Designed for use in video distribution applications, MDC-4570 network interface adapters from IRT Electronics are ASI to ASI data transcoders for converting between MPEG2 Transport Stream formats.
Capable of operating at ASI rates from 2 Mb/s to the full 213 Mb/s rate, these network interface adapters are particularly useful for protecting ASI streams when interfacing through various types of links.
When set up for encoding, they can perform:
- 188 to 204 byte conversions
- RS encoding; and
When set up for decoding, MDC-4570 network interface adapters can perform:
- RS correction
- Descrambling; and
- 204 to 188 byte conversion.
When used in an IRT frame fitted with the appropriate capabilities, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is available for monitoring of switch settings and signal parameters.
