Adelphia Picks EGT, C-COR for Digital Help

Although it will likely be carved up between Comcast and Time Warner Cable soon, Adelphia Communications keeps rolling along with its plans for the future as if it will stay intact and independent. In the latest move announced earlier today, Adelphia chose EGT Inc. to supply the MPEG-2 digital video encoders for its planned rollout of digital simulcast service. EGT said it will be the MSO's "primary encoder vendor" for the simulcast deployments. The EGT deal comes just a day after C-COR announced that Adelphia has expanded its deployment of the vendor's digital program insertion (DPI) equipment to another major market. Adelphia is now using C-COR's equipment in Cleveland. C-COR also announced a new DPI installation with Charter Communications in St. Louis, as well as new or planned deployments with Comcast Spotlight in six major markets -- Boston, Denver, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco and St. Paul, MN. With these latest pacts, C-COR boasts that its DPI gear is now deployed in more than 80% of all existing digital cable advertising markets.
