Newtec MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem


The Newtec MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem is the next generation DVB compliant modem specifically designed for broadcast applications. The modem supports the updated DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X, next to the legacy DVB-S and DVB-DSNG standards, as well as Newtec S2 Extensions in order to achieve barrierbreaking efficiency. The unit can act as a modulator, demodulator or modem.

As a modulator, it is the best fit for broadcast direct-to-home, primary distribution to head-ends and contribution of television and radio content. As a modem or demodulator, it is typically installed in head-ends or at both sides of a contribution link. The MDM6100 can be used in conjunction with set-top boxes, professional IRD’s or professional satellite demodulators.
