Vyper 7 – DVB Satellite Modulator

DTV Innovations


The Vyper 7 is a state-of-the-art standards based satellite modulator producing a modulated carrier in full compliance with the DVB-S, DVB-DSNG, DVB-S2 and, when appropriately licensed, DVB-S2x (broadcast and DSNG profiles) standards.  The Vyper 7 will support data rates from 100 kbps to 200 Mbps using the ASI inputs and from 200 kbps to 200 Mbps using the TSoIP inputs with symbol rates of 0.05 to 72 Mbaud (i.e. 72 MHz with a roll off of 5%).

With its available bit rates, MODCODs, flexible inputs and outputs, you’ll never find yourself wanting with the Vyper 7 DVB modulator.   Provided that the rest of your outside broadcast van or satellite uplink truck is up to it, you’ll be able to support a premier sporting event, requiring the transmission of a high data rate multiplex and advanced modulation, just as easily as a local television news broadcast using 8PSK modulation and a fraction of a satellite transponder. 

Although ASI has long been the standard output for most broadcast video encoders, the industry is slowly standardizing on IP for many reasons.  The Vyper 7 supports both ASI and TSoIP on Ethernet inputs to ensure that your investment will continue to provide a return no mater which encoders you decide to purchase in the future.

The Vyper 7 is ideal for Satellite Sports Contribution, Satellite News Contribution, and Multiplexed Video Contribution including applications requiring the use of a full satellite transponder.

The Vyper 7 provides a user-friendly embedded web browser enabling full configuration of the modulator without the need to be physically located with the unit.  Input signal management, selection of DVB-S, DVB-S2, and DVB-S2X, MODCOD and control of the RF output mute/unmute function can all be controlled via a web browser.  The GUI also offers monitoring of the input stream format and bit rate.
