INC is delivering the future of entertainment today
and Dish Network were the first entertainment services
in the U.S to deliver all digital quality,
multi-channel TV programming to an 18-inch
satellite dish. The launch of these services in 1994 provided people
across the continental U.S. a much needed
alternative to franchise cable. These providers
pioneered technological breakthroughs, including
a system with interactive on-screen program
guide and pay per view ordering by remote
control. Other advances in technology enable viewers
to have greater control
over their viewing experience with new television
services, such as digital video
recording (DVR), high definition
TV (HDTV), expanded multicultural
programming and interactive programming.
The innovations and awards for digital broadcast
satellite (DBS) technology that the
two companies have accomplished have redefined
the world of television entertainment.
||INC offers a complete digital basic and digital
expanded cable service consisting
of 90 to 110 channels. This programming
doesn't require the need for an
additional set top box, for which the
franchised operator typically charges an
extra fee. This lineup works with any cable ready television.
Additional video needs include security,
character generation and video origination.
Video origination is web-based and includes a dedicated
character generated information channel
that originates from the property leasing office.
This service is distributed to all residents in the community
via the cable system. Security origination
includes a dedicated channel which produces
a live video image on a dedicated channel
over the cable system originating from the
property’s gated entrance(s). This reveals
would be guests to the resident prior to
the resident allowing access into the property.
These services are delivered to all
residents over a state of the art cable
plant that typically consists of coaxial
cable and fiber optic cable. The fiber optic
cable deployed enables bandwidth capability
to accommodate the many future services
that will become available.
FCC “OTARD” RULING
For the first time, Multi Dwelling
Unit (MDU) customers have access
to the DirecTV or Dish Network
programming and services without the installation of
dish per unit on the balcony or in other unsightly locations.
INC provides the property with a design model that virtually
eliminates the installation of small dedicated
DBS antennas for individual units.
We realize that this is one of the most
undesirable issues that apartment and condominium
communities face today as a result of the
FCC ruling relating to OTARD (“Over
The Air Reception Devices”). With
the INC system design, we provide a “common
antenna” as a central connecting point
making DBS service(s) available to
all residents. This service, which cannot be provided
by the local franchise cable provider, enables the
community to restrict the installation of individual
antennas on balconies or ground mounted
With all of the exciting entertainment
choices and features that the INC private cable
system offers combined with the financial
features and incentives available to developers
and owners, INC is delivering
the future of entertainment today.
