Artel will showcase an end-to-end hybrid IP-and fibre-based network specifically
designed to address customers’ growing requirements as they migrate from direct
fibre to all IP or hybrid IP/SDI networks, at IBC2017.
Artel’s exhibit will highlight new products, features, and functionality in Artel’s
InfinityLink and DigiLink solutions while demonstrating SMPTE-based standards and
interoperability with other vendors’ solutions.
Reliable IP transport of live, broadcast-quality media is now a reality, and Artel offers
standards-based solutions in the company’s modular InfinityLink and DigiLink media
transport platforms. New capabilities include auto-sensing of broadcast-quality 3G-
SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, ASI video formats plus Ethernet traffic over IP. Artel’s IP-based
solutions include SMPTE 2022-1/2/5/6 IP encapsulation and optional forward error
correction (FEC) algorithms for flexible configurations that maximise reliable
performance and minimise latency.
Artel’s IP network will feature the DLC/ILC410, DLC/ILC450 IP transport solutions for
the DigiLink and InfinityLink platforms and showcase new features in the DLC/ILC450
including Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) IP interfaces enabling greater bandwidth utilisation.
The company will provide an interactive demonstration of SMPTE 2022-7 Hitless
Protection Switching in an IP network. Attendees will be able to create “breaks” in
video transmissions between the company’s InfinityLink chassis and witness delivery
of uninterrupted clear video signals.
Also, as the show draws closer, Artel will make a major announcement about a new IP
solution for the DigiLink and InfinityLink platforms.
Artel and ARG are teaming up at IBC2017 to offer attendees additional IP delivery
solutions while demonstrating interoperability between Artel’s InfinityLink and DigiLink
platforms and ARG’s Quarra and ARQ IP solutions:
In addition, Artel will showcase the ARG Quarra 10000 10-Gbps Ethernet PTP Switch
actively routing video, audio, and data through Artel’s network. The ARG Quarra
supports the SMPTE 2110-10 proposed standard for System Timing and Definition and
2059-2 permitting the interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with
conventional genlocked SDI equipment. The ARG Quarra switches are designed for
audio/video broadcast, defence and security, finance, utilities, telecom, and enterprise
IT applications where accurate timing and control is required.
Featured in Artel’s live network will be ARG’s 8000 ARQ IP streaming device providing
a simple-to-configure solution for the distribution of high-quality video over
unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, the internet, and satellite. Being
scalable in single stream increments, broadcasters can quickly add additional ARQ
licenses to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services.
Artel’s 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 perfect for broadcast or corporate studios, OB vans, point-of-view
cameras, rental and staging, auditoriums, stadiums and theatres, transportation hubs,
distance learning, and more.
