Video Products Group announces JPEG2000 solution for HD video transport

Video Products Group (VPG), a provider of NEBS 3-compliant video transport equipment, is introducing a solution that will enable VPG clients to transmit high-quality HD-SDI signals over their existing 270Mb/s networks. The VS901 is VPG's initial offering in its GIGA-Ventura product line. The card installs in VPG's Ventura chassis and employs field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology.

Because of its compatibility with the Ventura product line, the VS901 offers NEBS-3 compliance and straightforward integration with existing VPG and third-party installations. It employs JPEG2000 to achieve subjectively lossless to near-mathematically lossless compression, translating HD-SDI input into SDTI for OC3/STM-1, OC12/STM-4 or 100/1000 Ethernet transmission. For efficient long-distance transport, output from the VS901 can feed VPG multiplexing equipment such as the Ventura VS411 or VS811, or the BRAVOnet VPG9000.

The VS901, and all future GIGA-Ventura products, will be compatible with VPG's VS183 ANMS network management system for Web browser and SNMP-based configuration and control.
