ASTRA Platform Services GmbH, a subsidiary of the Luxembourg-based satellite service operator SES ASTRA, has selected Harmonic’s video processing solutions to support APS’ digital free-to-air TV service for Kabeldienstleistungs GmbH (KDL), a service provider to independent and private cable operators in Germany.

Independent cable operators today serve several million German subscribers, and with APS’ infrastructure upgrade, KDL now can provide up to 22 additional digital free-to-air channels being delivered from APS and SES ASTRA to the cable subscribers via the cable headends. Harmonic’s IP-based MPEG-2 standard definition (SD) DiviCom Electra 5000 encoders were selected by APS for the project.
