Artel Video Systems releases DLC410 Video-over-IP Gateway

Video transport over fiber specialist Artel Video Systems recently unveiled the DLC410 Video-Over-IP Gateway as part of the company’s DL4000 portfolio. The DLC410 is a DVB-ASI- and SD-SDI-over-IP gateway designed to enable transport of two bidirectional video streams across a single Gigabit Ethernet IP connection.

Video transport over fiber specialist Artel Video Systems recently unveiled the DLC410 Video-Over-IP Gateway as part of the company’s DL4000 portfolio. The DLC410 is a DVB-ASI- and SD-SDI-over-IP gateway designed to enable transport of two bidirectional video streams across a single Gigabit Ethernet IP connection.

The DLC410 marks Artel’s entry into video over IP transport and expands the DL4000 platform’s capabilities to include standards-based video-over-IP transport for both DVB-ASI and SD-SDI formats. Based on SMPTE 2022 standards for encapsulation and forward error correction (FEC), the DLC410 enables up to four channels of SDI and ASI video streams to be transported across managed IP networks; it is “ideally suited” for multicasting applications, Artel asserts.

“The module’s low cost, reliability, and rich feature-set make it an ideal solution for CATV operators and video service providers with intercity video connectivity requirements,” said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. “Up until very recently, IP connectivity wasn’t reliable enough for the critical contribution applications our products support. Now that IP backbones are more robust and an SMPTE standard has been developed, this new IP gateway makes sense for our customers.”

The DLC410 enables SDI video to be transported in its entirety, including all ancillary data, and ASI video streams from less than 20 Mbps to more than 200 Mbps are supported as well, Artel says. The FEC enables the recovery of lost, errored, or delayed IP packets and can withstand burst outages in excess of 15 msec. The SMPTE 2022 standard, which Artel helped to develop, helps to ensure reliable IP transport.

The DLC410 is designed to be simple and intuitive to configure. It offers access to IP networks through rear-accessible, field-replaceable small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers either optically in WDM, CWDM, and DWDM wavelengths or electrically via an RJ-45 SFP.
