  • Features
  • Specs & Order Info
  • Other Documents
  • Broadband 5-1000 MHz
  • Broadcast quality specifications for unparalleled picture quality
  • Built-in return path diplexer
  • Sub-band output port provides high isolation VHF/UHF ingress-free return path for CMTS and remote audio/video application
  • >18 dB return loss provides reduced reflections for exceptional digital signal performance
  • Directional coupler design provides improved carrier-to-noise, system performance and picture quality
  • High -50 dB port-to-port isolation provides spurious carrier rejection and minimizes undesired channel interaction, thereby reducing picture distortion
