Caton Supplies IP Transport Solutions
for GC2018

Workflow diagram for sports event in Gold Coast

During April 2018, GC2018 welcomed more than 6,600 athletes and
team officials from 70 Commonwealth nations and territories...

N

EP Host Broadcast provided HD television
coverage from 18 venues along with the
opening and closing ceremonies.
NEP Host Broadcast was responsible
for the International Broadcast Centre
(IBC), which is the nexus of all GC2018
broadcasting activity, handling incoming
video and audio from the venues and
distributing it to broadcast rights-holders'
home countries. NEP also won the contract
to provide IBC and venue facilities for the
Australian Rights Holder, the Seven Network.
When NEP needed to provide a solution for
the Australian Rights Holder to transport
multiple live HD signals over IP connections
between various venues and the IBC, they
turned to Digistor and Caton for the solution.
Digistor MD Andrew Mooney said: "NEP
was looking for a technology solution to
transmit live camera signals from multiple
stadiums and sports fields to the International
Broadcast Centre (IBC) for production of the

Games' broadcast. The solution needed to
be robust, flexible, quick and easy to install.
We presented them with a variety of possible
solutions but the Caton option was the clear
winner."
NEP's requirements were to send 10 HDSDI videos, along with up to eight audio
channels from multiple remote venues, back
to the IBC whilst simultaneously sending HDSDI video and audio channels back from the
IBC to each of the remote locations.
Caton Vice President, Asia Pacific and
Japan, Gerald Wong, said: "We had a 100Mb
connection for each of these bi-directional
circuits to work with. The conversion to
digital video and transmission of HD high
constant bitrate video and audio streams
from the sport stadiums and sports fields
to the IBC is critical for the production of the
Games' broadcast. The transmission must
be in real-time without delay and in a video
format suitable for fast-moving sports action.

We also had the challenge of transmitting
over long distances on fibre and Internet
networks."
To meet NEP's strict requirements, Digistor
designed an efficient, high-performance
solution using Caton's Integrated Video
Processor (IVP) which is able to encode and
decode high bitrate and high frame rate HD
streams with very low latency. The Caton
Engine, powered by R2TP technology, also
ensured transmission would be successful
over any distance and even over challenging
networks. In total, Digistor supplied NEP with
20 Caton IVP-3000 video processors, each
one fitted with a 422 H.264 encoder and a

422 H.264 decoder as well as the required
SMIP Caton Engine module.
Wong added: "This particular solution
was chosen by NEP because the highperformance Caton Engine ensures the
quality and availability of the video stream
from the stadiums reaches the IBC in
real-time. The excellent monitoring tools
employed, willingness of Caton and Digistor
to support the project, and the ability to
easily scale the solution up for the Games
and scale down afterwards as required also
played a big part."
