表是否包含在流里 面。 在服用设定的最后一项 是设定传输流的ID号。 下一项菜单——系统设定 菜单——用来设定局域网参 数: 地址、 IP 子网掩码和网 关。 这个菜单中的最后一个 菜单项是恢复出厂设置。 最后一个菜单项是 “警告 信息” 仅当红色的LED状态 , 指示灯点亮的时候才会被用 到。 通过这个菜单, 您可以 检查到底是什么原因导致了 错误的发生。

台DV B-T调制器上。 在输入 端, 我们是用了一台DVD播放 机以及卫星电视接收机的输 出信号。 编码器开始运作, 没有遇到任何问题。 仅仅使用默认的设定值, 我 们就在输出端得到了插图中 的那个质量好得异乎寻常的 信号。 CBER在1×10-5是我们 通常很难见到的。 这款编码 器在不同的按照我们的设定 生成了不同分辨率的图像。 除了在视频分辨率方便, 同样地, 通道的所采用的比 特 率也会 影 响到 我们 在电 视 机 上得 到的画 面质 量。 当我们将比特率降低到 1.5Mbps时, 尤其是在场景转 换的时候, 严重的图像是真 明显可见。 通常情况下, 比特 率越低传输成本就越低。 然 而, 您不应该将比特率降得 太低, 因为这会使观众注意 到画面的失真。 拥有一台像 DVE-4Q这样的编码器, 人们 可以轻易地为自己进行合适 的设定。 在整个测试过程中, DVE4Q的工作无可挑剔。 他可以 建立非常高质量的数字视频 和音频传输流, 除非我们故 意降低水平。

只有在前端站使用非常好的调制器的输出的情况下才能够看见如此完美的 信噪比表现

从这个公司今天的业务来看, 很难想象 如此巨大的企业是从一些小的项目做起 来的。 长虹集团成立于1958年, 在当时为 军方生产雷达系统。 然而在今天, 该公司 已经发展成为一个超大型、 多元化、 涵盖 13种不同产业的国际集团。 他们的产品从 数字电视显示器面板到IT系统、 空调系 统、 数字音频产品、 机顶盒、 环保电池和 电源, 乃至延伸到整个技术装备、 电子工 程和化工原材料产业。 四川长虹网络科技有限责任公司是长 虹集团下属的13个产业之一。 它是四川长 虹集团旗下的独立子公司, 面向研发、 市 场销售和制造所有标准的数字机顶盒, 诸如DVB-S, DVB-C, DVB-T, ISDB, DMB-

TH, 当然也包括带有增值数字电视系统 在内的高清电视。 他们的生产能力高达1,200万, 这使他 们成为了中国最大的机顶盒制造商。 该公 司将大量资金投入质量控制, 建立了一 个数字电视实验室, 一个数字光纤试验 网, 一个电磁兼容试验室, 最重要的是一 个高精度的生产线。 长虹的目标是成为 世界上最强大的数字电视整体方案供应 商之一。 “长虹集团从1978年开始生产电视 机, Richard Cheng Li回忆道。 ” “我 们在那个时候从日本的松下公司进口了 一条完整的生产线, 并且我们的生产过

毋需多言, 一个世界级的制造商不会仅 仅止步于生产。 顶尖的产品必须具备大量 的安全要求和标准, 而所有的这一切都藉 由生产过程中间的检查工作和生产结束 后的检验工作来确认。 这种每天都需要进 行的测试需要的不仅仅是生产技术的专 门知识, 因此找到长虹如何处理这个问题 的方法是一件很有意思的事情。 为了找到答案, 我们来到了一楼硬件测 试经理Wang Xiao Bo工作的地方。 他负 责多种测量设备并且非常自豪地请我们 注意那台测试发射机: “我们能够发出 DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C, 当然也包括中国的 DMB-T和ABS-S信号。 凭借特殊的软件, 我 们甚至还能为了测试目的而生成ISDB-T信 号。 当前在生产过程中的一些产品会被 ” 抽样并送到测试实验室来进行测试以确 定其是否符合技术标准。 技术规格方面, 长虹是否真的检测其产 品符合所有的安全要求呢? 我们驱车前 往在长虹大厂另一端的、 几英里以外的一 个地方。 一个电磁兼容试验室赫然耸立在 公司的员工宿舍后面、 调度中心旁边的地 方。 You Meng是实验室的经理。 他给我们 展示了挂在墙上的一张证书: “我们的测 量实验室在2008年取得了美国联邦通信 委员会的认证。 顺便说一句, ” 令人惊讶的 是这个电磁兼容试验室拥有具备尖端技 术的专业测试系统。 辐射测试是在一个 9×6米的金属包围的大厅中进行的。 四个 小一点的房间可以进行电磁干扰测试和 其他测试。 “这个测量实验室意味着一笔 超过100万美元的投资, You Ming向我 ”

