CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA -- Integrated Photonics Technology (IPITEK), a leading designer, developer, manufacturer and supplier of Video-Optimized Intelligent Broadband Networks, today announced a series of customer successes with its Internet Media Transport (IMTRAN®) business unit. IPITEK’s IMTRAN products have helped customers worldwide, including MSOs, municipalities, Telcos, educational institutions, and utilities, to increase productivity and employee cooperation while effectively reducing operating costs. Cost-effective transport of live analog TV signals into Headends for forwarding to customer homes; video service transport between local and long haul facilities; and carriage of surveillance video signals for a variety of security and remote monitoring purposes are among the many successful applications IMTRAN products have been utilized for.

IPITEK’s IMTRAN Division produces video-centric products that judiciously select bandwidth and maximize video quality for cost effective transport and media access for its customers. The IMTRAN Business unit is a highly focused, advanced engineering and application group that works with customers to embrace the video revolution by offering products and services that enable connection for the multiple services carried over today’s broadband networks. In addition to providing cable and telecommunications companies a highly efficient and effective means of managing the dramatically increasing amount of video traffic in the consumer space, IMTRAN products assist with new applications for business, including: technical collaboration between geographically separated manufacturing and engineering sites; employee training sessions; teleconferencing; internal communications; and dynamic signage

Some examples of clients using IMTRAN products are as follows:

  • Several major cable companies have used IMTRAN products to digitize and transport TV channels within their distribution systems to neighboring cities in their service areas. To deliver them in a cable-friendly signal format allows simple, low cost remultiplexing for these channels as they can be inserted anywhere downstream of the operator’s Headend, avoiding signal degradation and maintaining a high signal quality.
  • A major US Telco Carrier ordered a new Carrier class platform from IMTRAN to fulfill a video circuit contract for carriage of signals between a new facility and the long-distance carriers facility in a major metropolitan city in the Southeastern United States. This new facility will soon be the new home of a nationally-distributed sports network. The same Telco carrier has long chosen IPITEK for all their video service transport needs, which include racing, public events, pro football circuits to the long-haul carrier from the stadium as well as local broadcaster news and sports feeds from the venues via their mobile vans over fiber to their studios. The city also runs off-site news production and traffic watch around the clock through use of the state-owned traffic cameras and permanent video links from the camera switcher to broadcasters and their main and remote studios.
  • One of the world’s largest base metals mines, operating in extremely harsh environments in Latin America, has long used IMTRAN products for surveillance in its massive underground mining and above-ground processing and control stations. The mine even uses the video from the drilling machines to remotely control its digging machines from the safety of the surface of the mine. Mine officials watch TV screens from special console chairs which have levers and joysticks attached to remote-control the digging machines, choosing broadcast-quality transmission for the detail and recordability. The mine requires the added low latency the IMTRAN technology gives them which IP video cannot.
