Artel's documentation page has dozens of PDF files explaining how best to configure your equipment for your operations. Page through any guide, and you’ll learn exactly what to do to get you up and running. Simple and helpful screenshots allow you to get through setup quickly and successfully without necessarily understanding every switch feature so you’re pretty much good to go. But maybe you’re interested in the “why” as well as the “how”? This blog takes a closer look at three key features — IGMP snooping, QoS, and IEEE 1588 PTP — and why they are important in supporting a stable AES67 network.
Artel’s InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Solutions enable next-generation, over-the-air broadcast and content delivery for the new IP-based ATSC 3.0 standard while retaining legacy signal transport capabilities for ATSC 1.0. The InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Over Fiber and ATSC 3.0 Transition Over IP solutions include all necessary platform components and optical and/or electrical transceivers, ready for interconnection with either customer-furnished, single-mode fiber or a local, carrier-supplied IP GigE service.
While there are many benefits to deploying all-IP or hybrid IP / fiber networks, IP infrastructures come with their own set of issues. Jitter and latency are two of the most common problems hindering broadcast quality of audio and video transmissions over IP networks. IT and video engineers who understand the causes can take steps to reduce jitter and improve audio and video quality.
