VideoPropulsion Launches PCI Express Adapter Supporting 24 QAM Channels

Share Article

VideoPropulsion expands its line of DVB-C standards compliant PCI/PCIe adapters with the announcement of its flagship QN24e. The high-density card supports up to 24 QAM channels with two on-board gigabit Ethernet interfaces and 64-bit drivers for Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and other popular host operating systems.

QN24e PCI Express Adapter With 24 QAM Channels And Two Onboard Gigabit Ethernet Ports

Complies with ITU-T J.83 standards for Annex A, B, and C - giving the adapter world-wide compatibility right out of the box.

VideoPropulsion® (OTC:VPTV), now in its 40th year of continuous operation, is thrilled to announce the expansion of its line of PCI/PCIe modulator cards with the launch of the QN24e. Sporting a whopping 24 QAM channels on a single adapter, the DVB-C standards compliant QN24e also includes two on-board gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

VideoPropulsion offers a QN24e software development kit (SDK) that includes 32-bit and 64-bit drivers along with sample command-line applications supporting a number of host computer operating systems including Linux and FreeBSD, and Windows. The SDK provides documentation that allows OEM system builders to quickly prototype and build their own MPEG stream processing systems for multiplexing and modulating MPEG-Systems Transport Streams.

The QN24e collects and multiplexes MPEG single program transport streams (SPTS) directly from memory. The resulting multiple program transport streams (MPTS) are then modulated and transmitted with integrated up-conversion from 50 to 860MHz. The QN24e can operate in 16, 32, 64, 128, and 256QAM with variable symbol rates up to 7Msymbols/second, with Forward Error Correction(FEC), and complies with ITU-T J.83 standards for Annex A, Annex B, and Annex C – giving the adapter world-wide compatibility right out of the box.

“Continuously pushing the envelope of higher density solutions while lowering the per-stream cost of our QAM solutions is a hallmark trait of our engineering team,” said Joe Nordman, Vice President of Engineering – now in his 30th year with VideoPropulsion. "The launch of the QN24e is quite a remarkable achievement, and we’re already hard at work to achieve an even higher density QAM solution on a single PCIe form factor this year.”

The QN24e is available directly from VideoPropulsion.