们揭示到。 总共六位工程师在这个实验室 工作。 他们从事产品生产前的检测和产品 的样品是否负责安全标准的检测。 由此可 见, 在长虹, 质量检测和质量保证是生产 过程中行之有效的一环。 然而, 对于其销 售状况, 我们仍尚不了解。 海外销售经理Richard Cheng Li告诉 我们一些细节: “我们每年生产大约一千 万部多媒体设备, 大多数是电视机, 以及 三百到四百万台接收机。 其中70%的接收 机和80%的多媒体设备在中国销售, 其余 的都出口 。 了” 而这正是我们所寻找的一个非常绝妙 的一点: 长虹的生产基地并不是那种非常 理想的、 坐落在沿海拥有各种港口可以将 其产品运送到世界任何角落的地方。 “然 而, 我们找到了一种解决方案, Richard ” Chen Li透露。 “与其试图出口产品, 我们 决定将我们的生产放到国外去。 ” 今天, 长虹集团所运营的生产工厂遍及 了捷克共和国、 印度尼西亚、 澳大利亚以 及独联体国家。 在巴西、 迪拜和印度, 长 虹运营着装配厂和销售办事处。 所有的 这些都对该公司的拓展计划起到了一个 令人印象深刻的证明。 另外的一个来自于Richard Cheng Li给

我们的启示是: 他如何评 价公司的未 来? “今后的几年当中我们将看到本地数 字电视接收机市场会显著上升, 因为几乎 所有的国家都处在将其本地广播从模拟 过渡到数字化的阶段。 ” 长虹已经完全有能力占领这一政府驱 动下的市场, 因为他同时生产电视机和数 字电视机顶盒这两种产品, 并且这两种产 品将在今后几年取得真正的繁荣。 目前, 虹 正在 努力提高 其 市场定 长 位: “我们参加了所有主要的专业展览 会, Richard Chen Li对我们说道, ” 并罗列出了下面的一些 例子: 德国的 IFA, 荷兰的IBC, 俄罗斯的CSTB, 迪拜 的CABSAT, 印度的Convergence, 新加坡的 BroadcastAsia, 以及巴西的Broadcast & Cable。 长虹已经走过了很长的一段路。 目前, 该公司拥有使用所有能够用到的、 拥有最新技术的顶尖的生产设备。 更重要 的是, 将每件事情都试着做到最好的这 种精神更进一步地增加了长虹的整体实 力。 聚焦在接收机和电视机使该公司在今 后几年中的数字化和高清电视浪潮中始 终航行在正确的轨道上, 而这一切将最终 导致长虹会站在一个令全球主要竞争对 手都垂涎不已的一个位置上。

■ 坐落在深圳的深科技管理大楼

就在这期 《国际卫星电视》 出版的时候, 深科技已然成为了又一家卫星接收机 制造商。 当我们造访他们的时候他们刚刚完成组装线的安装并开始试运行。 深科技何许人也? 到底是什么原因致使这家公司投入了卫星电视接收机的制 造商的行列?

