|Adelphia is maximizing its bandwidth for HDTV by using the DM 6400 to deliver three HD programs in a single channel instead of the two HD programs a channel can typically support when operating at 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation). The DM 6400 accomplishes this by rate shaping, the real-time adjustment of a digital video program's bit rates. Rate shaping enables Adelphia to deliver more HD programming with less bandwidth while maintaining "picture perfect" picture quality.|

I'll be doing some "rate shaping" when I send in my next bill. I'll pay my overpriced $50 cable modem bill with $40 and see if they can tell a difference.
