"As a recognized market share and technology leader in VOD solutions, SeaChange is naturally a key partner for us as we expand into the VOD market. There is substantial synergy between our respective solutions and the opportunity to integrate our products is key," said Ramin Farassat, VP of product marketing for RGB Networks, in a statement. "With this successful integration of our Dynamic Bandwidth Manager with SeaChange's VOD system, cable operators can take full advantage of synergistic capabilities of both products to deliver up to 50 percent more VOD programming without the need for expensive network upgrades and additional QAM channels."
RGB Networks and C-Cor are teaming up for several demonstrations at next week’s IBC 2007 show in Amsterdam. RGB and C-Cor will jointly demonstrate integrated solutions for both digital advertising insertion and VOD bandwidth optimization.
In one of the demonstrations, RGB's Dynamic Bandwidth Manager will perform real-time statistical multiplexing on VOD streams delivered by C-Cor's n5 video server, enabling the delivery of 50 percent more programming in the same bandwidth without impacting picture quality. The resulting 50 percent capacity increase is gained by sending five additional standard definition VOD streams on top of the standard 10 streams in the same amount of spectrum.
The second demonstration will show RGB's Broadcast Network Processor working in conjunction with C-Cor's n5 Video Server to splice digital advertisements into multiple ad zones.
