RGB for island NGN

February 12, 2009

RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that United Telecommunication Services (UTS), the parent company of TDS, the wireless cable service provider servicing the Dutch islands of Curaçao and Bonaire, has deployed RGB's Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) as a key element of its next-generation video delivery network.

Working with Divitel, RGB's system integration partner in the Netherlands, UTS has migrated its TDS system to a fully digital, IP-based platform. RGB's BNP, offering high density grooming, statistical multiplexing and transrating, enables UTS to offer their subscribers in Curaçao and Bonaire a number of new services, including significantly more high definition (HD) channels at extremely high quality.

"Utilizing RGB's innovative equipment has helped us to deploy a future-proof IPTV platform for UTS—the solution meets today's requirements, as well as future demands," said Hans Kornmann, Chief Executive Officer, Divitel. "The new core system gives the local TDS system a high quality picture performance at excellent operational costs. It's a technical winner and an excellent basis for a successful cross media business."
