VoIP used to backhaul Super Bowl XL in HD
Several IP video gateways supplied by Path 1 Network Technologies helped provide the live HDTV broadcast backhaul signals of ABC’s Super Bowl XL telecast in HD last night. This is the third year that Path 1’s technology was selected for delivery of the Super Bowl broadcast over an MPLS-enabled fiber optic network.
Leveraging the IP video gateway technology, Path 1 was able to deliver high-quality picture resolution and eliminate broadcast delays between cross-country destinations.
Path 1’s IP video gateways help overcome the technical challenges associated with delivering broadcast-quality video at SD, HD and uncompressed video speeds over public or private IP networks. Using an embedded processor platform and patent-pending algorithms, Path 1’s IP video gateways shield the video signals from severe network impairments, such as significant delay, jitter, packet loss, out-of-order packets and error recovery, to maintain a high quality video signal.
Path 1’s IP video gateways enable broadcast network operators to extend their reach in exchanging HD video content using widely available IP networks.
