HaiVision Systems Inc. (Montreal, Canada) announces today that its distribution partner in Uruguay, Telefax SA based in Montevideo, has provided its client, ANTEL, Uruguay's principal telecommunications company, with HaiVision's TASMAN H.264 MPEG-4 AVC encoder decoder systems. ANTEL is using HaiVision's systems to transmit contribution video from remote sites to its central broadcasting facilities. One of the first uses of this new system was the live broadcast of a meeting between Uruguay's President Vázquez and US President George W. Bush in early March.

Telefax selected the TASMAN because of its ability, using MPEG-4 AVC compression (as well referred to as H.264) to deliver excellent quality video over networks using significantly less bandwidth than traditionally required by MPEG-2.

"In Uruguay the simplest connection to facilities is E1, supporting approximately 2 Mbps," states Mr. Sergio Cabrera, Telefax's Project Manager for ANTEL. "The TASMAN uses HaiVision's extremely efficient implementation of MPEG-4 AVC and delivers top quality video within this constraint."

"HaiVision is excited about the system that Telefax has commissioned for ANTEL," expresses Peter Maag, HaiVision's Vice President. "Our TASMAN is proving itself in many segments as MPEG-4 AVC H.264 is being adopted throughout the world. Broadcasters everywhere are looking for alternatives to traditional backhaul systems to reduce their costs. The TASMAN allows them to do this, and due to its inherent low latency and bi-directional nature, allows them to install systems that accommodate bi-directional video accommodating remote communication, interviews, and other forms of collaborative contribution."
