Modulator
Full Definition

A device which modulates a carrier. Modulators are found as components in broadcasting transmitters and in videoconference transponders. Modulators are also used by CATV companies to place a baseband video television signal onto a desired VHF or UHF channel. Home video tape recorders also have built-in modulators which enable the recorded video information to be played back using a television receiver tuned to VHF channel 3 or 4.
