Highlights to Include CONDOR Cable TV Headend System and STB Platform; HD, SD, and IP Encoders; miniCMTS; and Optical Transport and RF Management Solutions
August 4, 2017 San Diego, California - Pico Digital, an ATX Networks company, today announced that it will showcase a variety of cost-effective solutions for cable systems at Andina Link Costa Rica 2017. Highlights in booth 59 will include Pico Digital's CONDOR cable TV headend system and set-top box platform, in addition to the company's latest HD, SD, and IP encoders. Pico Digital will also be highlighting its mini cable modem termination system (miniCMTS200a) and ATX's optical transport and RF management solutions.

Cable operators who have struggled to transition away from analog TV or dead-end digital technologies are adopting Pico Digital's CONDOR platform as a way to give their subscribers the digital media experience they expect at a much lower cost than they imagined. An affordable solution for cable systems of every size, the upgradeable CONDOR system allows operators to efficiently convert to all-digital today to meet their subscribers' entertainment and connectivity needs — such as HDTV channels, secure premium entertainment, and high-speed broadband Internet.

Highlighted Pico Digital encoders at Andina Link Costa Rica will include the professional-grade PD1000 HD encoder modulation system, PD6IP six-channel IP encoder, and SDQ6 six-channel SD encoder. The PD1000 HD allows users to encode both HD and SD signals in MPEG2 or H.264 formats. The unit supports real-time encoding, while offering the flexibility of two, four, six, or eight HDMI (in the clear), HD-SDI, component, and composite (closed captioning) inputs. The PD6IP encodes six composite video and stereo inputs into one MPTS or six SPTS outputs, while the SDQ6 encodes six composite video and stereo inputs into a multiplexed QAM and ASI outputs. All three encoders enable remote control and monitoring via an intuitive web interface.

For the cost-effective delivery of high-speed data services, Pico Digital will be highlighting its miniCMTS200a, which has been upgraded with new features and improved performance. The miniCMTS200a supports up to 400 DOCSIS 2.0 modems, or 250 DOCSIS 3.0 plus 150 DOCSIS 2.0 modems. With 16 downstream bonded channels for up to 800-Mbps downstream and four upstream channels offering 120-Mbps upstream data delivery, the unit easily copes with today's demand for over-the-top (OTT) video services or managed IPTV services.

Enabling network growth without the need for additional fiber infrastructure, ATX Networks multi-wavelength solutions for optical transport deliver superior performance and signal quality, while significantly reducing capital expenditures. Future-proof, reliable, and flexible solutions highlighted at Andina Link Costa Rica will include optical transceivers, receivers, amplifiers, stackers, and destackers from the ChromaFlex and TranScend platforms and I-HUB outdoor node, in addition to standalone transport solutions and optical passives.

Taking place September 5-7 at the Barceló San José Palacio Hotel, Andina Link Costa Rica is a leading exhibition for cable television and convergent technologies in Latin America.
