The SMG installation includes ViBE encoders, NetProcessor 9030 multiplexers, and the Thomson XMS management system, with conditional access management integration. The SMG installation distributes video in MPEG-2 with statistical multiplexing.

The vendor's compression and Flextream statistical multiplexing technologies are designed to give network operators increased bandwidth for interactive services, EPGs, or VOD. The NetProcessor family of multiplexers includes automated workflows for inserting both local and national commercials into a compressed program stream.

SMG created a new platform based around the Thomson technology, as part of the media group's aggressive push for audience share in domestic and international Chinese markets.
