Like many industries, healthcare has come to rely heavily on high-resolution imaging and secure high-bandwidth transport of media over longer and longer distances. All of these requirements have made fiber optic cabling — and products from the Artel FiberLink® family — a great fit for medical facilities and applications.
When a TV station in the Eastern U.S. planned to add HD video services, the station’s engineering team found that it couldn’t move the higher-resolution video to its affiliate over its existing 1G station-to-affiliate link, an SDI/ASI over fiber and Gigabit Ethernet hybrid network built on Artel base fiber infrastructure.
If you’ve been following along at home, you know that the first three blogs in this “lessons learned” series dig into the benefits of PTP-aware switches in an IP environment, correct handing of PTP and synchronization in IP-based media workflows. We shift gears just a bit with this blog to look more closely at interoperability — or, making sure everything works!
