Finally, she tells you that the station must maintain the highest-quality broadcast standards to grow its market against stiff competition.

You also know that the station’s camera team is soon to cover an important political debate taking place in a remote location, known for the slow performance of the local Internet.

The Solution

Digigram AQORD *LINK and AQILIM *SERV/FIT Video-over-IP Contribution, IPTV and OTT Solutions

These integrated solutions provide your station with everything you need to leverage the outstanding benefits of VoIP. The easy-to-deploy, 2 channel AQORD *LINK encodes and compresses Live video content and audio feeds received from professional video cameras in the field, for full duplex transmission back to studio. As an ultra-low latency solution, IQOYA *LINK fully utilizes all available Internet bandwidth for the delivery of reliable, robust high quality video and audio signals.

Once back at studio, the signal is decompressed and decoded by another in-studio AQORD *LINK for Live production. To meet IPTV distribution requirements, AQORD *LINK re-compresses and encodes the signal for distribution to consumers’ set top boxes and other IPTV distribution technologies.

To transmit WebTV contents over smartphones, laptops, PCs and other OTT devices, the station has also deployed AQILIM *SERV/FIT. Using embedded adaptive bit rate technologies, AQILIM *SERV/FIT delivers appropriate bandwidth streams to ensure high-quality, reliable content delivery to any device.

With Digigram Video-over-IP solutions, the CTO has increased the station’s digital footprint at a price that fits well within his manager’s budget.
