The Luminato digital headend platform being showcased at IBC by Teleste is designed for live content processing. It receives content from various sources and descrambles and re-organises this content into an operator’s network for either CATV, OTT and/or IPTV delivery.
The chassis has been divided into six processing module slots. The module slots can be equipped with any combination of available Luminato receivers and output modules depending on the application requirements. All modules can be hot swapped and auto configured, minimising service outage. An internal switch means that the need for cabling is minimised, resulting in simple and cost-effective installation.
The chassis has two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with electrical or optical SFP modules for IP payload traffic. Both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 with SD and HD are supported.
The receivers enable flexible selection of free-to-air and scrambled services from DVB-S/S2, DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T, DVB-ASI, DVB-C or IP sources, which can be adjusted to the operator’s service line-up with the unit’s built-in advanced transport stream processing capabilities.
Satellite and terrestrial receivers are available as either quad-receiver or dual-receiver with DVB descrambling. Luminato output modules are available for DVB-ASI, COFDM and QAM and enable flexible multiplexing of SPTS and MPTS video services as well as PSI/SI table streams. Luminato comes with two integrated IP ports.
