The HDE-1C-QAM (MPEG-2 HD Encoder – 1xComponent/Composite – 1xQAM) accepts one (1) high-definition (HD) program from a component input or (1) standard definition (SD) from a composite video input. MPEG-2 encoded outputs are available in QAM (1x) format. The QAM RF output is frequency agile over the entire CATV frequency range of 5-1002 MHz (channels T7-T14, 2-158) with an output level of +40 dBmV. The encoder also has a Delayed Audio output feature to provide proper lip-syncing when external audio amplifiers are used in the system.
The encoder supports Dolby® Digital audio encoding and Closed Captioning (EIA-608). Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a front-panel 100/1000 Ethernet connection.
