Comcast Media Center Introduces Fiber-Based Content Distribution

HITS, a business unit of the Comcast Media Center, introduced a national terrestrial fiber distribution service for delivering video programming to cable MSOs. The service features conditional access from Verimatrix and video processing and delivery powered by Harmonic. It uses the Comcast network to deliver video content to cable affiliates. The HITS fiber-based service is positioned either as a primary delivery vehicle of video content or as a redundant, backup path for satellite-delivered programming in the event of satellite interruptions.
