TMDS 516 C SkyQ multi switch

Article number: 307380

Product description:

Sky Q is Sky’s most advanced TV experience ever.

However, what does Sky Q mean for professional installers in MDU environments?

If you install in MDU’s,  the existing system will need to be re-designed to incorporate the new Digital SCR multiswitch (dSCR) to enable Sky Q functionality.

TRIAX range of Sky approved dSCR (digital Satellite Cable Router) multiswitches for Sky Q include TMDS 54C 4-way, TMDS 58C 8-way and TMDS 516C 16-way switches powered by an external power supply (sold separately).

The switch enables the Sky Q receiver to select certain frequencies and allow FM, DAB and UHF to pass to the apartment.

The dSCR technology provides 16 user band channels to be selected per output, allowing the Sky Q receiver to record 4 channels and the viewer to watch another.

TMDS switches can also be used in Sky Q or Legacy modes.  Once the TMDS detects the Sky Q receiver it automatically switches to the SCR functionality.
