La Télé Selects *LINK Scalable Solution

Swiss broadcaster La Télé has chosen the AQORD *LINK video encoder/transcoder for streaming parliamentary sessions coverage.
This will be streamed from the Press Centre at the Federal Palace in Bern directly to the main La Télé studio in Lausanne, to the TeleTicino studio in Lugano, and soon to Canal 9 in Sierre.
AQORD *LINK system provide publicly funded regional broadcasters a cost-effective solution for the sessions fulfilling their obligations as members of the Telesuisse association.
"Digigram's AQORD *LINK gives our coverage excellent picture quality with no dropped frames, and it is very robust in its operation," said François Vittoz, technical head at La Télé, which selected and deployed the AQORD video encoder/transcoders. "The ease of use that the AQORD ensures through its predefined profiles, as well as its interoperability with equipment from other vendors, were key to our purchase decision. The company's technology provided exactly the solution we required, and Digigram was able to meet the very short project deadlines we had for setting up the infrastructure."
AQORD *LINK units installed at Bern and at the headends of each receiving broadcaster encode and decode live streams from the Swiss Parliament, and their built-in recording capacity allows for scheduling flexibility. Through this solution, La Télé, TeleTicino, and other regional broadcasters are able to use the direct feed from Bern to provide coverage to all parts of the country.
Digigram has optimized AQORD *LINK for content contribution of live events to the studio; contribution from studio to studio or studio to transmitter; or delivery to a content distribution network. Encompassing the functions of a broadcast-quality encoder, decoder, and transcoder, AQORD *LINK operates at video data rates from 0.5 to 20 Mb/s with input/output to IP stream, internal hard drive, and SDI. Three Gigabit Ethernet RTP-UDP/IP ports transmit and receive streams in either unicast or multicast, enabling flexibility for broadcasters, telcos, and contribution operators.
"It was important to deliver a solution for the Swiss Parliament that allowed for flexibility and easy scaling when more broadcasters require a feed from Bern," said Laurent Gros, product manager video for Digigram. "Despite a very accelerated timescale, we have been able to provide a tailored system built around AQORD *LINK that will allow transmission of parliamentary proceedings to any of the regional broadcasters as and when required."
