Reflecting one of the big themes at this year’s IBC, Artel Video Systems is showing off new advances for DigiLink, the media transport platform for sending broadcast-quality media across IP networks, direct fibre and optical backbones.
On display in Hall 2, DigiLink now incorporates the DL4360x, a new chassis that has broadcast video over IP, JPEG 2000 compression and Ethernet switching capabilities.
The JPEG 2000 compression format, which can transport HD-SDI over networks when bandwidth is limited, is a key subject for Artel this year as is video over IP, for which the company has “a complete set of cost-effective, reliable solutions for transporting HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and DVB-ASI over IP networks.”
Artel is also demoing DigiLink’s built-in signal routing capabilities for realtime video and Ethernet signals. This sees media switched in its original format and is said to “eliminate the need for external video routers and Ethernet switches.”
Another topic of interest is the integration between DigiLink and HARMAN Studer’s A-Link, the Dimetis BOSS LINK Manager and Wohler’s MPEG Series monitors.
