BBC & NBC Olympic TV Coverage is Video Over IP In Action

All that Olympic TV coverage that you’ve been watching in HD quality with Dolby 5.1 surround sound made its way back to the UK / USA via IP networks:

In order to bring these signals back to the UK the BBC will employ more than 200Mb/s of fully redundant international fibre capacity, travelling multiples routes around the globe between Beijing and London. These digital links are supplied by the EBU and also provide voice and data communications between London and Beijing and include the 16 channels of video over IP streaming for the remote logging operation in London.
