CAIW Utilizes Adtec Products for DTV over ASI & IPIntegrates edje-2100 encoders into digital headend project (September 13, 2004)
Dutch cable operator, CAIW, is using Adtec Digital products to offer their digital cable TV package.
CAIW, first in the world to introduce cable-powered internet and the first pan-European cable operator to explore ad insertion, recently integrated Adtec's edje-2100 encoders into a digital headend project and for exploration of IPTV options.
?The Adtec units are used for local, regional and national stations' encoding, converting an analog feed into DVB-ASI and MPEG over IP streams from remote locations," Systems Integrator Add-2-Ad/Adtec Northern Europe President, Ferry Ouwendijk, said. "The ability to combine DVB-ASI and IP is of great interest to cable operators including CAIW."
Adtecs edje-3000 multiplexer can combine DVB-ASI inputs with Adtecs Soloist 2-ASI transport stream server, the edje-2100 with streaming MPEG over IP, satellite receivers or ASI encoders of any brand. Output is then generated as DVB-ASI and MPEG/DVB-ASI over IP.
?Adtec products allow you to cost-effectively build a digital headend out of ten channels including the multiplexer, for the price of what one broadcast encoder of traditional brands used to cost, Ferry Ouwendijk, said. ?This is simply unbelievable.
?We've experienced the reliability of Adtec equipment for ad insertion, play-out and encoding services for over seven years, CAIW Manager of Product Development, Jan Stolte, said. ?Adtec products are a great solution for our regional and local stations.
