Artel to show new video transport chassis at NAB
At the 2013 NAB Show, Artel Video Systems will demonstrate its latest advancements in video transport technology, including the innovative DL4360x DigiLink video transport chassis. In addition, new platform management software and other Ethernet transport capabilities will be on display.
Featuring a design that combines modular-based transport functionalities with simultaneous internal routing of both video and Ethernet traffic, the DL4360x chassis eliminates the need for external cross connects, significantly streamlining the routing and rerouting of video and Ethernet traffic. Suitable for environments where active management of signal routing is critical, the 3RU chassis supports up to 12 DigiLink function modules. Chassis monitoring and management is made simple via external status LEDs, a feature-rich HTTP interface and SNMPv2 capabilities.
Artel Video Systems will also showcase the DLC205 Ethernet aggregator and optical transceiver. Integrating seamlessly within the company’s DigiLink video transport platform, the single-slot module is an ideal solution for broadcasters, CATV operators, telco operators, and video service providers looking to aggregate Ethernet traffic across a single optical or electrical connection. The DLC205 features an innovative design capable of aggregating nine channels — five external and four internal — of 10/100/1000 Ethernet traffic for transport across electrical or optical networks. The fully nonblocking module features a total capacity of 18 gigabits of Ethernet traffic. Linking the four internal ports to other modules in a DigiLink chassis, users can eliminate the need for external cabling.
Leveraging the same functionalities and cutting-edge design of the DLC205, the DLM205 Ethernet aggregator integrates HTTP and SNMP management capabilities for DL4000 chassis. The management traffic is combined with other Ethernet traffic in the chassis for full in-band management.
Artel Video Systems’ DLC055 multiport video I/O access module will also be on display at the 2013 NAB Show. The module is designed to provide flexible video inputs and outputs as well as distribution amplifier capabilities to the DL4360x chassis. The DLC055 provides five independent video inputs and five internally routed outputs to or from function modules in a DL4360x chassis.
