TVX-560/E video modulator-exciter is a professional vestigial sideband dual conversion design with synthesized RF output and a High level adjustable power output from 5 mW- 2000 mW RF Power for driving high power stages 5 W and 35 W. It is fully synthesized and we have several versions available. The TVX-560/E is designed to accept video and audio baseband signals from a satellite receiver, TV camera, or any compatible input.

  • Synthesized operation provides complete frequency agility, allowing front panel selection of any standard CATV channel or UHF TV channel from 54 MHz to 550 MHz.
  • FCC required channel frequency offsets for aeronautical channels are set by front panel switches. Offset of 0, +12.5 kHz or +25 kHz are programmable.
  • Accepts standard (sync. Negative) polarity video at 0.7 to 1.5 Vp-p level.
  • High quality IF SAW filter eliminates adjacent channel interference.
  • IF loop-through capability provides an IF loop prior to channel conversion which provides the capability to replace the standard internally generated IF output with an alternate source composite IF or allows insertion of IF scrambling equipment.
