By using these capabilities, you can:

  • Cut operational costs by consolidating video processing and transcoding for multiple screens into one headend platform
  • Reduce capital expenses with industry-leading density to serve more connected devices per platform
  • Protect your technology investment with a solution that meets your needs even as you migrate to an all-IP architecture
