Nevion Virtuoso’s ASI and TS over IP Media Functions provides high density ASI-IP conversion, Transport Stream monitoring and redundancy switching on the software-defined HBR accelerator card.
The ASI media function runs on the Virtuoso HBR accelerator card providing up to 8 ASI inputs and 8 ASI outputs. Transport Streams are routed to/from an Uplink HBR card in Virtuoso that provides high density IP aggregation of Transport Streams on 1/10 GigE.
The solution provides ultra high density ASI-IP conversion, up to 48 bidirectional channels in a single Virtuoso MI.
For TS over IP gateway, monitoring and redundancy switching applications, the Uplink is used stand-alone with 4x 10GE/1GE interfaces, providing up to 32 gateways or 32 switches per card, or 256 gateways/switches per Virtuoso MI.
TS monitoring according to ETSI TR 101 290 is included, helping broadcasters and service providers to verify the quality of the video signal at demarcation points in broadcast contribution and distribution networks.
The versatility, performance and reliability of Nevion’s Virtuoso makes it the perfect choice for business critical broadcast contribution and distribution applications.
