A recent breakthrough in MPEG encoding by R.L. Drake allows MPEG-4/2 local encoding that allows operators to provide virtual channel numbering that is equivalent to their analog service. Drake has developed a low-cost PC-based solution to provide virtual channel mapping, EAS support and DTA code download support for Evolution Digital uDTAs. It's designed as a subscriber-friendly solution with channel numbering including a channel name.
