A set of new IP conversion products for the miniHUB platform to streamline conversion between IP and SDI transport streams will be announced at IBC2017.
The new modules include a version that enables the multiplexing of 18 IP data streams into a single fibre stream, and a module for simple conversion from IP to SDI via fibre and visa-versa. These bundled versions are available with the RCONmini interface to enable simple configuration and standardisation on SMPTE 2022-6, with upgrade paths to SMPTE 2110 including HDR to ensure future compatibility.
Tore Steen, CEO, Norwia, said: “miniHUB has proven extremely popular with our customers as a platform for transitioning existing SDI equipment into the IP domain. With these new upgrade modules, we extend the value even further by using the same core frames with updated modules that deliver an enhanced feature set.”
Also on show are new higher density dual layer frames, extended SMC camera interface support, and an enhanced software suite. Another highlight is a new 10G electrical Ethernet to optical solution for the miniHUB frame. It uses Norwia’s range of 10G approved optics that include standard 1310 optics or CWDM optics for multiplexing. The converter provides a non-evasive way of handling 10G data circuits without interference of content while providing accurate optical signal level measurements.
