The GatesAir Intraplex IP Link 200A allows broadcasters to interconnect studios and remote locations, including transmitter sites, using the AES67 standard or any of today’s encoding algorithms across wide-area IP networks. Its signal originates signal transport from the broadcaster’s IT infrastructure for the management of contribution and distribution over IP networks.
The IP Link 200A codec interconnects AES67 and analog/AES3 signals simultaneously, and enables conversion between the two formats. GatesAir says the unit’s design simplifies the cabling and interconnection requirements from codecs to the wide area network, and provides users with a “true” AES67 AoIP device that is interoperable with AoIP solutions including WheatNet-IP, Ravenna and Livewire+.
Among features integrated in the IP Link 200A is the GatesAir’s Dynamic Stream Splicing software, which the company explains, mitigates IP packet loss and eliminates off-air time through multiple redundant streams. Dynamic Stream Splicing borrows data from these redundant streams, which can live on the same network or separate paths.
