NAB 2018: Artel Video Systems To Address Customer Needs With End-to-End IP Demos
At the 2018 NAB Show, Artel will feature three integrated end-to-end IP-centric demo areas specifically designed to address customers’ growing requirements as they migrate toward all-IP or hybrid IP/SDI networks. Artel’s exhibit will showcase the company’s expanding portfolio, including solutions for SMPTE 2110, AES67 and SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless protection as well as ARQ RIST OTT streaming.
As the show draws closer, Artel will make other major announcements, including plans for interactive demonstrations and integrated IP workflows.
Winner of the IABM Design and Innovation Award 2017, Content and Communication Infrastructure category, the SMART Media Delivery Platform is a carrier-grade, software-defined platform with integrated non-blocking Layer 2/3 switching and routing capabilities. The SMART features four video ports for transport of video, audio, and ancillary data and four GigE data ports bridged to a 10G interface. Designed to attach seamlessly to the IP network without the need for external network elements, the SMART platform supports SMPTE ST 2022: 1-7 hitless switching, QoS, VLAN tagging, and traffic management. Software-enabled, functionality of the platform can be added or upgraded via software download.
The ARG Quarra family offers IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization. The switches support SMPTE ST 2110-10 standard system timing and definition and ST 2059-2 permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional gen-locked SDI equipment, and they are RAVENNA AES67-approved. ARG Quarra switches are designed for audio/video broadcast, defense and security, finance, utilities, telecom, and enterprise IT applications in which accurate timing and control are required.
The ARQ IP Streaming System serves Reliable Internet Streaming Transport (RIST) for OTT video applications. Because the ARQ solution is scalable in single-stream increments, broadcasters can quickly add additional ARQ licenses to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services. The ARQ system is simple to configure and ideal for distribution of high-quality video over unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, internet, and satellite.
Artel’s SMARTplatform will be featured with Artel’s SMPTE standards-based IP solutions in the company’s modular InfinityLink and DigiLink media transport platforms.
