Paper Abstract

Siemens Atea n.v. developed a digital 600 Mbps network based on a counter-rotating optical ring. On this network a video subsystem has been developed, based on M-JPEG compression technology. Videostream switching has been integrated in the network. The resulting system can be used for video collection (surveillance) and for video distribution. This article describes some of the technical features of the system, and technology choices that have been made.
