Turner will use Scientific-Atlanta 

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS) has selected a PowerVu MPEG-2/DVB digital
video compression system from Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. for delivery of
programming to its Latin American affiliates.

Plans call for Cartoon Network and TNT Latin America to be delivered digitally
to the southern hemisphere before the end of 1996.  TBS is making the transition
from Scientific-Atlanta B-MAC analogue technology to PowerVu digital video
compression for more economical use of its PAS 3 transponder capacity.

In addition to the PowerVu digital encoders, multiplexers, and satellite
receivers, TBS is also implementing the PowerVu Command Centre 2000. 

Turner Broadcasting's selection of PowerVu digital video compression for its
Latin America operation follows recent PowerVu installations by several major
broadcasters in Brazil and by the addition of a PowerVu digital video
compression system in Latin America by PanAmSat, completing the satellite
service provider's world-wide implementation of Scientific-Atlanta digital
