Comcast Chooses Thomson's Digital-to-Analog Adapters

Thomson announced a purchase agreement with Comcast covering the supply of digital-to-analog (DTA) adapters. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The DTA adapter is a one-way device that enables cable operators to move quickly and cost-efficiently to all-digital infrastructures by delivering digital-quality video and audio service to existing analog cable customers. In addition, following the February 17, 2009 broadcast digital transition, cable operators will provide analog, standard- and high-definition digital broadcast signals to their customers.

  • In July 2007, Comcast awarded a contract to Thomson for VoIP cable modems (eMTAs modems) to support the continued rollout of its Comcast Digital Voice service. Comcast will use Thomson's DHG535 eMTA to connect its customers to both Comcast Digital Voice and Comcast High-Speed Internet through one integrated device.
    Thomson has been a long-term supplier of data-only cable modems to Comcast.
