OSLO, Norway -- T-VIPS, a global leader in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, today announced that its advanced JPEG2000 Video Gateway, the TVG450, has been deployed by A1 Telekom Austria AG in their new fleet of OB Vans (outside broadcast) . This innovative contribution solution is already deployed and is providing video contribution services on behalf of ORF from venues throughout Austria. The primary use of these OB Vans is to enable ORF, the state broadcaster, to transport high quality, JPEG2000 video, from 150 points of presence across Austria, over A1’s MPLS backbone, to ORF’s centralized production facilities. This video contribution project is designed to neatly integrate with A1’s fixed IP video transport network, which is also powered by T-VIPS’ JPEG2000 solutions. This combination of OB Vans linked via IP to ORF’s central editing studios means greater flexibility, easy access to editing and production skills and reduced costs.

“We are delighted with the flexibility, reliability and effectiveness of the IP-based OB Van solution operated by A1,” said DI Alexander Hetfleisch, Project Manager, Planning Dept., 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.”
