Azzurro HD, a provider of broadcast-quality video transmission services, recently purchased T-VIPS’ TVG430 HD JPEG2000 Video Gateways to facilitate real-time HD-SDI video contribution over an IP network between Marist College, in Poughkeepsie, NY and Azzurro HD in NYC.

Video Gateways

are configured as an encoder and decoder on either end of the fiber circuit and enable Azzurro HD to transport live HD-SDI contribution video over IP fiber networks from Marist College to any television network. “This real time network connection makes it easier and more cost-effective for Marist pollsters [from the college’s Marist Institute for Public Opinion] to make live appearances on television and cable networks without having to travel two hours to New York City studios,” said Mark C. Lowden, Vice President of Sales for Azzurro HD, a division of The Azzurro Group. “They can go on-air directly from their campus studio facility”. “And by the same token, broadcast networks now find it more compelling and practical to invite Marist pollsters to contribute their insight and analysis because they don’t have to arrange for a TV studio to host the interviewee, and the video feed is always delivered in HD broadcast quality.” From its all-digital ASI, SDI, and HD video switching facility in “The Hub” at 32 Avenue of the Americas in New York City, Azzurro HD provides and manages real-time switching and transmission of broadcast-quality video via long-haul fiber and satellite circuits so that its customers can send feeds to any point domestically or globally. Azzurro HD services range from comprehensive, 24/7 networking solutions to real time transport of contribution video for customers with just an occasional need. T-VIPS’ TVG430’s were selected for this installation based upon Azzurro HD’s previous positive experience using JPEG2000 solutions in its managed network solutions. Lowden believes the way in which Marist College is transporting its video is a growing business area for Azzurro HD. “As we’re seeing an increased demand for video over IP transport services, we anticipate using T-VIPS Gateways again in future applications,” he concluded. TVG430 Gateways enable JPEG2000 compression of HD-SDI HDTV video contribution. The TVG430 utilizes JPEG2000 compression to transmit HDTV (and SD) signals over Gigabit Ethernet links in real-time at bitrates in the 50Mbps to 200Mbps range. The gateway can be configured as either an encoder or decoder.
