Apantac Develops Video over IP Multiviewers

At the 2017 IBC Show, Apantac, a specialist on multiviewers, video walls, extenders, and signal processing solutions, is launching its new Video over IP Multiviewers, offering 16 Video over IP inputs and support for the latest SMPTE video over IP standards.

Apantac said it designed the Si-16 series of Multiviewers to address the growing demand for monitoring video and audio signals over an IP network infrastructure. At IBC, the new Si-16 series will be demonstrated supporting the ST 2022-6 standard for encapsulated SDI over IP. Soon, these Multiviewers will support the ST 2022-7 standard for redundancy as well as the latest ST 2110 video over IP standard.



The new Si-16 series of Multiviewers accept 16 Video over IP inputs using SFP modules. The connection between the IP Switch and the Si-16 is accomplished via fiber. There are three models to choose from, sharing the same 1 RU hardware. The Si-16 is an 16x1 Multiviewer with a dual set of identical HDMI and SDI outputs. The Si-16+ consists of two 8x1 Multiviewers where the output from each of them is available as both HDMI and SDI. The Si-16# is a 16x2 Multiviewer with two sets of HDMI and SDI outputs where any input can be displayed on one or both outputs.



At IBC, Apantac will also launch a Video over IP input board for the modular T# Multiviewer series accepting up to 8 ST 2022-6 signals. The new Video over IP board expands the range of formats that T# supports making very versatile.
