4.1 Simple hotel IPTV solution

It is a demand of analog signal to digital signal with 48 channels HD ávideo streaming program and 30 channels SD video streaming program for 120 rooms. The customer needs a low cost solution, so we recommend as below:

1). for the headend equipment:

The signal received from RF demodulators & decoder and output with HDMI/AV. For the video encoder, we used MagicBox HD316, which can support 16 channels CVBS+HDMI input simultaneously. Calculation is as follows:

HD: 48CH /16=3 sets

SD: 30CH/16≈2 sets

For the client’s requirements (48 HD and 30 SD channels project), 3 sets MagicBox HD316 is enough.


Meanwhile, the optional solution is using high quality broadcasting encoder: ENC3184 SD encoder and ENC3381 HD encoder. This is suitable for carrier grade operator who has more demand in performance.

HD: 48CH/8=6 sets

SD: 30CH/8≈4 sets

4.2 Resort hotel IPTV solution

  The system was complex as it was used in resort hotel where covered hotel, hospital, shopping, villa, etc. The signal sources are mainly from DVD player, monitor video signal (cctv signal), DVB-T RF, etc. As the buildings are dispersed, so transmission of all program were wireless and LAN. In the Network center we only need to set up the management server, IPTV middleware VOD server, IPTV gateway and other necessary equipment. The solution contained 200 program and we formulated special IPTV service for hotels, hospital, and departments to meet different demands.


Conceptual framework:


4.3 Hotel IPTV + Mini CMTS solution

It is a typical Hotel IPTV + Mini CMTS solution. The client’s requirements are as follows:

70 HD channels IPTV system exists, now want to share these 70 HD IPTV channels to 300 rooms of the hotel. The hotel already has the coaxial cable distribution. The requirement is users in each room can see the IPTV channels and sharing the other IPTV functions. In order to save the cost and take advantage of the existing coaxial cable distribution. In this solution, we introduce the Mini CMTS to firstly convert IP signals to Coaxial RF signal by using the Mini CMTS, and distribute all the channels via coaxial cable. At the room’s side, we can use a Cable Modem to convert coaxial RF signal to IP signal.  

Equipment configuration:

DB-CMTS8100_1RU CMTS: 1 set

Dibsys DOCSIS Cable Modem: 300 sets


Advantages: with the application of Mini CMTS and Hotel Cable TV system, customers can also get a more pleasant experience in the hotel.


4.4 Common hotel IPTV solution



Part 1: source receiver

In this solution, the signal received from antenna and dish. 



Part 2: Control room


This part is arranged for supporting IPTV server and encoding process. We use ENC3184 for SD channels encoding and ENC3381 for HD channels encoding. Calculation is as follows:

50CH/8=6.25 sets

40CH/8=5 sets

So there are 7 sets ENC3184 and 5 sets ENC3381, totally 12 sets encoder.

All programs are converged to Core switch and distributed to each floor switch.

Part 3: Terminal

We arranged one switch every three floors, add ground floor, it totally needed 6 sets of switch. And at every floor, we put corresponding number of wifi, LAN ports, and IP TV data port. There are 16 floors and one ground floor.
