Court TV relies on Telecast Fiber Ethernet Viper
Court TV is using the Telecast Ethernet Viper portable fiber-optics broadcast production system for digital video transmission of court proceedings.
Court TV has used the Viper system for live on-site coverage of numerous civil and criminal trials, including recent high-profile cases such as last month's O.J. Simpson pre-trial hearings in Las Vegas and the Duke University lacrosse case.
Both of Court TV's satellite newsgathering (SNG) trucks are equipped with Telecast Viper systems with Ethernet support, giving remote production crews the ability to create fiber networks on the fly that can adapt to the variations in equipment, networking configurations and physical layout found in different courtrooms.
Over a single cable, Court TV can transport numerous feeds from inside the courtroom, including cameras, audio and A/V equipment, such as projectors, out to the SNG vehicle for transmission.
