SiTune has become first to market with a tuner that supports Japan’s new advanced wide band digital satellite broadcasting standard ISDB-S3 required to broadcast 8K Super Hi-Vision.

Situnechip 14nov2017Japan’s broadcasters are preparing to transmit 8K programming over satellite ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, driving demand for new 8K TV sets. Additionally, Blu-ray recorders will also be equipped with 8K tuners giving customers' simultaneous ability to record multiple 8K, 4K and full HD videos on their recorders.

Production samples are now available of SiTune’s innovative STN6528 tuner which, as well as 8K, also supports traditional ISDB-T/J.83 QAM terrestrial/cable service and ISDB-S BS/CS digital Full HD and 4K satellite broadcasts.

The STN6528 receives one satellite signal in the 950-3224MHz spectrum and one terrestrial/cable signal in the UHF/VHF spectrum from 44MHz to 1002MHz. The STN6528 provides a low power consumption solution as well as a low bill of material (BOM) footprint for Japanese TV and Blu-ray recorder markets, enabling what the company terms “the smallest possible TV tuner modules capable of supporting 2 (1T/1S), 4 (2T/2S) or 6 (3T/3S) channel TV reception”.

SiTune’s STN6528 Tuner plus Socionext’s SC1501A Demodulator is the best solution for 8K TV designs in Japan,” said Kenichi Katada, marketing manager for system-on-a-chip company Socionext. “With the release of production samples, SiTune and Socionext are ready to support TV manufacturers, Blu-ray recorder makers, set-top boxes, and module producers as new products capable of receiving 8K satellite broadcast are designed and developed for production.”
