VideoPropulsion® Interactive Television, Inc. (OTC:VPTV) has announced it is collaborating with New Delhi based MultiVirt India Pvt Ltd to create low-cost PC-based headends for India's CATV markets.

The MultiVirt integrated appliances are capable of selectively receiving DVB-S2 satellite programming, optionally transcoding from H.264 to MPEG2, and re-modulating the MPEG digital television programs over QAM. The appliances use VideoPropulsion’s preeminent, high-density MPEG Transcoder and DVB-C QAM modulator (ITU-T J.83 Annex A) PCIe cards. The resultant multiplex of services is transmitted over a hybrid fiber-coax network or a simple coax network.

VideoPropulsion has commissioned MultiVirt to create unique, low-cost solutions suitable for the Indian CATV market that will help speed the digitization of television services in India. Technology supplied by VideoPropulsion will include the ability for MultiVirt to offer bulk MPEG transcoding to support conversion of H.264 to MPEG2, MPEG2 to H. 264, and H.264 to H.264 for OTT and other mobile video delivery applications.

Now in its 40th year of continuous operation, VideoPropulsion also offers its own turnkey transcoder appliance models in the company’s FloodGate® FG-5000 Series Transcoder. Optional DVB-ASI I/O, QAM outputs, and AES-128 encryption is available. The FG-5000 can support several flavors of encryption including: Pro:Idiom®, SamsungLYNK®, Verimatrix®, VSecure®, Conax®, and other custom proprietary encryptions.
