At NAB2003, TANDBERG will show off its new ITTV platform for interactive television delivery via commercial xDSL and FTTH (fiber to the home). The company will demonstrate a head-end solution designed for telcos and other non-traditional broadcasters.
Demonstrations include streaming video and video-on-demand over MPEG-2, as well as the world’s first dedicated real-time hardware-based encoding platform for Windows Media 9, which promises significant picture quality and bit-rate improvements over MPEG-2.
A typical DSL or FTTH deployment features MPEG-2 encoding, IP streaming, transport stream descrambling, and integrated receiver/decoders. Third-party set-top boxes, video-on-demand servers, and middleware for electronic program guides, channel navigation and other additional services are supported.
