Artel Video Systems Mellanox Team Up To Deliver HD-SDI Video Over Ethernet
Artel Video Systems (Booth SU9102) has announced interoperability between its DigiLink media-transport platform and the SX1012 switch system from Mellanox Technologies. The interoperability enables transport of uncompressed HD-SDI streams over an Ethernet network in accordance with industry-standard SMPTE 2022-5/6 specification for IP Encapsulation and Forward Error Correction.
“Since the 2012 release of SMPTE 2022-6, the broadcast industry has been demanding end-to-end transport of uncompressed video in an IP-centric world,” says Artel President Richard Dellacanonica. “The Mellanox Ethernet switch enables us to provide our mutual customers with a complete SMPTE 2022-based solution over IP infrastructures.”
The Artel DigiLink DLC450 module is a cost-effective solution for transporting uncompressed HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) over 10GbE networks using SMPTE 2022-5/6 packetization and FEC. In interoperability testing, the DLC450 worked seamlessly with the Mellanox SX1012 switch system, a cost-effective and high-performance top-of-rack solution. The interoperability testing has proved that both technologies adhere to and can support SMPTE 2022 to enable encapsulation of high-performance video signals for transport over IP networks.
“The SMPTE 2022 standard-based solution enabled by Artel’s DLC450 DigiLink and Mellanox’s SX1012 switch system provides a great deal of flexibility for broadcasters who want to operate their own private networks or exchange content with a variety of other sources,” says Mellanox VP, Marketing Kevin Deierling. “The industry standard was designed to address the challenge of using IP for all types of media. Together, Artel and Mellanox enable broadcasters to transport error-free video throughout the studio and across managed IP networks.”
