232-MTA Mono Tuner

The Contemporary Research 232-MTA is a versatile RS-232 controlled TV tuner featuring 125 channel access in Off-Air, Cable, HRC, or IRC modes, front-panel operation and feedback, and intelligent control. Fully programmable, the unit can restore all settings on power-up from nonvolatile memory. A list of channels can be stored in memory, used to provide convenient channel up/down operation and restrict direct access to other channels.
The front-panel buttons and channel/mode display can be used for general operation and to program basic features for tuning, RS-232 baud rate and local control. Full setup, control, and feedback is provided by RS-232. Up to nine units can be controlled from a single RS-232 port. Remote channel up and down operation can be accessed through contact closure inputs. In addition, the tuner can be set up and controlled with Tuner Helper PC software, and firmware can be updated with easy-to-use software.
Applications include TV origination for conference and meeting rooms, board rooms, and home theaters.
