WASHINGTON -- Here at its demo pedestal in the CableNET area of The Cable Show 2009, RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, is demonstrating how cable television operators can use just three RGB products to build a complete digital video headend at a fraction of the cost, space and power required by other solutions.

The demonstration will highlight RGB’s Broadcast Network Processor (BNP), Dynamic Bandwidth Manager (DBM) and Universal Scalable Modulator (Modulator) working together seamlessly to deliver a complete line-up of bandwidth-optimized high definition (HD), standard definition (SD) and video on demand (VOD) programming with digital ad insertion and overlays. Specifically, each product performs the following:

• The BNP aggregates multiple HD and SD programs, transrates each for maximum bandwidth efficiency and picture quality, and inserts local ads and digital overlays into these programs.

• The DBM transrates VOD programs in real time to deliver 50 percent more VOD content per 6 MHz channel without impacting picture quality.

• The USM takes in the HD, SD and VOD programs output from the BNP and DBM and modulates them all for delivery over the cable network.

“Cable operators are currently faced with the dilemma of having to ‘do more with less’ in order to combat competition, deliver more revenue-generating services, and do both with smaller budgets,” said Ramin Farassat, Vice President of Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “Fortunately our products do indeed allow cable operators to do more with less. They combine industry-leading stream processing density, a small form factor and advanced video capabilities to dramatically reduce the cost to deliver HD, VOD and local ad insertion – it’s truly having your cake and eating it too.”
