XIP-3901 Application Platform

Agile Modular SDI/IP Processing Platform for Densité 3+

The Densité 3+ XIP-3901 is an agile processing platform that focuses on high-quality live production for HD, 1080p, 4K UHD and HDR. This platform is a bridge for the hybrid world, consisting of today’s proven SDI technology and the IP connectivity of tomorrow. To meet customers’ needs both now and in the future, the XIP-3901 uses a flexible “virtualized” hardware platform. Based on a powerful FPGA engine, the XIP-3901 can be reconfigured with software updates for different applications as requirements change.

The XIP-3901 agile processing platform with a rear XIP-3901-3+DRP comes with all the 12G/quad link 3G/3G/HD-SDI...
