MVTP - Modular Video Transmission Platform

We have developed unique technology that allows network transmissions of high-quality video and audio signals with just a few milliseconds of added latency between end points.

The latency is small enough to allow musicians to play together across distance between cities and countries. At the same time, the quality of video is beyond current television broadcast standards and allows live multi-camera and multi-site television production.
