QAM & IP to Analog RF
The Terrace TC600E MDU gateway is a multi-channel digital to analog RF converter with support for MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 content from QAM and IP(1) sources. The TC600E accepts any combination of up to 36 QAM channels and up to 36 Multicast or Unicast IP(1) streams up to a maximum total input bitrate of 940 Mbps. Up to 36 programs sourced from the QAM inputs can be decrypted using 6 Multi-Stream CableCARDs™. Multicast and Unicast IP streams must not be encrypted. The TC600E can decode up to 36 MPEG-2 HD/SD, 36 MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 SD, or 24 MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 HD programs, and output up to 36 NTSC analog channels. The Terrace TC600E is a flexible, compact and cost effective way to bring a digital lineup back into the analog realm for a commercial or MDU bulk account.
