NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., has purchased and received 16 Telestream ClipMail Pro digital video delivery systems.
The Telestream ClipMail Pro systems will be used to provide faster, more efficient transfer of broadcast-quality content over existing NASA data networks.
The purchase is the first in a two-part initiative to transition all NASA centers to a digital television (DTV) infrastructure. The Telestream systems will be used to replace mailing of videotapes between NASA centers with more timely and efficient digital exchange.
NASA's Marshall is the lead center for the space agency’s digital television implementation. Phase One of the two-part implementation provides for non-real-time video/audio exchange using the systems. NASA DTV program specialists expect to have the Telestream systems deployed to NASA centers across the country and operational by the end of October. Phase Two will provide for live content exchange. Completion of that phase is anticipated next summer.
The Telestream ClipMail Pro systems will be used to provide fast, efficient transfer of broadcast-quality content over existing NASA data networks. Typical content will include engineering and science video, human space flight activities and general documentation of NASA activities.
