Newtec (ST Engineering) MDM6100 Broadcast Satellite Modem

The Newtec MDM6100 Satellite Modem is the next-generation DVB compliant modem specifically designed for broadcast applications. The modem supports the DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X, next to the legacy DVB-S and DVB-DSNG standards in order to achieve barrier-breaking efficiency. The unit can act as a MPEG Transport Stream modulator, demodulator or modem.

As a modulator, it is best suited for broadcast direct-to-home, primary distribution to headends and contribution of television and radio content. As a modem or demodulator, it is typically installed in head-ends or at both sides of a contribution link. The MDM6100 can be used in conjunction with set-top boxes, professional Integrated Receiver Decoders (IRDs) or professional satellite demodulators.

Key Features

  • Single Transport Stream modem with optional data stream via MPE encapsulation/decapsulation
  • Baud rate range: 256 kbaud – 72 Mbaud

  1. Exceptional jitter recovery on TS over IP input with SMPTE 2022 FEC
  2. Redundant optional ASI or GbE interfaces with support of redundant IP network configurations
  3. User configurable alarm table for device redundancy switching
  4. Input TS redundancy switch based upon null packet stuffing exceeding a set limit
  5. Built-in TS Analyser with
    – TR101 290 priority 1 and 2 error monitoring
    – PID table with rate and PCR jitter measurements
    – Continuity Count error monitoring per PID
  1. Receiver Non-Linear Post Compensation (NLPC 2.0) for a better link margin in case of multiple carriers per transponder, reduces intermodulation interference
  2. Accurate link margin monitoring through the use of NoDE (Noise & Distortion Estimator) tool
  3. RFI reduction using optional DVB RF Carrier ID (DVB-CID) and NIT table CID (default)
  4. Input rate recovery based upon PCR timestamps
  5. Automatic TS rate adaptation
  6. L-band monitoring output
  7. Market-leading RF purity and performance
  8. Programmable amplitude slope equalizer
  9. PRBS generator for link performance tests
  10. Output level adjust for cable loss compensation
  11. Optional high stability internal clock reference
  12. Optional dual AC power supply
