Rai Way Italy relies on T-VIPS to ensure uninterrupted Digital TV Services

Oslo, Norway – T-VIPS, a global leader in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, today announced that its TNS541 Seamless TS Monitoring Switch has been chosen by Rai Way, the operator of Italy’s DTT network. The project is a continuation of the existing cooperation between T-VIPS and Rai Way which began in 2009 when Rai Way deployed T-VIPS’ solutions for its DVB-T digital terrestrial service. The TNS541s are currently being installed by T-VIPS’ business partner Communication Video Engineering (CVE). The project is scheduled to be fully live by the end of 2011.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with T-VIPS, helping to bring its cutting edge technology to the Italian broadcast industry so that terrestrial customers can enjoy an uninterrupted service,” said Luca Catalano, CEO, CVE. “T-VIPS has demonstrated its ability to provide solutions of unrivalled reliability including its TNS541 solution which is the only seamless switch to have been deployed for SFN network operation.”

The TNS541s are to be situated at all the transmitter sites which are being fed by MPEG Transport Streams over both satellite and by an Ethernet connection. The TNS541 seamless switch monitors both incoming MPEG-2 transport streams for status and based upon customer configurable criteria, switches over automatically if required. The solution enables seamless switching in an SFN region and can handle both DVB-T and DVB-T2 services.

“The choice by RAI of the TNS541 further cements T-VIPS’ reputation for leadership in DTT, building upon our experience of major Digital Switchover project deployments in the UK, Norway, Sweden and other countries across Europe,” said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. “I believe that our TNS541 will continue to be highly successful as rolling-out 1+1 redundancy greatly enhances the reliability of a DTT network. As well as protecting against poor performance in the distribution network, the seamless switch protects the modulators at the transmitter sites from major outages due to sync loss. I look forward to the TNS541 ensuring that Italian viewers get uninterrupted DTT services for many years to come.”
