Oslo, Norway – T-VIPS, a global leader in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, today announces that NAB 2011 will see new functionality and products launched across its product ranges: video transport; monitoring & switching; and transport stream processing & remultiplexing. The company’s on-booth demonstrations will show how the company is enabling broadcasters and operators to save time, money and resources by increasing operational efficiency and reliability, reducing the requirement for capital investment and through simplifying workflows. The new product introductions at NAB will include the CP546 Transport Steam Monitor, a powerful tool for the continuous monitoring of transport streams, services, PID’s and PSI/SI/PSIP tables, ensuring fast fault detection and diagnostics.
The T-VIPS NAB booth will have a number of pods dedicated to individual segments, including:
· JPEG2000 video contribution
· 3D contribution
· Managing video transport
· Monitoring and switching
· Digital Film – Remote reviews and approvals
· Terrestrial Broadcasting – End to end redundancy
“Workflows will be a major focus at NAB this year, as customers are increasingly looking to take advantage of the high-level of cost-savings that can be achieved through deploying new simplified and more efficient workflows,” says Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. “I look forward to our NAB demoes showing operators and broadcasters how our solutions utilize key technologies such as IP, advanced error correction and FEC, JPEG2000 and intelligent switching and remultiplexing to simplify the management and control of broadcast workflows.”
CP546 Transport Stream Monitor
The CP546 is part of the T-VIPS’ cProcessor suite; a line of compact, powerful and cost-effective products designed for processing and monitoring of MPEG-2 transport streams. This monitoring functionality is increasingly important in today’s complex broadcast architectures. Error detection and alarms are based on ETSI TR 101 290 for DVB signals and ATSC A/78 for ATSC DTV signals, with the alarms provided through an easy-to-use web user interface as well as through SNMP.
In addition to its monitoring capabilities, the CP546 also allows in-depth analysis of signal, services, components as well as PSI, SI and PSIP table decoding. Combined, these features enable the fast diagnosis of erroneous signals.
The CP546 provides remote supervision and monitoring of up to 8 DVB-ASI or SMPTE-310 transport streams, and up to 16 IP/Ethernet transport streams. In addition, the CP546 is fully configurable and may be set up to detect and initiate alarms as required by the network operator.
