Tandberg Television has confirmed that KT, Korea’s leading integrated wired/wireless communications service provider, has selected a Tandberg IPTV head end to support the continued growth of its Mega TV IPTV service. Mega TV has over 700,000 subscribers and provides interactive and pay per view services, including movies on-demand. KT will use TANDBERG Television's market leading EN8090 HD MPEG-4 AVC and EN8030 SD MPEG-4 AVC encoders to expand its linear broadcast TV services.
SK Broadband, South Korea's second largest broadband provider, is also deploying a Tandberg IPTV head end, which includes HD and SD MPEG-4 AVC encoding. This solution will enable SK Broadband to launch linear broadcast television services in 2009.
