In-band management and GigE capabilities have been added to the DigiLink media transport platform’s HD-SDI over IP gateway.
The Artel Video Systems module uses SMPTE 2022-5/6 to transport a single channel of uncompressed HD-SDI over managed Ethernet IP networks.
Artel has also debuted a dual-port L-Band demodulator for DigiLink. Capable of receiving up to two L-Band signals and converting them to DVB-ASI for transport, this module also supports ETSI TS 103 129 Carrier ID monitoring.
Both of the new modules can be combined with other transport capabilities in an existing DigiLink chassis.
Also at IBC Artel has introduced the Fiberlink six-channel HD/SDI/ASI multiplexer. The transmitter/receiver pair of 1-RU chassis aggregates up to six asynchronous HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and DVB-ASI video feeds into a single wavelength for transport across fibre or managed optical networks.
Artel Video Systems acquired the assets of Communications Specialties, the developer of the Fiberlink fibre optic transmission systems, in April this year.
“With our expanding portfolio, Artel enables its customers to consolidate their media transport needs through one of the most reliable vendors in the market,” said Artel Video Systems president Mike Rizzo.
