TrueVisions recently announced the deployment of Nevion (News - Alert)'s live media transport solutions suite, which provides support to its wide range of high-definition offerings.
TrueVisions is a cable and satellite television operator in Thailand and Nevion is a specialist in transporting media from the camera to the home.
The combined live media solution includes an integration of Nevion Flashlink DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) multiplexers and Nevion VikinX routers. Flashlink multiplexer provides fiber connectivity, CWDM/DWDM point to point links, nationwide optical links, and signal processing solutions such as format conversion, frame synchronizers, embedders, de-embedders, couplers, up/down/cross-converters, optical and distribution amplifiers, to the TrueVisions' offsite backup recovery location.
Vichai Sernvongsat, chief technology officer at TrueVisions said, "Nevion's products have always been reliable and cost effective. We worked with Strong Brothers to achieve the highest possible uptime, and Nevion solutions once again provided the best quality and value."
Nevion's VikinX, an expendable 3G high definition 256x256 router, provides live broadcast and complete signal flow at the TrueVision's Disaster Recovery site, for both the main as well as the backup paths. The VikinX router supports all professional broadcast signals including, 3G, HD, SD-SDI, DVB-ASI, AES, Analog Video, Analog Audio, and RS-422 machine control.
Some of the key benefits of the combined solution include reduced transmission downtime, reliability, elimination of fan maintenance, compact form, conservation of resources, easy to install, a variety of control panels and software applications allow users to enjoy a flexible and cost effective way to control their routers, low heat dissipation, and ultra-low power consumption to broadcast environments.
Nevion currently manages different network types as its product suite brings intelligence, automation and built-in security, thereby enabling clients to monetize content, save resources, and open opportunities to new revenue streams.
Hans Hasselbach, senior vice president, Asia Pacific sales at Nevion said, "We're extremely proud of our relationships with Strong Brothers and TrueVisions. They are innovators in the region and TrueVisions' evolving infrastructure is a testament to their commitment to the highest quality live media services."
