Pune based Traxvision India, provider of complete range of low end to high-end professional MPEG products and solutions, has tied up with US-based Minerva Networks Inc, for the distri-bution of its products in India.

Traxvision has been appoin-ted as the channel partner for the entire range of Minerva products. These include the Minerva VNP–an MPEG enco-der/decoder that is optimized for video distribution over IP networks, which according to Traxvision India director Sunil Khanna, was its flagship pro-duct accounting for 90 percent of the total sales. The other products that are distributed include the Minerva Media-Gateway–a system designed to efficiently demultiplex DVB-ASI signals and distribute individual programs over bro-adband IP networks. 

The Minerva VideoConcen-trator 8000 (VC8000) is a carrier class platform that combines MPEG encoding and satellite based video content processing into a single high-density mod-ular chassis. The Minerva IP Tel-evision Lab is a complete end-to-end IP television headend that allows network operators to evaluate interactive televi-sion services prior to full

com-mercial deployment.


Explaining the rationale behind the company’s move, Khanna said that the tie-up was a result of the sudden demand in the streaming requirements in India over the past year.

Traxvision also has tie-ups with Abtec for its encoders and with Vela Research for its PC-based solutions. Khanna said that the company has charted a roadmap that ensures a pre-sence in such specialized products.
