Armstrong has expanded its video-on-demand service in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland, relying in part on the deployment of Harmonic's Narrowcast Services Gateway (NSG) 9000 universal edge QAM.

"VOD is an important and growing service, and it is critical that we are able to support more and more users in a scalable, secure and highly reliable manner," said Michael Giobbi, CTO at Armstrong.

"Additionally, with the NSG 9000's unparalleled output density, we can continue to expand our HD channel offerings in the future while maintaining exceptional video quality," he continued.

The NSG 9000 includes privacy mode edge encryption, providing a high level of security.

Harmonic said it has shipped more than 1 million edge QAMs to cable service providers worldwide.
