Motorola Introduces Innovative Video Distribution Solution For MDUs And Commercial Buildings
Encoder family provides cost effective solution for digital migration of channels for TV and expands local video services
April 07, 2009
HORSHAM, Pa. – April 7, 2009 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced its QUE100 QAM MicroEncoder, which allows operators to migrate the video content generated and consumed within multi-dwelling units (MDUs) and commercial buildings from analog to digital more easily and cost effectively. The QUE100 enables locally generated analog content, such as security camera feeds, to be incorporated seamlessly into the digital program lineup. This allows the owners of MDUs or hotels to take advantage of lower cost digital set tops for tenants while still providing easy access to this content as a tuneable digital channel.
“Leveraging our leadership and experience in video delivery systems, we are able to provide the MDU and commercial buildings market with an all-digital solution that has great benefit to tenants,” said Bob Wilson, general manager for Networked Video Solutions, Motorola. “Apartments, hospitals, hotels, schools and other commercial buildings with cable services can take advantage of the product family to deliver local analog video to all-digital set top populations reliably and cost effectively.”
As the strong growth in video consumption continues and service providers migrate to all-digital networks, the QUE100 simplifies the same digital migration for buildings and prevents the loss of services that were previously transmitted in analog. This plug and play product accepts existing local analog video feeds from parking lot cameras, door cameras, lobby cameras and facility cameras and other channels featuring content such as local events and delivers these channels in QAM modulated digital form to tenants’ set tops and digital televisions. Its standard QAM RF output merges into the buildings’ all-digital service lineup, creating a cost-efficient and easily deployed solution. The QUE100 family provides superior MPEG-2 SD video encoding and will be offered in several models provding up to 12 channels.
