SD10E-QAM (SD Encoder – QAM) accepts and auto-detects up to ten (10) inputs in SD (480i) and NTSC baseband Audio/Video formats. The encoder, when applicable, digitizes, and MPEG-2 encodes each into a standard-de nition stream (SD-480i), and then multiplexes the resulting ten (10) streams into one (1) output in QAM format in the 5.75-864 MHz range (CATV sub-band) channels T7-T14 and standard channels 2-135). The encoder supports Dolby Digital AC-3 encoding, and Closed Captioning. Additionally, two ancillary output interfaces are available: one (1) in ASI format, and one (1) in DVI format for real-time and simultaneous preview of all the ten (10) multiplexed streams. A front-panel RF test point allows for monitoring/testing of the QAM output without service interruption.
Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a front-panel 10/100BaseT Ethernet connection.
