Mexican TV Provider Megacable Deploys Unified Headend Solution from Harmonic
Megacable, one of the largest cable TV providers in Mexico, has deployed an integrated headend solution from Harmonic to power its cable TV services. Employing a high-density, scalable architecture that includes Harmonic’s Electra 9200 encoder, ProStream 9100 with ACE high-density stream processor and NMX Digital Service Manager, Megacable cost-effectively delivers high-quality SD and HD video content to STBs located in more than 110 cities throughout Mexico.
“Prior to this installation, we were managing a variety of diverse headends around the country, which made it challenging to provide a consistent channel lineup and good video quality to our customers,” said Emerson Sapaio, chief technology officer at Megacable. “Through a unified headend, Harmonic’s unique video processing and network management solutions improve our operational efficiencies, allowing us to deliver exceptional video quality, uniform channel lineups and more quickly roll out new channels and revenue-generating services.”
