The compact plug-in dongle allows the viewing of FTA and pay-TV content on smart devices
Atlanta DTH (ADTH), a supplier of cable and satellite direct-to-home (DTH) communications equipment, has commenced shipping of the DGI 1011 DTV interface.
Debuted at BroadcastAsia2018 in Singapore earlier this June, the DGI 1011 is a plug-in dongle which allows TOLKA network subscribers to view free-to-air (FTA) or pay-TV on smart devices, such as mobile phones and tablet computers.
The DGI 1011 incorporates a digital terrestrial television (DTV) tuner and demodulator, enabling the viewing of FTA content without tapping onto mobile data allowance. Compatible with Android 5 or higher, the device can receive HD or SD TV channels. Tuning frequency range is 47MHz to 862MHz, and channel bandwidth is 6MHz.
An integral CA decoder provides viewers with the option of watching “secured” DTV content on the same direct-reception basis. A wide variety of video formats can be handled, including MPEG-2 MP@HL and MP@ML, MPEG-4.2 ASP@L5 (720p), AVC/H.264 (MPEG-4.10) BP@L3, MP@L4.1 and HP@L4.1 with up to 1080p at 30fps resolution. Compatible audio decoding standards include MPEG-1, MP3 and MPEG4 AAC, with dual language support and Dolby AC3 surround-sound pass-through.
The DGI 1011 supports the ADTH TOLKA Watermark broadcast media content protection system, which generates and inserts a digital signature specific to each customer’s viewing interface. Each digital signature is encrypted “securely and invisibly” within the transmitted TV content. If suspected content is identified as an illegal copy made from a device on a DTH operator’s network, TOLKA Watermark is able to match the associated content with the signature associated with each TOLKA receiver.
