Harmonic Inc. will supply WINfirst with "open" system solutions for digital headends in Sacramento and Dallas, Harmonic reports. WINfirst is building a new fiber-to-the-home network in both cities.
The deployment will use Harmonic's digital TV headend systems, including its DiviCom line of encoders, MN20 multiplexers, SimulCrypt conditional access interfaces, the Narrowcast Services Gateway for VOD, and the InterSet IP set-top gateway. Together, the system provides more than 200 digital channels of video and audio, enhanced pay-per-view, and VOD.
Harmonic also will provide professional services, including system design and integration with other third-party technologies supporting WINfirst's ITV platform, Harmonic says.
