An optional ENCODER is used to generate ASI streams by multiplexing video from the Studio, which can be provided in SDI or HDMI format. The output of the link is ASI or IP to be fed directly to the TV transmitter.
Each link consists of an indoor unit connected via cable to an outdoor unit. The outdoor unit connects directly to the parabolic dish antenna. Frequency agility is available in most models.
The links are available in a variety of options, which include the operating frequency band, input signal format, type of modulation for transmission, number of TV programs, transmitter power, antenna size, and operating voltages.
