Contemporary Research’s Affordable QMOD-SDI Modulator Creates Fresh Solutions for Distributing HD and SD SDI Media
Posted on Wednesday, March 2, 2011

DALLAS, TX - Contemporary Research’s   QMOD-SDI HD-SDI digital QAM modulator, retailing at $2999, creates fresh solutions for distributing HD and SD SDI media from live studio feeds, high-performance digital signage players, and broadcast quality video sources.

Applications include in-house broadband RF systems at sports, retail and entertainment facilities, corporate offices, colleges, schools and worship centers.

The QMOD-SDI accepts HD-SDI, SD-SDI, Component, S-Video and Composite video, plus digital and analog audio. Then, using the same technology as TV and cable broadcasters, the unit formats and amplifies the signal as an agile QAM digital cable channel.

GPI inputs can trigger EAS programming, input from the composite video and stereo. Video

inputs are fully switchable between SDI, Component, and Composite inputs. Front-panel buttons and LCD display make for easy setup, and the half-rack space enclosure and low 10W power draw save both space and energy.

Contemporary Research President Scott Hetzler says, “The QMOD-HD which features analog VGA, Component, and S-Video/Composite inputs, has been well received by our dealers and users. When we asked our integrators what they preferred for digital video, the overwhelming response was for HD-SDI. There simply were no affordable HDTV modulators. Now, with the QMOD-SDI, there is one.”
