Tut, Verimatrix to Power IPTV for MBO


MBO Video LLC/Cim-Tel Cable LLC will deploy next-generation Internet-protocol-TV services using Tut Systems Inc.'s “Astria” content processor and Verimatrix Inc.’s “Verimatrix Content Authority Systems.”

Mannford, Okla.-based MBO Video -- which controls more than 1,900 miles of fiber optics throughout Oklahoma and Arkansas -- also said it will add MPEG-4 AVC (Moving Picture Expert Group/Advanced Video Compression) video to its headend in order to yield better picture quality while significantly lowering the bandwidth required for current MPEG-2 video.
