To bring to our customer hight-tech solution we were mixing together best components on the market. Heard of processing is flagship SoC (aka "System on the chip") LAN9131 from SMSC Inc. The guys in SMSC are well known for their powerfull networking components what they have proved again because LAN9131 is able to reach technological maximum from ethernet interface. Together with very popular ARM cpu and MPEG transport stream interfaces it's look like killer solution for multimedia transmission applications.

Our developmnet team has very long experiences with audio/video transmission technologies with focus on wide spreaded DVB standard family (DVB-S/S2 for satellite, DVB-C for cable and DVB-T/T2 for terestrial transmissions).

Together with very deep experiences with FPGA development it allows us to enhance final solution to support all required features. In addition it makes our solution unique.

Last but not least - the box is powered by Linux operating system, which makes it strong stable.

Love at first sight ;-)

Click for fullsize view it's true.


NessieDVB can operate in three mutual exclusive modes. But because NessieDVB has two independent satellite tuners, user can configure every tuner independently.

1. Mode "multicast"
(IPTV multicast streamer)

+Multicast mode requires setting exact tv channels on NessieDVB. User has to scan required satellite position and transponder (i.e. frequency) and preset channels, which are then constantly transmitted to the local network using multicast transmission.

+On the client side there can be used any compatible client software, like vlc (www.videolan.org), mplayer, Microsoft Windows Media Player and others.


2. Mode "vtuner"
(virtual dvb tuner or dreamtuner)

+Vtuner mode acts as remote networked DVB tuner. On the client side there is some of compatible stb or linux PC with appropriate driver. Driver forms impression for upper layer applications that DVB satellite card is connected locally.

3. Mode "DLNA"
(DLNA server)

+DLNA mode switches one or both tuners to DLNA server. User can connect with any DLNA compatible device (TV set, media player, PC, tablet or even smart phone) and receive any preconfigured channel.
