Allows Users to Aggregate a Number of Independent Transport or IP Streams into One Satellite Carrier
Multistream is a main advantage of the DVB-S2 standard.
Multistream is a main advantage of the DVB-S2 standard that allows users to aggregate a number of independent transport streams or IP streams into one satellite carrier in a fully transparent manner, maintaining the integrity of the original content.
At the transmit side, the individual input streams are divided in User Packets. The User Packets of one stream are all part of baseband frames which have the same Input Stream Identifier (ISI) in their header. The baseband frames of all streams are merged and transmitted after encoding.
At the receive side, streams are reconstructed by separation based upon the ISI values in the baseband headers.
