Cablemás, a cable TV operator in Mexico with more than one million subscribers, is undertaking a comprehensive digital simulcast upgrade of its networks using products from RGB Networks.

The upgrade already has been completed in several of the more than 40 cities Cablemás serves throughout Mexico, including Cuernavaca, Tijuana, Juarez, Merida, Cancun and Acapulco. This upgrade enables Cablemás to reclaim substantial amounts of analog bandwidth and to offer its subscribers advanced digital cable services, including high definition television (HDTV).

Cablemás is deploying several RGB products as part of its digital simulcast upgrade, including the Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) for statistical multiplexing, transrating, grooming and ad splicing, Simulcast Edge Processor (SEP) for edge decoding, and Modular Media Converter (MMC) for ASI to Gigabit Ethernet conversion.
