"I looked at other companies like Tandberg TV, Tiernan (Comtec TV) and Harris, but I chose Adtec Digital because Kevin Ancelin (President of Adtec Digital) called me back on a Saturday night. Kevin either calls me or emails me at anytime and the tech support is always amazing and that's worth its weight in gold!"
- Michael Sandorse, President/Director of Engineering, Remote Facilities Consulting Services
"One of our other stations had purchased an Adtec encoder and spoke highly of its ability to work and its affordable price range. We are very pleased with the ease of operation of the unit and its reliability. We've had no problems whatsoever. Support from Adtec has been better than superb."
-Charles Layno, Transmitter Supervisor, Fox 8 WGHP
"We tested the Adtec equipment and CBS approved the quality. We also broadcast daily for other major networks like CNN and NBC and we've never had any complaints about the quality of broadcast from the Adtec equipment."
-Bill Sciolla, Video Products Manager, Pittsburgh International Telecommunications
"I chose Adtec for three reasons: quality, price, and customer service. As the Director of Engineering for a television network, I am constantly searching for quality components and reasonable pricing. Adtec delivers for me."
-Mike Hartzog, Director of Engineering, Beach TV
"I am definitely putting Adtec products at the top of the list when we continue our MPEG transition.”
-Deepak Viswanath, Vice President, ITV Gold
"Introducing the DTA-3050 in the headend helped us enhance operational stability. Our subscribers actually wrote to us expressing their satisfaction that Multiplus, while still a new and untested operator, was delivering a stable service meeting their expectations. The fact that we can scramble all services onboard the DTA-3050 is a big advantage. We have found Adtec's units to be very stable. The modularity of the Adtec system allows us to partition-out services and localize problems making for a swift process."
- Lincoln Spiteri, Technical Manager, Multiplus
"It's a great product and we're excited to use it. It won't take anything other than training to deploy (IPTV content distribution) to a new campus."
-Kyle Harris, Communications Systems Administrator, Sherman Independent School District
"IPTV was new ground for all of us in the Dallas division. Adtec was instrumental in coming out and demonstrating the product to Sherman. We received a lot of support from Adtec."
-Tim Hendrix, Senior Account Manager, Ford Audio-Video
"We chose Adtec because of the simple operation and programming of the equipment, top-grade video and audio quality, competitive pricing, easy expansion upgrades, excellent customer service and the knowledgeable sales and technical staff."
-Bill Shewmaker, St. Mary's Medical Center
"The video quality was stunning. Nobody is going to believe the video was encoded as MPEG 2 at full D1 resolution with a data rate of 3.5 Mb/s."
-Patrick DeBourke, Bye-Net
"They work. We have tried a few others, and with the number of firewalls and the detail we require within our video programs it made it very difficult to find a solution that fit our specific needs."
-Brad Lawrence, Computer Science Lead, United Space Alliance, NASA's Kennedy Space Center
"Adtec provided us with a robust, yet cost effective video playout solution, allowing us to develop our own system of distribution and delivery without the need for massive forward investment in infrastructure. Adtec has also worked closely with us on future development, allowing us to grow the product from the originally installed equipment base without a major new replacement investment."
-Tom Henderson, Managing Director, Gym TV
"The three players worked flawlessly...at the Boston opening of 'Choosing to Participate', projecting our three-screen video program at a resolution higher than I expect anyone had seen in that auditorium to date. Teenagers as well as guys in business suits were seen to wipe away a tear or two."
-Steve Brosnahan, Partner and Principal, RBH Multimedia Inc.
"What prompted our purchase is one word: reliability."
-Glenn Martin, President, Automated Digital Display Systems
"Client feedback has been very positive. Anytime [the clients] want to change the content, we can remotely log in and change it."
-Russell Ludwig, Senior Project Manager, Biltmore Communications
"During conception of the project [Aichi Expo's 'Mountain of Dreams' Pavilion], we realized simplicity and stability was important to the project's success. The project called for a synchronous source and a simplified control system, with the ability to control the video, audio and lighting system. We are very pleased with Adtec's equipment and its performance. Synchronization is not easily achieved in this type of installation."
-Chris Yamaguchi, Technical Director, Tech-Knots Corporation
"We did a great deal of investigating to find a suitable replacement playback system. Adtec's players were selected for their robust nature, and because their network connectivity and API allowed us to write media management and distribution software, simplifying the installation of the video clips to the proper machines. The seek/play time is now reduced from nine seconds to about one second, and we have much more robust synchronization functions. Interrupted streams do not lose synchronization, and the presenters can fully use the system with much more confidence."
