Nevion’s Ventura, Flashlink and VikinX product lines interoperate to transport uncompressed or compressed HD or 3D video over any network – SONET/SDH, IP or fiber. Nevion’s video-over-IP solution suite is based on the award-winning and standards-compliant Ventura platform. The product range encompasses compression, transport, control and monitoring to provide peace of mind when delivering video over IP. The latest model of Ventura VS901 JPEG 2000 codecs offers unparalleled visual quality with higher compressed bit rates, while maintaining the lowest latency available on the market.
FlashCase is an award-winning durable, ultra-light frame for outdoor broadcast applications. It connects camera sites to production trucks or other facilities through a simple, lightweight optical fiber connection. Designed for maximum portability, resistance to the elements and versatility, it features five Flashlink ports, flexible back plane and fiber options, and full monitoring and control capabilities. The modular unit features low power consumption with no fans to clean or replace and convenient portability, weighing less than 11 pounds (about 5 kg) fully loaded.
Also on show will be optical networking solutions for video transport and, for service providers, the VS551-D-ADC-SFP universal analog and digital video fiber optic transmitter, which provides the ultimate flexibility in transport from sports venues by supporting every professional video format.
Nevion solutions are relied on to transport video from virtually every major sporting event including the Superbowl, the Olympics, NBA and NFL games, NCAA College Football, English Premier League soccer, Spain’s La Liga soccer and Wimbledon tennis. Nevion works with major sports broadcasters and the large telcos that provide them with video transport services.
