Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – April 25, 2006 – A new network environment for 10-Gbps-class data transfer, which offers a preview of next generation ”all IP broadcasting stations,” will be showcased at The National Association of Broadcasters conference by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT).
According to the company, the presentation will feature video codecs and the i-Visto eXmedia server for the the industry’s fastest video transmission system. The i-Visto eXmedia server has a throughput of 15-Gbps of uncompressed HDTV video streams and will play a central role in the exhibit.
NTT is also announcing that the i-Visto network system will be made generally available in Q3, 2006.
The company will also demonstrate the first wireless transmission of multiplexed, uncompressed HD images using 120-GHz-band millimeter-wave wireless link that can transmit 10-Gbps data and will exhibit a HD-SDI bi-directional optical wavelength division multiplexed transmission system. NTT’s booth is located in South Hall, Lower Level, number SL2391.
NTT will showcase the i-Visto eXmedia server connecting multiple HD-cameras, video-editing systems, and monitors via an ultra high speed LAN (10 Gigabit ether network). All the steps in a video broadcast will be demonstrated, including capturing, editing, storing, and delivering video materials via IP networks.
The i-Visto eXmedia system is a PC-cluster based server coupled with a disk array and uses a low-delay interconnection network. The HDTV storage server’s processing capability can simultaneously store and deliver up to ten uncompressed HDTV video streams. NTT maintains that this performance is equivalent to about 100 VTR video streams and that no other video server is capable of matching the i-Visto’s performance at this time.
The i-Visto eXmedia server and i-Visto Gateway play a key role in the successful multiplexing of the uncompressed HDTV videos. The i-Visto Gateway integrates transmission, storage, and delivery of uncompressed HDTV video streams over an IP network. By combining the 120-GHz-band wireless link and the i-Visto Gateway, the wireless link system is capable of transmitting up to 6 channels of HD video material with zero latency.
Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation was established in 1952 as a state-owned telecommunications public corporation, and in 1985 converted to a private company, becoming the largest telecommunications company in Japan and the second largest in the world. NTT and its subsidiaries provide a wide range of telecommunications services.
NTT Laboratories researches and develops telecommunications services over optical fiber and IP-based networks.
