The 54 MHz to 860 MHz Z-Distribution REG video hub provides distribution of 134 NTSC analog channels or hundreds of digital channels including 1080 (i&p) HD 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 Z-Distribution REGs with their intelligent Z-Baluns 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 Z-Distribution 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.
