Blonder Tongue Announces U.S. Patent Grant for its Networking Modules for Display Systems
OLD BRIDGE, NJ / October 13, 2020 / Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE American:BDR) is pleased to report that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a patent, US10,805,660, for certain technologies within Blonder Tongue’s DOCSIS Data (DMM) series of products.
The DMM series of products are presently being deployed by telecommunications, cable television, and IP market distribution companies to receive, process, and distribute data, video, and audio content to enterprise locations such as hospitality, sports venues, healthcare, educational and financial institutions. The ’660 patented technology is targeted to solve the service operator challenges relating to the ability to concurrently deliver (1) traditional live TV entertainment service along with (2) on-demand-based Over-The-Top (OTT) TV entertainment service, (3) wireline-based data and telephony services, and (4) wireless-based data and telephony services. In addition to solving service concurrency challenges, because the patented technology is modular, the BT Labs solution presents a cleaner, more secure solution, and one that conforms to major hospitality brand standards for separable video, telephony and data service delivery.
Additionally, the BT Labs solution easily accommodates the migration of wireline to wireless, and accommodates subsequent wireless service upgrades by a simple replacement of the networking module.
