Time Warner Cable is supporting a rollout of digital simulcast with RGB Networks’ Simulcast Edge Processor (SEP), a high-density device that handles decoding, modulation and upconversion.

Time Warner Cable has deployed the SEP in “several” systems in the Carolinas, Ohio and New York. The MSO also plans to deploy it in some Texas cable properties.

Digital simulcast, a long-term answer to bandwidth reclamation, replicates analog channels in the digital tier.

“With our rollout of digital simulcast, we are laying the necessary groundwork to deliver the all-digital package to our subscribers,” said Time Warner Cable SVP, New Product Development Kevin Leddy, noting that RGB’s SEP has been “instrumental” in the MSO’s simulcast strategy.

RGB has also announced simulcast deployments with Adelphia Communications.
