Artel Video Systems' ARQ IP Streaming System
Artel is concentrating on solutions that it says simplifies the shift to hybrid IP/SDI and all-IP operations and addresses content providers’ requirements for reliable delivery of high-quality media.
The firm’s SMART Media Delivery Platform is presented as a carrier-grade, four-channel, auto-sense 3G/HD/SD-SDI-over-IP multifunction gateway with integrated nonblocking Layer 2/3 switching and routing capabilities. The software-enabled solution features four video ports for transport of video, audio, and ancillary data and four GigE data ports bridged to one or two 10G interfaces. Designed to attach to the IP network without the need for external network elements, the SMART platform supports SMPTE ST 2022: 1, 2, 5, 6, and 7 hitless switching; QoS; VLAN tagging; and traffic management.
Where accurate timing and control are required, Artel's Quarra range of PTP-aware managed IP switches claims the industry's most accurate IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization. The switches support SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2059-2, permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment. The switches are RAVENNA AES67-approved and Dante- and QSC-tested.
The ARQ IP Streaming System serves Reliable Internet Streaming Transport (RIST) for OTT video applications. The ARQ system is apparently simple to configure and targets distribution of high-quality video over unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, internet, and satellite. The solution is scalable in single-stream increments, allowing broadcasters to add ARQ licenses quickly to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services.
