Question and Answers
Answer:
So our Petit units sound like they would be a better fit for you. However when you say you can put these on adjacent channels, are all your modulators set to be next to each other, or is this the effect of having ATSC and you're not using a channel filter? You can set the PETIT units to any channel you want, so long as there is nothing else on that frequency, so you can put 5 of them on channels 20-24 with no issue. The second option would be using this 4 channel HDMI modulator H-THUNDER-4, also has the ability to generate any frequency ( CATV QAM or ATSC Channels ) independently, So it doesn't have to adjacent, it can be spread out all over the spectrum. https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-4-8-hdmi-digital-rf-encoder-modulator-full-hd-up-to-8230.html/238 The 8 channel HDMI H-HDCAX-8 has the ability to have separate coax channels per HDMI input https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-8-hdmi-digital-rf-modulator-cc-closed-captioning.html/95

Answer:
Currently, all of our models are generally uncompressed SDI or HDMI input. NDI is already encoded IP stream, each stream would need to be decoded to HDMI or SDI in order to connect to the encoder. Are you planning to use IP STB's for each TV? The other option would be using Modulators and deliver the video as a modulated DVB-T channels, the latency would be much better than Video over IP Please check this product: https://thorbroadcast.com/product/8-channel-hdmi-and-sdi-clear-catv-rf-modulator-qam-8230.html
Answer:
US ATSC standard Audio format is AC3, All the TV's sold in US support AC3 Dolby Audio, many TV's supports also MPEG2
Answer:
The front panel was made for quick adjustments on the fly like changing the channel. Very simple options on this unit. The process for changing encoding from cable to ATSC from the front panel of the H-HDMI-RF-Petit First: Use the up arrow to select the channel you want (i.e. C015 for channel 15)Second: Once you selected the desired channel, press the menu button (the middle button in between the up and down arrows. Looks like a box with three lines)               The menu button brings you to three options J83b, dhOF (or dhON) and ASRThird: select the option of J836. Once there use the up arrow to go to ATSC (look more like ARSC from the front panel) [easy way to tell ATSC from ASR is that its 4 digits]Fourth: Once on the ATSC press the down arrow to lock it in place. Now you are ready to modulate the H-HDMI-RF-Petit over the air with ATSC! In-depth system changes like switching the modulation format can be done from the GUI which is used through any web browser once connected to a switch or a PC. This is a link how to the pdf explaining how to connect it to PC https://thorbroadcast.com/upload/files/394/how-to-connect-h-hdmi-rf-pettit-to-pc-via-ethernet.pdf
Answer:
Yes, please set the HDMI modulator to ATSC modulation, The tivo support ATSC off-air, doesn't support Cable DVB-C j83b modulation. Scan Tivo tuner, it will find generated by the modulator digital channel
Answer:
So long as the Apple TV is outputting broadcast resolution that our modulator can see; the HDMI input will only detect common DVB resolutions, 480i, 720p 1080i/60, 1080p/60 or 59.95 etc We have many customers using the product like this. Works great so long as you set to any of this video formats outputs from your device
Answer:
So our unit is a modulator, just like the Drake units you have. So essentially if the Drake units are on fixed RF channels, you need to find a channel that' open/clear. If the drake units are broadcasting on channels, 20-28 then you can place our device on channel 29 so it is not being used. Furthermore, you need to also add our unit to the combiner. If the Drake combiner is only an 8 port and all being used, you can use a simple 2 to 1 combiner, the output of the Drake units, and the output of our units into the 2 to 1 combiner, then the output of that will have channels 20-29 now. This can be directly injected into the amplifier you have on hand and into the rest of your coax infrastructure. You can keep adding modulators, you just need to add them via a combiner like the drakes. So if you want to add 8 more Petite modulators, just get another 8 to 1 passive combiner to combine all the Petites, same as the Drakes, then you can combine the Drakes and Petites by using a second 2 to 1 combiner, or just loop the output of the drakes into one of RF input ports on the second combiner. You just have to make sure all of the units are outputting their programs on different RF channels. By doing this you can add as many units as you have available channels, which is about 135 on the RF QAM spectrum. Each output from each modulator just needs to be combined, so long as they are set to different channels, this should be a seamless addition. Let me know if that makes sense. I can assist in breaking down the process a little further if you like. We have also 4CH H-THUNDER-4 or 8 channel integrated HDMI modulators H-HDCOAX-8, it might be more convenient than using separate Pettit's: there are the links : https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-4-8-hdmi-digital-rf-encoder-modulator-full-hd-up-8230.html/238 https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-8-hdmi-digital-rf-modulator-cc-closed-captioning.html/95
Answer:
