Contemporary Research is excited to announce the immediate availability of the ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner with SDI and HDMI outputs and featuring IPTV streaming output. The ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner is the 3rd Generation of the popular ATSC-SDI HDTV Tuner series offering tuning H.264 programs up to 1080p. The new ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner now features the ability to pass through an IPTV stream from the received digital channel over the ethernet output for decoding by any industry standard MPEG 2 or H.264 decoder.

Known for its exceptional quality and reliability, the ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner receives both digital MPEG-2/H.264 and analog channels, in ATSC (8VSB), clear QAM, and NTSC formats. Using an optional RF-AB switch, the tuner can switch between antenna and cable feeds.

The ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner is controllable with 2-way RS-232, IP Telnet and UDP, as well as wireless and wired IR commands. An onboard Web page enables remote configuration, control, and monitoring. A new menu-driven display simplifies setup.

The integral HD-SDI output allows inclusion of 708/608 captioning, choice of AES stereo or AC-3 audio. Video output resolution can be set to auto or scaled to a fixed 1080p, 1080i, 720p, or 480i resolution.

The new ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner is fully compatible with control commands for previous models and its compact enclosure allows mounting of two tuners side-by-side in a single rack width.

The ATSC-SDI 4i HDTV Tuner is available now and will be available for demonstration in booth 3115 at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando June 12-14th.
