Service Electric Cable TV Inc. will use BigBand Networks Inc.’s “BMR1200 Broadband Multimedia Service Router” to roll out digital simulcasting in its Pennsylvania systems.

The cable company will use gigabit-Ethernet technology to roll out digital simulcast and connect multiple Service Electric systems, including two primary headends.

The BigBand BMR preps digital signals for gigabit-Ethernet transport, performing dejittering functions to assure video quality after transport.

Service Electric plans to consolidate digital ad servers and transport advertisements to edge-based BMRs that will perform splicing based on the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers’ 30 and 35 standards.
