Evolution Digital LLC, which bills itself as being “the fastest-growing supplier of digital solutions for bandwidth reclamation and next-generation advanced
set-top boxes,” is selling its wares to Antietam Cable in Washington County, Md.

Evolution’s uDTAs are designed to integrate with existing Motorola and Cisco platforms, and they were designed for use by cable systems needing to reclaim bandwidth. Antietam Cable is one of those operators, and it’s developed a digital transition strategy to reclaim bandwidth for the launch of more HD and advanced services.

The cableco is using Evolution’s customization and factory-to-home fulfillment programs that allow operators to use their own branding on the packaging and material that is delivered to subscribers’ homes. Antietam essentially provides its customer list, and Evolution takes care of delivering the product directly to the end user. Evolution also provides a factory-to-home fulfillment program that reportedly is seamless to the customer; subscribers interface with the provider and the product shows up on their doorsteps.

“These value-added programs help reduce the confusion for subscribers during the digital conversion process,” the company says, “in essence reducing the cable operator’s labor costs, overhead and allocated resources needed.”

Comments Antietam President Brian Lynch, “It is our goal at Antietam to provide the fastest HSD, most HD channels and crystal-clear digital phone. Reclaiming bandwidth allows us to continue to meet and exceed the subscriber needs.”
