This is one of the best Motorola videos I’ve seen in a while. The four-minute short embedded above details one small, rural pay-TV provider’s conversion to an all-digital system. TriCounty Telecom was locked at 60 analog channels it could deliver to subscribers on its 400 MHz plant. (And I thought 550 MHz was low!) By going digital, TriCounty can now offer more than 400 channels, as well as DVR service, and soon whole-home DVR. The video here goes into specifics of the business case behind going all-digital, how TriCounty is using NAS-RAC to avoid the cost of maintaining its own Digital Access Controller, and the increased revenue the operator is seeing now that the transition is complete.
