Artel to Showcase HD-SDI to JPEG2000 Compression Capabilities at IBC2013

WESTFORD, Mass. Aug. 5, 2013 Artel Video Systems, a leading global provider of broadcast-quality video transport solutions, will introduce an innovative new video compression module at IBC2013, stand 2.A20. The company's new DLC610 compresses HD-SDI into JPEG2000 then encapsulates the video, audio, and all ancillary data into a MPEG-2 TS transport stream and industry standard DVB-ASI.

"Users are looking for cost effective methods to transport HD-SDI signals across bandwidth limited networks. Leveraging JPEG2000 for compression and MPEG-2 TS encapsulated in DVB-ASI for transport, users now have a solution that will work across all standard video networks," said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. "This enables users to leverage their existing networks and infrastructure to transport HD-SDI at a much lower cost, and with much lower latency than was previously available."

The DLC610, which is user configurable as an encoder or decoder, is low-cost, simple to deploy, and tightly integrated into Artel Video System's DigiLink platform. It uses the state-of-the-art intoPIX(R) compression core to compress the video to an 80Mb/s to 180Mb/s JPEG2000 stream. Using a newly developed standard, the DLC610 combines compressed video with audio and ancillary data into a MPEG-2 TS transport stream, and finally encapsulates it into DVB-ASI. The resulting stream can then be transported over fiber links, Ethernet, and optical networks for decoding and delivery by a DLC610 or any other industry standard JPEG2000 decoder. An open, flexible design enables users to purchase the DLC610 as a low-cost standalone solution for integration into standard ASI equipment or into the DigiLink platform. NEBS Level 3 certification ensures reliable operation in harsh environments.
