TANDBERG to show new ITTV platform at NAB2003
At NAB2003, TANDBERG will show off its new ITTV platform for interactive television delivery via commercial xDSL and FTTH (fiber to the home). The company will demonstrate a head-end solution designed for telcos and other non-traditional broadcasters.
Demonstrations include streaming video and video-on-demand over MPEG-2, as well as the world’s first dedicated real-time hardware-based encoding platform for Windows Media 9, which promises significant picture quality and bit-rate improvements over MPEG-2.
A typical DSL or FTTH deployment features MPEG-2 encoding, IP streaming, transport stream descrambling, and integrated receiver/decoders. Third-party set-top boxes, video-on-demand servers, and middleware for electronic program guides, channel navigation and other additional services are supported.
