The 7780MD series is a complete hardware-based professional DVB-S/S2 DVB-S2X (Broadcast and DSNG profiles) standard. Satellite modulator solution, able to process data rates up to 200 Mbps with high-order modulation schemes up to 64APSK. This module works conjointly with Evertz encoders and various other 7800 series modular products, all integrated in the same chassis in infinitely flexible combinations. The 7780MD modulator series rounds out a best-in-class and highly flexible encoder to uplink solution.

Monitoring parameters such as input bit rate, occupied bandwidth, output level and transmit status provide extensive information on modulator status and signal quality. These parameters as well as full control of the modulator are relayed over SNMP, for intuitive remote access using Evertz own VistaLINK® PRO SNMP monitoring and control package.


  • Full DVB-S/S2 and DVB-S2X compliant with modulation schemes available up to 64ASPK
  • Wideband output frequency range, adjustable from 950 – 2150MHz
  • Symbol rates range from 1-68 MSps
