The IPQC is a highly integrated 1RU video edgeQAM which can multiplex and scramble IP video signals and convert
them to QAM/DVB-C channels for use in CATV systems including the Pico Digital Condor CATV system.

The IPQC has a flexible design allowing various applications. For a DVB-C/QAM/Condor CATV system, it can take 36
single program transport streams (SPTS) via the Gigabit Ethernet port and combines these with external DVB-SI streams
to create a full DVB-C compliant network with up to 12 QAM channels of either Annex A or Annex B.
Each of these services can be scrambled using the DVB-CSA through the standard SymulCrypt interface with a conditional
access server.

The high quality QAM output of the edgeQAM is organized into 3 independent blocks of 4 contiguous channels which can
be placed anywhere in the extended CATV range of 50MHz to 1002MHz.
