What is SMATV


SMATV (Satellite Master Antenna Television System), A community Distribution system for signals received from multiple satellites, Terrestrial channels & Radio. These signals will be mixed with the help of “MULTISWITCH” and distributed with a single and separate cable to each household in the community building.
The size of the network varies small to large. This may be a small 5 floor building with 50 subscribers or 50 floor building with 1,200 subscribers. For huge buildings were coaxial cables is inappropriate, fiber optic technology can incorporate with SMATV equipments. With modern equipments any type of SMATV network can be constructed with ease.

The advantage of the SMATV is, all homes in the community-building can share the installed satellite antenna no need a separate one for each user. Also when there is any new channels available in the connected satellites the subscriber can tune himself no need to purchase new equipment where in CATV huge investment required with technical expertise to add the new channels.

In a traditional CABLE TV network there is limitation of available channels(max 100 to 104) But In a SMATV network with a 17 input system the number of channels is huge (4000+) The user can select the channels they want from the connected satellite dish.

Advantage of the Analogue CATV over SMATV is, STB or Receiver not required to view the channels but in the SMATV a A Satellite receiver is required. (note: in the Digital CATV system a STB/cable receiver is required)
