ARG Quarra interoperability demonstrated16 September 2017
Interoperability between Artel’s InfinityLink and DigiLink platforms and ARG’s Quarra and ARQ IP solutions is being demonstrated on the Artel stand.
On display is the ARG Quarra 10000 10Gbps Ethernet PTP Switch, actively routing video, audio and data through Artel’s network. The ARG Quarra supports the SMPTE 2110-10 proposed standard for system timing and definition, as well as 2059-2, permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment.
Featured in Artel’s live network is ARG’s 8000 ARQ IP streaming device, providing what Artel describes as a simple-to-configure solution for the distribution of high-quality video over unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, internet and satellite.
As it is scalable in single stream increments, the company said that broadcasters can quickly add additional ARQ licences to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services.
Also on show is Artel’s FiberLink 3500 Series, which transmits 4K/UHD video at up to 60fps one way and which the company says supports nearly every type of video, audio and data signal.
