Path 1 Network Technologies’ IP Video Gateways has been selected by French broadcaster TDF for its nationwide distribution network for digital terrestrial TV.
TDF provides digital TV distribution across the entire internet protocol (IP) network that originates in Paris and includes re-transmission sites and single frequency network (SFN) broadcast towers across France.
Path 1 said that it worked very closely with TDF to develop a highly flexible and reliable broadcast distribution solution based on Path 1 Vx8000e Video Gateways. The Video Gateways provide DVB-ASI MPEG-2 connectivity over IP, allowing TDF to leverage the cost effectiveness, ease of use, and flexibility of its IP network.
Path 1 Vx8000 products are already used by broadcasters worldwide for contribution and primary distribution applications. The addition of this important customer extends our footprint to include the complex SFN transmission networks being deployed in Europe, stated Tom Tullie, CEO of Path 1.
