Artel will be exhibiting in booth 11 and also taking part in a special interoperability demonstration at the event. Featuring equipment from multiple vendors interoperating to transport SD-SDI video over IP, the demonstration is the first of its kind to implement the newly developed SMPTE 2022-5 and -6 standards currently before SMPTE’s committee.

In the Artel booth, visitors will get a look at the company’s flagship DL4000 digital video transport system, a modular, 1RU chassis system representing the state of the art for critical, carrier-class applications such as backhaul and content contribution. Telcos, video service providers, and CATV operators have come to rely on the flexible and easy-to-deploy DL4000 to effectively manage their transport needs for any video format over diverse network topologies. Among the latest advancements in the platform is the recently released DLT710 multiformat signal generator and circuit verification module. The DLT710 is specifically designed to address the need for a flexible inexpensive unit to verify and monitor 3G, HD, SD, ASI, and ATSC video links.

“Artel is one of the founding members of the Video Services Forum and we’re excited to be taking part in this event,” said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. “The organization gives us the opportunity to help shape the standards for broadcast-quality video transport and demonstrate our commitment to providing rugged, reliable solutions like the DL4000 to manage the most critical transport needs.”

The VidTrans 2011 conference and exhibition features more than two days of sessions, networking events and exhibits, and focuses on the theme “Video Services; Embracing New Technologies and Applications.” The Video Services Forum has been in operation since 1997 and its members have long been instrumental in developing, engineering, and testing the latest in video networking technologies, fostering interoperability and the development of new industry standards.
“The interoperability demonstration is particularly exciting for us,” Dellacanonica continued. “We worked closely with other VSF members to enable standards-based transport of high bit-rate video over IP. The market need for this is clear and we’re proud to be part of enabling it.”
