SMART Media Delivery Platform  Artel Video Systems is pleased to announce its lineup of products that will be on display at BroadcastAsia 2018. The exhibit will include, solutions for SMPTE 2110, AES67, and SMPTE ST 2022-7 seamless protection switching, as well as ARQ Reliable Internet Streaming Transport (RIST) OTT streaming.

New at BroadcastAsia2018 will be the SMART Media Delivery Platform™ for reliable and accurate video, audio, and data transport. A finalist in the Connect category of the IABM Broadcast and Media (BaM) Awards™ for 2018, Artel’s SMART Platform is a carrier-grade, software-defined platform with integrated nonblocking Layer 2/3 switching and routing capabilities. The SMART Platform features four video ports for transporting video, audio, and ancillary data and four GigE data ports bridged to a 10G interface. Designed to attach seamlessly to the IP network without the need for external network elements, the SMART Platform supports SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless switching, QoS, VLAN tagging, and traffic management. Because the platform is software-enabled, users can add to or upgrade its functionality via software download.

Also new at BroadcastAsia 2018 will be the Quarra PTP Ethernet Switch. Offering the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization, the Quarra supports the SMPTE ST 2110-10 standard for system timing and definition and ST 2059-2, permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment. The Quarra switches are RAVENNA AES67-approved and Dante- and QSC-tested, and are designed for audio/video broadcast, defense and security, finance, utility, telecom, and enterprise IT applications in which accurate timing and control are required.

Finally, visitors to Artel’s BroadcastAsia 2018 stand will see the ARQ IP Streaming System, which serves RIST for OTT video applications. Because the ARQ solution is scalable in single-stream increments, broadcasters can quickly add more ARQ licenses to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services. The ARQ system is simple to configure and ideal for distribution of high-quality video over unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, internet, and satellite.

Attendees are encouraged to stop by stand 4Q2-03 in the USA Pavilion to learn more about Artel’s IP-centric media delivery solutions.

“With the acceptance of standards such as SMPTE ST 2110 and AES67, transitioning to all IP is becoming a reality,” said Rafael Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management at Artel. “Artel’s stand will feature the company’s portfolio of IP-centric products specifically designed to address end user requirements for efficiency, resiliency, interoperability, audio accuracy, and reliability as they navigate toward IP ecosystems.”
