BDR Stock’s Updated AQT8-IP
BDR stock announced having unveiled the updated Aircaster AQT8 -IP on September 1st, 2021. The AQT8-IP is a comprehensive and flexible toolset to create custom IP and QAM channel lineups from any ATSC 1.0 off-air or QAM content source. The solution has proven to be ideal for facilities that are seeking to incorporate off-air video programming without paying additional retransmission fees for local cable or satellite services.
BDR Stock Changing Industry Landscape
Historically, off-air to digital rebroadcasting equipment have either been suitable for a single use or would only offer one-to-one conversion. A plethora of converters, splitters, amplifiers, and other equipment have been required in the creation of new channel lineups. This also applies to the correction of channel metadata for it to be fully compliant with standards.
Scope of AQT8-IP
The Aircaster AQT8-IP has the potential to reimagine what off-air rebroadcasting equipment can do in a single compact unit. This enables the customer lineups of up to 64 channels. These channels are accessible to thousands of residential homes in the case of service operators, or hundreds of rooms and TV sets for hospitality, institutional and SMB use cases. The technology easily creates and multiplexes a comprehensive digital media service, while mitigating unnecessary fees and equipment. The Aircaster AQT8 transmodulators are ideal for any fiber optic or cable service operator or commercial property, as well as video integrators with small and medium sized business (SMBs) customers.
Specifications of the AQT8-IP
The AQT8 requires only 1 RU and can accept up to 8 ATSC 1.0 off-air or QAM sources. Concurrently, the technology can output a series of either Single Program Transport Streams (SPTS) and/or Multi-Program Transport Stream (MPTS). This creates both a custom IP feed and/or QAM transmissions. It features an internal active splitter, which allows the Aircaster AQT8 to enable users to create and distribute several channels very easily.
