What makes a Pace Headend?

Build: Our engineers will custom design each system. Each part is carefully inspected, assembled, and inspected again to ensure top performance.

Burn: Systems are operated under load for 72 hours to ensure proper operation of all electronic
components. This guarantees audio and video clarity and stability in real world environments.

Balance: All modulated channels are set to an equal output value. Audio levels are set at 15 dB below video levels. All channels are calibrated to display consistent brightness and volume.

When the headend meets our exacting standards, the technician completes a Certificate of Calibration and makes initial entry onto included maintenance log. Our headends are shipped in custom made crates along with documentation.
