HKNGIS Members visited PCCW now TV headend

To appreciate the operations of pay-TV service based on IPTV technology, HKNGIS members paid a visit to the headend facility of PCCW’s now TV service on October 21, 2010. Mr. Chan, VP of PCCW Broadcast Operations & Engineering, was present to welcome and accompany the members.

As a key element of PCCW’s quadruple-play customer experience, now TV service is one of the world's largest commercial deployments of IPTV and Hong Kong's largest pay-TV provider. Launched in September 2003, now TV currently provides more than 180 channels of local, Asian and international programming, in both SD & HD formats. In addition, now TV is both a leading producer of news, sports and infotainment programming and a provider of a wide range of interactive services.

During the visit, Mr. Chan introduced to the members the setup and operations of various facilities within the now TV headend including programme playout control room, post-production facilities for dubbing & editing, as well as TV studios equipped with cameras, lighting & live broadcast support. HKNGIS Members were very interested and impressed by the setup and operations. There was also fruitful discussion and sharing of views on various aspects of IPTV.
