Bandwidth management expert BigBand Networks Inc. and quality of service applications provider CableMatrix have joined forces to produce a PacketCable Multimedia-based platform that can support delivery of high-quality Internet Protocol video programming over cable.

The product suite melds BigBand's Broadband Multimedia-Service Router and Cuda cable modem termination system with CableMatrix's On Demand Service Platform.

The idea is to offer operators a way to convert on-demand digital video from satellite, terrestrial or other local sources to an IP format, so that it can be delivered to myriad consumer devices including home computers and IP-enabled set-tops - all with assured quality of service.

"Broadcast-quality IP video illustrates the power of PacketCable Multimedia and our companies' platforms to empower consumers with greater choice and richer functionality over next-generation networks," said John Pickens, CableMatrix chief technologist, in a release.
