Blonder Tongue to Launch New Scalable Transcoder-Encoder Platform

Blonder Tongue has announced that it will launch a new Scalable Transcoder-Encoder Platform, or STEP. The STEP offers broadcasters a flexible, scalable, and cost-effective approach to video-over-IP distribution. Blonder Tongue's STEP is capable of performing high-quality HD/SD MPEG-2 or H.264 encoding; HD/SD MPEG-2 to H.264 and H.264 to MPEG-2 transcoding; HD to SD downscaling; and creating adaptive bit rate live profiles supporting popular HTTP streaming protocols such as HLS, HDS, and IIS, making it the ideal solution for operators to deliver multiscreen video and migrate to a next-generation video network architecture. Available as a 1RU, 2RU, or 3RU integrated system, STEP helps broadcasters meet the latest video requirements and transition to a modern video network architecture by carrying out a variety of scalable video processing tasks. The flexible platform supports multiple video quality encoding bit rates, multiple audio formats, and text scrolling. In addition, STEP is compatible with any industry media server or digital rights management software, and can be easily integrated into CDN providers, offering users a tailored solution based on customer needs. At the heart of STEP are three separate components: a splitter block capable of splitting incoming ASI- or IP-based MPEG-2-TS streams and rerouting them, or the individual programs, into a multiprogram transport stream (MPTS); a media processing engine that provides comprehensive video and audio processing functions required for applications such as decoding, encoding, transcoding, and format conversion as well as AES scrambling and logo insertion; and a mux functionality that can pass through and/or merge single program transport streams (SPTS) into an MPTS. STEP's low-latency MPEG-2/H.264 encoder utilizes multicore video encoding technology to perform real-time transmission of content at low bit rates over broadband IP networks. The encoder also supports on-screen text scrolling for a variety of applications including advertising, company logos, symbols, and stock tickers. In addition, the STEP solution supports various input options including analog baseband, VSB, and clear QAM programs, as well as a PIP output and Pro-MPEG CoP3 forward error correction.
