Japanese broadcast service provider JDS has selected Media Links’ MD8000 transport solution and ProMD EMS Enhanced Management Software for its IP-based video distribution platform.
JDS, which serves cable TV stations throughout Japan using a terrestrial fibre optic network, will use Media Links' MD8000 media over IP solutions for the transport backbone of its 100Gbps transmission system.
Media Links’ ProMD EMS Enhanced Management Software will also be used to operate and manage the transmission system, which can transmit multiple uncompressed HD-SDI video signals with full redundancy.
JDS is currently testing the system, with full-scale operation scheduled earmarked for next March.
Media Links has also provided solutions and services for global large-scale sports events such as the Winter and Summer Games and the World Cup in Russia.
