Contemporary Research QMOD-HDSC HDTV Modulator

CR QMOD™ technology is opening the door to new HDTV applications. The QMOD-HDSC HDTV Scaler Modulator is the first HD modulator specifically designed for digital signage integration. The onboard in-stream scaler ingests signage at PC resolution, converting the output to 1080i or 720p video. In addition the scaler features up and down-scaling, zoom, shrink, and positioning.

  • Create your own on-site HDTV broadband distribution system using a variety HD, SD, and AV sources
  • Distribute digital signage, satellite, cable, and media as HD digital cable channels over existing broadband wiring
  • View HD sources at any destination using HDTV displays or tuners


  • Super-easy scaling for VGA or Component input up to 1920x 1080 (see resolution list in Specifications), Auto-scales by resolution, format in two simple steps:
    • Horizontal - Up/down arrows zoom and shrink, left/right move image on horizontal axis
    • Vertical - Left/Right rows move image up and down, Up/Down zooms and shrinks vertically
    • Clock Phase ƒ_" adjust scanning to optimize image
    • QMOD-HDSC automatically saves formatting for each resolution and refresh rate
  • Converts PAL video to NTSC
  • Accepts NTSC composite video, user can switch between NTSC video and HD input, or use GPI inputs to switch to EAS video/audio input
  • Employs pro-grade HD encoding by NTT that minimizes artifacts for motion video and signage "tickers"
  • Merges audio with video from analog stereo, digital optical and coax inputs
  • Responds to GPI inputs to switch to EAS composite video and audio
  • Creates a high-definition 720p/1080i MPEG-2 stream for broadcast
  • Delivers a fully agile QAM 64/256 digital cable channel 2-135
  • Amplifies for distribution over an on-site broadband cable system with adjustable output level to 29 dBmV, compatible with all cable format broadband systems
  • Sets up with front-panel buttons and easy to use menus, including inputs, encoding, channel, and RF options.
  • Integrates with RS-232 control and feedback with simple ASCII commands
  • Powers up in less than 4 seconds, no OS overhead
  • Saves power and rack space using efficient design, fan-free cooling, and compact enclosure
  • Includes compact switching power supply
  • Mounts in optional 1RU single (RK1) or dual (RK2) 19" rack kits
  • Meets RoHS safety and California energy standards.


  • Connect one source to VGA, Component, or S-Video/Composite inputs
  • Component pass-through on RGB connector allows use of locking BNC-HD15 cable for professional sources and connection of scaler component video via HD15-HD15 cable
  • Process VGA video as needed
  • Connect audio to digital optical, coax, or stereo audio inputs
  • Select inputs, channel, resolution, and RF output parameters from front-panel menus
