TBS Selects Scientific Atlanta's MPEG-4 for IP Delivery

Turner Broadcasting System has chosen Scientific Atlanta's MPEG-4 D9034 Encoder to deliver MPEG-4 signals over IP for telecom companies. Scientific Atlanta's standard-definition MPEG-4 systems using its D9034 Encoders will be installed at Turner Broadcasting's Techwood campus and CNN Center in Atlanta to provide signals for CNN, CNN Headline News, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network and Turner Classic Movies. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Scientific Atlanta system has the capability to mix both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals in one transport stream. This allows programmers to provide both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 content from the same transponder, using the same conditional access and network management system for simplified operations and a unified authorization procedure for individual customers.
