Home is where the media is, be it on land, sea, or in the air. While large-scale residential applications have historically used extensive (and expensive) twisted-pair video routing systems, HD video distribution is shifting to HDTV RF – for a number of good reasons.
RF is simple to implement, easily scalable, and far less expensive to integrate. No expensive interfaces to install (and replace when new standards arise) – TVs have HDTV tuners on board, so reception is free. The coax “backbone” can be branched at any point to add new TV viewing locations. Most importantly, the RF infrastructure is often in place.
Contemporary Research leads the way to HDTV media distribution with its QMOD HD modulators series. Content from satellite and cable receivers are converted to open-access HD digital cable channels, while HD scaler modulators distribute channels from security camera servers and other PC-driven media.
HDTV media systems are also a popular choice for yachts or trains, as RF coax can easily carry HD signals for very long distances to many locations. RF is a hand’s down choice for HD retrofits, re-deploying the existing analog RF infrastructure to HD.
Venue Vizion provides a simplified solution for HDTV distribution and control and is the perfect solution for nursing homes, dorms, and houses! It provides the ability to create multiple in-house channels of high-definition content from satellite or cable receivers, PC’s, media Players and other sources utilizing our QMOD HDTV Modulators IPTV Encoders. Venue Vizion’s RF Control Center hosts easy-to-use web pages for control and sends commands over the same RF coax as the digital channels. With the included TV Controllers, multiple TVs and video walls can be commanded with the touch of button. The System is rack ready, preset, and operational out-of the-box with only a few steps taken by the user. While the system is preconfigured for simplicity, it is not limited in application. Five different models of QMODs can be specified, and IR and/or RS-232 controllers may be used. More TV controllers, tuner/controllers for projectors, modulators, RF combiners, amplifiers, and other components can be added at any time. With a PC, tablet, or smartphone, multiple users can access the DX Lite Web page for touch control.
