The 1RU FA3M-50-860 Triple Channel Frequency-Agile Audio/Video to RF Modulator by Blonder Tongue features 3 analog audio and composite video modulator inputs. The 3 inputs can be modulated into any RF carrier channel in the 54 to 860MHz frequency range. The front panel control of each of the 3 modulators allows you to adjust the modulation level as well as to select the channel of your choice.

Rack mountable - 1 EIA (1.75") rack space
Supports all broadcast and CATV channels, including HRC and IRC assignments from 54 to 860MHz
Front panel accessible level controls for easy set-up and adjustments
Fully compatible with BTSC encoded stereo audio
