DMG 4100/4200 High Capacity Digital Media Gateway

Call for Price

The Sencore DMG 4100/4200 platform is a dedicated solution for high speed video networking, enhanced IP security, video distribution and contribution. Designed for near limitless capacity, extensive video awareness, enhanced security, operational simplicity and exceptionally high
reliability, the platform redefines video delivery.
With IP network technology and infrastructure evolving, the distribution of video is changing. Dedicated coax-based SDI infrastructure are being replaced by transmission over standard IP-based networks. With 10G and 100G IP infrastructures available, broadcasters seek ways to use the added capacity, primarily for internal uncompressed or lightly compressed video contribution.
Specifically designed for IP-centric operations, the DMG 4100/4200 chassis has a significant video processing capacity. 10G bi-directional IP interfaces provide firewall-grade IP security at every connection node. Operating at a minimum internal throughput of 140G, the new backplane extends Sencore’s tradition of patented redundancy options. Service density can be defined up to 2,000 services in and out per module.
The DMG platform supports conversion of uncompressed video between legacy SDI and to/from SDI over IP with options to perform “light” compression/decompression using intracodecs such as TICO and JPEG2000 or full encoding/decoding using AVC or HEVC. With backplane latency of less than 1ms, universal applicability for virtually any video application is ensured, as is the implementation of both current and future IP video standards, including VSF-TR03, VSF-TR04 and SMPTE2110.

The DMG platform has been developed to exploit new opportunities driven by the increasing deployment of ultra-high speed IP networks within all areas of broadcasting. Designed to meet all challenges that a full IP-based infrastructure presents, the platform features:
  • High Speed
    Multiple bi-directional 10G interfaces with the ability to route up to 140G of traffic internally.
  • Delay
    Low backplane latency (below 1ms) making overall contribution to delay negligible.
  • MPEG & Native Handling
    The ability to handle native IP, MPEG-2 TS with MPEG-DASH, MPEG-H MMT coming in future releases. Will also accommodate new standards not currently defined.
  • IP Network Security
    A video centric, cost-effective, easy to deploy, high-capacity firewall feature that can monitor and regenerate traffic as required.
  • Capacity
    Most modules support up to 4,000 (2,000 in and 2,000 out) streams / services per module and 10G of traffic.
  • Monitoring & Control
    A management system to control a potentially vast array of linear and on-demand service traffic effectively, as traditional IPTV / OTT worlds merge.
  • SDI to IP
    A high-density SDI input / output module supporting SMPTE 2022-6 and ASI with optional seamless TS packet switching.
  • Access Control
    A new standard of access control, user management and IP security to secure access to critical network devices. A user account with four different access levels can be defined per user.
  • Redundancy
    Designed to be as reliable and failsafe as possible, even when used stand-alone. The uniquely efficient, built for purpose hardware design is engineered for high reliability and stability. Should an internal failure take place, a range of redundancy options can take effect to keep the chassis fully operational. Dual active – active control/switch module redundancy with internal seamless traffic switching can optionally be deployed within the chassis to make recovery from many critical errors totally seamless.
