Vecima Networks is launching the Entra Interactive Video Controller at the 2019 SCTE·ISBE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana. Part of Vecima’s Video and Broadband Solutions portfolio of products, the Entra Interactive Video Controller (IVC) is a headend device that provides SCTE 55-2-enabled, set-top boxes with two way interactive capabilities required for Video on Demand, Switched Digital Video, management, and other functionalities.
The Entra Interactive Video Controller (IVC) is a dense, out-of-band controller that supports both Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) R-PHY and traditional RF networks. For R-PHY deployments, the IVC is an R-OOB Auxiliary Core with downstream (DEPI) and upstream (UEPI) interfaces. For traditional RF deployments, the IVC provides one downstream and up to eight upstream RF service groups with support for up to 16,000 set-top boxes.
“We’re excited to launch the Entra Interactive Video Controller at Cable Tec Expo 2019. It’s an important expansion to the Entra product line that demonstrates Vecima as a leader in DAA technologies,” said Mr. Ryan Nicometo, SVP of Product & Marketing at Vecima. “SCTE 55-2-based, set-top boxes are still deployed in the millions around the world. Entra IVC provides a bridge for these devices to next generation access technologies, and continued investment protection for service providers.”
Vecima will showcase the Interactive Video Controller at the 2019 SCTE·ISBE Cable-Tec Expo (Booth 1529).
