OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Blonder Tongue AQT

The Blonder Tongue AQT Transcoder is a modular unit that receives either an 8VSB (Off-air Digital) or QAM (CATV Digital) signal, and transcodes it to any CATV QAM channel. The transcoding enables televisions with QAM digital tuners to seamlessly view the 8VSB Off-air digital signals on cable television frequency assignments without having to change the television tuner input from CATV mode to Off-Air mode. The input digital signal is stripped of it’s original digital modulation (8VSB or QAM), leaving just the basic data stream. The Blonder Tongue AQT then creates a new, clean QAM carrier and reinserts the original data stream on to this new QAM carrier. If the original channel was encrypted, it will remain encrypted, if the original channel was in the clear, it will remain in the clear. The only modification to the original data stream that is performed is changing the data rate when converting an 8VSB signal to a QAM signal. This rate change is done via Null Packet processing and does not affect the encryption in any way.

The encoder digitizes, MPEG-2 encodes each input into a high-definition stream, multiplexes the resulting eight (8) streams, and then modulates them onto four (4) adjacent QAM channels in the 54-1002 MHz range (CATV 2-158). Any one (1) of the four (4) QAM outputs is also available in ASI format. The encoder (i) accepts eight (8) analog programs from DIRECTV Network’s H25-100 satellite receivers, (ii) automatically switches over to any of the primary eight (8) receivers in the event of failure to maintain the program stream, and (iii) provides remote monitoring and control of up to nine (9) DIRECTV Network’s H25-100 satellite receivers through UPnP protocol using a standard Web browser via a rear-panel 10/100Base-T Ethernet connection.
