HD GigaBUD (Video Hub)
The 54 MHz to 860 MHz “HD GigaBUD” video hub provides distribution of 134 NTSC analog channels or hundreds of digital channels including 1080 (i&p)High De finition channels over a structured Category cable system. The hub splits, amplifies,slopes and recombines RF broadband signals. It also provides cascading capability for connecting to other hubs in a star topology, and bi-directional capability providing remote/reverse broadcasts from all drops. The “R-Series” hubs provide return channel capability on channels T7-T13 and channels 2-6.
The “HD GigaBUDs” with their intelligent “HD GigaBOBs” are self-adjusting providing an overall plug-and-play distribution system. A 240 MHz pilot tone is controlled by Automatic Gain Control (AGC) circuits and serves as a reference signal to guarantee the consistency and level of output from each hub. The “HD GigaBOB” on the receive end of the horizontal Category cable also adjusts the signal levels to each TV according to their distance from the video hub.
