24 HDMI model description
Thor Broadcast High Density H264 Encoder H-HDPerformux, specifically designed and made to handle up to 24 HDMI inputs and output via 1MPTS or 24SPTS.

Thor Broadcast High Density H.264 Encoder H-HDPerformux-XX, specifically designed and made to handle up to 24 HDMI inputs and output via 1MPTS or 24SPTS. This unit has a full functioning GUI (Graphical User Interface) that Thor has designed to help navigate creating all of your H.264 Streams with MPEG 1 Layer 2 Audio. Additionally you have a single ASI output that will mirror the MPTS output. Specifically featuring the QR code, Logo, and OSD insertion for cable operators that require this feature. Furthermore it has PID remapping, PCR and PSDI adjusting and editing as well. This 1RU unit can replace an entire headend with the high density 24 HDMI input chassis with easy operation and Thor Broadcast's leading warranty and free tech support from our lab in Los Angeles.

The newest iteration is the Thor Peformux+ Model which includes H.265 HEVC Encoding which can save you up to 75% of the bandwidth needed to stream.

Question and Answers
1)So the TV's all require RF coaxial cable correct? How many channels total? What is going to be the source of those channels, commercial set-top boxes? 2) We have various formats and options for RF modulation. Please let me know what is the standard that you require: QAM, ATSC, ISDBT, DVBT, etc Mpeg 2 or H264? 3) So you plan on putting an IPTV set-top box on every television? For IP input and HDMI output correct? For 24 channels you plan on using H264 compression? So, in this case the best product would be 24 HDMI H.264 MPEG4 Encoder H-HDPerformux-24, it encodes 24 HDMI sources for 24 SMPT's Multicast TS UDP streams. The IP STB will receive the streams and display them as an HDMI Video output, Those channels will be programmed into the IP STB and using the remote control you will access all your 24 TV programs on each STB on the network. This is the link to the IP-STB https://thorbroadcast.com/es/producto/compacto-ip-del-decodificador-set-top-box.html
Hello, we only have HEVC H.265 with HDMI inputs right now
would you use something like this with converters?
H-HDPerformux-4+ 4 channel HDMI to IP HEVC H.264&H.265 Encoder Streamer
You could potentially use converters so long that they would be compatible with all the needs of transmitting data.
I assume you have 3GSDI feeds?
so you'd have to make sure the converter can do 3G and HDMI to 1080p60
Even then, no telling if that would effect the unit
as far as timing? frame loss?
yeah all that. because a lot of those 3rd party converters will take short cuts to work, but not exactly a professional solution
so its a coin flip honestly.
so buy the cheapest converter I can find
so no encoders with native SDI input?
There might be some on the market, but we only have HDMI input models avaialble
They work really well, we just sold a ton of 24 HDMI input models, super high density
So, if I understand correctly, your consumer would like to use the Coaxial network, not the IP network to distribute the video?
We will be happy to talk about all the technical aspects of the project and advise the best solution, we can provide modulators if needed.
please check those units :
4 channel HDMI to COAX
8 channel HDMI  to Coax
or both
4Channel HDMI to COAX and IP at the same time :
We will be happy to talk about all the technical aspects of the project and advise the best solution, we can provide modulators if needed.
2)Cat 5 is passing Ethernet, the ethernet is a digital signal, Ethernet devices always re-clocks the signal, it is easy to determine if the 100m is an issue or not, you would have a link on the switch or not.

The 100m is a maximum CAT5 that can run.

If you do not have a link then you need to put an ethernet switch somewhere in between, or you can use point to point optical transceivers like those below, by using them you can extend Ethenet of many Km:


There is no CAT 5 amplifier, the ethernet doesn't have power like CATV RF

No, As I mentioned the Ethernet can not be stronger and weaker, it is a data stream signal

POE Switch does not do anything for this, POE switch can send DC power over the CAT 5 to power POE device like Camera, so you do not have to use external DC power supply, but it doesn't extend the range of the ethernet signal.

I want to implement IPTV, we will be a small ISP that will start soon
We will reach our clients through fiber optics to their homes
We want to mount the necessary equipment on our node to offer IPTV service.
But we don't know at all what equipment we need
We want to contract legal channels such as FOX, HBO, Discovery, etc. to be able to offer our clients these packages.
But first we need the equipment.
What equipment could they offer us?
Could we have a small meeting by videoconference?
I could send you the invitation is through Microsoft Teams, you can access it from the web browser of your cell phone or computer.
We only want to know about the IPTV equipment solutions that they could offer us.
Do you have your own headend? Where are the sources coming from?
We have lot of encoders for IPTV, but distribution is another process.
We have HDMI or SDI, but we need to know the protocol fro video, MPEG2 or H264; then the streaming protocol like RTP UDP RTMP etc there are many variations in the resolution and audio codecs as well we need to know more information about
ok currently we don't have the headend ready, we are under construction.
We want to search for sources, but we want our sources completely legal so as not to have problems of transmission by content, but we do not know with whom we can talk about it.
Well that starts with which country you are in, you need to speak with somebody in the government who can help you a little, or contact the cable TV companies
Essentially you will have several issues, from building the headend, getting access to those channels, and then distribution. Of which you will need make some sort of encryption effort, supply customer with set top boxes, and also lease the fiber. If this is all in one location or building then it is easier.
I do not want to retransmit a signal from cable companies.
I want to buy my own signal and pass it right to my clients.
Oh I see, then you will have to contact those companies directly, setup agreements and lease out those channels like any other cable company
Very good chance that they can let you access those channels direct from satellites, so you would pay a fee, get an access card, or code, and then you can use an IRD with CAS to get that data from satellites.
However I will mention our company does not get involved in any of that. We make and sell headend equipment.
You can use any program that can decode the protocol that you plan on using. 
If its a more common protocol like UDP/ RTP/ RTSP then you can use something like VLC that is freeware. 
Something like RTMP is commonly used with YouTube for live streaming. 
There's no shortage of programs that can decode; really depends on how you plan on encoding the signal, then identifying that protocol in a software. 
As for the best? That's more of personal preference. OBS is another Free program that plenty of people use. 
If you want to pay for one, there are dozens of professional studio decoding options available.
So I would start with which protocol you plan on using to stream; then go from there. 
If you have cat6 then you would need an IPTV encoder; something like this:
This will intake 8 inputs HDMI then convert to IPTV streams. 
At every room you will need a decoder to convert IP to HDMI for input into the televisions. 
So if there is one TV in every room, then you will need 50 decoders. 
Yes, we do RF to IP IPTV gateways, In the USA, CANADA, and MEXICO, you use the ATSC modulation standard.
The gateways have 8 or 16 DVB-T tuners and they can output UDP unicast or multicast stream for all TS's ( programs ) multiplexed on those  Channels.
So, for example, if ATSC ch 50  has 4 Video/ Audio TS programs, we can output all of them, and as a TS
We do not re-encode the video audio we are just passing it from RF to IP
You can use any decoder supporting UDP multicast or unicast to decode those streams
so any of those devices would work for you
