KT Selects TANDBERG Television IPTV Head-end

KT has selected a TANDBERG Television IPTV head end to support the continued growth of its Mega TV IPTV service in Korea. Specifically, KT will use TANDBERG Television's EN8090 HD MPEG-4 AVC and EN8030 SD MPEG-4 AVC encoders to expand its linear broadcast TV services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

KT's Mega TV has over 700,000 subscribers and provides interactive and pay per view services, including movies on-demand.

Korea Telecom already uses a wide range of TANDBERG Television head end and C&D (Contribution & Distribution) equipment for the Mega TV IPTV service. This head end expansion contract follows a competitive tender.

TANDBERG Television is part of Ericsson.
