London Headend Delivers 140 channels of IPTV with Adtec Digital

October 4, 2004

Adtec Digital's DTA-3050 media gateways, edje-2100 DTV encoders and middleware, were deployed last month on a 140-channel television over IP (IPTV) project in central London.

The project aggregates content from pan-European satellite (DVB-S), UK terrestrial (DVB-T) and internal analog feeds. IT solutions provider SCC managed the project. Trimedia Broadcast provided systems integration.

Designed for European markets, the DTA-3050 delivers IPTV for approximately $1800 per channel. A version of the product is also available with integrated DVB-T and DVB-S tuners and a CACI interface (DTA-3150), enabling users to aggregate free-to-air and DVB scrambled services from six DVB multiplexes.

Selected services are output on a Gigabit Ethernet interface as MPEG-2 single program transport streams. For DVB headends, a re-multiplex option delivers ASI output.

Adtec’s edje-2100 is a real-time MPEG-2 distribution encoder with the ability to route MPEG transport streams over ASI or IP when deployed with the DTA-3050.
