Contemporary Research QMOD-SDI 2

The Contemporary Research QMOD-SDI 2 can deliver two HD-SDI streams over RF and IPTV. The heart of the technology shift is a new dual-channel encoder with embedded 608/708 captioning as well as Line 21 data on the unit’s dual composite/CC inputs. Each of the two SDI inputs is matched by coax SPIDF and analog stereo audio inputs, so that audio can be added when it’s not embedded. Integral scaling can accept 3G SDI, 59.94/60Hz video, as well as international 50Hz and 25Hz formats. An optional upgrade key adds the ability to cross-convert resolutions, such as scaling all input formats to 720p or 1080i. Embedded or SPDIF AC-3 audio will pass through to the channel, and stereo AES, PCM or analog audio will be converted to stereo AC-3. In addition, encoding supports dual-language audio channels. The unit’s 1G IP port also supports onboard web pages, setup, monitoring, and firmware updates.
