Future-Proofing the Cable Plant with Advanced MPEG Digital Video Capabilities
Cisco Systems integrates advanced Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) digital video functionality into its cable solution with the Cisco 6920 RateMUX, a statistical remultiplexing system for cable networks. The Cisco 6920 RateMUX is the first in a series of Cisco products designed to assist cable operators and digital video service providers in maximizing the bandwidth efficiency and distribution of digital video. It extends the life of an existing cable plant and set-top equipment, providing a smooth migration between legacy systems and standards-based, New World solutions.
The Cisco 6920 RateMUX increases cable profits with advanced MPEG- 2 video processing by:
- Customizing channel lineups with flexible transport stream remultiplexing
- Optimizing HFC bandwidth through innovative DSP- based rate reduction and statistical multiplexing
- Generating new revenue streams with standards- based digital ad insertion.
