Booth #330.

Pico Digital will be highlighting the following products in their booth.

IPQ-PRO-12 & IPQ-LYNK - GbE IP-Input Edge QAM Systems for DISH Networks Systems
The IPQ-PRO-12 and IPQ-LYNK are two of the high performance edgeQAM solutions available through Pico Digital. These solutions were specifically designed to automatically discover and control any DISH UPnP receiver. This auto-discovery allows for easy integration, set-up and configuration of the DISH receivers through the IPQ-PRO or IPQ-LYNK web interface, in addition both units also provide an option for full set-up through the full front panel LED menu system. The IPQ-PRO and IPQ-LYNK accept multiple program channels protected by DTCP on a GbE input and applies either the Pro:Idiom or the Samsung LYNK encryption to the content with a combined QAM-RF output. Both of the IPQ-PRO and the IPQ-LYNK systems download DISH data to allow clear programming selection by channel name or number with auto updating as well as automatically transfers receiver configuration to a standby receiver when a source receiver is no longer available. As with all Pico Digital products, the IPQ-PRO and the IPQ-LYNK were designed with ease of setup, solid performance, intelligent resiliency, and extensible platform in mind.
