Broadcast Quality, Multi Channel, Frequency Agile, 2 RU 8VSB or QAM (Combination) Tuner/Demodulator with DVB-ASI Output. Ideal for Digital Turnaround at Cable Head Ends, by Feeding the ASI Outputs into Modulators for Transmodulation. These Modules are also Suitable for Remote Receivers Where the Outputs are Encapsulated into IP.

Broadcast Quality, Multichannel, Real Time, Standard or High Definition (up to 1080p), Integrated QAM Receiver, and MPEG-2 to H.264 or Optional H.265 Transcoder, Scaler, and Streamer. Based on Embedded Linux®, it Boots Quickly from Flash Drive and Remembers all Settings. Easy to Use GUI Allows Full Config of Each Stream and via SNMP can Report its Status to Remote Network Operations. Will Transcode and Process Multiple Streams up to CPU Limitations. Typical Dedicated Transcodes are up to 40 SD Streams, or 10 1080i/p Streams, or 15 720p60 Streams. Supports RTMP, HTTP, and Live Streaming and Works with Atlas™, Wowza®, and Adobe® Flash® Servers. Supports 50 Simultaneous HLS Users. With Optional Atlas™ Add-on, Supports 1,000 RTMP, DASH, and/or HLS Users Natively.
