Artel Video Systems to Demonstrate New Capabilities for DigiLink Platform at CCW
Artel Video Systems will be demonstrating new fully integrated capabilities available in the DigiLink modular platform at CCW 2013, booth 709 in New York, November 13-14.
Artel will be showcasing enhanced features and functionality in the DigiLink platform, the industry’s most flexible and cost-effective solution for transporting broadcast-quality media across IP, optical networks, and direct fiber. The platform’s unique design integrates optical and IP transport, JPEG2000 compression, and video and Ethernet routing in a compact, cost-effective package. DigiLink offers broadcasters and video service providers a single, flexible, media transport platform capable of operating in any environment or network infrastructure.
“Our industry is demanding new simplified solutions for transporting contribution-quality video feeds and data traffic across all types of terrestrial networks. It also needs the ability to quickly and easily reconfigure local and remote equipment for changing requirement, formats, and available networks,” said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. “The DigiLink platform with its ability to adapt to different formats, multiple transport options, ease of deployment and support, and history of reliability is the ideal solution for those applications.”