The quick answer is Yes, you can combine Cable RF or ATSC off-air RF signal with our modulators. What kind of modulation are you using on the Pettit modulator? cable QAM or ATSC? Please note that cable TV's are using QAM, so please set the modulations to QAM, that could be one reason. The Petit modulator has a passive 2x1 combiner built into the unit, The combiner has 4.5db loss if you are going from one unit to the second, the Cable TV signal is losing about 9db. Instead of looping through please use external 3x1 combiner, the power from your Cable TT company and power from our modulators needs to be set to similar levels. If you do not have an RF meter, you would need to do some troubleshooting, and educated guessing to see if you can find a happy medium. Please connect it to the combiner first and scan your TV, if you still have only 2 channels from the modulator, please attenuate our signal 5 or 10db on both modulators and scan again
Answer:
We have actually better unit for you H-THUNDER-4 https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-4-or-8-hdmi-digital-rf-encoder-modulator-8230.html/238 Distributing HD signals over existing coax is a very simple task. Our unit will take 1 or more videos and it will create Digital CATV RF QAM or ATSC Off the air channels, By scanning the TV's you will find them and display it. Few Questions How many videos from the PTZ cameras do you have? What is the format of SDI or HDMI? Drake 300VMF+ is an analog modulator, so it created Analog NTSC modulated channel. Our modulators create digital QAM or ATSC, so the TV's in the retirement home need to support it. If the customers would have old tube analog Tv's, QAM STB's would be needed.
Answer:
Please check if your second "link" LED is ON, it indicates that our modulator recognize HDMI video resolusion, If the LED is OFF, please change the Video resolution output on your Chrome stick or Fire stick device video output menu to 720p, 1080i or 1080p/59.94 or 60Hz Did you try to rescan your TV? Are you using QAM or ATSC modulation? Our unit ships with QAM out of the box, so double-check what you are using as CATV input standard on your TV and Rescan the demodulation standard. Also, the RF output power might be too high for some TV's please add 10db attenuation on the Modulator setting page, For the TV's which do not support DVB-C Annex B QAM, please set our modulator to ATSC and re-scan the antenna input. If you need support our number is 800-521-8467 ext2, we will be happy to help
Answer:
Please Log in to the unit via NMS, please go to SYSTEM PARAMETERS MODULATION SETTINGS Password is THOR Change format to DVBT, there are the other selections for ATSC, Annex A, Annex B, and ISDB-T
Answer:
Our digital modulator will work in a very similar way as your analog AV analog modulator, but it will generate a much better video quality image. The generated image will be like the original HDMI plugged into the TV. Our modulator will take that HDMI source form your satellite receiver with the following resolutions, 720p/1080i or 1080p 59.94hz/60hz will generate any channel the same way as the analog modulator. The TV will scan this new digital channel and it will display truly HD beautiful high-quality image. we have many customers in Saudia Arabia and attire the middle east region, and because our modulator generates all world modulation standards, it works anywhere in the world on any standard TV, you will use DVB-C QAM annex B, same as in the US. We have also 4 and 8 HDMI modulators available, there are the links: https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-4-or-8-hdmi-digital-rf-encoder-modulator-8230.html/238 https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-8-hdmi-digital-rf-modulator-cc-closed-captioning.html/95 or this is 8 channel hybrid H-Hybrid-RF-8 modulator equipped with 8HDMI and 8 SDI inputs https://thorbroadcast.com/product/8-channel-hdmi-and-sdi-clear-catv-rf-modulator-qam-8230.html
Answer:
Thank you for your feedback. The most important settings can be accessed by from front panel LCD and buttons, you can change it modulated channel number and modulation format Cable QAM or Off-Air ATSC We realized that the IP settings connection might be confusing, this is why we made a very detailed PDF IP connection document describing step by step options. Also, we created an educational video and posted on youtube: PDF https://thorbroadcast.com/upload/files/394/how-to-connect-hdmi-rf-petit-to-pc-via-ethernet.pdf video instructions https://youtu.be/TogiV2mxAUc The unit has the ability to be set to DHCP and receive an IP address automatically, the only problem with that is that many consumers would not actually know what the assigned IP is, that information would be available by logging into your residential Gateway or cable modem, but it is also not so straight forward, we chose the option to have static default IP address 192.168.1.10 because many routers operate on 192.168.1. XX subnet, in case, if that subnet is different than customers, they can temporarily adjust their network nic card to this default subnet. This is why we created more detailed documentation and instructions; we hope it clarifies this. Once you log into the unit and adjust the desired channel and modulation, this is most likely the only one time you need to do that, you will also have the option to set the unit to DHCP; after the reboot the modulator will get its own IP from the router and will be automatically accessible on your network, but you will need to log into the router manually to check assigned IP address the unit will be listed as THOR PETIT,
Answer:

