The COM2000 solution has been designed specifically for hotels and similar installations.
- Compact Form Factor
The COM2000 offers up to 48 channels of HD or SD video and integrated Edge QAMs in only three units of rack space. This compact design also results in dramatic power savings compared to typical stacked receiver solutions.
- HD Content Protection
or High-Definition solutions that require copy protection, the COM46 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, 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. The COM360 chassis has slots for two QAM6 devices, for up to a total of 24 QAM channels in a single chassis.
*Three DIRECTV streams per QAM are possible on a properly balanced system—please ask your distributor or Technicolor for more information.
- Remote Management
The COM2000, including all the receiver blades and Edge QAMs, can be managed and monitored remotely over the Internet or local network using a simple web browser-based management interface.
The COM360 includes an integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet backplane with two Gigabit Ethernet ports available on the front panel. It contains two slots for QAM6 to be inserted, for a total of up to 24 QAM channels; and six receiver slots, for a total of 48 DIRECTV content streams (HD or SD), utilizing the COM46 receiver blades.
The COM360 provides all the receiver blades and plug-in cards with a commercial grade power supply drawing less than 225W of power when fully loaded with receivers and two QAM6. This cuts the power usage by more than half when compared to a comparable stacked receiver head-end system and provides for tremendous savings in yearly Operational Expenses associated with video distribution systems.
The COM360 provides commercial grade cooling fans in order to meet the grueling demands of harsh commercial environments.

As the newest in a family of DIRECTV receivers specifically designed for the commercial market, COM46 is capable of tuning eight high-definition channels or standard-definition channels of DIRECTV content, and outputting this content over IP with In-the-Clear for SD broadcasts, or with either Zenith Pro:Idiom™ or Samsung LYNK™* content protection for HD broadcasts. The IP output can either be aggregated and distributed using an existing IP network, or it can be sent to an external Edge QAM device**. For a very simple, self-contained installation, the COM46 output can be directed to Technicolor’s QAM6 installed in the COM360 chassis.
* Samsung LYNK server required as an additional component for LYNK installations.
** IP and External Edge QAM installations will require a unique software key available for purchase from your Technicolor dealer or distributor.

Distribution of content typically requires the use of an Edge QAM device to distribute digital content using an RF cable network. The QAM6 is designed specifically for the COM2000 and fits perfectly into the management slot of the COM360 chassis. It provides for six channels of QAM and can modulate 12 HD streams of DIRECTV, 48 SD streams of DIRECTV, or countless combinations of the two.
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 Edge QAM for any specific application.
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.
