Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB) is delivering its Commercial Video Solution to Charter Communications. ADB’s Commercial Video Solution plays a role in Charter’s plan to enhance hotels’ video entertainment services with the latest in-room video solutions, including a full range of high-definition (HD) channels, video-on-demand, pay-per-view, and concierge services. Charter will also make ADB’s video solution available to other commercial venues. Running on ADB’s set-back boxes, it works in tru2Way or legacy networks, and supports both digital and analog environments, alongside broadband services.
ADB began shipping its equipment to Charter in May.
ADB is showcasing its latest pay-TV platforms for the US cable market at the Cable Show. Innovations on display include:
- Commercial Video Solution, offering a complete turn-key platform that is integrated into operators’ existing network plants, leveraging both QAM video and the IP backbone infrastructure to yield an enterprise-class scalable system.
- Phantom – tru2way set-back box designed to fit on the back of any flat panel TV. Phantom is an all-digital, OpenCable platform that includes 3D video capabilities and innovative features such as ADB’s patent pending DVR-Lite technology.
- Spirit, a fully interactive entry-level HD set-top box to offer advanced services with minimal capital expense. It packs ADB’s latest tru2way implementation in a small, cost-effective box. Spirit is destined to replace set-tops that have lived beyond their time – whether it be standard definition, legacy, or just end of life software.
- ADB has enhanced its tru2way Analyzer to include the ability to co-locate the platform in Network Operation Centers where technicians can remotely monitor and retrieve network parameters. All the features are available on hand including access to CableLabs EYES edge application suite.
