MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2013) - TelVue® Corporation (
A Charter spokesperson said the decision to use TelVue was based on the continued success that Charter Media West has had since deploying TelVue HyperCasters across the Western United States. The benefit of this system is lower cap-ex and op-ex costs, driving the cost per channel down significantly while improving the workflow and the bottom line.
Charter Media's LO/LA channels will be played out from multiple TelVue HyperCaster IP broadcast servers, to be deployed in various markets including Asheville, Spartanburg, Birmingham, Huntsville and more.
The key networking feature is the use of CCMS Plus traffic integration software in each HyperCaster which imports schedule files generated by Charter's traffic system -- the same system used to schedule spot ads. Each TelVue HyperCaster retrieves and loads the content and schedules. If any scheduled content is missing, the HyperCaster will notify the Production Department. The HyperCaster sends a verification (VER) file back to the archive server, to be retrieved by the traffic system. The process is fully automated. Neither the Traffic nor the Production team ever have to directly access the servers at the headends.
Other cable MSO's are benefiting by deploying similar models, including one MSO which consolidated 120 leased access and local origination channels in their region, all supported from one central location using TelVue HyperCasters.
