Digital services enhance your system by offering multiplex premium channels, international programming and HDTV. These services require a set top box and may be offered in a variety of distribution methods including:
• QAM – This option utilizes the existing 860mhz cable plant to transmit the entire Dish Network channel offering. An analog system may be used in conjunction with QAM to reduce the amount of set top boxes required. This may be the preferred method for “garden style” apartments.
• L-band – This option requires up to four 2 gig distribution cables and amplifiers to feed from the satellite dish, or dishes, to the individual IDF closets where the drops terminate. At these frequencies, longer cable runs may pose problems with signal loss and tilt. This system works very well in midrise and highrise applications.
• L-band Fiber Optic – Dish Network has a fiber optic system that utilizes wave division multiplexing to combine up to four satellite feeds onto one strand of fiber. As the cost of fiber components continues to decrease, this may become the preferred distribution method in many applications
