DAP (Digital/Analog Processor) accepts one input 8VSB (digital off-air) or QAM (digital cable) format, and delivers one output in modulated analog RF format. DAP PLUS is the same as DAP, but includes the AFD broadcast package.
AFD (Active Format Description) is a standard set of codes embedded in the video stream and used by digital television broadcasters to optimally display a 16:9 video format on an
analog television set designed for 4:3 video format.
- Decodes HDTV or SDTV digital signals and modulates to analog for transmission to traditional TVs
- The ASI output version decodes HDTV or SDTV digital signals and provides dual ASI outputs
- Accepts all ATSC digital input standards, 8VSB, 64 QAM, 256 QAM
- Outputs all broadcast and CATV channel assignments in the 54-864 MHz range
- Remotely Configure All DAPs in a Headend with Optional Remote Network Card in one DAP unit.
- Emergency Alert System (EAS) feature which can also be used as an alternate IF input
- Broadcaster Firmware Load Embraces AFD Control
The DAP PLUS is housed in a one rack high unit
and features a backlit 2 x 16 character LCD screen and push button navigation
switches to allow interaction with the simple to follow user menu functions for
programming. Input and output tuning is easily accomplished with either the
front panel menu interface or via the optional Remote Network Card; only one
per headend is needed for complete configuration and control. The DAP PLUS
supports standard EIA CATV, IRC, HRC and Broadcast channel plans in the 54-864
frequency range. All channel frequency information, with appropriate FCC
offsets, is pre-programmed and tuned electronically via microprocessor. The
unit is also equipped with the Emergency Alert System (EAS) feature which can
also be used as an alternate IF input.
