Summary
  • Scientific Atlanta is delivering the first hybrid digital/​analog system for cable near-video on demand (NVOD) called Press Movies. The new system requires 750MHz fiber-to-the-node cable systems and offers 80 to 90 analog channels compared with the 50 available on current 550MHz systems. Cable operators using Press Movies can run movies on the additional channels at staggered schedules. Press Movies is different from current pay-per-view systems in that users have some degree of stop, rewind and fast-forward control over the movie, faster access and the cable operator has greater choice for movies. Cable operators can upgrade to the system for $350,000 after the 750MHz plant is installed. Much of the cost is devoted to MPEG encoding equipment. The system includes Scientific Atlanta's 8600X set-top box, which operators rent to subscribers, who then use the box to order movies.
