One of the main products on display will be Artel’s InfinityLink broadcast media transport solution, which is designed for transporting broadcast-quality media over IP, direct fiber and managed optical networks. One of the models on display will be the IL6000, a 1RU, four-slot chassis with internal 20x20 3G routing and Ethernet switching capabilities and features on-board chassis management.

InfinityLink models ILC450 and ILC410 will also be shown, adding seamless IP capabilities to the InfinityLink platform. The ILC450 supports auto-sensing of standards-based, broadcast quality HD/SD-SDI and ASI video formats, while also featuring SMPTE 2022-1/2/5/6 IP encapsulation and optional Forward Error Correction algorithms to enable flexible configurations. The ILC450 also has a 1GigE IP interface for end users to bridge IP data for greater bandwidth utilization of the 10G Ethernet interface. The ILC410, meanwhile, enables DVB-ASI and SD-SDI video to be transported over IP networks.

Also set to be shown during the conference is Artel’s DLC510 L-band satellite demodulator and automatic L-band satellite scanner. Operators using the scanner can locate active signals on a satellite and display signals in an easy-to-read list with other essential data. Additional features include dual RF inputs, DVB-S2X support, ETSI Carrier ID transmission coding and full integration into the InfinityLink and DigiLink media transport platforms.

A technology showcase for the 3500 series of FiberLink 4K/UHD systems is also set.
