The Multi Dwelling Unit is a customized solution for connecting multiple TVs within the same multi storied building with a single or two Dish Antennae to receive Direct-to-Home (DTH) service. Common dish is installed on the terrace of the multi storied building which gives signal to DTH STBs connected to TV sets in multi storied building. Once the dish is installed, residents have the choice to subscribe for the DTH services.
Direct-to-Home entertainment is based on the concept of receiving the services directly on your television from a satellite thru DTH box. A small dish is installed in your home to receive the signals from the satellite. However, one connection needs one dish to receive the satellite signals. This leads to many dishes in any multi storied building having many subscribers.
MDU is the solution that reduces the number of dishes to one or two in a multi storied building for all the subscribers in the building.
MDU is a centralized network consisting of multi switches and amplifiers for distributing the signal received by one or two Dish antennas.
The Dish Antenna captures the signals and transmits through multi switches on to the individual STBs placed at subscriber's end. The setup is customized depending on the number of connections and the connectivity structure of the building.
Each and every customer in the building does not have to have a separate Dish Antenna to receive DTH services. Additional dish is not required to be installed for any additional subscriber in the building. It is easy to maintain one or two dish antenna in a building.
