Drake DSE24A HD Video Encoder with QAM output

During the past five years, millions of digital flat panel television displays have been placed where we work, shop, vacation, educate ourselves and even where we sleep. Most display devices deployed in these locations receive content via a traditional coaxial CATV type distribution network. The intent of facility owners such as in the hospitality industry is to create a home environment for their customer. Savvy entrepreneurs have come to realize there is an opportunity to offset the costs of digital flat panel displays by allowing advertisers access to these units for targeted messaging directly to consumers while they engage in activities away from home. Drake introduces a high quality and affordable solution that uses the legacy coaxial cable network to connect digital signage content providers with millions of existing flat panel displays where consumers are most likely to view them.

Drake's DSE24 will encode a single uncompressed program derived from devices with HDMI, Component Video or VGA outputs to HD MPEG2 video. An internal QAM modulator and low noise upconverter allows existing legacy fiber/coax networks to be used as distribution channels for digital signage content. This provides instant access to an extensive network of digital displays capable of viewing valuable advertiser based or informational video in a vibrant "High Definition" format.

The DSE24A comes in a convenient desk top package.
