Audio over Satellite (DVB-S/S2)

Audio over Satellite, DVB-S, DVB-S2 solution

Clearbox Systems offers a complete DVB-S and DVB-S2 System Solution for Professional Audio, RDS and IP-Transmission. The system includes encoding, multiplexing, modulation (up-link) and professional DVB Satellite Receivers, DSR01, FlexDSR02+, FlexDSR04+ (IRDs for down-link) that have been developed especially for professional audio and RDS decoding.

The Satellite In-Band Remote Control (SIRC) System allows for the entire system to be managed remotely from a central location.

  • has an SD-card based internal memory capacity to facilitate additional backup solutions and transmission scenarios
  • integrates automatic weight balancing of quality parameters, including failover switching to alternative input sources (Satellite, IP, ASI, SD Card)
  • is complemented by seamless audio fading between sources
  • offers SIRC – a remote system management tool in-band satellite link
  • quality manufacture and renowned reliability

Hybrid Satellite/IP Network for Transmission Redundancy

Another approach to increase the reliability of operational networks is to add a second transmission line based on another technology, for example Audio over IP. The FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ both offer the possibility to receive a stream via satellite or IP, easily adding an IP backup to an existing satellite transmission system.

Device redundancy (1 + 1) for Audio over Satellite

Further resilience can be achieved by adding redundancy in the transmission chain. Either redundant power supplies (for the IP-8e audio encoder), or redundant encoders and modulators, with the incorporation of a 1 + 1 switch.
