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. The ATSC-8 includes 8 digital tuners which are capable of tuning to 8 unique ATSC channels (13.1, 13.2, 13.3, etc…) or to 8 different frequencies in order to provide the entire ATSC channel offering (6, 8, 13, etc…). In the latter setup option, all the sub-channels can be included using a Multiple Program Transport Stream (MPTS) and allows for the entire ATSC channel to be transferred to a QAM channel, thus maximizing the tuner capacity.

 

Controlled by the COM2000

The ATSC-8 is controlled by the COM2000 using the same interface which controls the COM46, COM46-FLX and the QAM6. This allows for external setup and monitoring of the ATSC-8 device and allows for remote management and troubleshooting when necessary.
