The Media Links MDP3040 IP Media Gateway is a two-channel 4K/UHD TICO compression encoder/decoder, supporting several configurations.
Media Links will showcase its new MDP Series of products that address the need for compact, tightly integrated and easy to use platforms that enable the transport and delivery of real-time IP media services.
At IBC 2018, Media Links' new MDP3040 IP Media Gateway will make its debut. This is a two-channel 4K/UHD TICO lightweight compression encoder/decoder, supporting several configurations. Two 12G-SDI inputs can be TICO-encoded and transmitted over dual 10GbE network trunk interfaces or two TICO-encoded network streams can be simultaneously received and decoded as two 12G-SDI outputs.
For delivering 4K/UHD signals over existing 3G-SDI infrastructures, the MDP3040 can function as a standalone two-channel 12G-SDI input to a two-channel, TICO-compressed BNC output encoder. It can also function as a two-channel, TICO-compressed BNC input to two-channel 12G-SDI output decoder.
Dual 10GbE trunk interface along with hitless switching provide network redundancy and video/audio protection. In addition, 4K frame synchronization, SMPTE 2022 conformance, source ID Generators and HDMI monitor output are all part of the basic package. Broadcasters can use the MDP3040 for both remote venue transport as well as in-studio compression/decompression applications.
The second generation MDP3020 will also be on display at the IBC Show. New features include support for both 3G/HD/SD uncompressed as well as J2K compressed video, two channels of bi-directional hitless data, and both 10GbE and 1GbE dual network trunk interfaces. The unit’s LLDP trunk diagnostic and “keepalive” mechanism now interoperates with Media Links’ MD8000 product family of MDX switches as well as other MDP3020 units.
A new rack-mountable 1RU MDP Series Multi Unit power supply, which can power up to any combination of eight MDP3020 or MDP3040 units with redundant power.
The company's IP technology supports video, audio and data distribution over an IP network, replacing traditional dedicated switchers and encoding devices. Both the MDP3040 and MDP3020 are integrated with Media Links’ ProMD EMS Enhanced Management System for device configuration, service activation, overall system element management, as well as real-time monitoring and troubleshooting of network elements.
