The Contemporary Research IP-HTDV is an HD tuner that offers analog and digital tuning, a variety of HD and NTSC output options, and full systems integration via Ethernet, RS-232, or discrete IR control.

The IP-HDTV tuner is capable of receiving analog and unscrambled digital programming, either off-air or CATV. High-definition and up-scaled NTSC video can be viewed from the tuner's component, RGB, or DVI ports, in 1080i, 720p, 480p or 480i formats. Standard 480i video can be recorded or monitored from composite and S-Video outputs. Stereo, mono, and Dolby 5.1 surround sound is available from optical, coax, and two stereo analog audio channels. Closed captioning is provided in both analog and digital formats.
Full control can be integrated from Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and wired IR control ports. System setup can be performed from a control system, front-panel controls, and on-screen menus from the included IR wireless remote. In addition, the tuner can install on a shelf or rack-mounted with an optional rack kit. 
Applications include HD and SD TV tuning for conference and meeting rooms, board rooms, and home theaters.
