The new SC1501A can receive both the direct signals from the satellites and the retransmission of satellite signals through cable systems (IF pass-through, transmodulation) for 4K and 8K broadcasting.

Socionext has also developed prototype receiver systems equipped with the SC1501A, one of which will be used in the experimental retransmission of Advanced Wide-Band Digital Satellite Broadcasting thorough the cable TV system, jointly conducted by Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK), KDDI Corporation (KDDI), Jupiter Telecommunications Co., Ltd. (J:COM), and Japan Digital Serve Corporation (JDS).

Testing and prototyping is underway across the industry, aiming for the popularization of the broadcasting formats by 2020.

A digital receiver system that can handle various kinds of transmission schemes is essential to promote the wider use of 4K and 8K broadcasting. Socionext has developed SC1501A, a demodulator IC that is compatible both with the Advanced Wide-Band Satellite Broadcasting.
