Local Video Insertion


Radiant QRF5000 Series local video insertion  products leverages advanced engineering and intelligent, user-friendly design to rapidly and cost-effectively  deploy all-digital lineups to low-cost digital set-tops. Affordable for HFC, Fiber Deep N+0, RFoG, Hybrid PON and PON deployments of all sizes, the QRF5000 series of video insertion products are ideal for MDUs,  hotels,  hospitals, gated communities, casinos, and  retirement centers.

QRF-5000 Video Encoder – a plug-and-play device that encodes local baseband video and audio channels to MPEG2 video and multiplexes them with a built-in QAM modulator and a broadcast agile RF up converter for distribution into existing cable network.

With digital services increasingly being used to deliver video to the home, operators are focused on enhancing the subscriber’s viewing experience by increasing the variety of services they offer and improving quality, while still maintaining a cost-efficient and easy-to-manage infrastructure.
