By | November 8, 2011

Unicable is single cable distribution, which enables the delivery of broadcast programming to multiple users over a single coaxial cable, and eliminates the numerous cables required to support consumer electronics devices such as twin-tuner satellite receivers TBS6981, quad-tuner card  TBS6984 ,CI TV tuner TBS6928 and other TBS receivers.

Single cable distribution technology enables one coaxial cable from the antenna equipment to multiple tuners, to provide independent tuning across the whole range of satellite reception for each tuner.

  • Up to 8 different satellite receivers (tuners) per single cable drop
  • Fully transparent with regard to the transmitted signals
  • Cost efficient connection of multiple receivers in a home via a single cable
  • Significant cost savings for new installations and upgrades
  • Allows usage of existing cables installations turning them into DTH installations.
  • Unicable  Accessories – ensure trouble-free and effective installations
