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.
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.
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.
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.
