CX-4 Transport stream converter.
The CX-4 is a flexible 1U unit containing four independent transport stream converters, each of which can be user configured to convert between Transport Streams over IP to Asynchronous Serial Interface (TSoIP to ASI) or Asynchronous Serial Interface to Transport Streams over IP (ASI to IP). This flexibility ensures your capital costs to a minimum as you can be sure you always have the correct converter to hand.
Complying with both the DVB and SMPTE2022 standards the TSoIP interface supports Transport stream encapsulation, forward error correction and UDP/RTP de-encapsulation as defined by the SMPTE 2022 specification. Hence allowing you to match the resilience of your stream to the performance of your network.
This professional product is designed for easy and reliable operation. It is controlled via a GUI using the onboard web server which is on a separate IP interface to the TSoIP signals. The chassis is fitted with dual power supplies and adequate ventilation to ensure for reliable service in the broadcast environment.
For added flexibility the unit can be configure at manufacture with any combination of one to four converters.
Applications: For use in Terrestrial, Cable and Satellite broadcast systems.
