Artel is preparing for the NAB Show 2018. Here are a few of the products we will be showcasing, each designed to address the growing requirements as customers migrate toward All-IP or hybrid IP/SDI networks and require solutions offering SMPTE 2110, AES67, SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless protection, and RIST.
New at NAB Show 2018! SMART Media Delivery Platform™
Winner of the IABM Design and Innovation Award 2017, Content and Communication Infrastructure category, the SMART Media Delivery Platform is a carrier-grade, software-defined platform with integrated nonblocking Layer 2/3 switching and routing capabilities. The SMART features four video ports for transport of 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: 1-7 Hitless Switching; QoS, VLAN tagging, and traffic management. Software-enabled, functionality of the platform can be added or upgraded via software download.
New at NAB Show 2018! Quarra PTP Ethernet Switches
The Quarra family offers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization. The switches support SMPTE ST 2110-10 standard system timing and definition and ST 2059-2 permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment, and they are RAVENNA AES67-approved. Quarra switches are designed for audio/video broadcast, defense and security, finance, utilities, telecom, and enterprise IT applications in which accurate timing and control are required.
New at NAB Show 2018! ARQ IP Streaming System
The ARQ IP Streaming System serves Reliable Internet Streaming Transport (RIST) for OTT video applications. Because the ARQ solution is scalable in single-stream increments, broadcasters can quickly add additional 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.
Standards-Based IP Transport With DigiLink and InfinityLink Platforms
Artel offers standards-based solutions in the company’s modularInfinityLink and DigiLink media transport platforms. At the NAB Show 2018, Artel will highlight features including Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) IP interfaces that enable greater bandwidth utilization. Artel’s IP-based solutions include SMPTE ST 2022-1/2/5/6/7 IP encapsulation and forward error correction (FEC) algorithms for flexible configurations that maximize reliable performance and minimize latency.
As the show draws closer, Artel will make other major announcements unveiling plans for interactive demonstrations and integrated IP workflows.
