RF VHF/UHF output that delivers an output level of >80 dBμV.
JJ
Main features
The MAC 401 model is an AV analogue TV signal to COFDM digital TV signal standalone
modulator unit. Suitable for individual residential installations, it is an ideal solution for
the distribution of analogue video signals with COFDM digital TV modulation in a single
standalone unit.
AV1 to AV4 are also serially digitalised, coded in MPEG2 and modulated in COFDM. The
COFDM base band signal is modulated on an RF carrier that can be adjusted at the output
to the VHF and UHF bands.

EN
The MAC 401 unit has a maximum capacity to include 4 AV analogue TV signals at the RF
VHF/UHF output, coded as COFDM Digital TV signals.
To increase this capacity, several MAC 401 units can be cascade connected. The maximum
capacity of a group of N units is 2xN TV signals included.
To cascade connect 2 or more units, connect the RF output 4 of the previous unit to the
TV input (loopthrough) 3 of the next unit (see Installation figure).
