Path 1 introduces Chameleon vidXwan multi-port, bidirectional IP video router
Path 1 Network Technologies has introduced the Chameleon vidXwan, a multi-port, bidirectional, real-time IP video router for live broadcast applications.
Designed for flexible use, the Chameleon vidXwan enables broadcaster to distribute live, real-time, broadcast-quality MPEG-2 video in both standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) format to remote locations over fiber networks.
Using standards-based encapsulation and forward error correction (FEC) techniques, the Chameleon vidXwan supports the Pro-MPEG code of practice for live broadcast applications.
The Chameleon vidXwan is capable of simultaneously transmitting and receiving up to four input and four output video feeds. Using advanced synchronization algorithms, the Chameleon vidXwan specifically addresses the technical challenges associated with delivering broadcast-quality video over IP. By shielding the video signals from severe network impairments, such as jitter, packet loss and out of order packet delivery, the Chameleon vidXwan meets the quality video standard of broadcasters.
