Terayon's DM 6400 Network CherryPicker digital video networking platform is the first product to enable standards-based program insertion and splicing in the MPEG-4/AVC format. With up to 50% greater compression efficiency than MPEG-2, MPEG-4/AVC enables satellite providers to deliver twice the programming possible with MPEG-2. However, before they can realize this capacity improvement, satellite providers must seamlessly migrate several critical applications - including digital program switching, grooming and local digital ad insertion.

The DM 6400 can enable the seamless migration of these applications to MPEG-4/AVC and has been proven in the satellite industry by major satellite providers, who use it to groom custom MPEG-2 channel line-ups and to deliver HDTV and local channels. The DM 6400 also supports the coexistence of MPEG-4/AVC and MPEG-2 content within the same platform and on the same network, which is key for a smooth migration to MPEG-4/AVC. The DM 6400 utilizes advanced proprietary application-specific integrated circuit chips designed for the unique computational requirements of compressed digital video to deliver superior picture quality for both standard definition and high definition digital video services.

Terayon Communication Systems, Inc. provides real-time digital video networking applications to cable, satellite and telecommunication service providers worldwide, which have deployed more than 6,000 of Terayon's digital video systems to localize services and advertising on-demand and brand their programming, insert millions of digital ads, offer HDTV and other digital video services. Terayon maintains its headquarters in Santa Clara, CA(USA) and has sales and support offices worldwide.
