Teleste has launched a dense QAM module to add to the the Luminato headend platform at last month’s IBC2017 event in Amsterdam, Netherlands, which is media, entertainment and technology expo.

This dense QAM module is said to provide a compact edge QAM platform for Cable TV operators, allowing up to 144 QAM channels in one RU Luminato chassis. High-quality QAM modulation with agile up-conversion provides smooth broadcast delivery over an HFC network and ensures the availability of high-performing video services for years to come.

The key features of the dense QAM module in a nutshell include:
• High-density modulation with 24 QAM channels
• 1200 Mbps payload
• Flexible channel allocation fits any of the six Luminato slots
• 24 independent multiplexers

The module is part of the Teleste Luminato headend platform, designed to offer operators easy and flexible options for content reception and live content processing.

Teleste commented, “The Luminato gives the user freedom in application design and allows development of services that fulfill customers’ expectations of an attractive and entertaining TV experience. Due to its modular structure, the platform can support any combination of available modules.”

The integrated Luminato platform is deployed by cable TV operators and telcos as well as hospitality service providers of varying sizes and feature demands. The supplier also claimed, “Out of all the devices sent out from our factory, less than 0.3% have ever needed any hardware repair, which proves the platform’s long lifetime and high reliability.”
