- A hybrid headend with standard-definition H.264 video encoded by the Electra 5400 and the new Ion AVC systems for long-tail content delivery.
- Video-on-demand (VOD) featuring the MediaPrism suite of content preparation tools, time-shifted "catch up TV" and targeted ad insertion applications.
- H.264 multichannel mosaic compilations delivered using the ProStream 8000 solution.
