Set Top Box manufacturers broadcasters and cable operators are providing new advanced services to customers. These services require new consumer devices that have embedded DVRs HD tuners advanced video decoders data broadcast capability and telephony/internet connection to support advanced service offerings. The tasks of software engineering and the timescale for design verification and conformance testing are increasing significantly with this advanced functionality.

RTX130B is designed to meet these needs for:
MPEG digital TV Set Top Box Integrated Digital TV and MPEG consumer device software development
Equipment manufacturers and broadcast operators who need a solution for design evaluation and testing in their MPEG transmission environment

RTX130B Product Information
In the digital terrestrial broadcasting and cable environment powerful RF-modulated signal generation functionality is required in a portable form factor for design test and maintenance.

The RTX130B QAM & VSB RF Signal Generator offers a flexible affordable solution for design evaluation and conformance testing of digital video products conforming to the DVB-C / ITU-T J.83 standards annex A B C and ATSC (8VSB) standards for digital terrestrial & cable TV systems.

The RTX130B RF MPEG Signal Generator provides this functionality:
Supports ITU-T J.83 standards annex A (DVB-C) B C and ATSC VSB for modulation of streams played from disk
QAM modulation mode*1 of 16 64 256 and 8 VSB
Frequency: 50 to 860 MHz in 12.5 KHz steps
36/44 MHz IF output
RF Output Level 45-58 dBmV in 1 dB Steps
DVB-ASI/SMPTE310M & SPI transport stream input/output for recording and playout from hard disk
With the RTX130B you can select the combination of RF modulation options required when ordering and can add further modulation options when needed protecting your original investment
*1 Not all constellations are available in all QAM modes.

The RTX130B is the optimum tool for design and evaluation of consumer QAM & VSB equipment such as set-top boxes and integrated televisions devices requiring a directly modulated RF input. The RTX130B can also be used as a signal source for end-to-end broadcast system evaluation and maintenance.

As an integrated solution RTX130B removes the need to purchase a separate transport stream generator QAM & VSB modulator and an up-converter to generate QAM & VSB modulated RF test signal. DVB-SPI and ASI/SMPTE310M interfaces are also provided as standard allowing recording and play out of MPEG-2 Transport Streams.

The RTX130B offers continuous error free transport stream looping for long duration play out and PCR jitter insertion for stressing MPEG product designs. Users can continuously loop test streams including updating of all timestamps continuity counters and time tables.

Ethernet network control functionality enables remote control of functions like Play Record Clock Rate and PCR Jitter Insertion using the SCPI (Standard Control for Programmable Instruments) command set allowing easy integration into ATE and automated broadcast environments.

An optional scheduler application enables the RTX130B to be used as a simple MPEG stream server for pre recorded broadcast and manufacturing test signal transmission.
