The most compact RF Capture & Playback device. Covering a frequency range from 70 MHz up to 6 GHz,

 RF-Catcher can Record & Play real-time RF bandwidth of up to 55 MHz


  • Chipset, STB/TV field test debugging (a great tool to support your pre-sales team)
  • Handy demonstration setup: bring real RF sources into your laptop
  • Radio/TV Broadcast/Telecom RF troubleshooting
  • Test automation (CLI): plan & trigger capture/playback tasks
  • Telecommunications Regulation Agencies validation tool


  • Compact, easy & simple usage: no need for RF experts to capture field RF signals (ex: DAB/FM, TV broadcast, Satellite broadcast, Wi-Fi,…), your sales force can do it for you anywhere in the world
  • RF sources stored on a PC: easy to duplicate/transfer between headquarter and regional sites
  • Non proprietary IQ files; IQ file format converter available

Key Features :

RF-Catcher allows experimentation of a wide range of signals including Radio (FM, DAB…), TV broadcast (DVB-T/T2, C/C2, ISDB-T/Tb, etc…), cellular, Wi-Fi, up to satellitesignals (DVB-S/S2). The RF-Catcher is equipped with LNB control for frequency down conversion of Ku/C bands.
The integrated GNSS receiver provides precise location information; KML file, metadata, NMEA compatible.
Portable and compact, the RF-Catcher is used along with a PC through USB3 connectivity.
