BigBand enhances broadcast video platform

BigBand Networks has enhanced its Broadband Multimedia-Service Router software. New features include unified broadcast service support to enhance the platform’s capabilities for international markets with a set of features previously deployed by North American customers that translates to higher density and improved media processing densities for core BMR functions.

The new BMR software release integrates the Broadcast Video Services and Digital Video Broadcasting software lines into a single offering designed to improve operational efficiency. Additionally, BigBand’s new BMR software resolves a closed-captioning challenge that impacts cable operators with older set-top box deployments as they prepare for the digital transition deadline.
