Pro Micro Desktop PC Receiver Unit (508)

The Micro PC Desktop Receiver allows TV viewing at a PC. The 508/P unit outputs baseband video and audio to a suitable video inlay card housed inside the PC. Local channel and volume selection is made through the MediaStar Desktop Software GUI, the PC then communicates this instruction through a RS232 connection to the Desktop Receiver. The 508/P connects via the Cat-5/UTP cabling infrastructure, at distances of up to 800 meters, (2,600 ft), to a front panel RJ45 socket on a Quad Outlet Blade, (Part 560/SPTL), this is housed inside the MediaStar Pro Hub, (Part 500/SL).
