NBC puts TANDBERG Television DSNG solutions to work in Athens

NBC's Joe Raznik, senior engineering manager of NBC Satellite Operations, stands at the helm of a TANDBERG Television E5745 Voyager DSNG system. The E5745 is delivering communications to one of NBC's satellite trucks for coverage from Athens of the Summer Olympic Games.

NBC News has deployed DSNG encoding and transmission solutions from TANDBERG Television as the backbone for connectivity between Athens, Greece, and its offices in New York City, Secaucus, NJ, and Charlotte, NC, for its coverage of the Athens 2004 Summer Olympic Games.

Forty E5745 Voyager DSNG systems have been employed to provide 15 bi-directional and 10 unidirectional paths that will carry audio, video and Ethernet traffic over four trans-Atlantic DS-3 fibers.

The network is using the E5745 as a total integrated solution for its connectivity. In addition to audio and video, NBC News is incorporating all of its phone, intercom and data traffic across the link that the integrated module provides.

The E5745 is a multiple-carrier system for data, audio and video communications. The system incorporates multiplexing from Vocality to support up to eight voice channels, telephone encryption, data encryption and an IP static router port. The compact 2RU package supports duplex satellite and DVB-ASI transmissions, with the ability to connect to ATM interfaces.
