The way to solve IP problems

Broadcasters are discovering they have all sorts of new issues to solve using IP – and the IP-IP-2022
could be the ideal product to solve them.

With the ability to make changes to network settings, the IP-IP-2022 de-encapsulates and re-encapsulates video (up to six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s) between up to four bi-directional uncompressed 10GbE IP network interfaces, with flexible assignment of the flows to the networks.

There is a choice of fibre modules for the fibre SFP+ 10GbE IP network interfaces: either 850nm multi-mode for up to 300m or 1310nm single-mode for up to 10km.

Supporting the SMPTE ST 2022-6 and ST 2022-7 protocols and 31 SDI video standards,the IP-IP-2022 includes full VLAN support with no restrictions. Whatever the packet distribution on the input, traffic shaping on the output will ensure that any downstream devices will accept the flow.

What can you use it for?

The IP-IP-2022 has the flexibility to be useful in many applications.

It can be used for network address translation – ideal for connecting systems with conflicting IP addresses.

It can be used to translate unicast addresses to multicast addresses – useful for those who want to distribute IP encapsulated video flows.

It can be used for SMPTE ST 2022-6 to ST 2022-7 protocol translation.

It can be used as a media firewall providing security isolation – ensuring that only the media payload is transferred between two VLANs.

It's a software app

App cloudThe future-proof IP-IP-2022 is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor – purpose-built video over IP hardware that fits in the Vision frames. Apps that are bought with the hardware can be replaced with different low-cost apps as needs change, helping you make the most of your budget. No other IP products make it quite so easy for your systems to grow and mature with the transition.

More about MARBLE-V1

Featuring a powerful CPU/GPU processor, the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware has six bi-directional SDI connections, four 10GbE SFP+ network interface ports and eight bi-directional discrete AES stereo channels. The software app installed determines the functionality. App licences are tied to the MARBLE hardware and are for the life of the app until the owner releases or transfers a licence.

Clean switching between flows

There are six routers which allow clean switching of the network input flows to the network output flows. Any of the input flows can be routed to any output flow.

Choice of timing sources

Input flow sources are synchronised to a common reference timing source prior to IP encapsulation for clean switching of input flows to output flows. The IP-IP-2022 supports Precision Time Protocol (PTP) in addition to the Vision frame's two analogue references as a timing source, with user configurable options for timing source priority and redundancy. The chosen reference is the global reference source for all input flows and output flows.

There are five options for the reference selection, selectable via VisionWeb. (See the Specification for full details.) Should the timing source at the top of the list become missing or invalid, the card will move down the list until it finds a valid timing reference source.

The output timing can be fully adjusted with respect to the chosen reference using three time-based controls (0 - 42ms adjustable in 0.1ms steps, 0 - 100us adjustable in 1us steps and 0 - 1us adjustable in 5ns steps), with the selected timing alignment global to all output flows.

An additional ten frames of video delay (adjustable in one frame steps) allows compensation for any big system delays and can be configured individually for each output flow.

Flag up faulty signals

The IP-IP-2022 includes signal status monitoring for peace of mind. The status indications available are video present, video format, video black, video frozen, Reference 1 and 2 present, Reference 1 and 2 format, Reference 1 and 2 incompatible format, PTP master and backup clock present and audio groups present, with the IP-IP-2022 able to provide warnings of any problems via SNMP traps.

The video black and video frozen parameters can be delayed by 2-60 seconds before an alarm is asserted to prevent false alarming during brief video pauses.

The IP flow monitoring on the input flows includes packet loss, duplicated packets and packet delay variation.

Flexible control

All control is done remotely. The remote control and monitoring options for the IP-IP-2022 app running on the MARBLE-V1 media processor include an integrated control panel on the Vision 3 frame, the VisionPanel remote control panel, the SBB-4 smart button box, SNMP and the VisionWeb web browser control.

