Outdoor Channel Preps for HD Channel
With the help of satellite technology provided by Scientific-Atlanta the Outdoor Channel (TOC) 2 started testing its broadcast HD signal on Dec. 29. PanAmSat is providing its Galaxy 10R satellite to broadcast the HD signal.

Scientific-Atlanta encodes the 1080i HD video with its transmission over 270 Mb fiber optic cable to the TOC uplink. The transmission network provider's PowerVu digital content distribution system will be used to deliver feeds for TOC programming in SD to both the east and west coasts.

When it launches it HD channel in June TOC will feature high-def broadcasts of "Discovering America's National Parks," "Cowboys" and "World Class Sportfishing."
