Contemporary Research QMOD-HDMI RGB

The dual-channel QMOD-HDMI RGB (formerly QMOD-HDMI 1.5), with one non-encrypted HDMI and one RGBHV/Component input, sets a new standard for sports, motion and digital signage encoding. Dual hardware scalers accept content up to 1080p, shapes VGA signage for edge-to-edge presentation, and compensates for non-broadcast and PAL refresh rates. Able to deliver two HD programs in one channel, the QMOD-HDMI 1.5 can also output the content as a Multicast or Unicast IPTV stream. Options include dual-language SAP audio, easy front-panel setup and alternate audio and NTSC video inputs. Web setup, monitoring, and firmware updates are available via USB and Ethernet ports. Two-across mounting offers up to four programs per rack space, with the ability to mix models to handle HDMI, SDI, Component, RGBHV and NTSC video sources.

Contemporary Research QCA9-33 Active Combiner

The Contemporary Research QCA9-33, is an active RF combiner that features eight high-level inputs and one low-level input, combining with high isolation and amplifying up to a 33 dBmV output level.

Designed for QMOD HDTV applications, the eight RF inputs typically receive 29 dBmV RF from QMOD HDTV modulators. The ninth input is for up to 19 dBmV RF signals, such as incoming cable feed, a control channel from an ICE-HE Head End control modulator, or another QMOD or QCA9-33. Up to 8 QCA9-33 combiners can feed a single combiner to deliver up to 76 channels.

The extremely low-noise, wideband 860 MHz amplifier compensates for combining losses and adds 3 dBmV of gain, typically supplying a total output of up to 33 dBmV. Employing new RF technology, the QCA9-33 delivers higher isolation, quality, and noise performance over analog-era components; the noise factor is a very low 1.8, four or more times less than other active combiners.

The compact QCA9-33 mounts two-across in a single rack space using CR RK1 and RK-2 rack kits, and can be mixed with QMOD HDTV modulators using the same rack kits. The units are wholly designed and manufactured in the USA.
