      The HDDM (High-Definition Demodulator Module) is a low cost professional video decoder that can decode a single IP transport stream, off-air digital 8VSB channel, or a program from a clear QAM source. The unit accepts content in either MPEG-2 or H.264 video formats and outputs simultaneously 1xHD/SD-SDI, 1xHDMI, 1xComponent, and 1xComposite video interfaces with embedded audio or separate analog audio.

      The unit can be used as a stand-alone high quality decoder, or used in conjunction with our IP encoders, such as LiveCast to provide an end-to-end IP video delivery solution.

      Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a rear-panel 10/100 Ethernet connection.
