Tandberg To Demo Windows Media 9-Based Network

Tandberg Television will demonstrate a complete system designed to open low bit-rate video business opportunities for telcos at this year's IBC in Amsterdam, Sept. 11-15. Visitors to the company's stand will be able to see a live system combining products that provide the benefits of Windows Media 9 Series to DSL operators. The system centers around the Tandberg EN5920 real-time hardware-encoding platform for Windows Media 9 and features low bandwidth real-time encoding of turnaround and local channels; IP multicast of live TV; content capture and distribution; video on demand (VoD); EPG portal; set-top boxes; and DRM.

"By deploying the bandwidth and operational benefits of our end-to-end Windows Media Audio and Video 9-based system, operators can realistically look to offer broadcast quality multi-channel TV and on demand services on their deployed ADSL networks," said Eric Cooney, president and CEO of Tandberg Television.
