The Densité IP Gateway (IPG-3901) plug-and-play modules 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. The IPG-3901 v2.3 gateway module furthers the end-to-end support of IP for Grass Valley product lines by now offering support for Video Services Forum Technical Recommendation 04 (VSF TR-04), enabling independent routing of AES audio alongside SMPTE ST 2022-6 video and interconnection to audio devices supporting AES67 open standard for audio over IP.
With the addition of intoPIX TICO mezzanine encoding and decoding option on the gateway, customers have a convenient way to add 4K to their workflow and move 4K across the production facility. TICO mezzanine compression is visually lossless 4:1 compression, which is lightweight and fast, perfectly suitable for live production. The IPG-3901 with purchasable TICO option provides either two (2) encodes OR two (2) decodes OR one (1) encode and one (1) decode per card.
Bidirectional transport of 4K UHD/3G/HD/SD-SDI video signal over 10 GigE port
TR-04 support where each video signal is converted using SMPTE ST 2022-6 along with AES67 de-embedding/embedding of up to 16 audio channels per I/O
Redundancy mode with full compliance of SMPTE ST 2022-7 Class A of all IP essences where each module connects up to 3x3 3G or 5x5 HD/SD signals
Aggregation mode where both network ports are combined for a total IP bandwidth of 20 GigE:
Provides higher 3G transmission capability per IPG-3901 card such as the transfer of 4K UHD uncompressed over Quad Link 3G using a single IPG-3901 card
In this mode, bidirectional I/O for 2 inputs, 2 outputs and 7 bidirectional I/Os for up to 11 streams
Large frame buffer on every IP receiver provides support for server originated bursty sources
All SDI outputs are aligned with respect to the module reference for precise timing adjustment ensuring signal stability
Supports multicast loopback with SDI output alignment
Support of PTP on the media port with fail-over redundancy for AES67 streams. Supports both AES67 and SMPTE ST 2059 profiles
Support of DiffServ for network traffic provides categorization of flows into QoS classes
Flexible SD/URS reference input
Compatible with Densité 3 and 3+ platforms
Integrates with iControl and GV Convergent SDN control frameworks
IGMPv3 support for IP inputs
Supports unicast and multicast signals
Features dual-network interfaces supporting 10 GigE SFP+ with either:
Short range multi-mode optical connectors
Long range single-mode optical connectors
Direct attach copper assemblies
Active optical cables and optical transceiver
TICO 4K 1-wire option:
IPG-3901-OPT-TICO — this is a purchasable option that gives dual TICO codec option for 4K 1-wire support
Quad Link 3G in 2SI and square division supported as per SMPTE ST 425-5
Simultaneous HD and 4K
TICO is intoPIX Profile 1 with visually lossless 4:1 low-latency compression

The broadcast industry’s first Glass-to-Glass IP solution for production studios and broadcast operations centers has been introduced by Grass Valley, a Belden Brand. Our solutions are “Glass-to-Glass” because they offer video-over-IP connectivity (SMPTE 2022-6) across all the key stages of production, from acquisition to control room monitoring. This spans cameras, routing, gateways plus control and monitoring, along with servers, production switching and multiviewers. TICO 4:1 visually lossless compression is also supported in our cameras and production switchers to enable 4K in both SDI and IP infrastructures.
