HD SDI HDTV Modulator – QMOD-SDI1.5

QMOD-SDI-1.5The new QMOD-SDI1.5 features 3G SDI and Component, 2 Channel upgrade, Flex Coding, and Scaling upgrade. Employing a totally new HD encoding technology, the QMOD-SDI1.5 continues the QMODtm track record for quality and innovation, setting a new benchmark for features and performance. In addition to standard SDI resolutions, the QMOD-SDI can accept 3G SDI and 60/30 Hz feeds from prosumer SDI sources. Users can upgrade operation for full scaling and dual-channel operation by entering optional upgrade key codes.


  • One HD-SDI input, 3G 1080p and 1080i/720p 59.94/60 Hz HD-SDI, and SD-SDI 480i widescreen/4:3 video; also accepts embedded 608/708 captioning and AC-3/AES audio
