Blonder Tongue Laboratories (NYSE:BDR) announced the MPHDE-50, a media modulator for delivery and management of custom HD video content for a range of applications, including cable TV, educational, hospitality, and government. It combines a custom Android-based network media player and single-channel HD MPEG-2 encoder in 1RU.

Program inputs include component, HD-SDI, HDMI (unencrypted), VGA, and composite to deliver a single QAM, ASI, or IP 1080i output. The MPHDE-50 includes an HDMI connection between the media player and encoder. Both units are powered by a 12 VDC power supply integrated in the chassis; 120 VAC line powering is standard, with -48 VDC power optional.

It has two USB ports on the front panel and a 10/100baseT Ethernet port on the rear panel for remote management. An API is included for native applications, and the media player features a 4GB Flash internal memory and SD card port for additional storage.

The encoder - Blonder Tongue's HDE-CSV-QAM - is designed for GUI-based monitoring and control via standard Web browsers. Real-time Dolby Digital audio encoding is supported, as are closed captioning and user-defined PSIP configuration.
