Blonder Tongue AQP overview

  • 1Description

The AQP ATSC/QAM Processor from Blonder Tongue accepts digital off-air (8VSB) or digital cable (QAM) input and trans-modulates it to QAM output. It features agile QAM output at +55 dBmV with a frequency range of 54 to 864 MHz.

Accepts 8VSB (digital off-air) or QAM (digital cable) sources and outputs in the QAM 54 to 864 MHz range. It will also accept sub-band QAM channels T7 to T13
Can be utilized in a remote head-end to regenerate a clean QAM following signal degradation
Allows TVs to receive digital off-air programming on CATV channel assignments by trans-modulating the 8VSB input to QAM
Can be used in remote digital orientation applications where the QAM channel needs to be delivered to the head-end via sub-band frequencies
