MaxLinear satellite receiver powers set-top boxes for Cyfrowy Polsat

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced Cyfrowy Polsat, Poland´s satellite TV service provider, has selected the MxL541C for its new Evobox HD set-top boxes (STB), the latest product in its Evobox product line, which has been successfully implemented since 2016, the company said.

The MxL541C is a four-channel satellite receiver and Evobox HD STB makes use of the device´s very low power consumption and its Unicable support for easy installation. The receiver features Full-Spectrum Captureâ„¢ (FSCâ„¢) functionality that provides fast channel change, a feature that reduces channel tuning to less than half a second on average compared to three to four seconds on most existing high definition (HD) satellite STBs.

The Evobox HD also includes Dolby audio sound and a Wi-Fi capability for over-the-top (OTT) services, including HBO GO and the company´s own Cyfrowy Polsat GO. An intuitive user interface makes it easy to find content and to schedule viewing.

The MxL541C FSC satellite receiver supports a single satellite RF input ranging from 950MHz — 2150MHz, with four DVB-S2/S satellite demodulators and flexible transport stream outputs.

The MxL541C supports Unicable installations, which simplifies the home installation process for significantly reduced deployment costs. The device integrates DiSEqC 2.0 and FSK control interfaces to enable STBs to be connected to a wide range of satellite low-noise block (LNB) down converters, including universal, Unicable, SatCR and digital channel stacking switch (dCSS) LNBs.

Cyfrowy Polsat is the largest Polish satellite platform from Grupa Polsat, one of the largest Polish companies and a media and telecommunications group in the region. Polsat Group has about 5.8 million customers to whom the company provides 16.7 million services. More information is at http://www.grupapolsat.pl/en.
