AQT8-QAM/IP transcoder allows the user to build a custom channel lineup via IP output by selecting input programs from 8VSB (Digital off-air) or QAM (Clear digital cable) formats. The unit provides a combination of SPTS and/or MPTS IP output across eight (8) IP addresses. The AQT8 maps QAM/8VSB input programs directly to QAM output channels.
The AQT8-QAM/IP features Emergency Alert System (EAS) program switching through either an ASI or IP format EAS input and terminal block contacts for triggering. Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a rear-panel 10/100BaseT Ethernet connection.
