Twin Tuner TV Extension card for DVB-C / C2 - DVB-T / T2 - ISDB-T / SBDTV-D - Description:

The DuoFlex C2 / T2 / ISDB-T is equipped to receive stations which via Terrestrial (DVB-T and DVB-T2 transponder) and cable (DVB-C and DVB-C2 transponder) are common. Also the reception of ISDB-T is given by ARIB STD-B31 standard. The DuoFlex used for displaying, recording and analysis of MPEG2 (SD / HD H.262) MPEG4 (SD / HD H.264) and HEVC (HD / UHD H.265) signals.

The DuoFlex C2 / T2 / ISDB-T is equipped with 2 full tuners (twin tuner technology). So you have the possibility to receive two different transponders at the same time. Use this feature to receive two different cable or terrestrial transponders (frequencies) by DVB-C/T or ISDB-T simultaneously, for example to record a channel and watch another one. Each tuner works independently, so are all data from the transponders available.

Over the OnBoard Located Expansion Port, the card can at any time connected to devices of the Cine or Octopus series. So you can for example, the DuoFlex Twin Tuner expansion modules use to expand an existing card to raise up to 8 tuners, by using only one PCI Express slot.

Like all Digital Devices products also DuoFlex C2 / T2 / ISDB-T has a single cable system. The tuners are supplied internally via the connection over single cable. Over the separate output more TV modules of any series can be connected. There are no special drivers for this under Linux or Windows required.

By using ceramic capacitors and high-quality components the DuoFlex ensures a long life even in 24/7 server operation.

Through the small dimensions of the DuoFlex C2/T2/ISDB-T, it can be mounted in low and full profile PC cases (PCs with low and full-height) or as an extension to a full profile bracket in combination with the Cine or Octopus series (model dependent)

Power consumption is without LNB power only about 2 watts during normal operation - GreenIT Standard

Drivers are available for Windows operating systems, Windows Server and Linux for download.

This product was developed and produced in Germany and subject strict controls in the area of quality and environment protection and is free from environmentally hazardous substances, like electrolyte or tantalum capacitor.

The Max A8i is equipped at the factory with 8 full tuners (Octo Tuner Technology). So you have the option of eight different transponders to receive at the same time. For example you can use this feature to receive up to eight different digital cable or digital terrestrial transponders (frequencies) at same time for recording or streaming multiple channels and watch one or Handle multiple other. Since each tuner works independently are all data from the transponders available.

The Max A8i supports Onecable solution, so that only one supply line to the card is required to supply all the 8 internal tuner.

The Digital Devices MAX A8i can be expanded with an Octopus single CI or Octopus Twin-CI Card over an additional PCIe. Of course also a Flex / DuoFlex-CI device which is connected to a Cine or Octopus Bridge can be used.
