IBC 2016: Artel Video Systems InfinityLink teams up with Harman’s Studer A-Link Interface
Artel Video Systems and Harman’s Studer announced that Artel’s new InfinityLink broadcast media transport solution has been successfully deployed to transport Studer A-Link audio data streams across fiber infrastructures. The InfinityLink product line will make its debut at IBC2016 on Artel’s stand, 10.B20.
InfinityLink, an integrated and scalable media transport solution designed for broadcast-quality applications, allows end users to design and manage video, audio, and data transport systems from studio to studio or from remote site to network operations center with confidence. The solution’s scalable architecture creates an easy-to-deploy solution ideal for customers that require reliable broadcast-quality transmission and the flexibility to manage future growth and emerging technologies while maximizing their investment. InfinityLink is an ideal solution for broadcaster, sports and higher education, government, and houses of worship applications.
Found in Studer’s Vista V and Vista X digital consoles, A-Link, utilizing Artel’s InfinityLink, now provides a flexible, cost-efficient, and reliable digital audio interface capable of transmitting 1536 channels of “zero-latency” digital audio to be transported between remote sites and the mixing console back at the studio.
A return fiber is also provided, enabling return audio circuits, control, and status to be connected over the same link. The optical multiplexing features of InfinityLink enable several A-Link streams, along with video and Ethernet, to be multiplexed on a single fiber, offering complete remote coverage including video, audio, control, and communications over a single fiber pair.
“A-Link with InfinityLink’s fiber transport capabilities brings a new scale of interfacing to the audio world,” says Katy Templeman-Holmes, Solutions & Marketing, Broadcast, Harman Professional Solutions. “We are pleased to be strengthening our relationship with Artel and expanding the capabilities of our A-Link solution.”
“Studer’s legendary reputation in the audio industry, combined with Artel’s reputation for reliability, make the integration of A-Link and InfinityLink the ideal solution for transporting audio over fiber networks,” says Mike Rizzo, President and CEO of Artel Video Systems. “Continuing our partnership with HARMAN’s Studer further extends users’ capabilities in transporting audio streams, providing the flexibility to meet the growing needs of evolving workflows and emerging networks.”
