Requirements for a contractor, acting as Systems Integrator, to undertake the full replacement of the Annunciator Head End
Each central office-based cluster is designed to control and integrate VOD and program information elements and the video head end
The company, which started as a family run enterprise in 1947, has owned and operated its own Minerva video head end
since 2003, offering 150 channels of digital television to its current 2000-customer base.
It is clear from the beginning, and compared with laying new fiber or a new head end
it is exponentially less costly.
For example, it provides end-to-end monitoring, test and troubleshooting from the video head end
, through the delivery of the TV signal, to the end user.
It tracks VOD system health and highlights abnormalities, allowing head end
personnel to quickly identify issues that may be out of the norm.
