According to a recent report, the value of the global cable television network market will grow by 5.1 % over the next four years. For MSOs, sharing in this growth means adjusting to rapidly changing video consumption patterns. Viewers today are looking beyond traditional pay-TV services for an engaging digital media experience with greater control of when, where, and on what devices they view video content — whether it’s their smart TV, PC, tablet, or smartphone. Adopting an IP-based infrastructure allows MSOs to meet this demand by making video signal and data delivery simple, fast, and efficient. However, with the expense of replacing equipment and the challenge of fully servicing customers while doing so, transitioning from a QAM-based infrastructure to IP is the greatest difficulty they face today.
ATX makes transitioning to an IP infrastructure painless and cost-effective. The company works closely with MSOs — no matter where they are in the transition process — providing the agility and flexibility to quickly deliver the perfect solution to address their specific needs. ATX products allow MSOs to decrypt, encrypt, and transition video between QAM, IP, and analog for delivery to MDUs, hotels, hospitals, and commercial buildings — whether they rely on coax or have incorporated IPTV systems. On-premises solutions offer viewers the advanced features and engaging experience they demand, while converting digital signals to analog for legacy TVs. In addition, the company offers end-to-end solutions that allow smaller service providers to convert their operations to all-digital immediately, while adding new services over time to meet their customers’ expectations.
