The MAVM Series are professional quality, channelized agile, heterodyne audio/video modulators. They provide audio and video modulated RF output on any VHF, UHF, or CATV channel (7 to 860 MHz). SUB-BAND channels T7-T11 are available. Any standard audio/video source can be used, such as satellite receivers, television cameras, video tape recorders, or television demodulators. These modulators feature a low cost, removable single channel output filter module to provide a channelized configuration. Customer requests for individual channels can be easily accomplished by combining the frequency agile mainframe with the desired removable output filter module. Modulators may be ordered as completed assemblies or as configurable modules. The MAVM-861 is a single output modulator consisting of the MAVM-861-MF mainframe and a channelized OFM-40-860 output filter module. The MAVM-60-861 is a single output modulator consisting of the MAVM-861-MF mainframe and a channelized OFM-60- 860 output filter module. The MAVM-863 is a triple output modulator consisting of a MAVM-863-FP faceplate to which are attached a MAVM-863- PS power supply and three MAVM-863-MB modulator bases. The MAVM-60-863 is a triple output modulator consisting of a MAVM-863-FP faceplate to which are attached a MAVM- 863-PS power supply and three MAVM-863-MB modulator bases. The MAVM Series takes baseband audio and video and modulates these signals onto the desired output channel (each modulator has separate audio and video inputs). The heterodyne conversion process used in the MAVM Series employs a crystal referenced, PLL synthesized local oscillator, with a 12.5 kHz tuning increment. This guarantees rock solid, no-drift output for the life of the modulator. A
custom SAW filter is employed to provide true vestigial sideband selectivity with built-in FCC group delay pre-distortion. An external IF loop is standard which allows interfacing with video all-call and signal scrambling systems as well as the ability to lock to either baseband or a 4.5MHz aural carrier. The MAVM Series meets FCC Docket 21006 aeronautical frequency offset requirements (+/-5 kHz video carrier accuracy) and accepts standard polarity (sync negative) video in the range of 0.7 to 2.8 V p-p. Field-defeatable audio pre-emphasis enables transmission of BTSC standard composite stereo signals.
