RGB Networks has upgraded its Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) to support the MPEG-4/H.264 video format as well as the addition of digital Emergency Alert System (EAS) capabilities. Enhancements have also been made to ensure that all services delivered through the BNP continue to offer superior picture quality under the widest range of network conditions.

Other feature additions to the BNP include program substitution, enabling operators to seamlessly switch between programs on a single output channel, and SCTE 21 to SCTE 20 conversion, allowing operators to continue Closed Captioning through the DTV transition. The new capabilities are included in the latest release of the BNP’s operating software, version 2.1, which is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year.
