The new high capacity H-12HDMI-QAM-IPLL Encoder Modulator from Thor Broadcast has a new sophisticated redesigned platform for enabling modulation of up to 12 HDMI sources and 12 CVBS CC(Closed Caption) sources simultaneously. This unit has the ability to ingest IP Transport Streams and multiplex them among the RF output channels, similarly you can also input a single ATSC (or other RF modulation standard) and add its transport streams among the QAM output. This unit comes standard with a plethora of options to help you add extra transport streams from various media to build your own RF headend quickly and easily without extra hardware.
The H-12HDMI-QAM-IPLL supports MPEG2 and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video encoding and MPEG1 Layer II audio encoding (MPEG-2 AAC, MPEG-4 AAC Optional), Dolby Digital AC3, as well as AC3 pass through.
Create your own digital signage systems, and add HDMI sources to your existing QAM cable system in a single 1RU high density encoder modulator from Thor.
Since QAM 256 contains 38Mbps data storage, it means we can use all that bandwidth to place several programs via multiplexing on a single RF channel, each 6Mhz can carry any encoded video bitrate so long as they don't exceed the 38mbps total. For example, if we have a 4 source modulator, we can set the encoded bit rate on each video to 9.5Mbps, so 9.5 x 4 = 38Mbps. We can fit all of those programs in one QAM 256 channel.
So let's say that we choose 57mhz, which is CH2 on the QAM RF spectrum, we will be able to modulate 4 video's onto channels 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 simultaneously.
This is important in case we want to insert multiple video programs on limited RF space occupied by different channels from the cable company; or other modulators creating channels in your CATV lineup.

Looking at the 12 HDMI version so we can hook up some computer players to play out still images for menu boards/graphics
I would love to know those options! We may have future expansions, but the best thing I liked about this is I could cram 6 sub-channels on each channel, I am wanting to add in as few channels as possible for right now.
And we would just need the RF output, but we may investigate IP solutions in the future.
We are now stuck into pushing slides out for menu boards and logos around the building, we have some computers that auto boot into playing graphics full screen that we can update on the fly with jpegs or whatever we need. I am wanting to take those, push them in to our RF system so we aren’t having to sneaker-net usb drives to the TV’s anymore.
In addition to that, (separately, but I’d like to generate some numbers for my boss so we can hopefully futureproof now vs react later) I am looking at needing a RF over fiber since our main head end (our plant/distribution center) is getting full (equipment-wise), I want to expand to our second location since we will have more buildings coming online in the future, and I am seeing that we may need more of these still graphics/computer feeds.
