Contemporary Research’s QMOD-HD HDTV Modulator

Contemporary Research’s new QMOD-HD HDTV modulator easily converts PC-driven HD VGA and component into an HDTV digital cable channel. Retailing for less than $2,400, the QMOD-HD opens the door to cost-effective distribution of digital signage and HD subscriber sources using existing broadband coax cabling in sports, retail and entertainment facilities, corporate offices, colleges, schools, and worship centers. The QMOD-HD accepts HD VGA and component analog video plus digital or stereo audio, and converts the inputs into a 720p/1080i MPEG-2 digital media stream. Then, using the same technology as TV and cable broadcasters, the unit formats and amplifies the signal as an agile QAM digital cable channel. The channel combines easily into existing broadband systems, tuned in by digital, cable-ready receivers in displays and integration HDTV tuners such as the CR 232-ATSC. Front-panel buttons and LCD display make for easy setup, and the half-rack space enclosure and low 10W power draw save both space and power.
