Highlights to Include HD and IP Encoders, HD QAM Set-Top Box, and miniCMTS
May 1, 2017 San Diego, California - Pico Digital, an ATX Networks company, today announced that the company will be exhibiting at the DISH Network 2017 Team Summit, taking place May 17-19 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas. In booth 217, Pico Digital will showcase its professional-grade PD1000 HD encoder modulation system, PD100 single-channel HD IP encoder, HD-2 HD QAM set-top box, and mini cable modem termination system (miniCMTS) for commercial and residential properties, academic and medical facilities, as well as the hospitality industry.

At the 2017 Team Summit, visitors to Pico Digital's booth will see how the company's latest encoders provide high performance in a single rack space for local area network applications. The PD1000 allows users to encode HD, HD-SDI, and SD signals in MPEG2 or H.264 formats. The unit supports real-time encoding, while offering the flexibility of two, four, six, or eight HDMI (in the clear), component, and composite (closed captioning) inputs. Allowing local programming to be cost-effectively inserted into satellite feeds, the PD100 accepts HDMI in the clear, component, or composite video input with auto detection, and audio input via embedded HDMI, digital S/PDIF, or analog. Both encoders on display enable remote control and monitoring via an intuitive web interface and offer closed captioning.

For non-encrypted clear QAM applications, Pico Digital will showcase its HD-2 set-top box, which can be deployed as a stand-alone unit. Featuring an auto-scanning QAM tuner and support for 64 and 256 QAM inputs, the HD-2 set-top box offers HDMI and composite outputs, PVR/media player capabilities, electronic program guide (EPG) support, an intuitive HD interface for ease of use, and an analog output for display on legacy TVs.

For the cost-effective delivery of high-speed data services, Pico Digital will be highlighting its miniCMTS200a, which supports up to 400 DOCSIS 2.0 modems, or 250 DOCSIS 3.0 plus 150 DOCSIS 2.0 modems. With 16 downstream bonded channels for up to 800-Mbps downstream and four upstream channels offering 120-Mbps upstream data delivery, the unit easily copes with today's demand for over-the-top (OTT) video services or managed IPTV services.

The annual Team Summit is a three-day networking and educational event attended by DISH Network retailers. As part of the event, the Summit Expo allows attendees to source new products and services to help grow their businesses.
