DVEO to Introduce Remotely Manageable QAM Modulator for Digital Signage at InfoComm 2010

San Diego, California -- DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), will unveil their new remotely manageable QAM modulator with ASI input or local storage input at InfoComm, June 9-11, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Available now, the eYe Grabber™ is a standalone, multi-function, frequency agile DTV modulator with web-based management. It accepts real time ASI or SMPTE 310M MPEG-2 transport streams and plays them out to multiple HD monitors. The system can also play transport streams from a local USB “stick”.

"The eYe Grabber is an ideal way to manage content on multiple TV's from remote locations", stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. "For example, retailers can install one unit at each store, along with a USB thumb drive loaded with numerous videos. Using web-based management, an operator in the home office can program which video will be played. We also recommend the eYe Grabber for use in universities, corporate offices, and entertainment facilities."

The eYe Grabber is available with the customer's choice of QAM, 8VSB, DVB-T/H, DVB-S/S2, ATSC M/H, ISDB-T, T-DMB, DMB-T, or CMMB output. The input can be USB, DVB-ASI, or SMPTE 310M, single or multi program transport streams. One 8VSB RF channel can have up to one HD and one SD stream or three SD streams, and one QAM channel can have two HD streams.

Customers can purchase licenses for additional profiles and upgrade the unit immediately. The compact Linux®-based eYe Grabber can interface via an antenna or coaxial cable.
