Artel Video Systems, a provider of innovative real-time multimedia delivery solutions, has partnered with DirectOut Technologies at IBC2018 to demonstrate IP interoperability between Artel’s Quarra PTP Ethernet switch and DirectOut’s MONTONE.42 converter that bridges MADI to audio over IP.

The Quarra 10G switch is the central network switch for DirectOut’s entire booth. As such, it must deal with the diverse requirements of the devices involved. It serves as a boundary clock for two Montone.42 devices demonstrating SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy streaming as well as Genelec speakers with a Ravenna interface. At the same time, control data from the DirectOut Globcon control software is present in the network to control all devices on display — some of which contain management ports with only 100 megabytes per second of throughput. In a separate VLAN, DirectOut will show its SG.MADI using the Layer 2-based SoundGrid format by Waves Audio.

The Quarra family of PTP-enabled switches offers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588-compliant timing and synchronization. The switches support SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2059-2, permitting interoperable use of IP-based media equipment with conventional genlocked SDI equipment. The Quarras are Ravenna AES67- and QSC-approved and Dante-tested. Quarra switches are designed for audio and video broadcast, telecom, defense and security, finance, and other IT applications in which accurate timing and control are required.

“We’ve been using Artel’s 1G Quarra in our lab for quite a while, and we are excited to have the 10G version in our demo setup now. The detailed configuration possibilities really help to configure a reliable network and take care of the various requirements of the products involved,” said Claudio Becker-Foss, product manager at DirectOut. “We’ve seen before at plug fests and interops that the Artel switches are rock-solid when it comes to audio streaming and PTP distribution, even in big media networks including video. As a manufacturer, it is important for us to recommend a proven product to our customers. We have never come across any issues with the Quarras, and they have served as problem-solvers more than once.”

“As broadcasters migrate to IP, standards-based solutions that provide high reliability, flexibility, interoperability, and accurate synchronization are imperative for mission-critical media feeds,” said Rafael Fonseca, VP, product management at Artel. “Partnering with DirectOut at IBC2018 validates the efforts of vendors like Artel and DirectOut in developing standards-based solutions for audio-over-IP applications.”

Artel Video Systems, a provider of real-time multimedia delivery solutions, is unveiling its xView Management Platform.

xView is a browser-based, network-level monitoring platform that aids operators in managing Artel’s DigiLink, InfinityLink, and SMART Media Delivery Platform solutions. The platform is designed to support various network monitoring architectures: national, regional, and/or local operations.

xView monitors Artel’s network elements via SNMPv2 and provides an aggregate view of DigiLink and InfinityLink chassis on the network in a dashboard, displaying the locations and status of alarms in easy-to-read maps, graphs, and charts. End users can quickly locate faults and then launch DL Manager and IL Manager sessions from within xView for fault and performance diagnostics, configuration, and management. Users may add or upgrade the platform’s functionality via software download.

“As the industry continues to implement more IP-centric workflows, operational efficiency, network monitoring, and cost-effective solutions become paramount,” said Rafael Fonseca, Artel VP of product management. “The xView platform provides essential network-monitoring capabilities for those managing regional and national deployments of DigiLink, InfinityLink and SMART solutions.”

Artel will highlight the xView Management Platform in an IP network demonstration during IBC.
