Silicon tuners have entered the broadcasting scene more than ten years ago with one of the earliest application in Satellite STB. However since the beginning of last year more applications and even TV are using Silicon tuners. This webinar will explain the reasons that drive this implementation. It will highlight the benefits compared to the traditional tuner module.
The webinar will also touch on the importance of the tuner and will focus on the tuner parameters that are essential to meet system requirements. To most people, the most important parameter is the sensitivity and linearity of the tuner is often neglected. The webinar will enable you to understand why linearity is also crucial especially for operators.
