ATSC-M/H Multiplex Signal Generator

ATX2000

The ATX2000 ATSC-M/H Multiplex Signal Generator is specifically designed and developed for the ATSC-M/H standard which is a new mobile broadcasting standard in the United States. The ATX2000 provides a variable broadcasting simulation test environment and can be tailored to specific situations using a comprehensive set of parameters and multiplexing function controls. It is the most advanced ATSC-M/H solution available today.

This all-in-one ATSC-M/H Multiplex Signal Generator offers a patented, easy-to-use interface, and high-quality RF and ASI outputs in a stable, portable platform. The ATX2000 will enable engineers to reduce time and development cost as well as enable them to bring products to market quicker to meet the needs of the emerging mobile broadcasting market.
