The Blonder-Tongue HDE-CSV-QAM is a MPEG-2 HD Encoder that accepts one (1) high-definition (HD) program from any of the following inputs: Component, HDSDI, HDMI (unencrypted), VGA, and Composite, then outputs encoded MPEG-2 in the following formats simultaneously: QAM, ASI, and IP (10/100Base-T Ethernet), with its QAM RF output being frequency agile over the entire CATV frequency range of 54-1002 MHz (channels 2-158) and output level of +40 dBmV.

It includes support for Dolby® Digital audio encoding and Closed Captioning (EIA-608 and EIA-708), along with comprehensive remote monitoring and control using any standard Web browser via a front-panel 10/100Base-T Ethernet connection. Loop-through applications are available using a rear-panel VGA output port.
