Nevion to share media transport vision at VidTrans

OXNARD, Calif., February 22, 2013 – Experts from Nevion will be speaking about next-generation managed media transport at VidTrans13, one of the first industry events for the new company since the merger between media transport pioneers Nevion and T-VIPS was completed. Nevion will also showcase its latest media transport solutions at the event which takes place on February 26-28 in Los Angeles.

At 10.30am on Tuesday February 13, senior solutions architect Helge Stephansen will speak about packet loss in real-world IP, providing insight into how the SMPTE 2022-1 forward error correction (FEC) matrix works in real-word circumstances. With broadcasters increasingly using IP, packet loss is a growing concern, particularly when using leased lines where it can lead to video artifacts or even signal loss. Stephansen will discuss the consequences of buffer overflow in IP routers/switchers, and whether IP diversity can prevent video loss.

In his role as co-chair of the Video Services Forum’s JPEG 2000 Group, Nevion product manager Inge Hillestad will give a joint presentation on the group’s progress in JPEG 2000 standardization at 10.30am on Wednesday February 27. The group’s initial goal is to liaise with DVB and EBU to develop a technical recommendation to define interoperable profiles for real-time streaming of JPEG 2000 Broadcast Profile video over MPEG2-TS.

Nevion will demonstrate its latest innovations in IP media transport, monitoring, video routing, optical transport, signal processing and distribution. “We’ll be showcasing a full range of integrated solutions for professional media transport over IP and optical networks,” said Eugene Keane, CTO, Nevion. “Whether upgrading legacy infrastructure or building entirely new media networks, Nevion solutions enable broadcasters and service providers to monetize content, save resources and open up new revenue streams.”

Nevion will demonstrate IP media transport innovations including the TVG425 transport stream gateway for compressed video over IP, the VS904 MPEG-2, H.264, AVC-Intra encoder/decoder over ASI and IP, the VS901 for JPEG 2000 compression over IP or ASI, the VS909 IP media edge processor, and the VS902 multi-format contribution codec.

Nevion will also showcase monitoring solutions including the TNS460 HS/SD-SDI monitor and the FCS1000-PLUS for IP, ASI and SDI transport streams; VikinX Sublime video routing switchers; and a complete range of Flashlink solutions for optical transport, signal processing and distribution.
