SAT-IF signal distribution

Flexible and easy connection of large numbers of subscribers

Thanks to today's distribution technology, a single satellite antenna can supply entire apartment blocks with the programme variety of different satellites. The Kathrein system components for satellite IF distribution systems can be used to implement all kinds of antenna projects – from small single-family homes to large multi-user systems. Our multi-switches and amplifiers are made in Germany, almost without exception. We also attach great importance to the environmental aspect of our products. Our devices and systems are, among other things, very energy-efficient, not only in operation but also in standby mode.

Using single-cable technology to achieve full programme variety

In single-cable or Unicable technology, multiple receivers are connected to a single cable. In contrast to common single-cable solutions with a limited choice of channels, our Unicable solution provides you with the full programme variety in best HD and 4k quality. Special Unicable-compatible multi-switches or LNBs (“Low Noise Blocks”) serve as distribution units.

Background information: Instead of transmitting a complete frequency band, a specific wavelength in the range from 950 MHz to 2150 MHz is available to each receiver. The receiver uses special signals to inform the multi-switch or LNB of the corresponding frequency of the desired TV programme. In principle, all receivers that comply with the European standard EN 50494 can be used in a single-cable system.

A SAT>IP server turns your smartphone into a TV set

In addition to conventional satellite reception equipment such as receivers and TV sets, Internet-based devices are becoming increasingly important. Thanks to our SAT>IP solution, it has become very easy to receive top-quality TV programmes on your tablet, smartphone or even game console. This is made possible by the SAT>IP communication protocol, which converts the satellite signals into Internet-enabled signals and transmits them to the respective Internet-enabled receiver. The signals can be transmitted via cable as well as wirelessly.
