Pace Networks has announced that Canal Digital Sweden, part of the Nordic television distributor network and ISP, Canal Digital, will deploy the Pace MDC1000 headend platform to support its nationwide upgrade of SMATV headends.

Implementing the Pace MDC1000 compact headend platform will enable Canal Digital Sweden to expand its existing broadcast infrastructure to deliver digital TV, including HDTV, with minimum disruption to customers. The Pace MDC1000 will enable Canal Digital to rapidly deploy digital services to smaller SMATV and cable TV networks, including previously hard to access areas such as suburbs and rural communities. The system can be managed remotely for diagnostics, configuration, maintenance.

Canal Digital transmits over 200 hours worth of HDTV content per day via 14 HD channels, and with more than 100 standard definition TV channels.

Karl-Gustav Niska, technical director, Canal Digital, said in a statement, “Our work with Pace  allows us to upgrade our SMATV and off-net cable TV networks without disrupting existing services, and to maximize the way bandwidth is managed locally to deliver a broad range of new services."
