232-ATSC 4 HDTV Tuner

232 ATSC 4 HDTV Tuner

The  232-ATSC 4 HDTV Tuner, our 4th-generation HDTV tuner, adds new capabilities to the industry-standard 232-ATSC series. New features include tuning MPEG-4 programs, up to 1080p output, and more efficient operation. The new tuner is fully compatible the previous 232-ATSC+1 tuner for control, operation, and rack mounting. 
The integrator-friendly HDTV tuner is controllable with 2-way RS-232 and IP Telnet, as well as wireless and wired IR commands. An onboard Web page enables remote Web control. A new menu-driven display simplifies setup, and a front-panel USB port makes firmware updates a snap. The new compact enclosure allows mounting of two tuners in a single rack space. 
A universal TV tuner, the 232-ATSC 4 can receive both analog and digital MPEG-2/MPEG-4 channels, in ATSC, NTSC, and clear QAM formats. Using an optional RF switcher, the tuner can switch between antenna and cable feeds.