So if you have an old RF modulator, you're essentially making a channel; so on the other end, you need to decode that channel.

https://thorbroadcast.com/product/catv-rf-and-atsc-rf-to-hdmi-decoder-stb-8230.html

You can also take HDMI output from your Video source and make a Digital channel using H-HDMI-RF-PETIT modulator, HDMI IN - QAM RF Out, then decoded same way using QAM STB H-STB-QAM-ATSC

Answer:

In order to circumvent the 500ms delay from the encoding times between the HDMI and Looopout you can bypass the HDMI completely and utilize both the RF ports on the Petit. Even though they say "RF IN" and "RF OUT", they can both be used to send RF signals Out without a delay because they are both being encoded at the same rate. You can even connect an RF Splitter/Combiner to those ports so you can connect TVs all throughout your facility at the same encoding time. 

Answer:
The modulator needs to process the video content, and it has about 250ms delay, please find a link to the test we did.
The best way to eliminate any delay would be not to use the HDMI pass-through by connecting your local TV to the same modulator RF output.
RF output connected to 1x2 or 1x4 RF splitter/combiner and connect all tvs to the coax network, this way all TV's will be in sync because all of them would decode the same RF signal.
If you do not have an RF splitter, you can actually connect local TV to the petit RF Input, The input port will have this channel viable as well but 3.4db lower than output; but that will work for your needs.
Answer:

Do you have any more information about what the application necessitates besides HDMI? Do you require certain resolution or audio capability? Is the latency or size of a unit an issue? We have a plethora of units that can fit the information you provided. The Petit would seem fine, or the AC3-CMOD, we also have multi-channel units like the Thunder-4... All can take HDMI and output to RF

this is a link to the 8 channel H-HDXOAX-8

https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-8-hdmi-digital-rf-modulator-cc-closed-captioning.html/95

2) The modulator should be able to feed all of the TV's. I would think you'd want to put it near the other Comcast gear. But it does it's 2 blocks away? Is there another headend room or electronics closet closer to the facility you can put the equipment in? In either case, you can use the RF Petit, or you can use something like the Thunder-4 for multiple HDMI inputs. All you need is a coax combiner, to get the feed from Comcast and our units together. You also should find out which channels are being unused by Comcast so you can put the QAM channels on open frequencies. Comcast also to Inject local video insertion at channel 134 it will show as a channel 1901,1902,1903,1904

Answer:
So in order to put 2 inputs on one RF channel, you need a slightly more advanced unit with a higher grade encoding chip that can handle the task. 

If you plan on only needing 2 HDMI inputs and don't plan on extending to any further channels, we have a 2 HDMI input model that fits the bill
 
 
If you think the client will need more at some point, we also have a 4 channel HDMI input modulator that will work. 
All these units are in stock and will do what you require.
