DigitalGlue Launches Harmonic Upgrade For TMC Design Corporation

DigitalGlue announced on October 16th that the company has launched another large-scale project for long-time client TMC Design Corporation, a provider of technology solutions to government, military, and commercial customers.

DigitalGlue is working with TMC Design Corporation to upgrade the company's deployment of Harmonic video encoding, decoding, and multiplexing solutions, enabling a satellite communications installation for the U.S. Army. Based in Las Cruces, New Mexico, TMC Design Corporation specializes in RF and microwave systems including antennas for electronic warfare, counter IED, real-time casualty assessment, and communications/telemetry systems, among numerous other military/defense applications.

The new systems from Harmonic, a provider of video delivery infrastructure, being installed at TMC Design Corporation include an Ellipse® 3100 contribution encoder with 4:2:2 10-bit compression, a ProStream® 9100 high-density, real-time transcoder multiplexer, and a ProView™ 7100 integrated receiver-decoder. Working in tandem, the three systems create an end-to-end, low-latency video delivery infrastructure for the highest levels of HD quality in satellite transmissions. The equipment is expected to go live at TMC Design Corporation by the end of the year.

"Throughout our seven-year partnership with TBC Integration and now DigitalGlue, we've always been able to count on their high level of expertise regarding space communications and Harmonic, our encoding/transcoding vendor of choice," said TMC Design Corporation COO Scott Peterson.

DigitalGlue President and Co-founder Sean Busby said, "The current project is an excellent example of the all-encompassing range of services we are able to provide, from systems definition and engineering to equipment sales, configuration, and service."