关于第一个问题, 我们还得求教于深 圳开发科技股份有限公司的市场部主管 Lidya Jin.她是这样向我们解释深圳开 发科技股份有限公司是如何一路走来成 为今天这样的: “深圳开发科技股份有 限公司是在1985年, 在时任电子工业部 部长、 前国家主席江泽民的提议下建立 的。 ” 这家公司所生产出的第一件产品是硬 盘磁头。 从1995年起, 该公司开始生产电 能表。 今天, 生产总量高达5百万的电能 表中一部分出口到印度。 “我们为印度市 场生产一种防止篡改窃电的电能表” , ■ 生产大楼一瞥 Lidya Jin解释道。 深科技同样向意大利 的电子设备公司ENEL出口电能表。 这些 电能表都是根据客户要求特别设计的。 直至今日, 深科技已经向意大利出口了大 约1千7百万只这种电能表。 深科技同时又是硬盘盘芯、 收银机、 多媒体播放器、 投影仪、 线路板、 DRAM模 块、 U盘乃至手机的生产商。 但是, 这些 产品的大多数并没有印着深科技的名 字, 取而代之的是这些产品都印着订货 的商家的商标。 深科技将他们自己摆在 电子产品制造服务提供商的位置上。 他 们的客户大多是一些像希捷和三星这样 的国际知名公司。 深科技拥有8000名员工, 2008年的销 售额是20亿元。 深科技的最大股东是 1999年在香港股票交易所上市的长城 工业公司。 长城工业公司又隶属于中国 100强企业之一的、 中国最大的IT公司、 在2008年的销售额大约是100亿美元的 中国电子集团。 深 科 技在两个 地点运营: 主要部分 在深 圳 运营, 有610 0名员工, 拥 占地 80,000平方米。 另外一个地点设在长江 三角洲的苏州, 拥有2100名员工, 占地 14,800平方米, 主要为三星笔记本电脑和 希捷硬盘制作线路板。 ■ 这个模型是在深科技入口大厅一进门就能看到的: 管理大楼和生产线在左侧, 右
边的是生产大楼, 在其后的是职工宿舍。 这些员工来自中国几乎所有的省份, 公司对 这些员工给予了力所能及的帮助。 当员工们结婚了, 他们可以搬出单身宿舍, 然后可 以搬到公司为他们新建的单元房去居住。 颜杰对深科技公司所给予员工的福利感到 非常骄傲。

深科技是世界第二大硬盘驱动器磁头 组制造商, 占领了全球市场份额的10%。 215名工程师在其研发部门工作, 100名工 程师从事质量保障工作, 而其系统的管

理工作由另外30名在市场方面和管理方 面拥有丰富经验的专家来担当。 在对深科技生产方面做了 介绍之后, 您

就很容易看出来为什么深科技想要开始 生产卫星电视接收机了 市场经理颜杰用 。 下面的话想我们解释: “大约一年前, 我 们最大的一家印度的电能表客户到我们

这里来, 并问我们是否想要生产卫星电 接收机。 这位客户对于深科技的质量和 ” 未来产品的开发印象颇深。 这也使这位 客户很自然地认为深科技应该也能够为 他们的DTH (卫星直播入户) 工程生产卫 星电视接收机。 很自然地, 我们很快地创建了一个全新 的卫星接收机生产厂 但是, 。 当然这也并 不限制在这一位客户。 颜杰解释道, “我 们目前正在和另外一家将在东南亚地区 成为最大卫星直播商的公司进行洽谈, 同事, 我们也正等待着开始和第三家客 户进行接洽。 ” 深科技的生产能力如何呢? GuangYun Z h u是他们的卫 星电视接收机生产经 理。 他对我们说, “现在我们的生产设备 每年能够生产500万台接收机。 ” 当我们参观制造工厂时, 我们可以清 楚地看到为什么深科技在电子制造服务 的领域里定位在如此之高的位置: 每一 件东西都被严格地整理起来, 而所有机 器都是最先进的。 像三星这样的世界级的工厂永远把质 量保障放在优先考虑的位置, 这是众所 周知的。 这当然也成为了深科技迈向卫 星市场的最重要的一个理念。 ■ 市场部经理颜洁正在向我们展示他们制造的第一台卫
星电视接收机模型。 这将成为他们为印度卫星直播电视 商所生产的接收机。 颜杰正站在一面有中国前国家主席 江泽民题词的墙的前面。

