to detect any difference be-
tween input signal and out-
put signal – even after look-
ing at every video detail
long and hard.
One thing you should take
into account is a lag time of
about one second that is re-
quired for the modulator to
process the input signal and
create the required output
During active use the
display of the new Satson
modulator always shows the
currently used frequency as
well as the current resolu-
tion of the output signal.
Thanks to the Lock but-
ton directly on the device
it is possible to block any
outside interference with
internal settings, this way
preparing the modulator for
hassle-free 24/7 operation.
It did not make a dif-
ference which source we
chose, the signal was al-
ways processed correctly,
modulated into a flawless
DVB-T signal on the UHF or
VHF band and given out ac-
cording to our pre-defined
parameters (PIDs, service
name, network ID, etc.).
By the way, the modulator
works with all frequencies
between 50 and 860 MHz.
As you can see on the
screenshots for this test
report, the HD-MOD-001T
delivers an immaculate and
error-free signal with the
exact user-defined output
level. The manufacturer has
even thrown in an integrated
RF input, which can be used
to also add a signal from an
existing terrestrial reception
system to the modulator, so
that a maximum number of
channels is available.
All of our testers at TELE-
audiovision thoroughly en-
joyed working with the new
Satson DVB-T modulator
and we can wholeheartedly
recommend this product for
distributing HD signals via
existing coax cables in your
house or apartment. You
want the signal from your
living room satellite receiv-
er in the bedroom as well?
Or how about watching the
feed from the camera at the
front door on your TV?
Not a problem any longer
thanks to the HD-MOD-
001T, which will distribute
all of this and a lot more via
DVB-T using your existing
coax cables.
Thanks to a low power
consumption of approxi-
mately 12.5 W you can ex-
pect an annual consumption
of around 109 kWh, which is
almost negligible given the
wide range of profession-
al features offered by this
The HD-MOD-001T is a versatile and per-
fectly useful DVB-T modulator. Using the
QPSK, QAM16 or QAM64 modulations with an
MPEG-2 audio and video signal it offers three
different input types (YUV, HDMI and CVBS)
and flawlessly deals with HDTV signals up
to 1080i. Satson has designed this modula-
tor for professional and permanent use and
almost every single nook and cranny smacks of top-notch
build quality and ease of use. The video quality of the output
signal is impressive and the time lag due to signal proces-
sing and encoding is comparatively short at approximately
one second.
Going by the manufacturer’s specifications the HD-MOD-
001T is not really suitable for unheated locations that are
somewhat exposed to the weather (such as attics or base-
ments, for example). Front-end operation and configuration
using the available buttons right on the device are a little
cumbersome at times, but thanks to the RJ-45 network inter-
face there is an easy and pleasant way out.
