AMSTERDAM -- GoBackTV, the innovative supplier of digital video headend and edge solutions, today announced the debut of the GigaQAM IP CMTS-bypass solution for affordable delivery of IPTV over cable.

Visitors to Stand # 15 at Cable Congress 2007 in the Hotel Okura, Amsterdam, February 6-8, can watch television over cable using a standard EuroDOCSIS™ 1.1 cable modem and an off-the-shelf IP set-top box. They can also watch traditional MPEG2 video on the same QAM channels, using a DVB-C cable set-top box.

The GigaQAM IP provides DOCSIS® control and timing information for up to eight GigaQAM™ 3000 edgeQAM devices (192 QAM channels), allowing the edgeQAMs to deliver any mix of DOCSIS and traditional MPEG2 video. DOCSIS synchronization information may be carried in every DOCSIS-enabled channel, allowing the use of existing low-cost, standards-based DOCSIS 1.1 and 2.0 cable modems, as well as DOCSIS 3.0 wideband cable modems in the future. The compact GigaQAM IP supplies up to six upstream channels with ingress noise cancellation for return path support.

“We are delighted to introduce GoBackTV’s CMTS-bypass solution to the cable community,” said Dave Baran, CEO of GoBackTV. “Drawing on the extensive video and DOCSIS expertise of the GoBackTV team, the GigaQAM IP leverages the best video-related features of NGNA and DOCSIS in an innovative and cost-effective package. IPTV can offer so many benefits, and with the GigaQAM IP, cable operators can now choose the best of both worlds.”
