Teracom, Cisco launch digital TV system
June 7, 2016
Teracom, a provider of digital terrestrial transmitted radio and TV in Denmark, has launched a new digital headend, which enhances its DTT services.
Teracom, in close collaboration with Cisco, performed a technology renewal and replacement project to help simplify terrestrial distribution for national and regional TV broadcasters in Denmark.
Using the D9902 Digital Content Manager (DCM), Teracom will be able to broadcast more high-definition content and services by using the same applicable bandwidth, over the DTT network.
“Cisco is a trusted advisor we can rely on,” said Martin Løbel, chief executive officer, Teracom A/S. “Together, the local Cisco video team and our technical staff have created an encoding and IP statistical multiplexing solution for our broadcast customers that meets our critical business plan, and goals for features and timing.”
“With the DCM being a key element of the Cisco hybrid virtual solution, it can support a full range of video entertainment services,” said Yves Padrines, vice president, Global Service Provider, Cisco EMEAR. “We have enjoyed a long working relationship with Teracom over the years, and we continue to design and implement network technology solutions that will meet current and future challenges.”
