Satellite Master Antenna Television, generally known as SMATV in the Hospitality industry, is a single antenna satellite TV distribution system (either L-Band or headend) system used to send television signal throughout a multi-room hotel, dorm, assisted living or healthcare property.

How many channels can you have in a SMATV headend system?

You can distribute as many channels as you have modules in your head end system. Every TV or display in every room will receive all the channels.

  • Each standard definition (SD) SMATV headend rack can deliver 12-36 channels.
  • Each module in an HD headend system can deliver 12-24 channels.

The Industry Standards for SMATV HD Head End Systems

The Pro:Idiom encrypted COM2000 and COM1000 Hotel TV Systems from Technicolor are the most commonly used SMATV headend systems for the delivery of high definition DIRECTV programming.
