T-VIPS’ TVG425 Facilitates Real-time Video Distribution

An IP-based metro and long-haul services provider has purchased T-VIPS TVG425 Transport Stream Gateways for real-time contribution and distribution of broadcast-quality, MPEG transport streams over its worldwide media and content delivery networks.

The Video Gateways will transport high-quality video for the company’s broadcast customers. Customers will range from those looking for global content delivery of a major live event over IP to enterprise video communications and wholesale customers. The TVG425 leverages the inherent flexibility of IP and Ethernet and provides output diversity and input switching capabilities.

T-VIPS’ TVG425 provides transparent handling of up to 8 independent MPEG Transport Streams (TS), and flexible interfacing with support for ASI, Ethernet, and SONET/SDH. Each stream may be sent to multiple destinations over an IP network. The Video Gateways provide real-time integrity monitoring of IP streams and the transport stream content, with graphical information about the various programs and their associated components. With its monitoring and switching capabilities, the TVG425 can provide redundancy protection for all its input streams.
