Cablevision taps Harmonic gateway for NY VOD
Cablevision Systems Corp. will use Harmonic's Narrowcast Services Gateway 8100 in its New York metro VOD rollout later this year.
The NSG 8100 is a server gateway in VOD transport, and supports eight QAM channels in a single rack unit, Harmonic says.
The gateway comes with such standard components as processing of streams from multiple high-capacity servers, multiplexing, program filtering, routing and multicasting, DVB scrambling, modulation, and upconversion of eight QAM channels, Harmonic says. It supports ASI and IP-over-Gigabit Ethernet input interfaces.
