SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Terayon Communication Systems, Inc. (Pink Sheets: TERN.PK), an Emmy Award-winning provider of digital video networking applications that enable service providers to localize content on-demand, today announced that Buckeye CableSystem has deployed Terayon applications in conjunction with its rollout of digital video services.

Buckeye, which services 150,000 subscribers in northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan, is utilizing Terayon video applications for digital program insertion, zoned advertising insertion and other solutions that leverage rate shaping and statistical remultiplexing capabilities to deliver more personalized content. The applications run on the Terayon DM 6400 Network CherryPicker®. In addition, Buckeye has upgraded its network to a digital simulcast architecture using the Terayon CP 7600G edge decoder.

“Like all cable system operators, we are facing the challenge of delivering greater amounts and varieties of content to increasingly focused service groups,” said Jim Brown, Director of Engineering for Buckeye CableSystem. “Terayon has played an important role in our digital deployments by cost-effectively enabling us to optimize existing bandwidth and maintain the highest levels of video quality within a highly-flexible, highly reliable architecture.”

“By working together with innovative operators like Buckeye, we have been able to develop video applications that provide a clear path to greater ‘localization on demand’ of programming and advertising,” said Jerry Chase, CEO of Terayon. “Through its careful deployment of digital solutions, Buckeye is providing more and better services to its subscribers today, while simultaneously creating a migration path to more localized content delivery in the future.”
