An integrated and scalable media transport solution designed for broadcast-quality applications, InfinityLink, has been launched by Artel Video Systems to fill a hole in its portfolio.
InfinityLink, which sits between the company’s high-end media transport platform, DigiLink, and portable fibre optic transmission product, FiberLink, allows end-users to design and manage video, audio and data transport systems from studio to studio or from remote site to network operations centre.
It is aimed at broadcasters, as well as sports, higher education and government applications, that do not require the level of support that telecommunications companies require and getfrom DigiLink.
Paul Seiden, director of international and channel sales at Artel, commented: “We really had a gap between DigiLink and FiberLink.
With InfinityLink we’re meeting a lot of broadcaster requirements, so you can mix transport technologies IP and fibre as needed, access hot swappable cards, use remote monitoring, the satellite demodulator, plus it’s low power and affordable.”
Artel has introduced the first members of the InfinityLink product line, including the IL6000, a space-saving 1RU chassis featuring 20x20 3G routing and Ethernet switching capabilities.
The IL6000 includes on-board chassis management, enabling broadcasters and AV professionals to monitor, configure, and upgrade
chassis and function module firmware with ease.
