Artel Video Systems today introduced the FiberLink ST 2110 Gateway, which bridges SDI interfaces to JT-NM-tested SMPTE ST 2110 IP media streams.
Well before distance learning became a necessary part of modern educational offerings, fiber-based transport of video, audio, and data played a critical role in supporting teaching, administrative, and other vital activities — particularly for colleges and universities spread across larger campuses, or even multiple locations.
In this last of our “lessons learned” from real-world deployments, we look at diagnostics. If you’re deploying PTP-aware switches in an IP environment you’ll want proper diagnostics during staging to get everything humming along nicely. Down the road, of course, you’ll want diagnostic tools to accelerate troubleshooting, or to prevent small issues from becoming big problems.
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.
