Multichannel SDI/IP Gateway Application for XIP-3911 and XIP-3901

The XIP-3911-IP application is a high-performance, versatile gateway which can encapsulate or de-capsulate up to 16 SDI signals (depending on format) to/from uncompressed SMPTE ST 2110. UHD support is provided for both SDI and SMPTE ST 2110, enabling a seamless transition from SDI<->IP for all system architectures. Multiple SMPTE ST 2110-30 audio flows per channel can be configured to support 1x16 channels, 2x8 channels or 4x4 channels of embedding/de-embedding to/from SDI. The high density allows 192 (96 SDI->IP and 96 IP->SDI) gateways per 4 RU Densité 3+ FR4 frame, saving substantial rack space in high channel count environments. Its scalability through modularity is the ideal...
