A turnkey Appear solution for reception from primary distribution feeds, e.g. satellite/terrestrial signals, to reception from other contributing networks, such as IP. The operator is free to mix and match any combination of programmes to be included in the cable offering. Incoming programmes are descrambled, either by CAM-, SIM-, or software-based CA support. Programmes can be directly included in output multiplexes, or transcoded with a new codec or bitrate scheme. Transcoded programmes can be statistically multiplexed for maximum bitrate allotment. Market-specific features include a built-in MPEG multiplexer with advanced functionality, individual component handling and PSI/SI table management. The multiplexer provides muxes on IP for distribution to remote head-ends for digital or analogue “to-the-home” distribution. The multiplexed signals can also be QAM modulated directly into the HFC network. Local web-based user interface for configuration and patented redundancy for signal paths and equipment, the solution features open API ensuring integration with external management and control systems.
