Fuji Television Network selects Media Global Links for routing solution

Media Global Links Co., Ltd. (MGL), a developer and
manufacturer of broadcast network infrastructure technologies, has been awarded
an order from Fuji Television Network, Inc., a Japanese broadcaster, and its
content producer, for a first of its kind video routing solution to be
installed at Fuji TV’s new network operations center in
Tokyo, Japan.
The new network operations center will make Fuji TV the world’s first
television station to deploy a fully IP-based internal and external video
routing solution.

The new network operations center will control all of Fuji TV’s signals, both
inside and outside the facility. All program content will be encapsulated into
IP packets to achieve a unified routing process. At the core of the system is
the world largest IP video router in a single chassis, Media Global Links’
MD10000. The system handles both conventional video streams and
advanced media files of many types, including the next generation MXF files
that are increasingly used in high-quality video production.

The MD10000 IP Video Router interconnects
TV headquarters, affiliates and studios using10Gbps (Giga bit per second)
circuits at a capacity of 3.2Tbps (Tera bit per second), which means that it
can switch up to 800 uncompressed HD video streams simultaneously. Owing
to Media Global Links’ original technology, the MD10000 provides 100%
guaranteed bandwidth, even for multicast applications, providing a highly
secure and reliable transport system to satisfy broadcasters’ stringent

Eiichi Hayashi, CEO and Founder of Media Global Links said, “We have combined
cutting-edge technologies from around the world to provide a system with
unmatched performance for Fuji TV. Through the use of IP technology and Perfect
Non-Blocking Switching, high volume uncompressed HD signals can be freely
exchanged in either a stream or file format among all the connected locations
without the loss of a single bit. This high quality and highly efficient system
will drastically enhance the productivity and flexibility for TV program
production, both today and well into the future.”

This technology will be demonstrated and discussed at NAB on booth # C3313.
