Snell demonstrates SMPTE 20226 interoperability with Artel Video Systems

NAB, Las Vegas, 12th April 2015: At NAB 2015, Snell demonstrated SMPTE 2022-6 interoperability between Artel’s DigiLink DLC450 HD-SDI video over IP gateway and Snell’s IP routing solution in a live display on the Snell booth. 

The SMPTE 2022-6 standard defines an IP-based protocol for the transport of real-time, high bit rate video, audio, and ancillary signals over IP networks. 

“Since the 2012 release of the SMPTE 2022-6 standard, the industry has been demanding vendor interoperability to enable end-to-end transport and routing of uncompressed video in an IP centric world,” said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. “The ability of companies, such as Artel and Snell, to interoperate demonstrates that the standard is now well understood and ready for industry adoption and deployment.” 

“Many broadcasters contemplating the transition from SDI to IP routing regard SMPTE 2022-6 interoperability as critical to the success of IP routing in a multi-vendor world, and are requesting demonstrations of interoperability as part of any proof of concept deployment,” said Robert Rowe, Snell managing director, Live TV. “Thus Snell’s demonstration of SMPTE 2022-6 interoperability with Artel is an important step on the road to full scale deployment of IP routing solutions, giving broadcasters the confidence to move forward.”
