WFTV deploys T-VIPS video gateway for digital ENG backhaul

WFTV, the Cox-owned ABC affiliate in Orlando, FL, has begun using the T-VIPS TVG420 video gateway to transport MPEG-2 news footage from its transmitter site over a microwave link to its studio.

T-VIPS is providing the station with a backhaul solution for its primary digital electronic newsgathering (ENG) link over the station’s IP-based spread-spectrum microwave system, said WFTV director of engineering John Demshock.

Because WFTV encapsulates an ASI stream using the TVG420, it has an agnostic link between its truck-mounted encoders and studio decode system, he said; therefore, the station can take advantage of encoder advancements without concern for the backhaul, allowing the station to build an IP-based distribution system using an IP/ASI infrastructure, he added.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
