T-VIPS has announced that Mediapro, the Spanish media group, has selected T-VIPS’ TVG450 JPEG2000 Gateway for live HD contribution.
The TVG450s will be used to link 3 locations across Spain: GloboMedia; a production facility in Madrid, Mediapro in Barcelona and Mediapro in Madrid. The project marks the continuation of a partnership between T-VIPS and Mediapro that will enable La Sexta the Spanish TV channel to broadcast La Liga football and other HD Productions – live.
Mediapro provides video transport services to a wide range of customers and has been using T-VIPS’ Video Gateways for the contribution of high quality video between the FC Barcelona football stadium and Mediapro’s Master Control Room (MCR) for the last two years. This new project will be implemented in cooperation with T-VIPS’ Spanish business partner, Mome.
