TV Distribution:

Traditionally television distribution has been analogue to homes and hotel guestrooms.

A SMATV System is a head-end system, which basically transforms your property to it's own private cable company. IF Signals from Dish Antenna is fed through a Head end system which converts IF to RF, then these RF signals are amplified and distributed. (Every channel has it's own dedicated receiver and is then modulated to a particular channel. These channels are then combined together and are broadcasted directly to your television jack without any additional equipment within the unit. Programming can literally be hand-picked to fit the demographics of the building and more importantly, to fit budgets). With SMATV systems, the end user just plugs his TV into the cable jack on the wall and automatically has programming with no need for a receiver or “set top box” in the unit. There's no down time for new residents, they simply plug in and watch TV, with no need to call the cable company for installation and scheduling. At any time, SMATV systems can be expanded or even down-sized to meet you're changing needs.
