The multiswitch supports both Dynamic and Static modes. In Dynamic mode (default), up to 32 EN50607-compatible receivers (or up to 16 EN50494-compatible) connected over the Unicable output ports, can select their desired transponder and receive it over the respective User Band. In Static mode, the multiswitch outputs a fixed transponder-to-IF frequency mapping and can line up to 32 transponders (depending on the bandwidth of the desired transponders) over its Unicable output ports. This allows for an unlimited number of receivers to be connected to the switch making MDU installations substantially cheaper and simpler than ever before.
This multiswitch has 4 satellite inputs that can receive (and cascade) either 4 universal satellite IF bands (LV, LH, HV and HH) from one satellite feed, or 2 wideband satellite IF signals (Horizontal and Vertical) from two satellite feeds. A unique feature of the multiswitch firmware allows to daisy chain two units and combine their outputs with external combiner to support connection of up to 4 wideband satellite IF signals from up to four satellite feeds. It also has a Terrestrial VHF/UHF input. The terrestrial signals are combined over both output ports of the multiswitch. The Terrestrial signal is not amplified.
The multiswitch has two outputs - by default, one of the ports is configured to function as a Unicable port in dynamic mode and the second is configured to function as Universal (Legacy) and switches to Unicable as soon as it receives an EN50494 or EN50607 command.
The operating mode and configuration of each output port - unicable/universal, dynamic/static - output power level, channel bandwidth, UB numbers and protocol, center frequencies and the functionality of each of the output ports are fully programmable through Inverto?s Unicable II Programmer device and PC software tool.
The multiswitch is powered over the supplied AC/DC adapter and power inserter device allowing greater flexibility in various installation scenarios. The communication protocol between the multiswitch unit and the connected receivers is based on EN50494 and/or EN50607 and can be defined per User Band allowing operators to support installations consisting of both EN50494-only and EN50607-compatible Next Generation PVRs and HGWs. For Indoor and outdoor installations.
* Programmer not included, sold separately as an optional accessory.
