NHK Relies On Thomson Video Networks ViBE VS7000 Multi-Screen Video Platform

Thomson Video Networks have announced that NHK, Japan's national public broadcasting organization, relied on Thomson Video Networks' ViBE™ VS7000 multi-screen video platform for its online coverage of the 2012 London Games.
With the industry's most robust feature set for live and file-based IP video, the ViBE VS7000 played an integral role in NHK's ability to offer on-demand event footage on its website. NHK used the ViBE VS7000 system to receive 40 incoming live video streams coming from London over IP, and transcode and packetize them into HLS format. The produced HLS components were saved onto a dedicated server using WebDAV, which enabled NHK editors to refine and publish the content as video on demand on the NHK website. More than 35,000 VOD clips were produced with this system, and statistics on the use of the service showed that content was accessed by more than four million viewers.
Allowing live and file applications to run concurrently on a single system, the ViBE VS7000 provides high operational convenience through a common, intuitive graphical interface. Combining functionality that would otherwise require parallel infrastructures for file-based and live encoding, the ViBE VS7000 video system integrates easily with external platforms through a common built-in SOAP/Web services interface. Its built-in video operating system, which provides native load balancing and redundancy/fail-over, as well as the unit's compact, high-density packaging, makes the ViBE VS7000 a cost-effective item in both capital and operational budgets.
"Not only was the ViBE VS7000 compact and easy to install, but the single GUI makes the system very easy to administer and publish content from multiple server locations," said NHK's Cross-Media project manager. "The ViBE VS7000 was a critical element in our content delivery workflow for the London Games, enabling us to deliver high-quality and exciting online content in a timely manner."
