MERlin is a self-contained receiver for continuous off-air demodulation and monitoring of DVB-T2 and DVB-T signals. MERlin monitors input RF modulation parameters and signal performance metrics including Modulation Error Ratio (MER) and Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) status.
The product allows a template to be generated, which is used to compare the received DVB-T2 signal against expected parameters. If the received DVB-T2 signal is different to a stored template, an alarm can be generated. Seven fixed templates and eight programmable templates are provided. The fixed templates correspond to the UK transmission standards for DVB-T2.
Designed for high reliability for use at remote sites, MERlin combines technical performance and versatility with excellent value in a 1RU package.
