Signal decoding


The TV EXPLORER HD ATSC is a specially designed instrument to aide the installation, maintenance and surveillance of terrestrial, satellite and cable TV systems in North America.

The  TV EXPLORER HD ATSC  is the first field strength meter (analyzer) of its kind to incorporate all the measurements and functions necessary to ensure proper reception of High Definition Television (HD). As in the rest of the TV EXPLORER products, size, weight and strength continue to be optimal.

It incorporates an MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 H.264 video decoder that makes it possible to display high-definition content, in addition to standard definition at all popular video resolutions (1080i, 720p and 480i). The audio is compatible with Dolby Digital Plus, AAC, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 audio formats.

Inputs and outputs incorporate ASI-TS, plus HDMI, for connections that require high speed data transfer.

The TV EXPLORER HD ATSC is the first field strength meter that can be proved as true HDTV instruments.

It includes all the advanced features required by the HDTV and also incorporates a Dolby Digital Plus decoder and total compatibility (measurements and image demodulation) with 8VSB (ATSC).

HDTV content is expensive to produce and therefore it is usually protected by encryption. Once again the TV EXPLORER HD ATSC is setting new standards with its CAM interface that allows the encrypted high definition programs to be displayed as well.
