Drake Digital DTD1000 Module and ASI II ModuleDrake Digital DTD1000 Module and ASI II Module

The DTD1000 input module tunes any 8VSB or QAM channel between 54 and 1002 MHz, making it ideal for digital channel processing applications where a single digital video signal is received, error-corrected, clocked (at a user determined fixed rate) and re-modulated on the same or another RF channel.

The DTD1000 may be used to convert one off-air ATSC 8VSB signal to a QAM output with rate adjustment or, when used in the processor mode with only one input, the MEQ1000 can process ATSC or CATV QAM MPEG-2 inputs.

ASII ASI Input Module

The ASII module is for use in the MEQ1000. One module provides one DVB-ASI SPTS or MPTS input for the MEQ1000. One or two ASII modules may be used in a MEQ1000.

Using the ASII module, programs may be input to the MEQ1000 where they will be program filtered, retimed, and multiplexed with programs from the other input module.

The ASII module can accept data rates up to 80 Mbps. Possible sources are satellite IRDs, output from a fiber link, encoders, terrestrial demodulators, video servers and other related equipment.

The ASII also provides an ASI output which provides a looped out copy of the ASI stream coming into the ASI input port of the same ASII module.
