The SMART Media Delivery Platform™ is an award-winning four-channel auto-sense 3G/HD/SD-SDI-over-IP multi-function gateway with an integrated nonblocking Layer 2/3 switch. The SMART Platform has been designed to attach seamlessly to the IP network without the need for external network elements. Functionality of the platform may be added or upgraded via software download. The flexibility in function capabilities, along with greater port density, drastically reduces power consumption, reduces size and cost, and allows for a seamless transition as the end user’s network evolves.


  • Video-Over-IP Transport of 3G/HD/SD-SDI, ASI
  • Single double high module can be configured as Video to IP Transmitter or IP to Video Receiver
  • Fully transparent carriage of 3G/HD/SD-SDI, and ASI including audio and ancillary data
  • Four GigE data ports bridged to 10G interface
  • VLAN tagging capabilities
