tsdecrypt reads an incoming MPEG transport stream over UDP/RTP and then decrypts it using keys obtained from OSCAM or a similar CAM server. Currently supported crypto systems are Conax, Cryptoworks, Irdeto, Viaccess, Mediaguard (Seca), Videoguard (NDS), Nagra, DRE-Crypt, and Bulcrypt. BISS and constant code words are also supported. tsdecrypt communicates with a CAM server using the cs378x (camd35 over TCP) protocol or the newcamd protocol.
mptsd receives MPEGTS streams from UDP/multicast or HTTP and combines them into one multiple program stream that is suitable for outputing to a DVB-C modulator. It has been tested with the Dektec DTE-3114 Quad QAM Modulator and it is used in production in couple of small DVB-C networks.
DVBlast is a simple and powerful MPEG-2 transport stream demux and streaming application with several input methods, such as Linux DVB supported cards (DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T, etc.), ASI cards, and UDP/RTP streams carrying a transport stream. It outputs one or several UDP/RTP streams carrying transport streams with hardware or software PID filtering, PID-based or service-based demultiplexing, and optional descrambling via a CAM device.
OpenSAND, formerly known as Platine, is a user-friendly and efficient tool to emulate satellite communication systems, mainly DVB-RCS - DVB-S2. It provides a suitable and simple means for performance evaluation and innovative access and network techniques validation. Its ability to interconnect real equipments with real applications provides excellent demonstration means.
