Nucomm to roll out ProQ IFB receiver
February 19, 2009
Nucomm will debut its ProQ DTV IFB receiver designed for use as an IFB solution for ENG users during DTV transmission, for monitoring DTV signals through a DVB-ASI output and streaming video over an IP connection to a laptop or other IP-enabled device.
The new ProQ DTV IFB receiver is 5in by 1.75in by 8.5in and features dual UHF/VHF antennas, two silicon tuners and sixth generation VSB demodulators. The ProQ contains an MPEG Layer 1/Layer 2 audio decoder that is capable of decoding two independent sound programs, providing up to four audio channels and using bit rates as low as 32kb/s for each. Coupled with low-latency audio encoders and proper design of the DTV packet insertion, total audio latency can be less than 80ms. Its audio signal outputs are outfitted on a 5-pin XLR connector.
