Designed for professional broadcast contribution, the TVG650 enables reliable transmission of sports, news and other live events via satellite or bandwidth-constrained IP links, without sacrificing image quality.
The TVG650 is part of T-VIPS’ Video Gateway line of compact, powerful and cost-effective products designed for real-time contribution and distribution of broadcast quality video signals.
The TVG650 MPEG-4 Contribution Encoder is a future-proof platform for MPEG-4 encoding, offering support for 10-bit and 4:2:2 coding, as well as future upgrade path to 3G/1080p 50/60 Hz. At the same time, the TVG650 includes support for MPEG-2 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 compression for SD and HD, ensuring full compatibility with existing contribution infrastructure.
The TVG650 is ideal for live contribution applications that require the highest possible video quality, but where the transmission link is bandwidth-constrained, as in satellite and low-bandwidth IP contribution. Using the TVG650 for high quality satellite contribution, typically 2-3 HD channels can be transmitted on a single DVB-S2 transponder. Content protection is ensured using DVB Scrambling (BISS 1/E). At the recieving end, the companion TVG610 MPEG-4 Contribution Decoder offers built-in DVB S/ S2 demodulation, redundant IP and ASI interfaces, content descrambling and SD/HD MPEG-4 10-bit 4:2:2 decoding.