■ Jack 过去的 《国际卫星电视》 曾报道过这 家生产商制造的接收机, 但是都是打着 别的品牌。 创维本身就是一个OEM (原始 设备制造商) 衡量一个原始设备制造 。 商是否成功的标准是产品的质量。 是什 么让创维在OEM行业取得了如此巨大的 成功呢? 为什么越来越多的来自世界各 地的知名大客户都开始和创维合作呢? 又是为了什么这些客户都对创维满意 呢? 带着这些问题, 我们决定走访位于 中国南部深圳南山高科技园区的创维公 司。 创维公司坐落 在一座非常引人注目 的超现代风格的大楼中。 在这里, 我们 见到了公司的副总经理甘伟才。 在公司 网页上我们可以看到创维生产电视机 和其他接收机之外的产品。 所以, 自然 而然地, 我们问甘伟才的第一个问题 便是各种业务所占的比例如何。 他解释 道“如果你从销售额的角度来看, 电视 机占到了70%, 接收机占到了20%, 其余占 10%。 但是甘伟才继续提到一件更有趣 ” 的事情: “如果你从利润方面考量, 则接 收机部分要超过20%。 这些数字是由大 ” 约由2000名接收机部门的员工创造出来 的; 创维总共拥有20,000名员工。 创维是一家在香港证交所上市的公 司。 “在2010年, 我们将积极筹划在中国 证交所将我们的机顶盒业务上市” 甘伟 , 才说道。 这 些 数 字 意 味 着 什 么 呢 ?甘 伟 才 跳 跃 到以百 万作为 数 量单 位 继 续 说 道: “2008年我们生产了5百万接收机, 2009年将生产出8百万台接收机。 2010年 我们预测总共1千万台接收机将会被生 产出来。 创维生产有线电视接收机、 ” 卫星电视接收机和地面电视接收机。 甘 伟才向我们透露: “在经过10年的努力 后, 我们已经在国家的数字电视领域取 得了优异的成绩。 自从我们在2001年开始 大规模生产机顶盒, 创维已经为全中国 100多作城市提供了优良的品质的产品和 周到的服务。 近几年, 创维数字一直保持 着自2004年以来的有线电视机顶盒中国 销量第一的成绩, 占领了国内机顶盒市 场份额的20%。 ” 这些接收机都去往何处呢?甘伟才向 我们罗列到: “90%有限电视机顶盒在中 国销售, 另外10%出口到海外。 然而, ” 卫 星电视机顶盒的情形则正好相反: “仅

南美市场方面, 创维数字在很多不同标 准和技术工艺上投入了大量资金, 诸如 RoHS, REACH, CE和低功耗法规, 其目的 是为了满足我们的客户们的特殊需求, 这也正是为什么我们拥有很多来自于世 界各地的知名大客户的原因。 ”关于标 准清晰度和高清晰度机顶盒的情况又是 怎样的呢? 甘伟才说道, “在2009年, 我 们80 %的机顶盒是标准清晰度的, 其余 20%是高清晰度的。 我们希望在2010年将 这个比例将会变成70%的标清机顶盒和 30%的高清机顶盒。 ” 在创维产品的背后又是怎样的一个 技术团队呢? Jack Zhang是首席技术官 和研发部门经理。 “我们使用世界主要 芯片厂商提供的芯片” Jack Zhang说 , 道, “从高端到低端产品, 我们对运营商 市场使用诸如意法半导体, 高通, 恩智浦 等厂商生产的产品; 在零售方面, 我们使 用Cheerteck和Ali这些厂商的产品。 ” 2010年, Jack Zhang启动了使用意法 半导体的7111和7105两款芯片的两条新 的产品线。 “ST7105是特别为高速数据 传输而设计的芯片, 我们将把它用在高 速带有录像功能的机顶盒的E-SATA接口 上。 ”这个芯片组也将使用在内置闪存 芯片的机顶盒中。 甘伟才阐述道, “如果

