Satellite Modulators
The Gemini modulator provides DVB-S/S2/S2X, DSNG and Turbo functionality and includes ASI and IP inputs and both IF and L-band outputs.

Our Hercules & Defender multi-channel modulators are designed to generate multiple channels out of a single one rack-mount unit (1RU) chassis. One of SED’s multi-channel satellite modulators can replace as many as 16 traditional modulators. The small form factor offers significant savings in capital costs, reduced operating expenses & other benefits.

Our Itus modulator redundancy switch provides 1:1 modulator L-band redundancy switching for our modulator products.  Itus includes our patented Intelligent Switching mode functionality.  The narrow-band SDTS modulator supports the Inmarsat SES28B standard, while our Beacon Generator provides an L-band output that can be frequency converted to the band you need.
SED Satellite Modulators









All of our satellite modulators feature a flexible FPGA-based design that can be leveraged to deliver custom modulators for non-standard encoding and modulation types.  email hidden; JavaScript is required to learn more.

Cable Headend Modulators
SED can provide modulator solutions for your cable headend needs. SED’s programmable designs allow customized cable modulators for your product and design requirements, including digital video QAM or DOCSIS 3.1 OFDM modulator requirements for HFC networks or MDU applications.
