While being hitless isn’t a path to success for baseball batters (or aspiring rock stars), hitless signals are another thing entirely. Smooth, uninterrupted video and audio streams provide the best possible viewing and listening experiences. Live television broadcasts are very demanding environments for signal transmission and broadcasters have long been interested in technologies that can reduce or eliminate the number and intensity of signal disruptions.
Artel Video Systems is pleased to announce that the company has entered into a partnership with RAVENNA®. The ARG Quarra aligns perfectly with RAVENNA’s network requirements and supports customers’ demands for flexibility of standard IT networks on the transport layer. Its embedded PTP support provides the fundamental basis for utmost timing precision, which translates into superior media clock regeneration at the RAVENNA end nodes.
Artel Video Systems publishes white paper, ‘Broadcasters Can’t Miss With Hitless Technology’ detailing technology's abilility to overcome signal degration during short and long term outages. The paper describes seamless protection switching and its ability to provide long-term error correction in a live-television environment.
