LEAGUE CITY, Texas -- Officials with Eagle Broadband, Inc. (AMEX:EAG - News), a national provider of broadband, Internet protocol (IP) and communications technology and services, today announced the company began construction of its super head-end and satellite farm at NewCom International in Miami, Florida. The Florida-based head-end operation will collect signals from over 30 satellites to deliver a broad range of content from more than 250 cable channels.
The new super head-end being constructed at NewCom International's Miami teleport will allow Eagle to collect and digitize IPTV content gathered from the more than 30 satellites across North America. It will also gather specialty Latin content from additional satellites positioned further east over the Atlantic Ocean. Installation of several multi-beam feed satellite dishes, which will ultimately be replaced by a single Simulsat wide-range satellite dish, will enable Eagle Broadband to collect signals from multiple geostationary satellites. The new head-end facility will enable Eagle to deliver a broad range of content from more than 250 cable channels.
Eagle Broadband will complete the construction of its head-end by October 1 and in conjunction will roll out its IPTVComplete(TM) service. The service includes direct access to more than 250 channels of high-demand programming from popular entertainment providers, using a mix of standard-definition and high-definition set-top boxes.
"Our IPTV solution is taking shape and we will soon deliver the most complete and high-quality cable offering to our clients around the country," said Dave Micek, president and chief executive officer of Eagle Broadband. "Seeing our vision realized is a true commentary on the commitment of our team to make IPTVComplete the most robust, high-quality cable entertainment package available."
