The Drake Digital MEQ1000A is the industry’s first commercial-grade, multiplexing Hybrid QAM modulator. Ideal for applications where a single QAM output is required from each Hybrid QAM chassis, the MEQ1000A features a variety of plug-in input modules including an ATSC/QAM input tuner, a QPSK/8PSK input tuner, an ASI input, an IP input (future release), as well as a full selection of digital SD and HD encoder modules, bringing an unprecedented level of flexibility to cable operators.
The MEQ1000A has bays for up to two input modules. The video content from both modules enters the main chassis where it is MPEG program-filtered, multiplexed, and groomed. Any number of program streams may be sent to the QAM modulator for Output and/or be exported via the MEQ1000A’s ASI Output.
