Artel Video Shows Shift To IP

Artel products intend to simplify broadcasters’ shift to hybrid IP/SDI and all-IP operations. Product includes the SMART Media Delivery Platform, the Quarra IP PTP switches and FiberLink media transport products.

Artel's SMART Media Delivery Platform is presented as a software defined, 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 seamlessly 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; J2K compression; QoS; VLAN tagging; and traffic management. 

Throughout NAB, Artel will offer live demos highlighting the platform's J2K support, as well as its flexibility. Attendees will see how different software images can be selected to enable different functionality on the installed hardware system as needed. One SMART implementation will be shown running uncompressed video and another running compressed video to allow the two video streams to be compared.

Quarra PTP Ethernet Switches are designed for live performance environments such as opera houses as well as broadcast. Artel says the IP switches offer the industry's most accurate IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization. Quarra switches have been modified to support live performance environments. Quarra now features quieter fans, as well as new software-based controls that vary fan speed based on temperature for less overall noise. 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.  Supporting nearly every type of video, audio, and data signal, Artel's FiberLink media transport products bring flexibility to broadcast or corporate studios, OB vans, point-of-view cameras, and other pro A/V environments. Devices in the range boast SMPTE standards support to ensure interoperability and reliability in video, audio, and data transport.