任何一家我们的OEM客户向我们要求我 们这样做, 我们可以直接投产。 同样, ” 在新生产的DVB-T和DVB-S机顶盒中, 创 维已经准备了SCART接口。 “我们正在申 请专利” 甘伟才补充道。 , 创维不断带来 新的创意。 研发工程师团队也令人印象 深刻: 它由350名员工组成。 另一方面, 海 外销售团队却很小: 这是一个由20名员 工组成的团队。 此外, 另有40名员工负责 销售中国本地市场。 另外40名员工负责 行政、 人力资源、 采购, 当然还有管理人 员。 生产员工1720人。 总而言之, 这个公 司相当精简。 当甘伟才讲到他们的经验时非常有 趣: “在FTA接收机开始大规模生产的时 候, 出场价格从十年前下跌了80%。 高清 接收机的降价达到这种水平只需三年左 右。 ”降低成本的压力对于制造商来说 无疑是巨大的。 为了跟得上步伐, 重新设 计总是必需的。 “大 约 2 0 % 的产量 主要 面 对高 端 市场, 另外3 0 % 的产量 是 针对中端市 场。 ”甘伟才做了如下评论: “我们不断 扩大我们的业务范围, 并且这样做也在 帮助我们打入低端市场。 浙江帮助我们 取得更大的购买力, 开发出更加智能的 技术设计。 所有的这一切让我们在市场

竞争中越来越强。 我们不打价格战, 但 是我们提供更具成本效益的产品。 ” 然而, 最后一点仍然是相当重要的, 就是我们今天来到这里的主要原因是我 们想要看到的是创维的品质保障。 我们 跳上了公司的班车, 它将带我们到坐落于 此以西20公里的石岩工业园区的创维生 产厂房去。 品质保障经理Zhou Yong已 经在车上等候我们了, 我们和他聊了一 路: “50名员工检测成品, 另外50名员工 监测生产过程中的每一个步骤。 ”Zhou Yong这样向我们解释道。 生产厂区实际上是一个拥有很多生产 厂房和员工宿舍的的很大的一块地方, 甚 至还包括一个供员工休闲使用的完全尺 寸的足球场。 此外, 有很多质量控制点 ( 如图) 甚至还有专门检测危险货物的安 , 全检查站 (ROHS) 用以检查每一件运进 : 来的危险货物。 这些物质包括铬、 汞、 铅、 溴以及镉。 所有这一切将保证输出的 成品绝不包含任何危险物质。 创维确实尽到了一切的努力来保证其 最高水平的质量。 这正表明了为什么越 来越多的重量级的客户都来选择创维来 生产他们的机顶盒。 这也是创维成功的 保障!

Satellite Dealer COWMIX in Arizona/USA

JT is COWMIX
Satellite reception has been linked with PayTV for many years in the USA. But this has slowly been changing; free-to-air (FTA) reception is becoming more and more popular. The USA is a land of immigrants and since many providers from around the world send their programming to the USA for free, it makes sense that so many want to be able to watch TV in their mother-tongue or perhaps even their grandmother-tongue. Why should you pay a monthly fee to watch English-language programming when you can watch channels in their original language for free?
■ Who does this car belong to with this license
plate? Right, JT stands for Jeremy Tieman and ORG is for his organization.

This trend here in the USA was recognized not only by TV viewers but also by many daring technology enthusiasts who started their own satellite dealer business and thereby promoted this trend. One of these freshly-baked satellite dealer newcomers is Jeremy Tiemann who can be found in Phoenix, the capital of the state of Arizona located in southwestern USA. His company COWMIX has been in existence since 2006 and it turns out that the start of his company did not exactly go according to plan: “I originally planned to sell MP3 players.” At the beginning it was only an idea to make himself independent in the Engineering field. “The deciding factor turned out to be a friend of the family, a doctor, who regularly traveled to Las Vegas for the CES consumer electronics show.” Jeremy tells us. In 2005 this doctor asked Jeremy to simply come along to the CES. While walking through the trade show they both began to real-

ize that they had the same desire to use their engineering interests commercially. No sooner said than done: an LLC (limited liability corporation) was formed. The doctor controlled a large portion of the finances but stayed out of the way of the company’s day-to-day operations. “The attempt to be successful in the MP3 market quickly failed”, remembers Jeremy of those early days, “No sooner did we get a delivery than we found out that newer models were already available that had twice the memory.” A small, newly-started company could not keep up with a pace like that. And then by sheer coincidence, a friend showed off his newly acquired FTA satellite system to Jeremy. “It was like getting struck by lightning”, says Jeremy, “That’s it!” Jeremy immediately sat himself in front of his laptop and began to familiarize himself with satellite technology. He bought different receiver models and 98 TELE-satellite — Global Digital TV Magazine — 02-03/2010 — www.TELE-satellite.com

