We recently announced our collaboration with Sports Logic in the US aimed at providing cutting-edge video transport solutions to the American sports production and broadcasting sector.
Sports Logic represents manufacturers of high tech broadcast equipment and services designed for the capture, processing, transmission and display of live and ‘live to tape’ sporting events. Sports Logic will focus on specific products and services that are best suited for the unique demands of the sports production environment.
T-VIPS has enjoyed particular success in sports video transport with its JPEG2000-based video gateways. Our JPEG2000 solutions provide many advantages over MPEG-based solutions, including higher 10-bit video quality, low latency, and outstanding error resiliency characteristics
Because sports coverage contains high-speed motion with rapid scene shifts and lots of camera movement, it represents the maximum challenge for compression schemes. In addition, the high value of sports content means it is more important than ever that the television signal is enjoyed by the consumer at the highest quality and with the minimum delay. Furthermore, sports content is often broadcast on a large number of channels in many geographical regions as well as over mobile TV networks and streamed over the Internet, which requires a source signal that is suitable for editing, format conversion and transcoding.
Sports Logic brings the experience and focus which is needed in a market which requires specialized attention. Our JPEG2000-based video gateways are tried and tested and already widely used to transport some of the world’s most valuable sports content.
