At IBC2006, Pleora Technologies introduced EtherCast PL4453A, a multiport transport system that delivers digital broadcast video in real-time over Ethernet networks.
The EtherCast PL4453A is well suited for transporting SD and HD content over managed Layer 2 VLANs (virtual local-area networks).
Pleora’s EtherCast PL4453A is a flexible four-port system delivered in a standard 1RU enclosure. Each port functions as an independently addressable IP node, can be configured as either a receiver or transmitter and works with three different video formats: DVB-ASI (Digital Video Broadcast – Asynchronous Serial Interface), SD-SDI (Standard Definition –Serial Data Interface) and SDTi (Serial Digital Transport Interface, or SMPTE 305M).
Each PL4453A port auto-senses the format of the incoming ASI or SD/SDTi video signal, converts the video to IP and pumps it in real time over managed Ethernet LAN/WAN facilities.
