Texas-based cable operator Buford Media Group will beta test Coax 's new programmable headend. Buford has been a willing "guinea pig" before, being the first small cable operator to test Headend in the Sky (HITS), AT&T and Motorola's project.

The new headend technology, dubbed MISTIC, is designed to allow both large and small cable MSOs in rural areas to deploy two- way digital services. VOD, telephony, high-speed access and gaming-on-demand are a few of the services the Coax headend enables.

Buford has facilities in Texas, Mississippi and Arkansas. According to Coax, beta testing begins in early 2001.
