The MediaCento RF 720p from Black Box gives you a simple, affordable way to do just that.

With it, you can convert HD video from a Component or VGA video source into an HDTV cable channel, extending that channel over standard coax RF wiring already in your building. Use it, for instance, to set up an information channel as part of an in-house TV distribution system.

The MediaCento RF 720p is particularly ideal for businesses, institutions, or public venues that currently have some local HD content that they'd like to distribute to on-premises HDTVs. It's especially ideal for hotels, restaurants, stadiums, and mass-transit facilities.

It keeps your AV distribution separate from your network infrastructure, economically repurposing wiring already installed for communications. No pulling new fiber optic cable or converting signals for extension over twisted-pair wiring.

With two separate Component and VGA video input paths, the MediaCento RF 720p captures both digital and analog video. It supports 480 and 720 resolutions on the Component input and 1680 x 1050 (60 Hz) resolutions on the VGA input.

Product Highlights
  • Easy to integrate into new or existing coax RF distribution systems
  • Uses HD MPEG2 encoding technology, modulates signals for QAM 256 channel distribution of video (720p maximum)
  • Employs the same HDTV broadcasting technology widely used by television and cable companies
  • Supports VGA resolutions up to 1680 x 1050 (60 Hz) and Component resolutions up to 720p
  • To view video remotely, just tune your HDTV to Channel 2.1 and enjoy high-quality video
  • No set-top boxes required. Simply use the QAM tuner of your HDTV to receive the channel
  • No limit to the number of HDTVs that can receive broadcasts from a single unit
  • The new channel(s) can be combined with off-site digital TV feeds, too
  • Ideal for hotels, hospitals, and schools who want to add their own channel to an in-house cable system
  • Built-in spectrum analyzer shows you exactly what channels are available on your system
  • Boasts sustained data encoding rates of up to 30 Mbps with extremely low latency-great for interactive applications
  • Assignable coax and optical digital audio ports. Video inputs can assigned to either video input
  • Select video source input with a press of a front-panel button
  • Or use a serial USB console for control from a workstation
  • Built-in IR repeater. System repeats IR remote control signal back for controlling a video source remotely
