Bresnan Communications  is using EGT’s  Encore and Quartet systems for MPEG-2 encoding and digital program insertion (DPI) applications in the Billings, Mont. master headend and surrounding sites for the operator’s recently-launched digital simulcast video network.
The Billings system is follow-on business for the two. Bresnan has been using EGT systems in its Montana and Wyoming sites of Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, Casper and Cheyenne.
Bresnan has installed a fully redundant, variable bit-rate headend with full ad-insertion capabilities using EGT's Encore video processor and Orchestra Redundancy Control System in the Billings system.
EGT is providing Bresnan with project management and system integration support for the Billings installation, including the installation of equipment, vendor coordination and acceptance testing.
