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.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
