Video Products Group announces VS901 JPEG2000 solution
Video Products Group (VPG) has introduced the VS901, a JPEG-2000 compression solution that will transmit high-quality HD-SDI signals over existing 270Mb/s networks.
The VS901, the initial offering in VPG’s GIGA-Ventura product line, installs in VPG's Ventura chassis and employs advanced 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.
