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.
