Blonder Tongue Launches New Digital TranscoderQQQT-01 is No. 6289A of the Company's Triple QT Product Line (November 05, 2001)
This new model has all of the same features & characteristics of the standard QQQT with two distinct additions: (1) extended agile QAM output range from 54 to 750 MHz (CATV Channel 2--117 including FM band channels 95--99), and (2) an external IF loop. The extended output range allows for tuning the output of the unit into lower channels than the standard QQQT, giving the operator flexibility in bandwidth-constricted systems. The external IF loop allows interfacing with video all-call systems for purposes such as Emergency Alert Systems (EAS).
These QQQT products are DigiCipher II compatible. This is an essential element of a system configuration that allows a cable TV operator to offer a state-of-the-art digital television package that is both bandwidth-efficient and extremely economical, permitting even small systems to offer digital services. DigiCipher II compatibility also means support for HITS Quick Take & WSNet Quick Take Plus services, as well as Canada's Cancom Star Choice service. The QQQT solution enables operators to offer a digital tier of more than 200 channels when used in conjunction with Motorola's QAM DSR-470 & DSR-471 set-top boxes in the home.
Sales of the QQQT units are stronger than ever. In July the company announced the shipment of its 1500th Triple QT channel. Today the company announced shipment of 4,380 channels of this 4 channel per unit configuration since March, 2001, and demand is still on the rise.
