Scopus Launches ‘Headend in a Box’ Solution for Digital Simulcast
At SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando this week, Scopus Video Networks introduced Piccolo, an integrated “headend in a box” system for digital simulcast. The all in one system integrates all key video processing elements and targets cable operators who want to launch digital simulcasting services.

Piccolo integrates, in a small rack enclosure, real-time MPEG encoding, grooming, rate-shaping, splicing, and edge decoding functions while working with a single network management system. The system employs Scopus’ UE-9240, which combines four MPEG-2 encoders in a 1 RU platform; the IVG-7000 digital video processor; and the UID-2912 high-density edge decoder, all of which are integrated with the NMS-4000 network management system.

“The Piccolo compact digital simulcast solution fully addresses the needs of cable operators that want an all-in-one solution,” said Mario Rainville, associate vice president of product marketing for Scopus’ U.S. operations. “Our compact headend is the all-inclusive answer to digital simulcast needs, including network management, integration, and single point of contact for technical support. As a full solution provider for digital simulcast, Scopus enables cable operators to transform their business plans into reality.”
