The Blonder Tongue NXG-PI-IP (Pro:Idiom Encryption Module for IP) is part of the Blonder Tongue NeXgen Gateway (NXG) platform that adds Pro:Idiom encryption (digital content protection) to HDTV signals. The NXG-PI-IP module inputs MPEG-compliant transport streams through the NXG IP back plane. The Pro:Idiom encryption is added to a Single Program Transport Streams (SPTS) format. The Pro:Idiom encrypted video content is then routed via NXG’s IP back plane to the desired IP outputs for distribution. The Pro:Idiom encryption is compatible with existing Pro:Idiom decryption devices, such as TV and set top boxes most commonly used in Hospitality locations.
