An end-to-end hybrid IP and fibre-based network, specifically designed to address customers’ growing requirements as they migrate from direct fibre, is being showcased by Artel.

Reliable IP transport of live, broadcast-quality media is now a reality, according to Artel, which claimed it is offering standards-based solutions in its modular InfinityLink and DigiLink media transport platforms.

New capabilities include auto-sensing of broadcast-quality 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, ASI video formats plus Ethernet traffic over IP. Artel’s IP-based solutions include SMPTE 2022-1/2/5/6 IP encapsulation, and optional forward error correction algorithms for flexible configurations that are claimed to maximise reliable performance and minimise latency.

At IBC, Artel’s IP network features the DLC/ILC410 and DLC/ILC450 IP transport solutions for the DigiLink and InfinityLink platforms.

New features in the DLC/ILC450 include Gigabit Ethernet IP interfaces enabling greater bandwidth utilisation.

The company is also providing an interactive demonstration of SMPTE 2022-7 hitless protection switching in an IP network. Attendees are able to create ‘breaks’ in video transmissions between the company’s InfinityLink chassis and witness delivery of uninterrupted clear video signals.
