Artel Video Systems — Booth 14
For more than 30 years, Artel Video Systems has been a leading global provider of broadcast-quality, video transport solutions. The company’s DigiLink platform is regarded as one of the most innovative designs in the industry, with thousands of systems deployed in mission-critical applications by the world’s largest telecommunication companies.
At VidTrans13, Artel Video Systems will demonstrate its latest advancements in video transport technology, including an innovative new DigiLink chassis, the DL4360x, featuring integrated video and Ethernet routing. In addition, new platform management software and Ethernet transport capabilities will be on display.
New Products and Technology Demos
DL4360x DigiLink Video Transport Chassis Visitors to Artel Video Systems’ booth at VidTrans13 will catch a demonstration of the company’s DL4360x DigiLink video transport chassis — an advanced design that combines modular-based transport functionalities with simultaneous internal routing of both native video and Ethernet traffic. This approach eliminates the need for external cross connects, significantly streamlining routing and rerouting of video and Ethernet traffic. Ideal for environments where active management of signal routing is critical, the 3RU chassis supports up to 12 DigiLink function modules. Chassis monitoring and management is made simple via external status LEDs, a feature-rich HTTP interface, and SNMPv2 capabilities.
9-Port Gigabit Ethernet Aggregator and Optical Transceiver [DLC205] Artel Video Systems will also showcase the DLC205 Ethernet aggregator and optical transceiver. Integrating seamlessly within the company’s DigiLink video transport platform, the single-slot module is an ideal solution for broadcasters, CATV operators, telco operators, and video service providers looking to aggregate Ethernet traffic across a single optical or electrical connection. The highly versatile DLC205 features an innovative design capable of aggregating nine channels — five external and four internal — of 10/100/1000 Ethernet traffic for transport across electrical or optical networks. The fully nonblocking module features a total capacity of 18 Gigabits of Ethernet traffic. Linking the four internal ports to other modules in a DigiLink chassis, users can eliminate the need for external cabling.
9-Port Gigabit Ethernet Aggregator and Optical Transceiver with Onboard Chassis Management [DLM205] Leveraging the same functionalities and cutting-edge design of the DLC205 Ethernet aggregator and optical transceiver, the DLM205 integrates HTTP and SNMP management capabilities for the DL4000 chassis. The management traffic is combined with other Ethernet traffic in the chassis for full in-band management.
Multiport Video I/O Access to DL4360x Chassis [DLC055] Artel Video Systems will highlight the DLC055 multiport video I/O access module at VidTrans13. The module is designed to provide flexible video inputs and outputs as well as distribution amplifier capabilities to the DL4360x chassis. The DLC055 provides five independent video inputs and five internally routed outputs to or from function modules in a DL4360x chassis. Each port supports all standard video formats from 3G-SDI to ATSC, and outputs are reclocked to ensure video quality and integrity. The DLC055 substantially increases the capabilities of the DL4360x by enabling inputs to be distributed to multiple modules in the chassis for separate processing and transport, and multiple outputs provide reclocked electrical outputs for DA applications. Note: Artel President and CEO Richard Dellacanonica serves as a member of the Video Services Forum board of directors. The company will help sponsor a welcome reception on Feb. 26 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the exhibit hall.
