VGW-5100 – openGear ASI to IP Encapsulation & De-encapsulation Media Gateway
Card-Based Media Gateway w/ Single Transport Stream Output:
- 1x ASI to IP encapsulation or IP to ASI de-encapsulation
- 1x Gigabit Ethernet interface
- Management and control via openGear chassis
- IP transmission using unicast or multicast
- In-band or out-of-band control
- Multicast IGMP v1,v2 and v3 support
The VGW-5100 Media Gateway is the market leading high availability solution, enabling transmission of real-time video over IP networks. The flexible openGear™ platform provides operators with a powerful, cost effective solution for processing or format converting DVB transport streams.
Application: Contribution & Distribution:
The VGW-5100 Media Gateway module is a high performance real-time MPEG video processing solution that supports bi-directional Transport Stream to IP encapsulation as standard.Based on the openGear™ architecture, the VGW-5100 has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of post-production ,Contribution and Distribution applications enabling multiple MPEG transport streams to be transported through Gigabit Ethernet connections over an IP network.
The VGW-5100 is fully bi-directional in both the ASI and IP domain and can be software licensed to enable enhanced Transport Stream processing and multiplexing functions.
The Media Gateway product has been equipped with the latest advances in error correction for maximum transmission reliability through the implementation of SMPTE 2022 FEC.State of the art processing combined with the unique Mediastorm processing core enables new system architectures to be created allowing content to be freely distributed over IP networks.
- Cost Effective
- The VGW-5100 enables operators to take advantage of the associated cost savings by deploying IP networks while increasing flexibility and reliability.
Reliable broadcast quality transmission of content over IP networks is achieved through the implementation of SMPTE 2022 and direct processing technologies. This delivers precise packet timing and buffer management, reducing IP jitter and delay.
High Density & Low Power:
The low power, high density 2RU chassis with dual front loading, hot swappable power supplies, enable up to 60 Multi Program Transport Streams(MPTS) to be processed, encapsulated and de-encapsulated simultaneously.
Control & Monitoring:
The VidOvation Network Control & Monitoring software is a free application designed for remote control & monitoring of the open architecture, openGear™ platform. For larger deployments where multiple chassis are deployed the VidOvation NCM application can be used for software updates, configuration and control.
