Motorola has introduced its QUE100 QAM MicroEncoder, which allows operators to migrate the video content generated and consumed within multi-dwelling units and commercial buildings from analog to digital cost effectively.
According to the company, the QUE100 enables locally generated analog content, such as security camera feeds, to be incorporated seamlessly into the digital program lineup. This allows the owners of multi-dwelling units (MDUs) or hotels to take advantage of lower cost digital set tops for tenants while still providing easy access to this content as a tuneable digital channel.
Motorola said that its standard QAM RF output merges into the buildings’ all-digital service lineup, creating a cost-efficient and easily deployed solution. The QUE100 family provides MPEG-2 SD video encoding and will be offered in several models provding up to 12 channels.
Bob Wilson, general manager for networked video solutions at Motorola, said: Leveraging our leadership and experience in video delivery systems, we are able to provide the MDU and commercial buildings market with an all-digital solution that has great benefit to tenants.
Apartments, hospitals, hotels, schools and other commercial buildings with cable services can take advantage of the product family to deliver local analog video to all-digital set top populations reliably and cost effectively.
