Televisa Selects Thomson Video Networks

News Image
Televisa has selected Thomson Video Networks' playout solution to drive, via satellite, a server-to-server file transfer of video contribution feeds from Televisa Internacional (SSTI). Thomson Video Networks' MPEG stream server works in concert with FTP-over-satellite equipment from KenCast to extend the reach of the SSTI MPEG video file delivery system to remote stations.

"Thomson Video Networks is a highly valued partner, and we chose their technology for a satellite-based server-to-server file transfer solution for TV stations," said William Aguirre Ballesteros, general director of satellite operations at Televisa. "With the latest version, we're leveraging the versatility and reliability of Thomson Video Networks' MPEG video server and the performance of the KenCast file delivery solution to provide contribution feeds to the stations."

Thomson Video Networks' MPEG stream server is a channel-in-a-box solution that provides the functions needed to ingest, process, brand, and play out digital SD and HDTV channels over ASI or IP networks. This includes advanced capture, playout, and regionalisation capabilities, as well as frame-accurate operation with MPEG-2 and H.264 compressed content. For the newest version of SSTI, Thomson's video servers are installed at remote Televisa receive sites and work in conjunction with the KenCast solution to facilitate MPEG file delivery and playout.

"When it was first launched in 2003, SSTI was a bold and groundbreaking approach to file distribution and playout – and Televisa has continued to improve the system's efficiency and capacity over the past decade," said Mark Renfroe, vice president and managing director, Americas, Thomson Video Networks. "The latest generation of SSTI is a showcase in advanced file distribution and playout technologies, including innovations such as KenCast's patented FEC, a brand-new, state-of-the-art IP-over-satellite link, and our unique frame-accurate MPEG playout capabilities. Through our ongoing partnership, we've been privileged to help Televisa continue to advance the state of the art in broadcast-ready video file delivery solutions that are equally at home in remote TV stations and central production facilities."
