Blonder Tongue Announces U.S. Patent Grant for its NXG Video Delivery Platform
OLD BRIDGE, NJ / September 23, 2020 / Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE American:BDR) is pleased to report that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued the patent, US10,785,829, for certain technologies within Blonder Tongue’s NeXgen Gateway (NXG) video delivery platform.
The NXG platform is presently being deployed by telecommunications, cable television, and IP television service providers to generate, receive, process, and distribute data, video, and audio content to residential and enterprise locations such as private residences, hospitality, sports venues, healthcare, educational and financial institutions. The ‘829 patented technology is anticipated to ease migration from traditional video delivery architectures, transmission and signal protection technologies, into modern IP-based digital content protection transmission and delivery designs. The NXG platform can also help service providers more securely monitor and maintain those systems prior to, during and following their IP television migration projects, and its fully modular design helps operators adapt their content delivery requirements over time without the need to fork-lift upgrade their video transmission infrastructure in the future.
Overall, the NXG is a powerful, two-way, digital video signal processing platform with a series of modular add-on functions that enables an “anything-in to anything-out” signal processing solution. Based on key customer guidance and the Company’s R&D efforts, the NXG platform is a 100% modular, passive-back-plane-based product that enables service providers to easily and seamlessly accomplish migrating from traditional CATV transmission, such as RF fiber or coaxial cable, to fully IP-based transmission and delivery, and also supports migrating from traditional video content protection or CAS into IP-based digital rights management (DRM) technologies.
