UCrypt QAM to QAM

ATX’s UCrypt QAM to QAM (Q2Q) media distribution gateway is designed to provide reliable and secure HD or SD programming to hospitality or other commercial customers without the need for set-top boxes at every display. An easy-to-use, Web-based UI for remote configuration management and the ability to monitor thousands of deployed units simultaneously via the UCrypt Monitoring server improves operational efficiency. The solution is able to decrypt up to 60 programs, and includes a configurable EPG (Electronic Program Guide) channel. It is ideal for MSOs and other service providers that need to decrypt select programs from their digital tier, re-encrypt them with Pro:Idiom® or leave them in-the-clear and retransmit them via QAM. It is especially well suited for hospitality applications requiring an expanded digital lineup.


  • Operational Efficiency – Multifunction capabilities enables MSOs to reduce costs and operational overhead by streamlining operations for  decrypting and transitioning an encrypted digital cable feed to Pro:Idiom-encrypted or clear QAM video format suitable for hospitality, enterprise and other bulk account applications
  • Reduced Trouble Calls – A proven track record of long-term operation in mission-critical and high-visibility environments with multiple layers of integrated redundancy and robustness gives service providers assurances of operational stability that only a field-hardened system can deliver
  • Ease of Use – Enterprise-grade features, such as remote configuration and monitoring capability, including the ability to pro-actively monitor all deployed devices via a central UCrypt Monitoring Server instance, makes it easier for MSOs and other service providers to keep tabs on the health of their networks
  • Rack-Space Savings– Industry-leading support for handling up to 60 MPEG-2/H.264, HD/SD, programs in a single unit enables service providers to conserve precious rack space, reduce power consumption and realize other benefits of deploying high-density solutions
  • Cost Efficiency –  The platform’s expandable architecture enables service providers to add capacity and functionality to the platform in lockstep with market demand,  allowing MSOs and other to adopt a pay-as-you-grow model
