  • Next generation of the DTA-2139B with added support for ATSC 3.0 and ATSC VSB. Combinations are supported, too!
  • Twelve tuners and demodulators, each tunable to any frequency in the VHF or UHF band, and each outputting the entire stream.
  • Each receiver provides an indication of lock status, RF level and MER for that channel.


  • 24/7 continuous compliancy monitoring of an entire cable or terrestrial network, using Xpect Mosaic or another monitoring solution.
  • Receiving all (or many) services in a free-to-air terrestrial network and remultiplexing them to a cable network.
  • Creating a mosaic of all services on a cable or terrestrial network.

Block Diagram

The RF input signal is amplified and split, feeding twelve receiver sections. Each receiver channel consists of a chip tuner, chip demodulator and an optimized DMA controller.
