Cable TV Bandwidth Expansion Technology Testing Has Begun

Compress Technologies, announces technology testing by independent test facilities, Eagle Comtronics, Inc. of Liverpool, New York. Compress Technologies believes this and subsequent tests will show it possible to add up to 100 additional Cable Television channels on many older Coaxial Cable television networks.

The technology appears to offer multi-million dollar savings from fiber replacement. It is no secret that cable television operators must find more bandwidth to compete against the local telephone companies. The cost to replace a cable operator's typical Coaxial network is in the multi-millions of dollars.

CTLG's revolutionary technology works through a combination of hardware and software upgrades to an existing Coaxial Cable network. CTLG believes it can reduce or eliminate the need for many costly fiber replacements allowing the cable operators to re-direct those funds to effectively compete in the marketplace.

The testing facility, Eagle Comtronics, Inc. has been since 1975 manufacturing electronic printed circuit board assemblies, RF assemblies and set the standard for filters in the cable television industry.

Eagle Comtronics, Inc. is currently evaluating the Compress Technologies Ultra Narrow band modulation product for verification of data carrying capability and its performance within a cable system. Eagle will also perform engineering services, taking the design from prototype to production ready product.

Compress Technologies, Inc., (CTI), is a Nevada based technology company with regional offices in the Tampa, Florida area and engineering laboratories in Miami, Florida. CTI has garnered a group of patented and protected core technology solutions utilizing both hardware and software applications designed to greatly improve the efficiencies of bandwidth and network topographies for the Cable TV, FM-SCA Radio, Satellite and Wireless Industries. Many of CTI's technologies, in short, claim that they "without loss of integrity shrink the size of digital packets to about 2% to 5% of their original size."
