New compact headend WISI OH 16 SC

User-friendly product innovation for efficient and powerful satellite TV reception and distribution in small CATV networks, medium-sized residences and the hospitality industry

WISI Communications GmbH & Co. KG (WISI) has extended its product portfolio by OH 16 SC, an innovative and easy to use transmodulator capable of receiving 16 DVB-S/S2 transponders and converting them into 16 QAM TV channels. The new compact headend comes in a slim 1 RU 19” box with dimensions of 440mm x 44mm x 260mm. It can be installed in a rack or cabinet or directly on the wall. OH 16 SC is best suited for small CATV networks, medium-sized residences, high rise buildings, recreational facilities, hospitals and hotels.

The compact headend OH 16 SC is easy to install and offers a lot of interesting features for the operator. OH16 SC features 4 integrated input switching matrices which support input splitting, loop through and operation with external 17 path multi-switches. Having access to up to four different satellite positions over a hundred HD/SD and radio programs can be received, transmodulated and distributed. Network integration is possible via DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) that supports remote maintenance and programming via the web browser without any additional software. WISI has created a user-friendly set-up of the headend. It automatically generates an IP address for the connected PC and by entering "OH16" or the programmed IP address the operator has access to the headend through the web browser.

In a service case the operator gets an alert message sent to his registered e-mail address via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for network enabled devices. The LCN (Logical Channel Numbering) function allocates a number to each service in the headend and compiles a channel list. This avoids time consuming programming of each single end device connected to the TV network. PID filtering enables central channel deletion. This is useful for network operators interested in filtering out sole advertising channels or other undesired services. The filtering function also helps if the data rate of a satellite transponder is too large for a complete transmodulation to DVB-C. The data rate can be decreased by excluding some of the channels. It is also equipped with an F connector to feed through FM radio channels to the distribution.

OH 16 SC is a perfect match for all operators looking for a powerful compact headend solution with an easy to handle conception that only needs little space.
