Ver pdf TORPEDO
DVB to IP Gateways
Repackage Digital Video Broadcasts for IP Networks
TM
Haivision’s Torpedo allows enterprises to get digital broadcast transmission onto their IP networks without the
need for re-encoding the video. Digital satellite (DVB-S/S2) and digital terrestrial (DVB-T) broadcasts contain
audio/video programming using industry standard compression (MPEG-2 or H.264) contained within MPEG-2
transport streams. The Torpedo gateway tunes to particular channels, as delivered over RF by the DVB antennas
or satellite dishes, extracts and filters the MPEG transport stream packets, and delivers the program content over
IP networks eliminating the need to re-encode. A single Torpedo can support up to 11 content channels, each rebroadcast as unicast or multicast IP video data streams.
Part of the Furnace End-to-End IP Video System
The Torpedo can be used as an independent device or as part of Haivision’s Furnace end-to-end IP video
system. Certainly obtaining digital broadcasts and transmitting them over an enterprise IP network is attractive
and efficient due to the elimination of expensive RF cabling infrastructure. However, particular challenges remain.
The enterprise may have particular requirements such as the need to control viewership, accommodate dirty or
unicast only networks, and reach users that may not have the processing power or connectivity to view the large
broadcast streams. With the Furnace, in addition to the fundamental advantages of the “zero-footprint” InStream
player and the Stingray set top box, administrators can tune to particular programming, apply Conditional Access,
encryption, and network error protection to the streams, and even groom the bandwidth via powerful transcoding
tools.
With Haivision’s Torpedo gateways and the
Furnace IP video system, enterprises and
educational institutions can efficiently bring
digital broadcast to every desktop and every
display efficiently with ultimate performance,
reach, and control.
Product Features
Haivision’s Torpedo supports SD and HD satellite (DVB-S and DVB-S2) and terrestrial (DVB-T) signals; namely
the Torpedo DVB-S2 and DVB-T. The Torpedo can be used as a standalone solution or it can be integrated as
part of Haivision’s Furnace™ IP video system. The Furnace provides for central control of all Torpedo gateways
and can groom the streams from the Torpedo gateways with encryption for media security and forward error
correction for stream resiliency, which are essential features for enterprise IP video applications.
The Torpedo DVB-T and DVB-S2 allow
digital terrestrial TV and Radio channels
(DVB-T, DVB-S or DVB-S2) to be streamed
onto an IP network. Every Torpedo can
stream up to 11 channels of live TV from a
single RF multiplex to any authorized
network computer.

For configuration and monitoring, the Torpedo comes with an on-board HTML setup browser. Through this
interface administrators can select a broadcast source and scan through available DVB-T/DVB-S2 multiplex
tables, choosing up to 11 individual channels. The Torpedo then transmits each channel as a separate IP video
unicast or multicast stream.
Other configuration and monitoring features include:
•
•

•
Multicast and Unicast address for output of video stream
Static IP address or DHCP assignment of DVB-T/DVB-S2 Torpedo unit
Supports Netmask, Gateway Address, DNS Server Addressing
Command Line Interface available over Telnet or serial RS-232/USB
SNMP: monitoring of key operating functions reported via on-board SNMP agent
Management through Furnace VF Pilot
Signal Inputs:
• Torpedo DVB-T: RF input of Digital Terrestrial Television (DVB-T); TV and radio channels via a 75ohm
IEC aerial connector
• Torpedo DVB-S2: RF input of Digital Satellite Television (DVB-S2); TV and radio channels via a 75ohm
type F female connector
• Delivers up to 11 channels from an unscrambled DVB Multiplex
• Supports both SD (DVB-T, DVB-S) and HDTV (DVB-S2)
inputs
• RF loopthrough for connection to additional Torpedo blades
The Torpedo is available as a standalone appliance, each supporting
multiple channels, or as a blade within Haivision’s 3U rack mountable
chassis. Each 3U chassis can hold up to nine Torpedo blades, any
combination of the DVB-T and DVB-S2 models. Each blade has web
browser and RS232/USB control interface and is built around real-time
embedded firmware. The chassis also includes a Power Supply Unit
(PSU) to convert the electrical main input to low voltage DC power for
each of the processor blades. Main voltage input to the rack is via an
IEC connector on the rear.
