The Kathrein UFSconnect 926 is the right choice for discerning TV viewers: The first satellite receiver from Kathrein which is suitable for the reception of UHD/4k signals offers an ultra-sharp picture quality. The resolution is about four times higher than HD. An internal hard disk of 500 or 1000 GB provides the necessary storage space for archiving recordings. The two CI+ interfaces also enable the reception of pay-TV channels, such as HD+ or Sky, provided that a corresponding module including a smart card of the pay-TV provider is connected.

Multi-tuner devices like the UFSconnect 926 UHD satellite receiver from Kathrein can be supplied with a multitude of user bands on one drop cable. The new single-cable multi-switch of the EXD series allows several devices to be connected to one satellite outlet. The integrated AGC function (Automatic Gain Control) ensures that the satellite IF signals have a constant output level and more reserve in the distribution. Each subscriber frequency is protected from unauthorised access by means of a PIN code. In addition, the multi-switch only consumes power from the power supply unit when a receiver is switched on.
