Turner Taps S-A for Europe


Turner Broadcasting System International Inc. will deploy a Scientific-Atlanta Inc. MPEG-2 (Moving Picture Expert Group) digital encoding platform in Europe, the vendor said Tuesday.

S-A said two encoding systems will be installed in London using “D9030” encoders with “PreSightPlus” preprocessing technology and “Regulus” closed-loop statistical multiplexing, which will help the programmer to deliver high picture quality at bandwidth-saving low bit rates.

TBS International will use S-A’s “ROSA” system for management and control of the two encoding systems.
