Addison, Texas—Contemporary Research is pleased to announce the release of the QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller, an integration-friendly IPTV decoder with incorporated display control and video output scaling up to 4K. Designed to function like the 232-ATSC 4K HDTV Tuner, the new QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller was designed specifically for commercial AV integration. It can be used in any market application where the need exists to decode IPTV channels distributed over an Ethernet network with the ability to also control televisions or displays.
The QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller will accept MPEG2 or H.264 single or multiple program transport streams and is compatible with UDP and RTP unicast or multicast IPTV streams. The QIP-D features HDMI output and video scaling from 480i to 4K and decodes MP12, AAC, and AC-3 Audio. Users can select channels, volume, and power from the front panel controls, handheld IR remote, or external control system via IP or RS-232. A channel list of programs can be uploaded from a PC running CR Toolbox software, a free universal application designed to connect and update CR products.
The integrated display controller can control power and source selection of the connected display device via RS-232 when used in conjunction with Contemporary Research’s ICE-HE-DXL Display Control Center with Display Express Lite, Display Express Software, or a third-party control system.
The QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller is made and supported in the U.S. by a technical support staff of AV Integrators. It is easy to set-up, maintain, and update. The QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller is robust and tolerant of changes in input resolutions and network instabillity.
Contemporary Research’s ICE-HE-DXL Display Control Center, Display Express Control Software and QIP Encoders can be incorporated with the QIP-D to create a complete IPTV video distribution and display control system. The QIP-D IPTV Decoder/Controller is now shipping. For more information about this product, visit www.contemporaryresearch.com.
