For over 65 years, Blonder Tongue has customized cost-effective solutions for the broadcast, hospitality, education, healthcare, government, sports, entertainment, and enterprise markets. From supporting major broadcast networks to campuses, hotels, stadiums, and airports Blonder Tongue has its customers’ needs covered.
QAM Transmodulator Module
The QTM-HD-4 (QAM Transmodulator Module) contains four (4) independent transmodulators in a single module. Each of these transmodulators can accept one (1) QPSK or 8PSK input, and output four (4) QAM in the 54-864 MHz range.
An integrated satellite selector switch allows operators to select any QPSK/8PSK input from up to four (4) different satellites without the need for a separate external multi-switch.
The four (4) RF QAM output channels can be grouped in any 42 MHz-wide span, for example (i) grouped consecutively in a 24 MHz-wide span, or (ii) grouped as two pairs of adjoining RF channels, each 12 MHz-wide, or (iii) provide any other possible combination of 4x 6 MHz-wide channels placed in a 42 MHz-wide span.
The QTM-HD-4-NPU functions the same as the QTM-HD-4, but with a “Null Packet” feature that allows adding/removing null packets to/from the input stream.
The QTM-HD-4-PF functions the same as the QTM-HD-4-NPU, but with a “Program Filtering” feature that allows removal of program streams to fit in a 38.81 Mbps 256 QAM channel.
All QTM-HD-4 modules can be monitored and controlled via GUI-based web pages.
DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Module
The DMM-5500-PoE is a DOCSIS 3.0/2.0 compliant cable modem expansion module designed for compatibility and support with the LG STB 5500 serving Commercial TV and Lodging deployments. The DMM-5500-PoE features a built-in Ethernet switch that enables the unit to communicate with the LG STB 5500, and offers two additional RJ45 switched ports, one of which supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) providing Wireless Access Point (WAP) compatibility.
1310nm Fiber Optic Transmitter
The FIBT-1310 (Fiber Optic Transmitter) is an ideal solution to seamlessly transport extremely high speed digital data over single mode optical fiber. The product is specifically designed to transport data streams which maintain conformance with the DOCSIS 3.1 standards and/or were generated utilizing high order quantization techniques, such as QAM 1024, 8PSK, AND COFDM.
The transmitter is available in power output levels ranging from +6 dBm (4 mW) to +15 dBm (31 mW) to satisfy various system topologies and supports an increased band-edge to 1218 MHz for DOCSIS 3.1 applications.
The FIBT-1310 is built with a directly modulated DFB laser, providing low noise and high linearity performance. The RF AGC and pre-distortion circuit insures the optimum laser drive level for the best overall CNR, CSO, and CTB operation.
Laser output power, unit temperature, and RF input level are accurately monitored by a built-in microprocessor shown on the front panel LCD display, in addition to the unit function messages. Remote status monitoring is provided through SNMP network management.
Professional Satellite, TV, CATV and Optical Analyzer
The BTPRO-8000S is a professional HD Tablet/Touch Analyzer with a frequency range of 4 to 2610 MHz. The analyzer features a 7-inch 16:9 color display touchscreen, is compact in size, and lightweight.
The BTPRO-8000S is ideal for analyzing and logging in the lab or out in the field - HD/SD QPSK/8PSK Satellite, COFDM, QAM, NTSC, DVBS/S2 Broadcast, as well as Fiber Optic, and Wi-Fi signals.
24 Channel MPEG-4 to MPEG-2 High-Definition IP Transcoder
The Clearview 4:2 is a professional grade, low cost per stream transcoder that can transcode up to twenty-four (24) HD or SD programs from H.264 (MPEG-4) to MPEG-2 output in a 1RU form factor. The unit accepts unicast H.264 IP video transport streams and re-encodes the video content to HD or SD MPEG-2 transport streams for IP Unicast delivery.
The transcoder can be configured to receive up to twenty-four (24) H.264 AES-128 encrypted IP channels from Technicolor’s COM3000/2000 satellite receivers. The Clearview 4:2 decrypts the AES-128 content, transcodes the decrypted content into MPEG-2 format while preserving DirecTV “forensic watermarking”, and returns the content to the Technicolor COM3000/2000 devices. The Clearview 4:2 will also accept “in the clear” H.264 content.
Our products are found in all kinds of commercial and business deployments, including lodging and hospitality, MDUs, broadcast studios, educational institutions, healthcare facilities (hospitals, express care and fitness centers), governmental facilities and offices, prisons, airports, sports stadiums and arenas, entertainment venues, casinos, retail stores, and small businesses. The list is long, and the opportunities are significant.
