Artel Video Systems has introduced built-in genlock synchronisation functionality for the SMART Media Delivery Platform used in the company’s DigiLink and InfinityLink systems. Enabling a SMART JPEG-2000 decoder to accept a reference SDI sync input and align the video signals being decoded, this new feature supports frame synchronisation of incoming video sources to a local timing source without the need for an external frame-sync device.
“We’re always working to increase operational and functional simplicity for our customers, and the addition of genlock synchronisation to our SMART Media Delivery Platform is a great example of this commitment,” said Rafael Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management, Artel Video Systems. “When frame synchronisation of signals is essential for further processing, this feature reduces both the cost and complexity of signal processing.”
The SMART Media Delivery Platform four-channel, auto-sensing, 3G/HD/SD-SDI-over-IP, multifunction gateway attaches seamlessly to the IP network to facilitate fully transparent carriage of 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI, including audio and ancillary data, without the need for external network elements. Now offering genlock synchronisation as a standard feature, the platform makes it even easier to handle Quad 3G-SDI 4K video signals.
Genlock synchronisation will be available on the SMART Media Delivery Platform in July.
