Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (MVPD) must avoid becoming Oldsmobiles. Multi-screen delivery is a profoundly complicated business. This is an area where experience really counts.
The CALM Act requires video service providers (VSPs) to meet specific audio leveling standards. This paper reviews a best-of-breed solution that enables VSPs to solve loudness problems and avoid penalties, without compromising the audio experience.
The HEVC standard has the potential to have a revolutionary impact on video delivery, as it will dramatically reduce the bandwidth compared to existing H.264 delivery systems. This paper examines what HEVC is and reviews the development of the standard, how past and current compression standards are extended by HEVC, and which applications will benefit.

Ethernet is simple, lower cost and familiar and, therefore, easy for end users to own and operate Click here!. A single Ethernet jack can support multiple connections and a wide range of access bandwidths. This enables end-users to grow connectivity and bandwidth easily over time.
In late June 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for a next-generation technology that could revolutionalize the TV industry. In a landmark decision, the nation's highest court dismissed legal challenges to the Remote Storage Digital Video Recorder (RS-DVR), enabling broadband providers to put all the time-shifting capabilities of a traditional digital video recorder (DVR) into a network-based environment.
The transition to digital TV and high-definition TV has made consumers much more aware of the quality of their video and any interruptions to its delivery. The current economic downturn has the potential to drive demand higher for in-home entertainment, including increased use of video-on-demand (VOD) services. With consumers spending more time looking at their TV screen, this could be good news for cable multiple service operators (MSOs)—as long as they can deliver the quality of service that consumers expect.
