Artel Video Systems has introduced the ILC103A 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI Transmitter/Receiver, the newest member of the InfinityLink platform of broadcast media transport solutions.
In combination with the IL6000 chassis, Artel said the ILC103A integrates within the InfinityLink platform to create the backbone of a video transmission network that can span feet or miles.
The ILC103A provides bi-directional fiber-optic transport of 3G, HD, SD and ASI formats and is user-configurable as a transmitter, receiver, transceiver, repeater or four-channel distribution amplifier. The module uses externally accessible SFP optical components available in a wide range of options, from low-cost multimode for short distances to 80km-plus CWDM versions.
End users can remotely configure, monitor and upgrade the ILC103A via HTTP or SNMPv2 using the InfinityLink Manager element management system (EMS).
