Simplicity is the key to the Pico-Macom 12-channel headend package.  The system is designed around this 12-slot chassis (MPC-12) which comes complete with a fan-cooled power supply.  Building a mini-system starts with the MPC-12, followed by the appropriate number and type of modulators, demodulators, and/or encoders.  Select a modulator for each channel of satellite, VCR, DVD, CCTV or other in-house sources you want to include in your cable lineup.  Analog Modulators require a single rack slot of space; demodulators require two slots.  Digital modulators and digital streaming video encoders required 2 slots.  Use additional MPC-12 chassis units as required to expand channel capacity.  Outputs of the modulators are combined using one of the related CHC-16U-series active combiners, also shown below.  THAT'S IT!  It's that easy.
Components that make up a Pico-Macom Analog Mini Headend System include:
MPC-12  12-slot chassis with P.S.
