resi-linx launches digi-MOD HD digital DVB-T/DVB-C encoder/modulation system in EMEA

Australian supplier of structured cabling, RF and video distribution and IR control solutions, resi-linx, is entering the European, Middle Eastern and African markets with the local launch of its highly successful digital digi-MOD HD DVB-T/DVB-C encoder modulation system.

The digi-MOD HD digital DVB-T/DVB-C encoder modulation system, which allows integrators to distribute any high definition device around a home or business with ease, will be on display at the CABSAT Expo, 12-14 March 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE.


Initially available in two models - the HD-1000 (single input) and HD-2000 (dual input) - the digi-MOD HD system converts high definition sources into HD DVB-T/DVB-C channels for distribution over coaxial cable. Coming in April 2013 are the HD-4000 (four input) and HD-8000 (eight input) models, and the IP encoder range.

All models support signals up to 1080p and 'auto-sense' inputs between HDMI, Component and CVBS.

"Traditionally, to achieve distributed HD video, installers have used video matrix systems. The problem with this is that once you reach the capacity of a switch you have to include more hardware, which can be cost prohibitive to your clients," resi-linx business manager Jason Crabtree says.

"Additionally, matrix systems require additional cabling to modulator systems. Extra cabling presents additional opportunities for something to go wrong.

"Digital encoders, however, convert the signal into a DVB-T/DVB-C channel, which can be distributed to hundreds of TV sets, alongside free-to-air signals, without any additional equipment. There are no proprietary cables; installers simply use multiplex or diplexer mixed in to existing cable.

"Installers can simply walk into any existing building with a coax backbone and add this system within minutes, no matter how many displays are present.

"Then, when the signal is sent to the display, it appears as a normal TV channel. End users don't need to change inputs between HDMI, DTV, Component, etc. The picture is there, ready to go."

CABSAT 2013 attendees can experience digi-MOD HD in Hall 3, Stand B10 of the Dubai World Trade Centre, 12-14 March 2013.
