DENVER, Col. -- HITS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Comcast Cable, today announced a significant upgrade, known as “Q2,” to the HITS Quantum™ Platform. The next generation of the platform which supports existing MPEG-2 infrastructure, includes converting several HITS standard definition (SD) transponders to DVB-S2 technology, increasing the number of HD services offered in MPEG 2, and delivering the entire programming lineup via a single satellite. The HITS Q2 upgrade illustrates the company’s continued commitment to innovating for industry-prevalent MPEG-2 technology. Q2 improves the efficiency of MPEG-2 services offered by HITS, helping operators to utilize their existing technology as well as update their equipment at significantly less cost than other plant upgrade options. This helps operators maintain competitive service levels with minimal capital investment. HITS and the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) recently renewed their agreement to offer the next generation of the HITS platform to their members. The majority of participating NCTC members have already opted-in to the new deal for enhanced HITS satellite services. Several programming groups have also signed on to the upgraded platform. HITS

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