thoroughly tested each of them. “I will stick with SonicView; those are the best receivers.” he finally declared. He met Tony Lively, SonicView’s sales manager, at the CES show in 2007 and placed his first receiver order: 250 boxes! In February 2007 the delivery truck arrived: but where to put the palette? “COWMIX was founded in my garage”, explains Jeremy, “that was the only place where I could store the receivers.” But now the big question for his new business: how do you get rid of these 250 receivers and make a profit? Jeremy is a Systems Administrator by trade and that means he knows his way around computers. And that also means that he is intimately familiar with the Internet too. That’s where he began his selling offensive: “I started by putting my receivers for sale on E-bay and Craig’s List.” Craig’s List, available in every city,

is a place to put small ads. It happens to be very popular in the USA. It didn’t take long for Jeremy to see the difference between E-bay and Craig’s List: “On Ebay you hear from people from all over the country and beyond while on Craig’s List it is mostly just the locals because I only placed the ads in Craig’s List for Phoenix. So, is Jeremy planning to stop offering receivers through E-bay? “I’m going to tell you a little secret”, whispers Jeremy, “I will continue to offer the receivers on E-bay simply because it is the most cost-effective way to publicize my company.” E-bay visitors often only look for experts in their vicinity and interested parties in Arizona will quickly find their way to COWMIX. Jeremy explains, “Actual receiver sales can be attributed more to Craig’s List; from 20 receivers that are sold via Craig’s List, only one is sold via E-bay.” Jeremy has a suggestion

to all the potential business opportunists among TELE-satellite’s readers: “Offer your products via E-bay. In this way your address will quickly become known at a very cheap price!” That’s a great inside tip. Sure enough, the 250 receivers from that first delivery were gone in four months. Jeremy soon after took the next step and rented an office with a storeroom. He explains, “In the first year 2007 I sold 1500 receivers; the following year it was 4000 receivers.” In 2009 the economic crisis hit home: “I definitely felt the pinch”, says Jeremy, “by the end of the year it will only be around 2500 receivers.” Despite this setback, Jeremy is once again optimistic for 2010: “Sales should substantially increase since the FTA market is the market of the future!” We certainly agree with that. 99

INTELSAT TO BUY PROTOSTAR 1 SATELLITE FOR US$ 210 MILLION

SES ORDERS FOUR NEW SATELLITES

SES has ordered four satellites in a deal from Astrium worth €500 million. The new satellites - Astra 2E, Astra 2F, Astra 2G and Astra 5B - are intended to improve satellite television services in Europe and boost development in Eastern Europe and Africa. They will be located at two orbital positions (28.2 and 31.5 degrees East) and will carry Ku-and Ka-band payloads. The launch of the new satellites should take place between 2012 and 2014, and each is expected to last for 15 years.

Intelsat was selected in October 2009 as the successful bidder at a bankruptcy auction for the ProtoStar 1 satellite with an all cash offer of US$ 210 million.

EUROPE OVER 90 MILLION DVB-T RECEIVERS SOLD
According to a Position Paper issued by DigiTAG, the sale of over 90 million DVB-T receivers in Europe testifies to the overwhelming success of the DTT platform. In many homes, including those that subscribe to cable, IPTV, or satellite services, the terrestrial television platform is used for the majority of secondary television sets. In the UK, more than 10 million households, out of a total of 25 million, rely exclusively on the DTT platform. At this stage, DVB-T is de-facto present in nearly all television sets sold in EU Member-States, and legislation in several countries reinforces this market reality.

The NEC Corporation has completed the implementation of the DT in Denmark for the network operator, Broadcast Service Danmark (BSD). The switchover from analogue to digital took place on 31 October 2009. BSD operates the national terrestrial TV networks in Denmark and NEC helped to deploy the digital platform by means of its transmitter product series, DTU52 and DTL-10, which are the latest generation digital TV transmitter from NEC, providing compact design and high energy efficiency.

