For over 10 years Contemporary Research has manufactured the most reliable HDTV Tuner in the AV Industry. The most recent version of the Tuner, the 232-ATSC 4K offers video output scaling up to 4K, the ability to decode channels up to 1080p, and now the option for IP streaming via Ethernet output.
The new IP streaming option offers new features for IPTV network integration. Starting with Version 2.01 firmware, users can stream off-air or QAM channels and output the tuned MPEG stream as a Unicast or Multicast AV Over IP Stream. Channels may also be embedded into digital signage players. Broadcasters will find the new firmware useful when installing the 232-ATSC 4K HD Tuner at their antenna sights to monitor the signal over VPN.

In addition to the new IP features, the 232-ATSC 4K is a commercial HDTV tuner that can receive both analog and digital off-air, analog, and clear QAM cable channels, controllable via RS-232, Ethernet, and IR. Full interactive control and configuration is also available from onboard Web pages. The 232-ATSC 4K is compatible with control systems from AMX, Crestron, Extron, RTI and others. The new 232-ATSC 4K tuners are fully compatible with the RS-232, Telnet, and IR commands as previous Contemporary Research ATSC tuners.
“We are excited to offer IPTV network features to our ATSC tuner series, many of which are requested by AV integrators and customers. Our tuners have been proven in thousands of installations and are constantly improved in response to user demand and advances in technology,” says Scott Hetzler, President and Chief Engineer.
