TTcomm chooses Harmonic

TTcommCentral and eastern European teleport provider TTcomm has chosen Harmonic to supply video processing gear to support its delivery of satellite TV services. 

Harmonic is supplying its Electra universal encoder, integrated with Flex dual decoder module, to provide MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC encoding for up to four statistically multiplexed SD and HD services within a single chassis.

The Electra encoders are integrated with Harmonic’s ProStream stream processor for statistical multiplexing of MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 streams, enabling TTcomm to support up to 64 services per statistically multiplexed pool, 16 pools per platform, and three pools within a single transport stream.

The solution of Electra encoders and ProStream processors is controlled by Harmonic’s NMX digital service manager video network management solution.

“We needed a reliable, proven video infrastructure solution that could scale up easily, allowing our customers to quickly roll out additional channels and services without impacting the integrity of the video content,” said Tomasz Chalimoniuk, CEO at TTcomm.

“Through a robust, scalable, high-density design, Harmonic’s integrated solution enables us to cost-effectively deliver more channels and services with amazing video quality.”
