Mono and A2 or Nicam Stereo/Dual Sounds. TV Systems: B/G, D/K, I, L.
Range includes single (MCP-4xx) and twin (MCP-8xx) modulators. The twin ones integrate two modulators in one module.
IF modulation and SAW fltering for maximum harmonic reduction and true VSB response. Adjacent channel operation.
Frequency agility. Any selectable TV channel within the 45-862 MHz band. PLL frequency synthesized.
Built-in test pattern generator. In twin modulators, the two generated TV channels are combined internally to make up one bi-channel output signal. An MCP headend includes: - Single MCP-4xx and/or twin MCP-8xx Modulators. - One HPA amplifer that amplifes the sum of the combined output TV channels. - One or more CFP Power Supplies. - One or more Rack-Frames or wall-fxing Base-Plates. The base-plates can be joined horizontally. - Usually, housing units for the base-plates. - For large headends, one or more AMX-400 combiners. The MCP assembly provides a TV multichannel signal whose level is appropriate to feed the distribution network. An extension input at the HPA amplifer allows easy coupling of the wideband 47-862 MHz signal provided by an existing reception headend.
