SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. -- TANDBERG Television, part of the Ericsson Group, today announced that it is providing a next-generation digital video system for Turkish DTH operator, Digiturk. To continue to grow its offering with more channels and the introduction of advanced services such as HDTV and VOD, Digiturk is aiming to achieve greater bandwidth and operational efficiency through a system upgrade. Following a competitive review of video head-end providers, DigiTurk selected TANDBERG Television’s advanced solutions because they meet the operator’s needs today, and provide a firm foundation for the future.

TANDBERG Television’s market leading statistically multiplexed encoders are being deployed by its Turkish business partner and local integrator Broadcast Muhendislik (www.broadcast.com.tr). High definition program delivery will be enabled by the award-winning TANDBERG EN8090 MPEG-4 AVC encoder, while the E5770 and E5775 MPEG-2 encoders will support standard definition MPEG-2 distribution. The system takes advantage of TANDBERG Television’s cost-effective IP multiplexing with the new MX8400, part of the ISIS 8000™ IP solution. TANDBERG Television will also provide its Xport™ on-demand content production system, which will support DigiTurk’s introduction of push video-on-demand services.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to pull on the technology leadership and digital video expertise of TANDBERG Television as we plan and implement the next stage of our network growth. We have been impressed with the performance of TANDBERG Television’s products and believe they will enable us to build a market leading infrastructure from which we can offer compelling digital video services to our customers,” says Mr.Emre Uysal, head of operations and product development of DigiTurk. “We are also impressed with the local relationship we have been able to establish with Broadcast Muhendislik (www.broadcast.com.tr) who clearly understand our needs.”
