ATX is featuring its newly expanded MAXNET II and SignalOn 1.218 GHz bandwidth RF management platforms, along with its new UCrypt IP to PAL gateway, at this year’s ANGA COM in Cologne.
ATX offers three CCAP compliant, modular RF management platforms: MAXNET II, SignalOn, and MAXNET. To support DOSCIS 3.1, ATX has expanded active and passive options in MAXNET II and SignalOn to 1.218 GHz bandwidth, as well as high isolation broadcast/narrowcast combiner solutions.
MAXNET II is an ultra-dense, MCX/F connector-based RF solution with SNMP/web remote control/monitoring. SignalOn is a high density, F/BNC connector-based RF/L-Band solution. Active products in all three series include: amplifiers, power supplies, RF detector A/B switches, and analogue return optical receivers.
ATX’s next generation UCrypt IP to PAL (IP2PAL) gateway is designed for conversion of IP video streams to PAL in a space-efficient (1RU) and cost-effective manner. This device can ingest up to 60 MPEG-2/H.264, HD/SD video streams and convert them to PAL. Future versions of the IP2PAL will include support for decryption of Verimatrix and other DVB® CSA-based streams. UCrypt devices are also available in the following formats: QAM to IP, QAM to QAM, QAM to Analogue, IP to QAM, and IP to IP.
UCrypt IP to PAL devices are ideal for:
• Rebuilding a PAL/NTSC analogue RF channel lineup in an all-IP headend
• Distributing analogue RF to bulk accounts with non-digital TVs
