Contemporary Research has launched three next-gen QMOD encoder modulators — the QMOD-SDI 1.5, QMOD-HDMI 1.5 and QMOD-YPB-2.

Based on new architecture, the units have evolved by the power of two. New QMOD 1.5 series modulators start at single-channel operation and price, yet can be upgraded to two channels by entering an optional software, while QMOD 2 series products start out with two channels.

The modulators support two video streams (RF and IP), two audio formats (AC-3 and AES stereo), two captioning options (708/608 and Line 22), and two MTS language programs for each channel. They all ount two-across in one rack space.

All units feature unique adaptive encoding — the ability to convert non-ATSC and advanced video formats into a QAM cable channel. In addition, all QMODs will upconvert

GigE is included in all QMODs, supporting IPTV streaming, IP control and onboard Web pages for setup, operation, monitoring and firmware updates, while screw terminals allow control for EAS broadcast.

SD video to HD, and an optional upgrade key enables a full range of up- and downconversion and scaling features.

The QMOD-SDI 1.5 features HD-SDI (up to 3G), Component and Composite/CC inputs, and it supports SDI embedded, digital coax, optical and stereo audio. The QMOD-HDMI 1.5 includes HDMI (non-HDCP), RGBHV/Component inputs. Dual Composite/CC, stereo and coax audio inputs support single- and dual-channel modes of operation. The QMOD-YPB-2 HDTV modulator delivers cost-effective dual-channel distribution of Component cable and satellite TV sources, supported by dual Component, Composite/CC, stereo and coax audio inputs.
