PD1000: High-Definition Dense Encoder Modulation System

The professional-grade PD1000 HD encoder modulation system allows users to encode HD, SD, and HD-SDI signals in MPEG-2 or H.264 formats, all in a single rack space. The unit supports real-time encoding, while offering the flexibility of two, four, six, or eight HDMI (in the clear), HD-SDI, component, and composite (closed captioning) inputs. The HD encoder offers simultaneous RF (QAM, ISDB-T or ISDB-Tb) and IP outputs. The PD1000 enables remote control and monitoring via an intuitive Web interface, provides virtual channel mapping, and supports Dolby® Digital audio encoding. The HD encoder is ideal for commercial residential properties, academic and medical facilities, local area network applications for both CATV and broadcast, as well as the hospitality industry.
