20 July 2009, will change the performance of Ukrainian technical multiplex MediaTransit available with Sirius satellite 4 (4.8E). Some channels in the package (eg, English Club TV) report the change of communication parameters on their antennas. Ukrainian MediaTransit already the second time this year will change the frequency, the move took place last April 1.

Last change "April" resulted in greater fluctuations in signal across the package - there are some moments that Ukrainian transponder with great difficulty manage to answer even for a 80 cm dish! Before 1 April operator parameters used 12.717GHz, pol. V, SR: 23500, FEC: 3 / 4, and such problems were less dokuczliwe.

According to notices issued on the channel occasionally English Club TV, the new parameters are dictated by the technical work on the satellite in order to ensure a better signal for the station. It is suspected that the change is due to economic reasons - the operator to pay unnecessarily unused capacity, reduces the value of Symbol Rate. The more it is possible that the package will probably leave the Ukrainian CITI, who recently zameldował on satellite Amos 2 (4.0W).

The current package MediaTransit parameters:

Satellite: Sirius 4 (4.8E)
frequency: tp. EG6 (12.728GHz, pol. V, SR: 19720, FEC: 3 / 4)

The new parameters from 20 July:

Satellite: Sirius 4 (4.8E)
frequency: tp. EG6 (12,731 GHz, pol. V, SR: 15300, FEC: 3 / 4)

In MediaTransit available are 11 television channels for Ukraine. Some of them (English Club TV, Turburo, CITI, Menu, TV, Shopping TV, People, GoldBerry) will apply the standard MPEG-2 compression and the second part (2T, Kiko, Planeta, Svit) higher compression MPEG-4. The transmission package takes place in the standard DVB-S and QPSK modulation. Air stations in the MPEG-4 are transmitted to the needs of the Ukrainian platform Viasat Ukraine.
