We're integrating standardized SMPTE 2022-6 IP support into every major product category we offer, so you can migrate to IP on your terms when it makes business sense for you. This includes cameras, switchers, routers, servers, replay and multiviewers. All while maintaining SDI support.
Densité IPG-3901: High Density SDI/IP Gateway for Densité 3 Platform Datasheet (GVB-1-0486O-EN-DS) File size: 2.0 MB, posted Oct 02 2018 The Densité IP Gateway (IPG-3901) plug-and-play modules from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, is a 3 RU module for the Densité 3 frame, which offers bidirectional IP/SDI conversion. The Gateway operates with 10 GigE audio/video video-over-IP, supporting 4K UHD/3G/HD/SD-SDI formats.
CHALLENGE: Create the world's first all-IP, UHD OB fleet.
SOLUTION: Grass Valley and Arena, with technology partner Cisco, designed a network topology using a spine and leaf configuration, based around a 2.88 Tb/s Nexus switch.
BENEFITS: OBX is completely flexible, format-wise, and can be configured for 4K UHD, 3G, HD, even SD, without the need to re-cable.
Lighter payload compared with Quad-SDI solutions, and equipment can be distributed more evenly around the OB truck (unlike a conventional SDI router).
Building an IP Fabric with Cisco Products Whitepaper by Chris Merrill, Senior Product Manager Infrastructure, Strategic Marketing
Alexandre Gagne, Senior Product Manager, Monitoring & Control, Strategic Marketing, (GVB-1-0620D-EN-WP) File size: 1.2 MB, posted Mar 05 2019 Cisco's IP fabric for media solution replaces what previously was the crosspoint section of an SDI router in live production studios with an IP-based infrastructure. The Cisco Nexus 9200/9300-EX platform switches in conjunction with the Cisco non-blocking multicast (NBM) algorithm (an intelligent traffic management algorithm) provide a reliable, scalable IP fabric for the broadcast industry. In addition, this IP fabric solution provides zero-drop multicast transport and support for PTP media profiles.
