S-A Adds HD Help10/30/2003 4:23 AM Eastern
Scientific-Atlanta Inc. is offering cable operators two new "Continuum DVP" demodulators to capture off-air HDTV signals from local broadcasters.
The new demodulators can convert 8-VSB (vestigial sideband) digital signals for delivery to cable-system QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) modulators.
The two devices are the "D6238" modulator and the "D6239" demodulator/multiplexer. S-A said operators can use the devices to receive signals directly or as a backup in case of a fiber cut.
