  • Amplifiers

    A Cable amplifier boosts your Antenna or Cable TV signals.
  • Antennas

    A TV Antenna or off air Antenna is used when the Broadcast signals in your area are just too weak to receive with the indoor type, rabbit ear antenna. An outdoor antenna is typically mounted on a mast and can be mounted either in your attic or on the outside of your home above your roof for reception of both VHF and UHF signals. If you are looking for local programming such as ABC, CBS, FOX etc. an outdoor antenna is an excellent option.
  • Modulators & Processors

    A Modulator will deliver a single channel of video and audio to your television. Modulators can be ordered in fixed channel or agile. Agile gives the ability to change the output channel whenever needed as opposed to the fixed channel modulator, which will never change.
  • Encoders

    An Encoder is used to take various types of analog and digital inputs, such as Composite Video, Component Video or (HDMI unencrypted) along with audio, and turn them into a 1080I, 720P or 4800I/P Digital program. Outputs from an Encoder include: ASI, IP or QAM.

    Encoders are used in Digital Signage, Broadcast and Cable Distribution applications as well as in the home environment to enhance the quality of video to the TV.
  • Encoder Acronyms

    ES Elementary Stream

    The output of an audio or video encoder. ES contains only one kind of data, e.g. audio, video or closed caption. An elementary stream is often referred to as "elementary", "data", "audio", or "video" bitstreams or streams. The format of the elementary stream depends upon the codec or data carried in the stream, but will often carry a common header when packetized into a packetized elementary stream.

    ETM Embedded Trace Macrocell

    A hardware macrocell that, when connected to a processor, outputs trace information on a trace port. The ETM provides processor driven trace through a trace port compliant to the ATB protocol. An ETM always supports instruction trace, and might support data trace.

    MUX Multiplexer

    A multiplexer (or mux) is a device that selects one of several analog or digital input signals and forwards the selected input into a single line.

    Null Packet

    When carrying MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 video via MPEG-2 Transport Streams, something called Null Packets are regularly inserted by encoders and distribution systems. These Null Packets are inserted for many reasons and sometimes for no reason at all. One reason they are inserted is to pad-up variable bit rate content so as to produce a constant bit rate transport stream.

    What is an MPEG Null Packet? It is a regular sized MPEG transport stream packet of 188 bytes in length with a few header bits set so to indicate that the contents of the remaining 184 bytes is meaningless. Null packets are not permitted to contain the PCR timing fields used for synchronization.

    NIT Network Information Table

    Shows the physical organization and characteristics of the network

    PAT Program Association Table

    The entry point for Program Specific Information (PSI); Moving Pictures Experts Group 2 (MPEG-2) data that identifies what parts of a stream belong to a particular program. The PAT is always carried in packets with a packet ID (PID) that equals 0. Packets in the same elementary stream all have the same PID and the decoder can select the elementary stream or streams it wants and reject the remainder. Each entry in the PAT points to a Program Map Table (PMT) that lists the elementary streams making up each program. Also carried in the metadata is the information that some programs will be open and some may be subject to encryption.

    PCI Peripheral Component Interconnect

    Defines the electrical characteristics and signal protocol used for two devices to communicate over a computer's central bus. PCI network adapters and other devices exist in several different shapes and sizes called "form factors."

    PCR Program Clock Reference

    PCR Jitter

    Term used to name some aspects of frequency instability. The difference between the actual value of the PCR time stamped by the encoder and the expected value of the PCR, calculated by the decoder based on the clock rate and the time at which the PCR value is received.
