Visium Set-Back Box

ATX’s Visium™ Set-Back Box (VSBB) is a low-cost security adapter designed to enable commercial video service providers to bring hospitality and other commercial customers into compliance with security requirements through the delivery of encrypted bulk video to properties lacking Pro:Idiom™-capable TVs. ATXs Visium SBB is an ideal solution for commercial accounts currently being served with clear QAM video. The SBB solution allows MPEG4-based service delivery to properties with MPEG2-only capable TVs. The SBB features an Integrated Program Guide (IPG) designed to improve hotel guests’ experiences by significantly simplifying the navigation of lengthy channel line-ups. Self-configuration and centralized management and monitoring capabilities through ATXs Visium Manager, a cloud-based element management system, simplify deployment and reduce operational complexity.
