The Thor QAM modulator is a multi-dynamic tool used to distribute any live HDMI video source such as a cable TV STB, DVD player, Digital Signage Device etc, and broadcast that video on your own RF channel over your existing coax infrastructure. This easy to use encoder modulator is useful for any type of video encoding & distribution. This unit can be just an encoder, a modulator, or IPTV server, or all 3 at once. Units range from 1-4 channels and are compatible with any HDMI source that will output an RF channel with perfect HD quality video up to 1080p60 that encodes in either MPEG-2 or H.264. Creating your headend with dozens of channels can be easily accomplished by stacking several units and daisy chaining the RF in’s & out’s, or by using an external RF combiner.
All settings are configurable through either the front panel LCD or through a web browser on a dedicated network port. The NMS (network management software) built into every Thor unit is a proprietary firmware that will allow you to adjust any settings on the encoder from any web browser, from any device located on the same network. A second network port is provided for IPTV streaming output that can directly feed any standard IPTV system. This unit also provides a DVB-ASI input and output for added flexibility and integration with other broadcasting components. This modulator will output RF QAM, ASI, and IP simultaneously creating easy distribution over coax and IP. Automated internal chipset will automatically adjust most settings. RF Power levels can be adjusted from 0-40dBmV. All Thor products come with a 5 year warranty and free tech support.
