The ASI port outputs the full MPEG stream, including all programs, audio options and data at native resolutions. A professional HDTV tuner, the ATSC-SDI 4 features onboard web pages for control, setup, and monitoring. The compact enclosure allows mounting of two tuners in a single rack space.

Based on the industry-standard 232-ATSC 4 HDTV tuner technology, the ATSC-SDI 4 can receive both analog and digital channels in ATSC, NTSC, and clear QAM formats. Using an optional RF switcher, the tuner can switch between antenna and cable feeds.
