T-VIPS, a provider of professional video contribution and distribution solutions, plans to launch the TVG425 Transport Stream Gateway at the NAB show in Las Vegas, the company says in a written statement.
T-VIPS’ TVG425, which is based on “new and advanced technology platform,” has been developed in answer to high-level customer demand, the company says. The TVG425 is the newest member of the T-VIPS Video Gateway suite of compact, powerful and cost-effective products that are designed for the real-time contribution and distribution of video over IP networks.
The TVG425 has been designed for applications including professional broadcast contribution, distribution and live event coverage, and T-VIPS says it would typically be deployed for:
- Contribution and distribution of MPEG-2 transport streams.
- Transport Stream interface adaptation (ASI, IP, SONET/SDH).
- IP-to-IP applications, such as multicast to unicast conversion and smallcasting, a critical feature for network operators who need to combine multicast and unicast IP connectivity.
- Redundancy – output diversity on ASI and IP, as well as automatic input switching between redundant Transport Stream sources.
“As IP becomes pervasive throughout the professional video world, it’s more important than ever to provide products like the TVG425 Transport Stream Gateway that combine IP and video expertise,” said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS.
“A major reason for the success of the T-VIPS Video Gateway line is that our design philosophy takes a video-centric approach to IP video transport,” Dolvik said. “As the industry moves increasingly to architectures based on islands of video expertise in a sea of IP, we find that customers increasingly need IP solutions, such as the TVG425, that are optimized for professional video transport,” he added.
The NAB show is scheduled to be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 11-14.
