Macnica Americas Releases Multi-Channel High Definition Video over 10G Ethernet Transport Device
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Macnica Americas has released the MAI3140, a silicon transceiver capable
of transporting up to 8 channels of SDI video over a standard 10Gb
Ethernet network. The device comes in transmit and receive versions to
allow a complete Ethernet link to be implemented. Forward error
correction is added to the transmitted data making the link lossless -
important to prevent dropped video frames and video flickering and / or
The device accepts video in the form of 3G-SDI, HD-SDI or SD-SDI,
encapsulates the video streamsin UDP (News - Alert)/IP + RTP, adds error correction
and transmits the traffic through a standard XAUI 10GbE interface. A
companion device receives the data, performs any needed error correction
and outputs the video streams in the format received.
The device is fully compliant with SMPTE2022 clause 1/2 and 5/6 ensuring
compatibility with any third party equipment also using the standard.
The amount of forward error correction can be varied by increasing the
FEC matrix stored in external memory and a per-channel basis.
Applications for the device include broadcast video transport equipment,
video switching in studios, remote surgical applications, surveillance
and aggregation of multiple HD camera streams to a single storage device
The MAI3140 is available immediately.
