At the ANGA Cable Show, ATX is displaying its SignalOn Series of products that it acquired from ADC Telecommunications in October of 2009.
As the new supplier of the SignalOn product line, ATX offers a full suite of products to meet headend signal management needs (RF and satellite band splitting/combining, and optical transport). ATX now manufactures four platforms to support these needs: MAXNET, SignalOn, MAXNET II, and SCN products.
MAXNET features up to 18 single width modules in 5RU, front access to plug-in pads/EQs, and either F or BNC connectors. SignalOn features up to 20 single width modules in 5RU, a patented make-before-break attenuator pad design for hitless signal balancing, and either F or BNC connectors.

MAXNET II provides greater than 200 percent rack space savings over legacy RF signal management solutions, optical transmitters and receivers with integrated RF management functionality, and is built on a mini coaxial cable and MCX connector platform. The SCN line offers integrated "black box" solutions for forward narrowcast combining, return combining, and custom forward and return splitting/combining.

ATX is also highlighting its DigiVu and DVIS platforms at ANGA. These multiprogram MPEG-2 encoder, QAM demodulator, multiplexer and QAM, IP or ASI transmission platforms offer operators a means with which to encode, multiplex and transport MPEG-2 content in the headend or in apartment/MDU areas where content encoding and backhaul is required.

The DigiVu product offering is focused at headend applications and can support the MPEG-2 encoding of up to 10 programs, which can subsequently be multiplexed into an MPTS. Further, content from a QAM signal can be demodulated and also multiplexed with the encoded programs. Once the multiplex is created, the content can be transmitted via QAM or IP (RJ45/SFP). The DigiVu also supports an ASI loop through capability for applications where encoded content needs to be encrypted before being transmitted.

The DVIS product offering is designed for apartment/MDU digital insertion applications or in applications where content backhaul from a remote location is required.
