Artel is happy to announce that our SMART OpenGear is a Best New Hardware Infrastructure Technology winner in the 2021 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards. This official awards program recognizes the most significant and promising new products and technologies showcased by corporate partners of NAB Show.
The SMART Multimedia Delivery Platform in openGear® (SMART OG) is a software-defined, four-channel auto-sense SD-SDI/HD-SDI/3G/4K-over-IP multifunction gateway that allows uses to deploy hardware once and change functions (SMPTE ST 2022-7, JPEG2000 compression, JPEG-X, SMPTE ST 2110, etc.) via software update. The Artel SMART OG gateway is designed to operate in the openGear modular infrastructure platform, and it attaches seamlessly to the IP network without the need for external network elements.
