Artel Adds To InfinityLink IP-based Transport Tools


Artel Video Systems, a provider to broadcast media of IP- and fiber-based media transport solutions, has two new members of its InfinityLink broadcast media transport platform: The ILC450 10G HD/SD-SDI, ASI IP Gateway & GigE Data Transport module; and the ILC410 SD-SDI or ASI Two-Channel Bidirectional IP Gateway.

The ILC450 and ILC410 add IP capabilities to Artel’s InfinityLink.

In a company press release, Artel said the ILC450 and ILC410 address the industry’s growing requirements as they migrate from direct fiber to IP networks. The ILC450 supports auto-sensing of standards-based, broadcast-quality HD/SD-SDI and ASI video formats.

SMPTE 2022-1/2/5/6 IP Encapsulation and optional Forward Error Correction (FEC) algorithms enable flexible configurations of the ILC450 that maximize reliable performance and minimize latency. Also, a 1 GigE IP interface allows end users to bridge IP data for greater bandwidth utilization of the 10G Ethernet interface.

The ILC410 enables DVB-ASI and SD-SDI video to be reliably transported over IP networks.

“As end users begin to migrate to IP-based operations, they need video, audio, and data transport solutions that can help them manage complex workflows consisting of multiple formats and technologies,” said Artel VP/Director of Product Management Rafael Fonseca. “Artel understands the multifaceted challenges that face broadcasters and other markets. The ILC450 and ILC410 are solutions designed to provide greater flexibility and bandwidth efficiency for reliable video and data transport over IP networks.”

Artel Video Systems will showcase its IP-based solutions at next week’s SMPTE 2016 (booth 105) and at the 2016 NAB Show New York (booth 1202), set for Nov. 9-10 at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
