IPTV & HDMI to Any HDTV Channel: QAM, DVB-C, ATSC, or DVB-T (diferent firmwarefor each format)
Thor H-OTT-CMOD series units are part of the popular CMOD series of digital HDTV encoder modulator systems formally known as VQAM. Like all CMOD systems, this platform is available in three versions for use with over 95% of the worlds broadband TV systems. Advances in technology have reduced component size to the scale that Thor can now integrate every system and component necessary for a digital HDTV headend into a single handheld unit. CMOD systems are combination devices that bundle a real time MPEG hardware encoder, DTV transport stream generator, and agile RF frequency modulator in a single enclosure. Any HDMI live video source can now be converted to an open TV channel for insertion and distribution over cable & antenna TV coax systems. The generated program can be viewed natively on any television set with its built in tuner.
The android operating system is incredibly flexible and open source platform. It is an ideal foundation for content distribution. The operating system itself is very well documented and supports HD playback. Both software and hardware decoding options are available to simplify application development. These CMOD compact encoder modulator systems include an integrated android set top box. From the modulator menu the user can either select the HDMI input source or the android IP STB input. The android box has access the the USB port for content storage and playback. Also provided is an IR input for use with an infra red remote control. The android installation is fully unlocked to allow developers to install their custom applications or programs available on the android Google play store. This is an ideal platform for distributed content distribution over public internet. Such as large chains of stores or restaurants. Contact a sales representative today.
HD digital modulators are an ideal platform for video distribution. Unlike traditional HDMI routers or video baluns; the cost of an HDMI modulator system decreases proportionally with an increase in the number of displays. Traditional systems like HDMI distribution amplifiers and matrix routers increase exponentially in cost with the number of displays goes up. With a coax distribuiton system this is the opposite effect. When you add more displays your cost per television actually goes down due to the low cost of running coax cable vs HDMI routers and amplifiers. To add additional displays no additional equipment is needed, just more coax cable. This type of simple video distribution opens more doors for flexible system installation and implementation. The addition of the android set top box allows these boxes to be custom developed for high level system integration. Imagine a chain of stores or resturaunts that all playout the same looped content to a series of coax networked displays. Then imagine being able to control this content dynamically from one central internet login. This is what is capible with a platform like this. You can integrate your own custom designed google based android application that
