Why a Single Satellite Feed for a DTH and DVT-T/T2 System?
In countries deploying DTT services, DVB-T/T2 multiplexes are generated in a central headend and then distributed to the DTT transmitters. Adding a satellite feed to the mix makes sense for the following use cases:
- A telecom network is deployed to reach some of the transmitters, and satellite distribution is used to reach the remaining transmitters located in areas like mountains, deserts, etc.
- The satellite may be used as a backup for the telecom network to feed the transmitters.
This paper will outline the various considerations and benefits with respect to using a single satellite feed for DTH and DVB-T2 broadcasting.
