Atlantic Telephone deploys DVB system over cable network

Atlantic Telephone Membership has launched digital TV services over its existing coax network using VideoTele.com's digital headend platform. The system uses the digital video broadcasting standard for cable (DVB-C), making Atlantic Telephone is one of the first cable networks in the United States to commercially deploy digital using the DVB-C standard.

The North Carolina company is using a combination of digital headend equipment from VideoTele.com and Teleste of Finland to transition its analog cable TV network to a system that supports DVB-C compliant digital TV and advanced entertainment services.

The DVB-C is an open, standards-based system that supports MPEG-2 and other digital formats and other broadband multimedia types.

VideTele.com was the system integrator for the project. The company deployed a solution using set-top boxes from UEC technologies and a conditional access solution from Nagravision.
