OSLO, Norway -- T-VIPS AS, a Norwegian technology company that designs, builds and supplies world-leading solutions for contribution & distribution of broadcast quality video signals over IP networks, today announced that IBC 2006 will play host to live demonstration of the T-VIPS TVG430 HD-SDI to IP Video Gateway. In addition, T-VIPS will also launch the TVG415 an SD (Standard Definition) version of the TVG430 and IBC2006 will also see the first public demonstration of the newly launched T-VIPS cProcessor family of products, designed for the efficient adaptation of MPEG-2 transport streams and primarily targeted at the DVB-T market.

The European launch of the TVG430 enables the transmission of HDTV over IP networks using a JPEG2000 codec to enable HDTV signals to be transmitted over Gigabit Ethernet links. T-VIPS is also launching the TVG415, an SD version of the TVG430. The advantages of JPEG2000 compared to other compression standards include; low latency, high video quality and high error resiliency. Both the TVG430 and TVG415 are part of the T-VIPS Video Gateway suite; a line of compact, powerful and cost-effective products designed for real-time contribution & distribution of broadcast quality video over IP networks.

The T-VIPS launch of the TVG430 complements the existing T-VIPS range and makes IP contribution & distribution an economic reality for HD as well as for SD. With this launch, T-VIPS has an IP backhaul solution for all broadcasters’ requirements, from ASI through un-compressed SD to HD, all the while maximising picture quality by deploying cutting-edge technologies such as PRO-MPEG forward error correction and the JPEG2000 compression standard.

“This is an ideal time for the European launch of our JPEG2000 products,” says T-VIPS' CEO Johnny Dolvik. “We founded T-VIPS to provide powerful and flexible IP video transport solutions that mean that the ubiquity and affordability of gigabit Ethernet can now be used for video contribution & distribution. The TVG415 and TVG430 fit perfectly into this vision by ensuring that the IP transport over Gigabit Ethernet is now an economic reality for SD and HD contribution & distribution. We believe that the low latency, less than three frames for the coding and decoding, will be highly appreciated by many broadcasters.”
