CHAPTER 1 Product Introductions
General Description
It is an all-in-one device integrating MPEG2 encoding and DVB-T modulating to
convert video signals to DVB-T RF out for distribution network.
The signals source could be from satellite receivers, closed-circuit TV, cameras,
Blue-ray players, and antenna etc. Its output signal is to be received by a DVB-T
standard TV, DVB-T STB etc.

CHAPTER 2 Safety Instruction and Installations
Safety Instructions
WARNING: To prevent fire or electrical shock, do not expose the device to rain
or moisture.
The encoder modulator is powered with a voltage of 12V DC. The power supply
voltage must not exceed the recommended voltage, which otherwise may
cause irreparable damage to the device and the invalidation of the warranty.
• Do not replace power supply with a voltage greater than 12V DC.
• Do not connect the device to the power if the power cord is damaged.
• Do not plug the device into mains supply until all cables have been connected
• Do not cut the cord.
Avoid placing the device next to central heating components and in areas of
high humidity.
Do not cover the device with elements that obstruct the ventilation slots.
If the encoder modulator has been kept in cold conditions for a long time, keep it in
a warm room minimum 2 hours before plugging into the mains.
Mount the encoder modulator in vertical position with the connectors located on the
top side.
When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the same characteristics
as the original part. Unauthorized substitutes may result in fire, electric shock or
other hazards.
Safety check- Upon completion of any service or repairs to this device, ask the
service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the device is in proper
CVBS to DVB-T Encoder & Modulator
1. Screw the encoder modulator where you want to install it. Left 10 cm of free space
around from each other once the devices have been installed.
2. Connect cables to audio/video source. The signal source can be from a surveillance monitor, DVD, set-top box, CCTV and etc.
3. Connect cable to RF output to TV.
4. Connect the power to the wall outlet with the power adapter.

CHAPTER 3 Operations and Management
NDS3552 is controlled and managed through the key board and LCD display.
LCD Display – It presents the selected menu screen and the parameter settings.
The backlight in the display is on when the power is applied.
LED – These lights indicate the working status
• Power: It lights on when the power supply is connected.
• Alarm: It lights on when the there is error, such as the signal source loss.
• Lock: It lights on when the signal source connected and goes off when the signal
Left/Right/Up/Down buttons – Use these buttons to turn the screen pages, shift
the target items by moving the triangle, or change the parameter settings in the
program mode.
CVBS to DVB-T Encoder & Modulator
Enter – Use this button to enter a submenu or save a new setting after adjustment;
press it to start adjusting the value of certain items when the corresponding underline
flash with Up and Down buttons;
Press it to activate the hidden selections and change the setting with Up and Down
(or Left and Right) buttons.
Menu – Press this button to step back
Lock – Locking the screen / cancelling the lock state, and entering the main menu
after the initialization of the device. After pressing lock key, the system will question
the users to save present setting or not. If not, the LCD will display the current
configuration state.
When the power is connected, the LCD will start to initialize the program. The LCD
menu goes as below chart.
