Latest HD and SD Encoders, STBs, Streamers, and miniCMTS on Display to Enhance CATV Operator Service Offerings
February 09, 2016 San Diego, California
Pico Digital, a worldwide leader in providing comprehensive multi-media delivery solutions to customers in the broadband, satellite, cable, and broadcast markets, will be exhibiting solutions including its CONDOR cable TV headend system and set-top box platform as well as a range of new products at two industry conferences in February. The company's latest products will be on view first at the National Cable Television Cooperative's (NCTC) Winter Education Conference (WEC), taking place February 15-16 in Phoenix, and then at the NCTA's Rural Telecom Industry Meeting and Expo (RTIME), February 22-23, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
At both conferences, Pico Digital will be highlighting a wide range of products for customizing the CONDOR system to meet any operator's needs - including set-top boxes with PVR, the miniCMTS mini cable modem termination system, and encoder solutions. Pico Digital will also present a range of new products designed to give CATV customers more options for streaming, encoding/decoding, and routing video signals.
Visitors to Pico Digital's WEC and RTIME booths will see why cable operators who have struggled to transition away from analog TV or dead-end digital technologies are adopting the CONDOR platform as a way to give their subscribers the digital media experience they expect as a much lower cost than they imagined. An affordable solution for cable systems of every size, the upgradeable CONDOR system allows operators to efficiently convert to all-digital today to meet their subscribers' entertainment and connectivity needs - such as HDTV channels, secure premium entertainment, and high-speed broadband Internet - while enabling the simple addition of new services over time with Pico Digital's future-proof middleware.
Also on display will be a range of new products designed to give CATV operators more options for streaming, encoding/decoding, and routing video signals, including:
a low-cost MPEG-2 or H.264 single-channel encoding device used to stream video and audio across any IP network
a highly integrated 1-RU video edge QAM that can multiplex and scramble IP video signals and convert them to 24 QAM channels for use in CATV systems
a mux scrambler edge QAM IP streamer that adds 24 IP output streams to the IPQC24 to support centralized and remote headend operations
PDATSC-IP ATSC-to-IP streamer:
an advanced ATSC receiver and re-multiplexer that's ideal for insertion of local off air ATSC programming into local digital cable or IP headend systems
a professional TS processor capable of receiving up to 512 IP (SPTS/MPTS) channels and multiplexing the input programs into two TS stream outputs
