Bresnan Picks EGT Encoders

Bresnan Communications is using EGT’s MPEG-2 encoders and digital-program-insertion applications in the operator’s Billings, Mont., master headend and surrounding sites in support of its recently launched digital-simulcast network.

In the Billings system, Bresnan installed a fully redundant, variable-bit-rate headend with ad-insertion capabilities using EGT's Encore video processor and Orchestra Redundancy Control System.

Bresnan deployed EGT's Quartet video processors at the local Montana and Wyoming sites of Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, Casper and Cheyenne, incorporating them into an Internet-protocol-based distribution ring.
