Hybrid QAM Modulator

Multi-Solution Edge QAM Platform


The MEQ1000B is capable of trans-modulation, MPEG encoding, and IP stream acquisition in a single platform.  A must-have for Hospitality, Health Care, Commercial, Government & Military, Digital Signage, or Cable Networks.

Multiple input card options cover a wide arrange of applications. The MEQ1000B allows you to build custom QAM channels from up to two diverse sources allowing operators to best utilize their bandwidth. Multiplexing locally encoded content with an existing QAM or satellite transport provides ultimate flexibility.
