Artel introduces the ILC103A 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI Transmitter/Receiver. The ILC103A is the newest member of the InfinityLink platform of broadcast media transport solutions and provides bi-directional fiber transport of 3G, HD, SD, and ASI signals.

In combination with the IL6000 chassis, the ILC103A integrates seamlessly 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).

“Artel understands the complex workflows involved in transporting video across and between broadcast studios, large venues, and campuses,” said Rafael Fonseca, Vice President and Director of Product Management, Artel Video Systems. “End users require flexible solutions to manage the multi-faceted network challenges they face. The ILC103A and InfinityLink platform provide the versatility necessary to manage diverse infrastructures and, along with other modules in the InfinityLink chassis, achieve greater efficiencies in providing transport over IP- and fiber-based networks.”

Artel will demonstrate the InfinityLink platform with the ILC103A, including interoperability with DigiLink and FiberLink® products, at the 2016 NAB Show New York in booth 1202. Attendees are encouraged to stop by to learn more.
