Video System Design
Video has become the key third component to a successful telecommunications provider’s service offering. There are numerous technological and business decisions that must be made prior to a successful video services launch. EAI has been on the leading edge of video deployments assisting large MSO’s and independent telephone companies in their technology selection and network designs since 1988.
Our video clients run the gamut from traditional hybrid-fiber-coaxial networks with MSO’s spanning over 100,000 homes, rural telephone companies, major college and university campuses, to South American luxury resorts. We have designed and successfully implemented IPTV and RFTV headends containing hundreds of channels for independent telephone companies serving customers over fiber-to-the-home and ADSL feed-copper networks.
Where needed, EAI offers a full suite of services for video including technology selection, headend design, off-air channel acquisition, IP network planning, satellite dish farm and tower designs and more. We also offer assistance in obtaining franchise agreements from city and county governments and re-transmission consent from off-air content providers.
Our additional skills include:
- IP infrastructure design and systems integration
- RF video systems design
- Antenna tower and off-air design
