Blonder Tongue's HDE-4S-PRO (MPEG-2 HD Encoder: 4xHD-SDI + 1xSpare to 4xQAM + 4xIP) is the first generation in Professional MPEG 2 Encoder Series, especially designed to deliver superior motion optimization for programming such as fast-paced live sporting events. The unit accepts up to four (4) high-definition (HD) programs from: 4xHD-SDI. MPEG-2 encoded outputs are available in the following formats simultaneously: 4xQAM, 4xIP (1000Base-T Ethernet), and 4xASI.
To improve transport efficiency, the encoder allows operator to (i) assign one (1) to four (4) programs to each QAM output channel, and (ii) to individually turn on/off each of the four (4) adjacent QAM output channels.
The encoder supports Dolby® Digital and Closed Captioning (EIA-608 and EIA-708). It is also equipped with an Emergency Alert System (EAS) interface. A front-panel RF test point allows for monitoring/testing of the QAM output without service interruption.
Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a front-panel 10/100BaseT Ethernet connection.
