NAB 2017: Artel To Showcase Updates to DigiLink, InfinityLink, FiberLink
Artel Video Systems (Booth N4511) will feature the newest capabilities in its DigiLink, and InfinityLink platforms and FiberLink fiber-optic transmission product line. As the show draws closer, Artel will make other major announcements.
Artel offers reliable, standards-based IP solutions designed specifically to address customers; growing requirements as they migrate from direct fiber to IP networks. Supporting autosensing of broadcast-quality 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and ASI video formats, the solutions include SMPTE 2022-1/2/5/6/7 IP encapsulation, optional forward-error-correction (FEC) algorithms, and seamless protection switching for flexible configurations that maximize reliable performance and minimize latency. In addition, Artel offers Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) IP interfaces, enabling end users to bridge IP data for greater bandwidth utilization of a 10G Ethernet trunk. Artel’s IP-based capabilities will be featured in the new InfinityLink broadcast media-transport solution and the company’s NEBS Level 3-certified DigiLink platforms.
L-Band Demodulation, Satellite Scanning With Carrier ID (DLC510)
Artel’s award-winning DLC510 dual-port L-band demodulator and satellite scanner adds fully automatic L-band satellite-scanning functionality to the company’s media-transport solutions. Using its flexible HTTP- and SNMPv2-based element-management systems, the DLC510 provides essential RF information, modulation data, and other key metrics used in daily operations in an easy-to-read list. Operators can select from the list to choose a specific satellite transponder and send the demodulated signal to the ASI output for transport by other InfinityLink or DigiLink modules or by FiberLink products over IP and fiber networks. Also, the DLC510 supports carrier ID monitoring per ETSI TS 103 129.
InfinityLink Broadcast-Media Transport
The InfinityLink platform provides transport of video, audio, and data over IP- and fiber-based networks for 3G/HD/SD-SDI, DVB-ASI, and Ethernet and is suited to broadcast, sports, higher-education, government, and related applications. Artel will demonstrate IP- and fiber-based capabilities in its new, fully integrated InfinityLink IL6000, a 1RU four-slot chassis with active routing and SNMP management system.
FiberLink 4K/UHD Solutions
The FiberLink 3500 Series transmits 4K/UHD video at up to 60 frames per second one way. Supporting nearly every type of video, audio, and data signal, FiberLink products are suitable for broadcast or corporate studios, OB vans, point-of-view cameras, rental and staging, auditoriums, stadiums and theaters, transportation hubs, distance learning, and more.
