Video Networks deploys MPEG-4 AVC IPTV service

VNL has deployed Harmonic’s DiviCom MV 100 real-time encoding platform and its own set-top box for the new HomeChoice IPTV service.

Harmonic has announced that Video Networks, a provider of the HomeChoice entertainment and communications service, has completed the migration of its broadcast lineup to MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) compressed signals over an IPTV infrastructure.

The broadband IPTV service is enabled by Harmonic’s DiviCom MV 100 real-time, multi-codec encoding platform. In early 2004, VNL deployed the MV 100 and its multi-codec set-top box for its new HomeChoice IPTV service.

The platform gives VNL the ability to create differentiated video services with MPEG-2 and build a foundation for future growth. Since April 2005, VNL has incrementally migrated groups of the operational MV 100 encoders to MPEG-4 in a process that was recently completed.

VNL is also using Harmonic’s NMX Digital Service Manager to monitor and control its complete digital television infrastructure as a series of services.
