The KTech Telecom DCC-4200 is a Multi-Channel HD/SD Encoder with an 8-VSB Modulator Output conforming to the ATSC A53 Terrestrial Digital Television Broadcast Standard. It takes multiple HD-SDI or SD-SDI signal inputs, and generates static PSIP tables and multiple 8-VSB RF carriers.
Inputs and Outputs
This unit supports multiple HD-SDI/SD-SDI inputs, ASI output, GigE output and 8-VSB RF outputs (optional.) An RJ45 is available for NMS control via GUI using web-interface.
There are three slots that accept HD-SDI/SD-SDI inputs. The empty, unused slots can be used for additional future functions and expanded capabilities such as an additional tuner, GigE or ASI interface.
The HD encoder supports [email protected] [email protected], [email protected] [email protected] and [email protected] [email protected] and the SD encoder supports [email protected] [email protected]
Static PSIP Generation
Static PSIP tables will be generated (STT, VCT, MGT and four static EIT.)
Fail-Over and Fail-Back (Optional)
Upon user's selection of predetermined Fail-Over and Fail-Back trigger scenarios, the unit will automatically change to Fail-Over (primary to secondary mode) or Fail-Back (secondary to primary mode) of the input selection.
Standby Video Generator (Optional)
In the event of loss of signal, the DCC-4200 will automatically insert a standby video message that had been previously downloaded into the unit via USB or GUI and is useful to indicate if the input is bad. STB will show the contents of the video message such as a "Stay Tuned" technical message, rather than showing no signal or a black picture.
Alarms and Notifications sent via Email and IM
In the event of failure, the unit will send a notification to the user's email and text message the user's cell phone with the same notification.
All settings and controls can be viewed and set using a web-based GUI or Front Panel Control.
