The AZ910 is a state-of-the-art satellite demodulator designed for broadcast contribution, Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) and Primary distribution applications over satellite in full compliance with the DVB standards.

In its default configuration, the AZ910 is capable to demodulate one MPEG transport stream in DVB-S, DVB-DSNG or DVB-S2 mode and to interface with terrestrial broadcast network through a standard ASI interface. Optionally, an optical ASI interface can be added.

To simplify the migration towards IP, the AZ910 is also available with DualFlow (combined ASI+Ethernet interface), providing broadcasters the following capabilities:
- The ability to demodulate Multistream and VCM carriers, and to output up to two transport streams and one IP stream simultaneously.
- The ability to interface (via a GbE output) with equipment or networks that accept transport streams carried over IP with the RTP protocol.
- The ability to receive IP services (fi le transfers, VoIP, TCP services…) simultaneously or alternatively with transport stream(s). In this case the demodulator also performs the extraction of the IP packets encapsulated in MPE or XPE mode.

The AZ910 has a dual L-band input (950-2150 MHz). The active input is selected by the user and can provide DC power and frequency band selection signals compatible with most professional and commercial LNBs. Optionally, one L-band input can be replaced by an IF (50-180 MHz) input.

The AZ910 is equipped with an adaptive equalizer to compensates linear distortion of the transmission channel.

The integrated Noise & Distortion Estimator tool provides an accurate reading of the satellite link margin even in presence of non-linear distortion and allows the user to fi nd the optimum input back-off setting very easily for 16APSK or 32APSK operation, whether or not non-linear predistortion is applied.
