The GainMaker® Broadband Amplifier Platform includes a variety of RF amplifiers that address the divergent needs of today’s broadband networks. All GainMaker amplifiers provide superior 2-way performance and reliability combined with a user-friendly layout. All share common plug-in accessories and perform to 1 GHz in the forward path. The System Amplifiers in this family provide multiple forward RF output ports while the Line Extenders provide a single forward RF output port. The GainMaker® Broadband Amplifier Platform includes a variety of RF amplifiers that address the divergent needs of today’s broadband networks. All GainMaker amplifiers provide superior 2-way performance and reliability combined with a user-friendly layout. All share common plug-in accessories and perform to 1 GHz in the forward path. The Line Extenders in this family provide a single forward RF output port while the System Amplifiers provide multiple forward RF output ports.

The GainMaker Line Extender modules have increased gain and are mechanically compatible with previous Line Extender II and III housing bases, often enabling upgrade to higher bandwidth with no re-spacing or re-splicing. The DC power supply is modular and located in an updated housing lid for easy access. All GainMaker Line Extender modules are factory configured with reverse amplifier, diplex filters, forward interstage pads and interstage equalizer, to ensure optimal performance. For output level control over temperature, optional configurations additionally include either single-pilot Automatic Gain Control (AGC) or a Thermal compensation circuit.

The GainMaker Line Extender has a single forward RF output port and is ideally suited for providing high (bridger) level RF in the feeder network.

The System Amplifiers in this family provide multiple forward RF output ports while the Line Extenders provide a single forward RF output port.
GainMaker System Amplifiers utilize GaAsFET technology in the interstage and output gain stages for improved distortion performance.
The GainMaker System Amplifier modules have increased gain and are mechanically compatible with previous System Amplifier II, II+, and III housing bases, often enabling upgrade to higher bandwidth with no re -spacing or re-splicing. The DC power supply is modular and located in an updated housing lid for easy access. All GainMaker System Amplifier modules are factory configured with reverse amplifier, diplex filters, thermal compensation circuit, forward interstage pads, and equalizer to ensure optimal performance. Optional single-pilot Automatic Gain Control (AGC) configurations are also available.
The GainMaker High Gain Dual (HGD) System Amplifier is ideally suited for providing high (bridger) level RF to the feeder network. It provides two forward RF outputs (Main and Auxiliary), with the option to create a third RF output via use of an optional plug-in Auxiliary path signal director.
The GainMaker amplifier accessories are plug-in devices common to all GainMaker System Amplifiers and Line Extenders. They are typically field installed in accordance with system design.
The Cisco D9824 Advanced Multi Decryption Receiver (Figure 1) includes a built-in decoder that can decode an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) high definition (HD) program for analog monitoring or a standard definition (SD) down-conversion for composite. Decoding of an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC SD program is also available for analog. By supporting decryption of up to 32 Cisco PowerVu encrypted programs, this single receiver allows you to efficiently receive and distribute multiple programs.
The Cisco® D9854-I Advanced Program Receiver (Figure 1) is designed for satellite and terrestrial content distribution applications requiring Digital Video Broadcasting - Satellite (DVB-S), Digital Video Broadcasting - Satellite - Second Generation (DVB-S2) and IP reception capabilities with advanced digital outputs for digital tier program distribution. A built-in decoder can decode an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) high definition (HD) program for analog monitoring, or a standard definition (SD) down-conversion for composite. MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVCSD programs can also be decoded for analog and SDI output. D9854-I comes with RF, ASI and MPEGoIP input combined with a high-quality SDI or HD-SDI output and optional MPEGoIP output.
The PowerVu® Model D9858 Advanced Receiver Transcoder provides the ability to deliver MPEG-4 HD services to MPEG-2 CATV headends. The Model D9858 receiver extends the distribution options for MPEG-4 AVC HD from solely MPEG-4 environments to existing MPEG-2 networks. Support for simultaneous dual-channel decryption and transcoding provides the advantage of density for locations requiring more then just a single channel. The D9858 can be utilized to provide a down-converted Standard Definition MPEG-2 program instead of one or both of the available HD transcoded programs. Video and two audio outputs are available for analog down-conversion for one of the decrypted incoming MPEG-4 HD programs.
The Cisco D9859 platform  extends the distribution options for MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) HD from MPEG-4 only environments to existing MPEG-2 networks. Support for up to eight simultaneous high-definition or standard-definition (SD) channels of decryption and transcoding provides the advantage of density for locations requiring more than just a single channel. The Cisco D9859 can provide up to 8 down-converted MPEG-2 standard definition programs or MPEG-2 high-definition transcoded programs along with decrypted passthrough of the incoming programs. Video and two audio outputs are available for analog down-conversion for one of the decrypted incoming MPEG-4 high-definition programs. The base Cisco D9859 comes configured for 1 HD and 1 SD output with dynamic licensing options to upgrade the unit in the field locally or over the air using the Cisco PowerVu Network Center  system, supporting a pay-as-you-grow model. The Cisco D9865 Satellite Receiver is designed for satellite content distribution, and targets the broadcast, business TV, private networks and SMATV environment. The receiver offers the capability to receive digitally encrypted video, audio, VBI and data. It provides a cost-effective, variable-rate solution to transition existing DVB-S/MPEG-2 services to DVB-S2/MPEG-4. Additional features include IP data and RS-232 utility data.

The unit is set up via the on-screen display menu, using a handheld infrared remote control, or navigation keys on the front panel of the receiver. User-editable presets are provided for quick re-tuning to other broadcasts. The receiver also supports a Web interface and SNMP control via the Ethernet port as an option.

This receiver is capable of receiving a DVB/MPEG compliant free-to-air broadcast.

Supporting the PowerVu conditional access with DES or DVB de-scrambling, or DVB Conditional Access Module (CAM) based DVB CA systems, this receiver can be used to receive secured corporate communication of video, audio and/or data broadcast. It can also be used for secured delivery of TV programming to hotels, MDUs, homes & commercial establishments such as restaurants, stores, etc. Data outputs can be used for distribution of documents, price lists, and video files, etc. Utility data (RS-232) can be used for smaller file transfer at a slower speed. DVB MPE IP data via an Ethernet interface allows for connection to a local area network for larger file transfer and/or communication with multiple network clients.
