Nowadays, in order to achieve a quality point-to-point video link, it is necessary to invest heavily in guaranteeing a high transmission bandwidth and a reliable transmission line. These conditions make the cost of these links unbearable for many broadcasters. Until now. The new Ikusnet2 ST video encoder enables high quality video bi-directional links over unreliable IP networks, attacking the […]

RAI, the Italian public broadcaster, has awarded Prodys a tender for the complete renovation of its IP audio codecs. RAI has placed great emphasis on the possibility of integrating these codecs into its AES67/Dante network, seeking to evolve its infrastructure towards this technology.
