T-VIPS contributes to DVB-T2 rollout

Video technology company T-VIPS has deployed its DVB-T2 gateways and SFN switching system with transmission services provider Arqiva for distribution of UK digital-terrestrial platform Freeview.

The rollout, of the T-VIPS TNS541 TS monitoring switch and the CP560 DVB-T2 gateway, is set to be completed ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.

In order to preserve SFN operation and avoid DVB-T2 modulators losing synchronization, the deployment involves the use of two independent CP560 DVB-T2 gateways and a TNS541 TS monitoring switch. This prevents service outages caused by DVB-T2 modulator resynchronization, according to T-VIPS.

“I am delighted that we have been able to help Arqiva enhance the robustness and reliability of the delivery of Freeview HD in the UK,” said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. “Given the importance of this type of service, it’s crucial that every technology deployment runs as smoothly as possible. I’m pleased to say that T-VIPS has been involved with Arqiva right from the start and it’s great news that our intelligent seamlessly switched 1+1 redundancy solution is now enhancing Arqiva’s managed Freeview HD network.”
