In addition to the right planning, the most important quality factor in the construction of multi-switch systems is reliable components. To ensure best quality and highest reliability, POLYTRON's PSQ multi-switches are manufactured in Germany.

The PSQ multiswitch series contains high quality 5, 9, 13 and 17 single and cascade multiswitches as well as matching amplifiers. The POLYTRON multiswitches can be used to realize powerful and flexible satellite-based reception and distribution systems.

The devices convince with their technical data, e.g. with high isolations of the lines and with a low energy consumption of the switching power supplies.

Headends for the simultaneous conversion of decrypted and free-to-air programs

8x DVB-S/S2, DVB-T/T2, DVB-C in DVB-T with 4 CI

The new compact headend series models PCU 8112 and PCU 8122 allow the combined conversion of encrypted and free-to-air channels.
The input signal can be selected individually for each of the eight inputs: DVB-S/S2, DVB-T/T2 or DVB-C. Four of the eight channels are equipped with a CI interface to decode encrypted signals. The headends convert the processed signals optionally into DVB-C or DVB-T.
The compact headends PCU 8112 and 8122 are the ideal choice when free-to-air channels and PAY-TV content are to be combined.
Application example:
Decrypted local channels combined with foreign language programs.  
Application of mixed reception:
Combination of satellite reception with local terrestrial programs.
