The article presents information on various products which have been launched recently. Radiant Communications Inc. has introduced its V4400 Series MPEG-2 encoder and decoder units. This series enables television-over-IP applications including enhanced distance learning, corporate training, security and remote broadcasting with closed captioning signals passed through the MPEG-2 stream. MatrixStream Technologies Inc. has announced its InstantVOD Platform, a secure, end-to-end IP video-on-demand system chat supports HD and DVD quality videos. The platform does not require broadband providers to upgrade their existing network infrastructure or provide QoS from the backbone to the customer site. Electro Standards Laboratories has expanded its data communications cable line to include the new multi-fiber MTP/MPO Fan-Out cables. Designed to save front-panel space and streamline fiber management, the cables are supplied in both single-mode and multimode fiber.
