Sorry for the spam; something seems to be going weird between my BlackBerry

Thanks.  I guess my other perhaps now-irrelevant question would be: "If one
such encoder exists today can it emit 853 x 480p60?".  If not, and if Table
3 and cable/sat preclude this as an emission format, then maybe this thread
becomes moot except for IP delivered apps.

At the time (3 years ago) there was not.  Today? Don't know.
