May 19, 2014


Two of the largest college sports networks in the United States have recently deployed TVG450, a multiple JPEG 2000 gateway solutions from Nevion (News - Alert), to carry broadcast-quality television signals over contribution networks.

The TVG450 represents the next generation solution for transport of broadcast quality television signals over IP networks. JPEG 2000 compression technology enables transport of SD, HDTV, Stereoscopic 3D HDTV and 3 Gbit/s HDTV over Gigabit Ethernet links.

Nevion’s TVG450 JPEG 2000 gateway has been installed by both college sports networks to deliver the highest quality video over cost-efficient IP links, both existing and ad-hoc connections. This installation promises to decrease the bandwidth consumption due to compression.

TVG450 enables service providers to utilize visually lossless, multi-generation resilient JPEG 2000 compression, and IP/Ethernet technology, to build cost effective managed video services on top of IP-MPLS, Metro Ethernet or SDH/SONET transport networks.

Also, TVG450 JPEG 2000 gateway helps the networks gain flexibility of connection management through Connect, VideoIPath , or any third-party network management system. Nevion Video Gateways can be configured via an easy-to-use web interface, which also offers extensive built-in monitoring.

“In addition to delivering the quality and efficiencies of IP transport, in customer testing the TVG450 consistently outperformed comparable solutions in terms of visual quality, reliability and overall performance, all critical criteria for these major college sporting events, ” said Mike Root, VP of Sales, Americas at Nevion.

Mike Root said that the solution is extremely versatile, has low-power requirements and offers multi -channel JPEG 2000 compression for SD and HD media to ensure delivery of professional-quality content without limitations.

Nevion has been delivering media transport and broadcast infrastructure solutions that help its customers create the dynamic and flexible infrastructure they need. Increasingly, these solutions are based on ubiquitous IP technology.

Some of the world’s largest media and broadcast networks are built on Nevion technologies - including AT&T, Arqiva, BBC, BT (News - Alert), CCTV, EBU, TDF, Telefonica, Telenor and NASA.
