The COM2000 System

The COM2000 system has been designed specifically for hotels and similar installations where there is a need for a single wire solution for multiple rooms. The COM2000 system offers up to 48 tuners in a scalable system that takes up a small space in an equipment rack. It creates a head-end system where every TV can be tuned to its own channel without interfering with other TVs.

 

 

FEATURES

 

 + Compact Form Factor

The COM2000 offers up to 48 channels of HD or SD video and integrated EdgeQAM’s in only 3 units of rack space.  This compact design also results in dramatic power savings from typical stacked receiver solutions.
 

+ HD Content Protection

For High-Definition solutions which require copy protection, the COM46 and COM24 HD receiver blades add Pro:Idiom™ or Samsung LYNK™ encryption to the HD content which can be played back on any Pro:Idiom™ or Samsung LYNK™ enabled receiver device or Television.
 

+ Integrated Edge QAM

Available as a plug-in module for the COM360 and COM200 chassis, the QAM6 reduces overall system costs and simplifies the installation and maintenance for the COM2000.  The QAM6, sold as a 6-channel QAM can be software upgraded to an 8, 10 or 12-channel QAM device, capable of delivering up to 24 (36*) streams of DIRECTV™ HD content or 96 streams of DIRECTV SD content.  The COM360 chassis has slots for 2 QAM6 devices for up to a total of 24 QAM channels in a single chassis.

*3 DIRECTV streams per QAM is possible on a properly balanced system—please ask your distributor or Technicolor for more information.
 

+ On-Screen Program Guide

The COM2000 is the only head-end based Free-to-Guest solution that includes a no additional charge on-screen channel guide which is configurable with your unique logo.
 

+ Remote Management

The COM2000, including all the receiver blades and EdgeQAM’s,  can be managed and monitored remotely over the internet or local network using a simple web-browser based management interface.

The COM360 chassis is the foundation for the COM2000 system providing the housing, power supply, GbE backplane and cooling system required for the DIRECTV receiver blades and EdgeQAMs.

DCI401MCS

HD content delivered over an RF distribution requires that content protection be applied. For the hospitality market, the standard content protection system is Pro:Idiom™.

At the heart of the COM2000 system is the COM46 receiver blade. The newest in a family of DIRECTV receivers specifically designed for the commercial market.

QAM6

NTSC-8

The NTSC-8 Analog Modulator accepts 8 channels over an IP connection from a COM46 outputting HD content to the QAM to duplicate these channels for analog distribution.

ATSC-8

The latest addition to the COM2000 family includes an off-air tuner capable of receiving ATSC HD content, outputting this content in IP format for easy re-distribution utilizing the QAM6.
