Distribution of content typically requires the use of an EdgeQAM device to distribute digital content using an RF cable network. Technicolor designed the QAM6 specifically for use with the COM2000 so you aren’t paying for unnecessary features included in other EdgeQAMs designed for the cable industry. The QAM6 fits perfectly into the management slot of the COM360 chassis and provides for 6 channels of QAM and can modulate 12 HD streams of DIRECTV, 48 SD streams of DIRECTV or countless combinations of the two.


Expandable to 12-channel QAM

The QAM6 can be easily upgraded to an 8-channel, 10-channel or 12-channel QAM using a key which can be applied to the device. This allows you to maximize the efficiency of the EdgeQAM for your specific application.


External Content Friendly

The QAM6 is designed to work seamlessly with the COM2000, but other content is welcome as well. External content from IP sources can be routed through the QAM6 for RF distribution. This includes content from Technicolor’s ATSC-8 device (available separately) and external sources such as a PC, video camera, or other IP converter.
