Universal Network Adapter
The Eagle AE-1, the latest member of our product range, supports transport of MPEG-Streams over Ethernet/IP as well as SDH or PDH networks. In its basic configuration the Eagle provides 8 DVB-ASI channels, configurable as input or output, 2 * 1GE interfaces (1000BaseT/X), 8 * MPEG-TS switches and analyzers. Additional hardware modules for SDH (1 * STM-16 / OC-48c or 2 * STM-1/4 / OC-3c/12c), PDH (4 * E3/DS3), and 2 * 1GE are available.
SDH- and PDH network adapters
The wide choice of supported services and scalable bandwidth enables the design of a transport platform exactly matching your requirements. Merlin MK-II is a compact and cost-effective network adapter for transmission of up to 6xMPEG-TS over PDH, SDH, ATM or dark fiber networks, ideal suited for installations with single, non-redundant network access. Transparent MPEG stream handling supports operation in SFN applications. atecom´s™ Falcon AF-32 carries multiple services (ASI, E1/T1, ETH etc) over contribution and distribution networks using PDH, SDH, ATM and dark fiber. It is the perfect solution for complex network layouts ensuring with its intransigent redundancy concept highest reliability in 24/7 operation.
Transparent MPEG stream handling and superior clock recovery supports operation in SFN applications. The ASI/IP gateway series from atecom include Birdie DV-2 MK-II and Eagle AE-1. Birdie DV-2 is a full featured, compact1/2 19” 2-port DVB-ASI/IP network adaptor and perfectly suits for small studios, transmitter sites, event locations, and OB-VANs being covered by an Ethernet network connection. For a higher port density up to 8 x ASI ports, redundancy, and additional functionalities, like seamless switching, choose our Eagle AE-1. Both come with 1000BaseT/X network interface.
Advanced MPEG-TS Protection Switches
atecom™ provides one of the most advanced MPEG-TS protection switching functionality available in the market. It prevents from service outages caused by equipment failure or errors being introduced by disturbed transmission lines. This powerful feature set is available for DVB-ASI as compact 1/2 1RU with one MPEG-TS switch (Raven AR-1) or as plug-in module for our Falcon AF-32 series. The Eagle AE-1 provides 8 internal MPEG-TS switches, where the input streams for the switches can be provided via DVB-ASI, IP, SDH, or PDH.
