Harris introduces IP connectivity module for NetVX video networking platform

July 12, 2004

Harris has demonstrated its Gigabit Ethernet module, a new plug-in module for the company’s NetVX networking system. This new module supports video over IP for rich media content distributors.

The NetVX Gigabit module is part of the NetVX networking system, an integrated, high-speed network connectivity solution that takes the complexity and cost out of networking. With its ability to establish links with all packet-based (ATM, IP, and microwave) services and receive satellite signals, the NetVX system makes it efficient and cost-effective to move media between physically disparate locations.

The NetVX Gigabit Ethernet module is a hot-swappable, plug-in module that provides high-speed Ethernet/IP connectivity. It allows operators to distribute large numbers of MPEG streams over ubiquitous Ethernet/IP. The module is ideal for broadcasters who need to transfer MPEG streams and files between sites and for content providers who would like to leverage cable and telecommunications services that use Ethernet/IP in their networking infrastructures.

The new module brings technology used by the telecommunications industry to broadcasters transitioning to digital. It supports up to 64 bi-directional MPEG streams over IP. It also features Forward Error Correction, which automatically corrects for packet loss often found in networks.
