Atlantic Telephone Membership has launched digital TV services over its existing coax network using VideoTele.com's digital headend platform. The system uses the digital video broadcasting standard for cable (DVB-C), making Atlantic Telephone is one of the first cable networks in the United States to commercially deploy digital using the DVB-C standard.
The North Carolina company is using a combination of digital headend equipment from VideoTele.com and Teleste of Finland to transition its analog cable TV network to a system that supports DVB-C compliant digital TV and advanced entertainment services.
The DVB-C is an open, standards-based system that supports MPEG-2 and other digital formats and other broadband multimedia types.
VideTele.com was the system integrator for the project. The company deployed a solution using set-top boxes from UEC technologies and a conditional access solution from Nagravision.
