Antietam Cable deploys Evolution Digital's uDTAs

Maryland's Antietam Cable and Evolution Digital announced at the NCTC Independent conference in San Francisco this week that Antietam is deploying the vendor's universal digital terminal adapters. Like other cable TV operators, Antietam is turning to uDTAs for bandwidth reclamation that will help it support new services such as increasing amounts of HD programming.

Increased deployment of uDTAs is evidence that operators are seeing a need for new bandwidth management strategies that probably were not even on their radar a few years ago. It could also be sign that more small operators are seeing competitive or customer pressure to increase their HD programming.
