WinSonic Digital Cable Systems Network Holdings, Ltd.

WinSonic Digital Cable Systems Network (WDCSN) fosters worldwide voice, data, audio, and video transport by providing broadband connections to the existing Synchronous Optical Network / Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) carrier backbone. WDCSN SONET/SDH network also features switching technology, communications from WDCSN ATM-compliant transport applications and equipment can be directed to their destinations through control methods integrated with those used for telephony and data. Thus, the live video signal becomes simply one more data type within these networks, enabling WDCSN to provide cost-effective video transport across the globe.

End users in the education, entertainment, broadcast and production/post-production industries immediately benefit from being able to command compress and uncompressed data from anywhere near a backbone connection. Where the backbone connection is remote from the end-user, WinSonic transports analog and digital video signals to the backbone location or between local sites through dedicated fiber optic links.

In 1988-1990 Winston Johnson was a part of Video Flex a Bellcore R&D project with Regional Bell Companies Pacific Bell, Bell Atlantic, Bell South, Ameritech, NYNEX, Southwestern Bell, and AT&T.This project connected television networks in nine major U.S. cities, as a fiber optic alternative to interconnecting cities by satellite. As a result of this project Winston became a part of several Pacific Bell trials, experiments, and projects. One of the historical Pacific Bell projects was a special network was built to connect Industrial Lights and Magic in San Rafael, CA. to Steven Spielberg’s production Company Amblin Entertainment, on the Universal lot in Los Angeles. Spielberg used this solution to send computer generated dinosaurs for “Jurassic Park” back and forth between the two locations.

In addition, many high-quality corporate, educational, healthcare, government/military, and surveillance video applications also make use of both local fiber connectivity and remote SONET/SDH/ATM video network access enabled by WinSonic Digital Cable Systems Network and Winsonic Cloud, Ltd.

By approaching product design from the point of view of customer and carrier needs and requirements, WinSonic Digital Media Group, Ltd. has developed a range of solutions that fit seamlessly in both production facilities, cable carriers headend, and telephone central offices, enabling remotely-located facilities to operate as if they were in the same building. In fact, during the production of several blockbuster movies, WinSonic’s solutions have enabled users in various locations to edit film simultaneously in real time. Thus, WinSonic has created a trend and innovation to the way that motion pictures, television shows and other multimedia projects are completed. Moreover, since such processes provide tremendous savings in the budgets of film and television productions, WinSonic has created a prevailing demand for such services in the entertainment industry as well as other industries.

Technologies such as video and audio analog/digital conversion, program audio, intercom and data embedding, jitter management and elimination, SONET/SDH/ATM compliance, user-friendly equipment interfaces, and a highly developed software management control have made WinSonic solutions a popular choice for both carriers and end users throughout the world. In addition to transporting uncompressed digital video over 270 Mbps SMPTE 259/ITU-R 601/656 fiber network or 622 Mbps SONET OC-12c/SDH STM-4 ATM network, the network also reduces SMPTE 259M signals by using ITU J.80 “lossless” compression, permitting contribution-quality transmission over 140 Mbps E4 or 155 Mbps SONET OC-3c/SDH STM-1 network interfaces. While currently offering innovative products, using advanced transmission technologies such as Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing, WinSonic Digital Media Group, Ltd. will continue to develop leading-edge video transport solutions and systems, using high-speed SONET/SDH technology and MPEG/ATM protocol-based video multiplexing and transmission.

WinSonic is focused on providing new video transport technologies that meet the needs of the digital video age while giving current customers with future-proof, flexible, scalable solutions and world-class customer support. When a customer needs to deliver a high-quality video signal from here to anywhere, they can look to WinSonic for the video transport network solutions.
