The front panel output test point provides a quick reference test point prior to channel combining equipment, saving time and service interruption during setup and maintenance. The A860 features rear panel interface connections for input of NTSC video and monaural and discrete left and right audio. The integrated stereo encoder (optional) will provide a BTSC stereo encoded output channel. MPX loop and 4.5 MHz (modulated) audio input connections are provided to bypass the internal stereo encoder for compatibility with external units; additionally, the MPX loop is useful when used with the EAS-12B emergency override system. A composite audio/video IF loop provides compatibility with scrambling encoders, ghost cancellers, and IF override applications. The unit conforms to FCC Docket 21006 for frequency accuracy. The MACOM line is backed by an industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
