Milestone Shipment Comes Only 15 Months After First Shipment of Simulcast Edge Processor
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that they have shipped their 1000th VIA family video processor, a Simulcast Edge Processor (SEP), that was delivered to Time Warner Cable. The SEP was first shipped in August of 2005 and has since shipped to every major cable operator in the U.S., as well as operators in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. The 1000 video processing units shipped to-date also include RGB's Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) and recently introduced Modular Media Converter (MMC).
"When the cable market needed a solution for digital simulcast video delivery, RGB was able to quickly answer the call by developing an innovative solution for edge decoding and deliver it rapidly and effectively through our strong partnership with Motorola. Thanks to the strength of the SEP's core technology - the Video Intelligence Architecture (VIA) - we were able to quickly and effectively meet the needs of our customers and exceed their expectation with a high density, cost-effective solution," said Jef Graham, CEO of RGB Networks. "We believe the SEP has demonstrated the power of RGB's VIA technology and laid the groundwork for the success of our BNP and MMC products, as well as other advanced products still to come."
The SEP enables cable operators to convert and carry all signals in digital format to the edge of the network, eliminating the bandwidth drain of transporting a dual analog/digital programming line-up and the cost of maintaining separate transmission and video processing equipment. With the SEP, cable operators can deliver a full digital line-up to digital subscribers, simplify operations, save bandwidth and pave the way to a fully digital network, while still supporting existing analog customers.
About RGB's Simulcast Edge Processor
The RGB Simulcast Edge Processor is the cable industry's first complete solution for digital simulcast edge decoding applications, providing the capability to simultaneously receive multiple MPEG-2 digital video streams over Internet Protocol (IP), decode the video streams, modulate and up-convert them, and deliver the streams directly to subscribers as NTSC analog video at the edge of the network. The SEP is unique in that it combines all of the necessary processing required to accept digital video streams and deliver them directly as modulated analog NTSC video for distribution to customers' homes in a single one rack unit platform. With the SEP, cable operators can deliver a full digital line-up to digital subscribers, simplify operations, save bandwidth and pave the way to a fully digital network, while still supporting existing analog customers.
