Antietam Broadband in the U.S. and Sogetel in Canada have deployed the ARRIS ME-7000 Converged Compression Platform to deliver video content to subscribers while lowering total cost of ownership. Antietam also partnered with ARRIS Global Services to deploy the ME-7000 into its network. The two companies join nearly 30 operators worldwide who have selected the ME-7000, which provides video compression (including in 4K and HDR) as well as advertising splicing and multiplexing through a new HEVC module.
“We deployed the ARRIS ME-7000 to give our subscribers the highest-quality video services while creating a pathway for delivering tomorrow’s advanced TV experiences,” says Isis Thiago De Souza, Vice President, Technical Services at Sogetel. “The platform’s efficiency, flexibility and upgradability will help us realise new energy savings immediately and well into the future.”
Tom Williams, Vice President, Engineering and Technology, at Antietam Broadband, comments: “The ARRIS ME-7000 enabled us to achieve new efficiencies in delivering advanced TV services while providing the framework to scale to tomorrow’s 4K and HDR services with additional ad splicing and multiplexing capabilities.”
