Multiplex 4 Picks RGB
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- RGB Networks, the leading provider of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery solutions, today announced that Multiplex 4 (MUX4), the fourth largest nationwide Czech TV transmission network operated by Digital Broadcasting Ltd., has selected and deployed RGB’s award-winning Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG™) and Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) to provide a complete video processing solution for the regionalised delivery of its expanding DVB-T (terrestrial) services. MUX4 is the only nationwide TV transmission network in the Czech Republic utilising the H.264/MPEG-4 compression format, enabling the delivery of high definition TV. MUX4 supports the multiplexing (muxing) of several channels in digital format to 13 independent regions, with seven channels each, enabling the delivery of separate broadcast services to particular regions, such as Prague and Central Bohemia. The network is undergoing a major expansion project, and currently reaches 86 percent of the country’s population. Selected for the solution’s versatility, cost efficiency and multifunctionality, RGB’s VMG and BNP together support MUX4’s overall DVB-T headend with the primary application of regionalising programming for various geographic areas – performing functions including muxing, program substitution, graphical overlay insertion, DVB-CA encryption and transcoding – in order to ensure compliance with required industry standards and licensing terms.