News Corp is set to launch a free DTT channel in January 2010, putting it in direct competition with RAI and Mediaset.

MEDIASET PREMIUM WITH 2.9 MILLION ACTIVE CARDS

FINLAND YLE RESERVES CHANNEL FOR HDTV
The Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) has decided to reserve a new channel for broadcasts of HD television programming.

KENYA KENYA INITIATES DIGITAL TV MIGRATION
In December 2009, Kenya became the second African country to begin the migration from analogue to digital broadcasting after South Africa whose migration was accelerated by FIFA World Cup finals to be held in 2010. The Government had set a deadline for full migration by the year 2012 despite the one set by the International Telecommunications Union of 2015. The phase one of transition to digital television broadcasting covers Nairobi and its environs.

The digital terrestrial TV signal has already arrived to 26 Brazilian cities, 19 of which are state capitals. From January 2010, DTT will be the only way to receive terrestrial TV broadcasts in Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Fortaleza, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. According to the Brazilian Association of Radio and Television (ABERT), some 90 million Brazilians are now able to receive the digital signal. The last year for the transmission of the analogue signal will be 2016, according to the timetable of the ministry.

Sometime in 2010, analogue broadcasts of Channels 1, 2 and 10 will be ending and Israeli viewers will have to equip themselves with a DTT decoder in order to continue reception. Experimental DTT broadcasts began in August 2009 and the decoders are available from NIS 300.

JAPAN NEARLY 70% OF JAPANESE READY FOR DIGITAL TV

CHILE MOVISTAR TO INTRODUCE MOBILE TV BROADCASTS

Movistar has announced the launch of mobile handsets that use the Japanese ISDB digital TV standard. Earlier in 2009, Chile announced it had chosen to adapt the ISDB-T standard with MPEG-4, as did Brazil in 2006, to create its own version of the Japanese standard called SBTVD. Peru and Argentina have also opted for the same path. The two phones available are the LG KB775 and the Samsung l6220. The digital TV signal available is still at a testing stage, with only limited coverage in capital Santiago. ECUADOR

With less than two years to go before the planned switchover to digital TV, 69.5% Japanese households owned digital terrestrial TVs as of September 2009, according to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. This is slightly behind the 72% diffusion target the ministry set in 2003, while representing a rise of 8.8 percentage points since the previous survey in March.

SOUTH AFRICA SENTECH FALLING BEHIND IN DTT ROLLOUT
Sentech has also revealed that it is falling behind in its DTT rollout. After the initial digital TV switch-on on 1 November 2008, the company had planned to have a 40% DTT population coverage by 31 March 2009. According to Sentech the delays in the finalisation of a frequency plan and DTT migration regulations mean that only 33% was achieved from 30 October 2008. According to Beverley Ngwenya, COO at Sentech, problems were caused by underfunding and the delay threatened the November 2011 target for switching-off analogue transmissions. Sentech is currently in the fourth phase of its DTT rollout which commenced on 1 April 2009 and will continue until 31 March 2010. The objective is to achieve 63.3% population coverage by 31 March 2010.

MEDIAFLO RECOGNISED AS MOBILE TV STANDARD

ECUADOR LIKELY TO OPT FOR ISDB-T

According to local media reports, Ecuador has decided to adopt the Japan-Brazilian ISDB-T digital TV system. The information is not yet official but it depends on the signing of protocols between the parties, but it’s taken for granted by the negotiators on both sides. As a result, Ecuador joins Chile, Brazil, Peru and Argentina in the selection of the system. Venezuela also should adopt the standard.

Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) has recognized Qualcomm’s MediaFLO technology as one of two official technologies for nationwide mobile multimedia broadcasting services in Japan. This milestone signifies that MediaFLO-enabled mobile TV services may be deployed in Japan once spectrum is made available in 2011. The only other mobile broadcast technology recognized by the MIC for this purpose is ISDB-Tmm, an evolution of Japan’s digital TV (DTV) standard, ISDB-T.

GOVERNMENT TO SUBSIDISE SET-TOP BOXES
The South African Government has put aside R2.45 billion to subsidise set-top boxes for about five million households.

