(NYSE American: BDR) announces the availability of their new ATSC3pro™ Suite of Broadcast compliance and development tools at the National Association of Broadcasters yearly convention (The NAB Show). Based on the most advanced ATSC 3.0 transmission and analysis engine available on the market today: the BitRouter “ATSC3pak” middleware, this new Blonder Tongue product provides Broadcaster managers and technical teams a turn-key, self-contained tool to help them begin preparing for ATSC 3.0 transitions.
Blonder Tongue’s new ATSC3Pro™ product allows Broadcasters to create and test-transmit ATSC 3.0 compliant digital broadcasts as well as test the compliance of ATSC 3.0 signals. It will also allow Broadcasters to build digital broadcast signals that include advanced ATSC 3.0 features such as hybrid signal sources, large SAP sources, ATSC Link Layer Protocol, ROUTE & DASH broadcasts, and 4Kp60 and High Dynamic Range (HDR) Video support.
“Blonder Tongue Laboratories has partnered with BitRouter to bring an easy to order, easy to use and fully supported suite of ATSC 3.0 signal creation, test and compliance measurement tools to market,” said Ted Grauch, COO, Blonder Tongue. “As Broadcasters across the country start the process of preparing for future ATSC 3.0 transitions, either for the end of this year or 2020, the ATSC3pro™ is a great way to begin to get your team ready, understand the expanded features of 3.0 and better understand how those new capabilities might impact your business.”
The ATSC3pro™ is delivered in a self-contained portable rack unit enclosure ready to drop into a broadcast center, lab, or mobile test environment. Additionally, Blonder Tongue provides instruction and after sales support tailored to our customers’ needs.
