Antenna DVB-S/S2 Signal Analysis

DVB-C Signal Analysis

DVB-C Signal Analysis provides power level, MER, BER, & constellation measurements. Use the Error Vector Spectrum (EVS) function to quickly find interference signals beneath the QAM mask. The frequency domain EVS tool helps measure narrow- band interference signals, while the time domain EVS function is used for wide-band interference signals such as LTE interference.

Time Domain EVS Measurement

DVB-C2 Signal Analysis

The GAOTek High Performance TV Signal Analyzer also supports the DVB-C2 digital broadcast standard, providing power level, MER, BER, and constellation measurements (including 64, 256, 1024, and 4096 QAM).
