A1 Telekom Austria chooses T-VIPS for OB network

Contribution technology provider T-VIPS’ JPEG2000 video gateway, the TVG450, has been deployed by A1 Telekom Austria as part of its new fleet of outside broadcast vans.

A1 is using the TVG450 to provide video contribution services on behalf of public broadcaster ORF from venues throughout Austria. The primary use of the OB vans is to enable ORF to transport video from 150 points of presence across the country, over A1’s MPLS backbone, to ORF’s centralised production facilities.

This video contribution project is designed to integrate with A1’s fixed IP video transport network, which is also powered by T-VIPS’ JPEG2000 platform. 
“We are delighted with the flexibility, reliability and effectiveness of the IP-based OB Van solution operated by A1,” said Alexander Hetfleisch, project manager, planning department, ORF. “In close cooperation with A1, we designed a solution for live event coverage that ensures robust video transport, low latency, and efficient use of our video equipment resources.”
The system was delivered by T-VIPS in cooperation with our Austrian partner TV-Connect.

T-VIPS will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.B71
