8 port ATSC QAM to QAM Transcoder
ABLEvision 800R - 8 port ATSC/QAM to QAM Transcoder is the lowest cost/port in the
industry. The standalone solution is housed in a mini-chassis and provides a highly
affordable solution for HD broadcast VSB to QAM or Clear QAM to QAM. The 800R failover
mode capability prevents “PANIC REPAIRS” by designating lower priority channels to
an active and/or standby channel block. In the event of a failure, this block will
take the priority channel configuration. Operators can schedule failed module replacement
at their convenience.
32 port A/V Mpeg Encoder Multiplexer to QAM Transcoder
ABLEvision 32N - 32port A/V Mpeg Encoder Muliplexer to QAM Transcoder is also housed
in a mini-chassis allowing operators to completely convert to digital from their
existing composite A/V signals (NTSC/PAL). In addition, operators can migrate their
end-users to digital slowly by retaining their analog modulators and broadcasting
both digital and analog from their A/V sources. The 32N converts headend quality
signals to 4 agile QAM channels (FEC enabled) with 8 SD programs/channel. A mere
24MHz bandwidth provides the same SD programs as the current 192MHz analog programs
occupy. The ABLEvision 32N can free up 168MHz of spectrum space moving to digital.
ABLE is already working on what to fill it with next.
ABLEvision 3200 Universal QAM Transcoder is capable of up to 32 QAM output channels
in a single 2u rack-mount package. It is equipped with redundant power supplies and
a 4-line 18 character LCD for local setup and diagnostics. The 3200 supports a web
UI for configuration and monitoring, as well as secure remote access for configuration,
failure reporting and troubleshooting. The ABLEvision 3200 is capable of providing
32 HD ATSC/QAM channels using four of the 800R modules (32 QAM output channels) or
128 SD programs using 4 of the 32N modules (16 QAM output channels). Any combination
of modules fitting the operator’s needs can be accommodated.
