Consumer based applications that necessitate the use of players, external components, and digital signage are becoming increasingly popular as businesses begin to allocate customizable data into a QAM channel. Hence the new prerogative of HDMI to RF is now inherently a popular go to for internal marketing and signage. The demand of adding menu’s and streaming content from a PC or Blu-Ray is easily handled by devices such as an Encoder Modulator that will allow you to transmit such information on an internal RF network that is being fed by an encoder. Such a popular demand is being met by Thor Fiber with their line of QAM-IP chassis that can easily manipulate the channel mapping of your devices being fed from the HDMI encoder modulator that has an RF output. New engineering concepts have allowed companies like Thor Fiber to map consecutive channels on one RF frequency. In the case that you only have one open QAM frequency available on your TV Channel lineup, you can still put more than one carrier on that frequency. For example these units will allow you to put menu’s on channel 2.1 and the happy hour special on 2.2, this mapping helps alleviate confusion among employees who need to physically walk up to the TV sets and manually change the channel you are trying to locate. Pragmatic applications are generally part of the day to day routine for managers and owners who are reluctant to play with advanced technology. Inherently these modulator’s make switching content a breeze, all you need to do is change the content on your PC software that is streaming the Happy Hour menu. Theoretically most restaurants change their menu’s daily, so why not change the menu on a fixed component like TV instead of using a massive chalk board or white board advertising. Using common software on any PC, once your happy hour specials are completed, the encoder will automatically see the new information streaming off your PC and immediately broadcast that information over your entire RF infrastructure already in place throughout your building. Being progressive in today’s environment is no longer a challenge with unique equipment that aids everyone in projecting a more professional image of themselves on TV’s instead of smaller cut out menu’s that need to be distributed to hospitality employees daily, eliminating the need to print expensive menu additions daily. Save your employees time and your company money by utilizing a thriving technology that lets any owner become a professional media advertiser over their digital signs. You as the owner are now empowered by catchy media advertisement that no longer needs to be a stagnant logo. Using software from Apple or Windows, you can create media slideshows, mini-commercials, short video presentations, and offer your clients a unique view of how you want to portray your business. Flashy short videos of bartenders creating exotic drinks for 30 seconds followed by a 2 minute view of the specials of the day creates a picturesque portrayal of not only your amazing special but also the creation of a cocktail so the consumer already knows what their getting before they get it. Creating content that sells itself takes less pressure off your sales/wait staff that is already slammed with tables because you’re now the cool bar on the block.
We aim high at being focused on building relationships with our clients and community. Working together on the daily requires each individual to let the greater good of the team’s work surface above their own ego.Find out More
The F-2QAMTC is a high quality digital head end encoder/modulator that tunes and demodulates MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 encoded VSB or QAM modulated signals from off air broadcast or CATV sources. The unit can also be configured to accept an ASI input source. After error correction, it remodulates and up converts the recovered MPEG transport stream onto a new QAM modulated output channel. The Standard F-2QAMTC ships with two tuner / demodulator's. The output of the F-2QAMTC consists of a QAM modulator with an agile RF up converter with an output of up to 61 dBmv that tunes from 54 to 1002 MHz. The F-2QAMTC functions as a digital channel processor. It is capable of receiving an ATSC, DVB, or DigiCipher® II input signal on any channel in the CATV or broadcast spectrum in 8vsb, 16vsb, or 16QAM to 256QAM modulation and modulating as a DVB or DigiCipher® II QAM signal. The unit then applies the appropriate forward error correction to the received input stream, drops and adds null packets as required by the selected output bit rate, perform PCR correction, and re-encodes with the appropriate output FEC for the modulation chosen. The QAM output signal is then up converted to the new RF output channel using our high performance low noise circuitry. The F-QAMTC is fully controllable via Head end Remote Control software for remote programming of operating parameters or remote monitoring of operations. With the optional ASI input module, one of the inputs may be delivered via an MPEG-2 transport stream compatible ASI input.
The H-IP-12ASI is an IP network to 12 channel ASI Gateway. It allows users to recover up to 12 DVB-ASI transport streams sent over an IP network from an ASI to IP gateway such as the H-12ASI-IP. The unit uses sophisticated processing to ensure synchronized audio and video content and accurately transfers the Program Clock Reference (PCR) to the output transport stream. The H-IP-12ASI can accurately and seamlessly receive up to 12 ASI transport streams carried over an IP network. The versatility of IP networks makes the H-12ASI-IP and H-IP-12ASI pair an excellent solution for transporting DVB-ASI signals from one location to another. This IP reciever is designed to work with other ASI over IP units that we carry.

The F-GPSF GPS over fiber system is a transmitter and receiver pair used to transmit the RF Carrier signal from a GPS antenna to a remote location up to 10 Km. There are many advantages to converting the GPS Carrier to an optical signal for GPS over fiber. Fiber Optic cable is much less expensive than low loss coaxial cable used for RF signals. It is also much smaller and easier to work with. Optical signals are not affected by RF interference, therefore this system can be used to transport a GPS signal over fiber through a noisy RF environment. The F-GPSF can also be used to transport the GPS signal over fiber from a single GPS antenna to a multitude of locations throughout a building, aircraft, or ship.
The H-GPS is a high performance GPS clock used for highly accurate time and frequency signals. A GPS Clock is a combination of a GPS receiver and a high quality, stable oscillator. GPS is used to calibrate the oscillator to remove small biases in the frequency. The GPS Clock can synchronize both system timing and transceiver frequency, and is virtually fail-safe. It generates timing signals whenever there is power, and never needs to be re-calibrated. This is useful in any application where accuracy and stability are required. The H-GPS is popular in digital timecoding applications for media broadcast as well as in military and scientific applications.
