8 × HDMI to 4 × DVB-T/C & IP

The new HCL-824CT headend from Compact Line 2 series is a very powerful, all-in-one device, able to receive up to 8 HDMI signals and convert them in 4 DVB-T/C RF output channels while offering 1 Gbit IPTV streaming simultaneously. It supports "pool" technology, meaning that the user is able to select any program from any of the 8 inputs and assign it to any of the 4 RF + IP outputs, thus providing great flexibility.

A powerful CPU (Quad core @ 1.8GHz / 2GB RAM) is responsible for controlling the device using Linux OS while providing a friendly and very fast user interface as well as the ability of remote or local control of the device via Ethernet.

Its small size and powerful features render the HCL-824CT the ideal solution in the cases that we want to distribute HDMI content eg. coming from STBs or BluRay sources to a CATV installation using the DVB-T/C and IP technology.

Finally, the HCL-824CT is able to host an IPTV middleware (Fleex Embedded), without the need of any external server, providing the capability to the final user to control all TV monitors in an installation (LG, Samsung, Philips and custom STBs supported) while offering a variety of different features like Live TV, Live Radio, Info channels, Cast, Weather, Alarm, EPG and many more.
