Contemporary Research Intros 232-ATSC+1 3rd Generation HDTV Tuner

Dallas, TX – Contemporary Research announces the new 232-ATSC+1, the 3rd generation of their HDTV tuners. Introduced in 2005, the series represents the only US-made analog/digital HD tuners designed for AV integration, each generation adding new features and capabilities requested by integrators, consultants, and end users.

The new 232-ATSC+1 packs 7 years of innovation into a compact package – two tuners can be mounted in one rack space. But we didn’t stop there – we added Ethernet, Web, RS-232 and IR control, front-panel USB for updates, and new text-based menus for easier setup. Inside, we’re using new digital technology for tuning, with better response for marginal channels.

Best of all, the 232-ATSC+1 still channels every broadcast standard – cable, off-air, analog, digital, ATSC, and QAM. In fact, with an external RF-AB switcher, it can tune both cable and off-air TV channels.

CR President Scott Hetzler explains, “We create crowd-sourced solutions. Over the generations of our HDTV tuners we’ve added many key features requested by our partners. If an idea can expand options, fix problems, or simplify integration we make it happen. Our dealers will find that the 232-ATSC+1 is really easy to rack-mount, offers more control options, and is a snap to set up.”