-Troy Rollins, RP Systems
"Due to the synchronization capacity of the edje, we can warrant perfect frame accurate panoramic images through the use of several players. On top of that, the Edje is of very good quality, with a large storage capacity and embedded intelligent controls that can support simple to very complex shows involving video playback."
-Benjamin SAINT GIRONS, Medialon
"Unbelievable how reliable those units are…in all that time we only had one shop that had a failing hard drive that was replaced within no time without any costs. The ads upload and auto DVD copying are for us very handy."
-Mike Bodijn, Burger King Netherlands
"This combination [Adtec's decoders used in conjunction with MagicBox's Aavelin] offers the user the ability to easily create and schedule both still pages and full motion video. It is a great solution for our cable and corporate customers to use for advertising."
-Tom Searcy, MagicBox
"This installation provides an innovative, cost-effective, scalable and aesthetic point of information system. We used to rely entirely upon customers being proactive by picking up literature for immediate information, much of which could be easily missed. Now we can communicate with our customers with greater depth, in real time with relevant information. The Pioneer Expansion Solution and Adtec's edje-PDP is a powerful marketing communication tool and exactly what we envisioned when we started this project."
-Owen Valentine Pringle, Head of Marketing Development, South Bank Centre
"I found Adtec's edje to be indestructible with high quality output. Being in the casino industry, which operates 24/7, the edje was the solution for continuous operation."
-Mike Tully, Harrah's Corporate Network
"Our guests love to see the amazing, unbelievable and fantastic, and we are pleased to show this to them on Adtec video players. Adtec's edje units are outstanding for playing lots of different videos, without the maintenance problems of a laser disk player or other non-digital video players."
-Scott Brody, Ripley's Believe It Or Not!
"We chose this system because original content can be loaded from one central location in Orlando to any/all remote sites. It was the smart choice."
-Eve Hinds, Westgate Resort
“We have been using Adtec’s solution since 1998 at operators like UPC, CaiW, Ziggo Essent, Casema, Multikabel, Delta and the Belgian Telenet. Now we are rolling out to other European countries like Germany, Switzerland in both analog as well as digital IP/ASI based we are trusting again on Adtec’s solutions.”
-Ferry Ouwendijk, Founder, Media Choice
"KSWO learned Adtec equipment is superior to any other technology on the market. I would recommend broadcasters use Adtec technology because the quality of the on-air video is unsurpassed, the overall versatility of the equipment is great and the equipment is maintenance free."
- Joe Bartnik, Director of Engineering, KSWO/ABC affiliate
"In a nutshell, we chose Adtec's Duet because of its performance, reliability and support. The Duet is performing flawlessly."
-Jim Baumann, CTO, Solo Nashville
"There are all kinds of automated commercial playback systems on the market, often they are expensive, unwieldy and not easily repaired. This is a piece of equipment that is flexible, reliable and user friendly. I can forget it's there. The picture is great, and the sound is great too! You just push a button and it plays. In the year and a half since we bought our Duet, it's always done its job, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year without a rest. In a broadcast television station, every commercial that runs has dollar signs attached to it. If it doesn't run, we don't get paid. It's as simple as that. So whatever you play your commercials back on is everything. The Duet we bought from Adtec is the machine that makes our money here. I call it our bread and butter machine."
- Bob Mottaz, Chief Engineer, NBC-Affiliate KIEM
"When you're buying professional television equipment, you look for the same things you do when you're buying a car--good quality, reasonable price, dependability, and as little maintenance as possible. We've run a lot of ads through our Adtec equipment since we bought it, and it has held up great. I think Adtec is the ideal choice for cable systems of our size that don't have the luxury of a large budget. And I'm really impressed with the personal relationship we've developed with the people at Adtec. I don't get treated like a number--I can pick up the phone and talk to somebody and get my questions answered. One of Adtec's competitors said: 'They have lightning in a bottle.' I couldn't have said it better myself!"
- Charles Dawson, Regional Sales Manager, Cable One Advertising
"And, as usual, your tech support has been the best. Thank you again for all of your help! I'd be more than happy to pass the word along about your fantastic inserters and customer support.”
-Robert Roe, Limestone Cablevision
"We've experienced the reliability of Adtec equipment for ad insertion, play-out and encoding services for over seven years. Adtec products are a great solution for our regional and local stations."
-Jan Stolte, Manager of Product Development, Cai Westland
