Drake: MRT1000 Modular Receiver Transcoder

The R.L. Drake model MRT1000 is a commercial grade modular receiver transcoder for use in Comcast Wholesale’s QuickTake (QT) and NAS systems for Headend-In-The-Sky (HITS) installations as well as Shaw’s QT-Plus satellite service. The MRT1000 has a satellite demodulator module (L-band tuner) with a frequency range of 950-2150 MHz which tunes to the satellite transponder providing the required out-of-band data.

The MRT1000 extracts the data from the satellite stream, and provides it as a UDP/IP Ethernet output for connection to an out-of-band modulator (OBM) for delivery of STB authorizations, EPG and other data signaling used in the system.
