Features

• As an agile analog heterodyne processer: accepts one Analog RF input

(CATV sub-band channels T7-T13, CATV standard channels 2-135, VHF channels 2-13, and UHF

channels 14-69) and delivers one Analog RF output (CATV standard channels 2-135).

• As an agile digital heterodyne processer: accepts one Digital Cable QAM

input (CATV sub-band channels T7-T13, and CATV standard channels 2-135) and delivers

one Digital Cable QAM output (CATV standard channels 2-135).

• As an agile digital-to-analog processer: accepts one Digital Off-air 8VSB or

Digital Cable QAM input (CATV standard channels 2-135, VHF channels 2-13, and UHF

channels 14-69) and delivers one Analog RF output (CATV standard channels 2-135).

• Equipped with EAS interface which can also be used as an IF

(Intermediate Frequency) input

• Supports Closed Captioning (EIA-608)

[1] Digital camera with ASI output captures the event in a location within the facility (i.e. school cafeteria)

[2] The analog modulator converts A/V output of the camera to a sub-band RF channel T7 to T13 (Model: AM-60-550 with sub-band Option 4)

[3] The event in analog format is displayed (monitored) locally on a TV monitor via a diplexer (Model: DSV)

[4] The event is transmitted to facility’s headend on the existing coax via the return path (5.75-44.25 MHz)

[5] In the headend, the sub-band channel is converted to any standard channel 2-135 and inserted into channel lineup (Model AP-60-860)

[6] The cafeteria event is broadcast live to all classrooms