HISTORY

Attisat FL 500
For many years, Greece was one of the countries in which satellite reception with smaller dishes was not really possible. Even with larger dishes the local geographical situation was of the greatest influence on the reception in many cases. In practice, many Greeks just had to do trial and error for many years. The Greeks have always participated in our discussions about satellite reception, being prepared to try any construction to find a solution. So it was just a matter of time before a company would come along and offer some real innovative products on this field. Attisat Satellite Systems is one of these very young companies, now introducing their first product. The number of direct reception satellites throughout the world has grown over the last decade. In almost every region there is at least one satellite to be found which has been built for direct reception. In the Mediterranean area these are the Astra, Arabsat, Nilesat, Hotbird and Türksat.

Attisat investigated the situation and developed a flat dish of 53cm x 53cm. A flat dish not only looks better, but in some cases it also performs better compared to normal parabolic antennas. In fact, a flat dish consists of many smaller dishes that are all catching the signal and supply it to one LNB. The efficiency of these dishes is around 85%. The aperture angle is around 25% smaller compared to parabolic antennas. Also the side lobes are about 10dB lower, preventing the interference of nearby positioned satellites. Polarisation separation was measured lower than -30dB, which is absolutely better than average. Star Sat SR-X40CI Although analogue reception is still going strong, more channels are also becoming available on digital platforms every day. Where, for example, one year ago you needed a very large dish to catch some exotic channels (Thai-TV in Europe for instance,) a digital platform now brings these channels to your home with only a very small dish and a digital receiver. For every European it has now become possible to get the latest news directly from Chile or Argentina. Italians or Arabs living in the U.S. can now keep up with the news from home, thanks to digital technology. This requires a world-wide applicable receiver, offering not only Ku-band reception but C-band as well. And for those wanting to combine both C-band

and Ku-Band into one LNB a dual polariser with servo motor comes in. This meant some extra requirements for the receiver, which has to be able to control the dual polariser as well. First of all, FTA reception is important, but the possibility to choose a pay-TV package later on must be there. Therefore, a Common Interface is necessary. This can be used in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia. In the U.S., other access systems are in use.All these requirements mentioned above are met by the new receiver from Star Sat from Dubai. Since they are still searching for a European distributor we had to get our test version directly from Dubai. The number of channels is really large: 2,900 in total (2,000 for TV / 900 for Radio.) And it supports up to 50 satellites. On the front, a green display indicates the channel ID, the programme mode and when in standby mode, it shows the time. Also located on the front is the standby button, and hidden behind a lid there are more buttons, enabling complete operation of the box. Two CA-slots for encoding, Irdeto, Viaccess, Cryproworks, Conax and Nagravision are present. At the back, terminals make it possible to connect a servo polariser. The SR-X40CI would be the ideal receiver for motormotor ised installations if a positioner was built-in as well. However it isn’t, you will need a separate one. Three scart connectors (European version) are present to connect a television set, VCR and external decoder (like for the RAI.) Additionally, the box features output in phono for both video and audio. The 0/12-Volt control signal can be used to operate external switches. A serial interface is present (RS-232, 9 pin) enabling a transfer rate of up to 38,400 baud. New firmware can be downloaded from the Internet or will be available on diskette. Even channel settings (including satellite settings) can be updated using the serial interface. A built-in modulator integrates a present terrestrial signal to the receiver’s RF output. It is software adjustable and can be set to any channel on the UHF band (for the European version in PAL D/K, B/G, I and SECAM L.) Another nice feature is the presence of a mains switch. Nera World Communicator With the bus to a crisis region? Well, the Greyhound won’t take you there, but an ISDN bus from a Norwegian manufacturer of satellite telephones just might. The Nera “WorldPhone” gave reporters, businesspeople and the military a means for voice communications from most places on earth, but there was still a need for transmitting higher bit rates with a small portable unit. So the idea for the new WorldCommunicator was born, and Nera is now introducing the result of this idea: it looks like a small flap-open laptop PC which provides an ISDN hook-up in all corners of the earth. This is possible thanks to the new strong spot beams of the latest generation of InmarInmar sat satellites. Four operative and eight back-up satellites delivering these strong beams are currently in orbit.
