Media Links Takes Wraps Off New MDP3020 MAX Encoder/Decoder
Media Links, manufacturer and pioneer in Media over IP transport technology, announces its debut of the MDP3020 MAX platform. Media Links will be showcasing this solution during the 2021 in-person event season including InterBEE on stand: 7516 and IBC 2021 on stand: 1.C33.
With insatiable demand for live content, there is an increasing infrastructure need for portable, network protected, remotely configurable and cost-effective IP media gateways. The MDP3020 MAX meets this demand as a high-quality, standalone edge device with configuration support for JPEG-XS compression.
The MDP3020 MAX encodes/decodes video, audio, and data content for carriage over wide area IP networks. It is designed primarily for use in live remote production environments where economical, highest contribution quality IP media conversion and transport robustness is essential.
MDP3020 MAX can be configured to support four (4) 1080P video channels using JPEG-XS compression, which achieves bandwidth reduction ratios of up to 10:1 and beyond, visually lossless quality and sub-millisecond latency. In addition, MDP3020 MAX supports JPEG2000 compression. It is ideal for the edge of an IP WAN network where bandwidth is typically constrained, where minimal latency is necessary for live interactive broadcasts, and where the transport of uncompressed high quality video is just not feasible.
The MDP3020 MAX is compact and portable, housed in a half-1RU footprint. Dual 1GbE or 10GbE trunk interfaces supporting ST 2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching as well as frame synchronization come standard, as do dual “hitless” 1G/10G data ports.
