Tandberg unveils next generation digital media solutions for IPTV market

MUMBAI: Visual communications major Tandberg Television has announced that it will showcase its end-to-end compression, on-demand and interactive solutions for IPTV at TelecomNEXT 2006.

With this initiative, Tandberg seeks to drive the next generation of technologies that are making IPTV a reality for network operators. The combination of Tandberg Television's compression technology with on-demand packaging, encoding and interactivity, is leading the industry into the next generation of IPTV, a company statement asserts.

Also, Tandberg Television will showcase its advanced encoding platforms that manage bandwidth, deliver broadcast quality video over IP networks, and ensure quality of service. Tandberg Television claims to be the only company that can offer complete compression technology for SMPTE VC-1 and MPEG-4 AVC in broadcast quality for both standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) formats.

In addition, Tandberg Television will demonstrate how IPTV networks may be made more reliable and improve a service operator's quality of service, with FEC (Forward Error Correction) that virtually guarantees the reliable reception of the data stream over an IP network and an auto redundancy control system solution that includes RIP (Routing Information Protocol), which reroutes programming to an alternative network path so service delivery disruptions are minimized.

Tandberg Television will also be showcasing its solutions for multiple resolution and picture-in-picture (PiP), enabling technology for advanced video mosaics and next evolution video programming guides. By leveraging its middleware partnerships, Tandberg Television will show how real-time video plus PiP creates a complete user experience.

Tandberg Television will also be showing for the first time its Xport technology designed for an IPTV network. Xport is a content creation and packaging tool for MPEG-4 AVC video-on-demand.

For added scalability and open architecture, Tandberg Television will be showcasing its open back office on-demand system OpenStream Digital Services Platform. It brings scalability and open architecture to IPTV and is widely deployed worldwide. By choosing an open architecture, IPTV operators are able to set up new interactive features easily and quickly, and are not locked into proprietary hardware. OpenStream technology is extremely scalable and component-based, so the technology can gradually grow with the operator as it expands its footprint.

Also being demonstrated is Tandberg Television's asset management system, MediaPoint AMS, which manages the flow of content for on-demand systems.
