Wisconsin municipality adds PEG channel to AT&T U-Verse with ViewCast encoder

The city of West Allis, WI, is relying on a ViewCast Niagara streaming media encoder to help it expand the audience for public, educational and government access (PEG) television programming.

The Niagara encoder has enabled the city to port its government access programs to AT&T's U-verse residential IPTV service, recently launched in the greater Milwaukee area.

A city of 60,000 in Milwaukee County, and the site of the Wisconsin State Fair, West Allis offers a wide range of government access programming to its citizens. The programs are locally produced as well as supplied by state and federal agencies.

The ViewCast Niagara system encodes the video for transport over a T1 network to the U-verse system, which began serving the West Allis viewing area in February. All Niagara encoders have AT&T's U-verse PEG streaming specifications programmed as a menu item.
