New ATSC-SDI 4 HDTV Tuner will demo at NAB Show

ATSC-SDI-4-FrontContemporary Research is unveiling its newest HDTV tuner, ATSC-SDI 4, at the NAB Show in Las Vegas April 13-16. The ATSC-SDI 4 is the first cost-effective HDTV demodulator that features a onboard  HD-SDI port, as well as MPEG2 and MPEG4 decoding.

The integral HD-SDI output allows inclusion of 708/608 captioning, choice of AES stereo or AC-3 audio, and scaled output set to a constant 1080p, 1080i, 720p, or 480i resolution.

A professional HDTV tuner, the ATSC-SDI 4 features onboard Web pages for control, setup and monitoring. The compact enclosure allows mounting of two tuners in a single rack space.

Based on the industry-standard 232-ATSC 4 HDTV tuner technology, the ATSC-SDI 4 can receive both analog and digital channels, in ATSC, NTSC, and clear QAM formats. Using an optional RF switcher, the tuner can switch between antenna and cable feeds.

The ATSC-SDI 4 HDTV Tuner will be available late Q2 for $1430 MSRP.
