FloodGate FG-5400 "Hailstorm" MPEG Transcoder

...outstanding support our team received from VideoPropulsion

VideoPropulsion® Interactive Television (OTC:VPTV) is pleased to announce its high-density, low-cost FloodGate® transcoder solution has been deployed in a major sports venue in Cincinnati by technology integrator NOR-COM, Inc. based in Hebron, Kentucky.

The FloodGate FG-5000 series of transcoders are capable of transcoding from as little as 8 to as many as 168 HD channels. NOR-COM deployed the FG-5400 for a major league sports venue in order to convert 12 channels of DirecTV programming from H.264 to MPEG2 for delivery to older HDTV’s over the venue’s existing coax cable plant. The system is capable of expanding to provide support for additional channels. In addition, the system can support future applications designed to deliver programming to mobile devices by transcoding the incoming H.264 to various H.264 mobile formats.

“VideoPropulsion’s FloodGate has enabled us to quickly solve a problem for our customer and preserve one of their larger technology investments in older HDTVs”, said Barb Hollman, Account Manager, of NOR-COM. “We were delighted with the ease of deployment and appreciated the outstanding support our team received from VideoPropulsion during the installation process.”

Rather than replace over 600 older HD televisions that are only capable of decoding MPEG2, the solution enabled the stadium to solve the problem with just one piece of equipment – the FloodGate FG-5000 Transcoder.

“As major sports fans ourselves, we are pleased to help provide solutions that provide additional entertainment benefits to other fans located in a major sports venue”, said Carl Pick, Founder & CEO at VideoPropulsion. “NOR-COM is a trusted integrator in the industry and they are well-known for providing quality solutions and outstanding service to their customers. We look forward to working more with their team in the future”.
