IQMIX40

3G/HD/SD-SDI Multichannel IP Transceiver

The IQMIX40 is a 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 enables the IQMIX40 to encode or decode up to 16 SDI signals and transport them over two 10 GbE or 40 GbE links (SMPTE ST 2022-7). It provides frame-synchronized SDI outputs and both compressed and uncompressed modes of IP operation.

FEATURES

  • Handles up to 16 SDI signals over dual 10 GbE or dual 40 GbE IP links (dependent on Ethernet rate, SDI signal format and compressed or uncompressed transport mode)
  • 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
  • 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 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 Black Burst / 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 2 frames of video delay, and up to 255 ms of audio delay
  • Supports unicast as well as IGMPv3 source specific multicast, allowing point to point operation or transmission in multicast groups
  • Standards supported:
    • 3G-SDI to SMPTE ST 424/SMPTE ST 425 level A compatible
    • HD-SDI to SMPTE ST 292/SMPTE ST 274/SMPTE ST 296
    • SD-SDI to SMPTE ST 259-C
    • 10G & 40G Ethernet to IEEE 802.3
  • RollCall control and monitoring compatible with standard logging and reporting features
