T-Home IPTV service adds new compression systems, receivers and decoders

T-Com Germany has upgraded its compression systems for its new video service product T-Home, a European IPTV deployment based on the Microsoft TV IPTV edition software platform.

T-Home will use Harmonic's DiviCom MPEG-4 AVC SD and HD compression systems for the IPTV service. Harmonic's multiservice (multicodec, multiformat and multichannel) solutions are the foundation for more personalized and on-demand services such as T-Home. The service will be able to feature volumes of rich content and services such as HD and PiP. The DiviCom Electra 5000 series of SD encoders can simultaneously deliver high-quality video at full and low resolution for applications such as PiP, personalized multichannel mosaics and streaming video to the PC. Within the T-Home product of T-Com, the new high-performance Electra 7000 HD H.264 encoders will be deployed later this year.

The Harmonic solution also includes ProView integrated receivers and decoders for content acquisition and the ProStream 1000 stream-processing platform as part of the parental control function mandated by German public broadcasters, as well as comprehensive system monitoring and control with NMX Digital Service Manager. The new T-Home service is initially available in 10 metropolitan areas across the country. T-Com is further extending service capacity and subscriber reach with VDSL technology, dramatically increasing the bandwidth available for new and enhanced services including video-on-demand, time-shifted TV, PVR and higher speed Internet access.
