Television Jamaica consolidates TV, radio service

Harris' NetVX provides high-speed IT-based connectivity for video and data distribution

Harris has installed its NetVX high-speed, integrated networking platform, and TRuepoint, the company’s next- generation microwave radio, at Television Jamaica (TVJ).

NetVX provides the broadcaster with high-speed IT-based connectivity for video and data distribution, while TRuepoint ensures reliable wireless communication links for voice and data transmission. The joint solution supports TVJ's central-casting model and allows for bidirectional networking to source and return regional feeds between the broadcaster's hub in Kingston and the various channels' transmitters that are dispersed around the island.

TVJ's terrestrial broadcast television stations cover 95 percent of the island of Jamaica. As TVJ transitions from analog to digital, NetVX and TRuepoint will integrate into the existing infrastructure to provide the station with a digital backbone. The joint solution enables centralized broadcast operations through one stream containing four channels — two radio and two television.
