OLD BRIDGE, NJ. -- Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE MKT:BDR) today announced that the Company’s HDE-8C-QAM w/Opt 2 encoder is now approved for use in high definition (HD) deployments over coax infrastructure by a major US satellite digital television provider. The reliability, superior video quality, and feature set provided by the HDE-8C-QAM w/Opt 2 encoder (#6370-2), will enable operators to cost-effectively deliver HD video content in certain institutional markets.

Using the HDE-8C-QAM w/Opt 2 encoder, operators can accept programs from up to eight component or composite inputs from satellite receivers. After accepting video content, the encoder digitizes, MPEG-2 encodes, multiplexes, and modulates the eight input programs plus a spare into four adjacent watermarked QAM channels. The high-performance encoder also features a Web-based user interface plus a front-panel test point, thereby decreasing the learning curve for system operators and further reducing operational expenses.

Additionally, the feature-rich encoder includes closed captioning, user-defined PSIP configurations, and is compatible with ITU Annex A and B digital QAM formats. An included emergency alert system interface allows the encoder to comply with EAS requirements.
