IQUCP50 GATEWAY & MV APPLICATIONS

Universal Compute Processor for 50GbE IP Systems

The IQUCP50 is a user-configurable multichannel video-over-IP transceiver developed for use within low latency and high bandwidth Ethernet IP networks. Using RTP VSF TR-03 (SMPTE ST 2110), TR-04 and SMPTE ST 2022-6 encoding and encapsulation schemes, along with clause 74 FEC, enables the IQUCP50 to encode or decode up to 16 SDI signals and transport them over redundant 50 GbE links (SMPTE ST 2022-7) with either dual or single port options.

To enable hardware processing flexibility, IQUCP50 has a variety of Software Defined Cores (SDCs) available that can be purchased and loaded as operational needs demand. SDCs can be installed...

FEATURES

Key Features
  • Supports configuration of Ethernet links for maximum signal transport using both SFPs or (for dual link mode) to provide link redundancy as per SMPTE ST 2022-7, and when operating as a receiver will dynamically adapt to any stream presented to it
  • Supports unicast as well as IGMPv3 source specific multicast, allowing point-to-point operation or transmission in multicast groups, and forward error correction with clause 74 (Base-R) FEC
  • Standards supported:
    • 3G-SDI to SMPTE ST 424/425 level A compatible
    • HD-SDI to SMPTE ST 292/274/296
    • SD-SDI to SMPTE ST 259-C
    • 50G Ethernet to IEEE 802.3
  • RollCall control and monitoring compatible with standard logging and reporting features
Essence Processing (EP) Features
  • Handles up to 16 SDI signals over dual 50 GbE IP links with dual and single port rear panel options
  • Multiple transport types available for each SDI input including:
  • Compressed IP transport using SMPTE ST 2042 (VC2) low-latency high-quality encoding profile
  • Uncompressed video transport using either VSF TR-03 (SMPTE ST 2110) and TR-04 RTP, or SMPTE ST 2022-6 encapsulation
  • PCM audio using TR-03 & AES67
  • SMPTE ST 2110-40 metadata support via IETF standard “RTP Payload for Ancillary Data”
  • Supports frame synchronized SDI inputs and outputs, with audio rate adaption, referenced to either IEEE-1588v2 (PTP) network timing (compliant with SMPTE ST 2059-2) or via the IQH3B or IQH4B frame’s analog reference bus for blackburst/tri-level syncs
  • Includes 4K UHD quad link mode for 3G SQD or 2SI signal transport
  • Low delay mode and Independent H & V offset available for each channel along with up to two frames of video delay, and up to 255 ms of audio delay

 

Signal Monitoring (SM) Features
  • 12x4 multiviewer capability with signal monitoring license
