GigaContent and Nevion to Build Contribution Network for Denmark's TV2
Network allows transport of content between TV2’s nationwide studios
COPENHAGAN —GigaContent and Nevion have been commissioned by broadcaster TV2 to build a new national contribution network within Denmark to replace its existing proprietary infrastructure. Due for completion in early December 2013, the network will link TV2’s main studios, as well as connecting its eight regional bases located throughout the country.
The new contribution network will be used for all television content within Denmark, including sports, and will run over the Global Connect backbone with four uncompressed HD over 10 GB IP pipes for TV2’s main studios, and JPEG2000 over Gigabit Ethernet for the regions. Quality-of-service will be secured by a redundant (dual) path with packet switching. Nevion will also provide the switching and signal processing in the Exchange Centre in Copenhagen between the uncompressed services and the JPEG 2000 compressed services for TV2’s regional offices.
Nevion's VideoIPath connection manager will be used to manage the monitoring of the network and services in GigaContent’s network operations center and all TV2’s facilities, ensuring SLA targets are met and the quality of experience for viewers is ensured. The self-service commissioning of contribution connections will run on GigaContent’s GigaBooking online booking platform.