FLOW INPUTS

Video is de-encapsulated from 10GbE IP networks

Four fibre SFP+ 10GbE IP network interfaces. Choice of fibre modules: either 850nm multi-mode (for up to 300m) or 1310nm single-mode (for up to 10km)

Three 3Gb/s or six HD or SD video

De-encapsulated inputs can be different standards but must be same frame rate

The video formats supported are 625i, 525i, 720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60, 1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080p50, 1080p59.94, 1080p60, 1080PsF23.98, 1080PsF24, 1080PsF25, 1080PsF29.97, 1080PsF30, 2048x1080p23.98*, 2048x1080p24*, 2048x1080p25*, 2048x1080p29.97*, 2048x1080p30*, 2048x1080PsF23.98*, 2048x1080PsF24*, 2048x1080PsF25*, 2048x1080PsF29.97*, 2048x1080PsF30* (*= YUV 4:2:2 10 bit)

If the input is 3Gb/s then flows 1, 3 and 5 should be used and flows 2, 4 and 6 should be disabled

Packet distribution is not important as variable input buffer will compensate for any timing irregularities

Protocols supported on network interfaces: SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7, IGMPv3, ARP, ICMP ping, IPv4, IEEE802.1q, VLAN, IEEE802.3-2012 (10G Ethernet). Further SMPTE 2022 protocols will follow via a software upgrade

Any network can be routed to any input flow

The 10GbE IP network interfaces can be used as the protected input for SMPTE ST 2022-7 seamless protection switching, which protects the stream from lost packets by creating two streams of the same data using different routing to the destination. Flow analyser handles the analysis and reconstruction of the protected stream

Alternatively IP inputs can be distributed on the physical 10GbE connections. Any input can be multicast or unicast

FLOW OUTPUTS

Video is encapsulated to IP to allow for signal transportation over 10GbE IP networks

Four fibre SFP+ 10GbE IP network interfaces. Choice of fibre modules: either 850nm multi-mode (for up to 300m) or 1310nm single-mode (for up to 10km)

Protocols supported on network interfaces: SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE ST 2022-7, IGMPv3, ARP, ICMP ping, IPv4, IEEE802.1q, VLAN, IEEE802.3-2012 (10G Ethernet). Further SMPTE ST 2022 protocols will follow via a software upgrade

Any output flow can be routed to any network

The 10GbE IP network interfaces can be used as the protected output for SMPTE ST 2022-7 seamless protection switching, which protects the stream from lost packets by creating two streams of the same data using different routing to the destination. SMPTE ST 2022-7 flow protection facilitates the dual stream output Alternatively it is possible to have a unicast on some network interfaces and a multicast on others

Any output flow can be routed to any outgoing net or protected network

The video loss controls allow the user to select what will happen to an output flow in the event that the input is lost. The user can specify to freeze the last good frame or show a black or blue screen or 100% colour bars (with or without an initial delay of three seconds). No output can also be selected. This is independently adjustable on each output flow

The test pattern controls allow the user to override an input and force the output flow to output colour bars, blue or black or freeze the picture – useful during installation when input signals may not yet be applied. This is independently adjustable on each output flow

Traffic shaping is employed for compliance of output data rates

ROUTING

There are six routers which allow clean switching of the network input flows to the network output flows

Any of the input flows can be routed to any output flow. The default setting is Input Flow 1 to Output Flow 1, Input Flow 2 to Output Flow 2, Input Flow 3 to Output Flow 3, Input Flow 4 to Output Flow 4, Input Flow 5 to Output Flow 5 and Input Flow 6 to Output Flow 6

TIMING ADJUSTMENTS

Video sources are synchronised to common reference timing source prior to output switches for clean switching of input flows to output flows

Choice of timing options:

  • PTP (SMPTE 2059-2) master and backup, via 10GbE IP network interface
  • Two tri-level syncs or analogue Black and Burst references (Reference 1 and Reference 2), connected via the Vision 3 frame

Chosen reference is the global reference source for all input flows and output flows

There are five options for the reference selection, selectable via VisionWeb. The hierarchy runs from left to right – should the timing source at the top of the list become missing or invalid, the card will move down the list until it finds a valid timing reference source:

  • PTP>Ref1>Ref2>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref1>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref2>Ref1>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref2>Freerun
  • PTP>Freerun

(“PTP” means PTP Master>PTP Backup)

When Auto relock enable is selected, the card will automatically relock when a lost reference is restored. Selecting Force lock (with Auto relock disabled) will force the synchroniser to relock after a reference is restored, and can be activated at a non-critical time to avoid video disturbance

PTP health is monitored and can be used to raise SNMP alarm

The PTP statistics reported include network delay, delay variation, reference offset and sync period

Output timing can be fully adjusted with respect to the reference using three time-based controls: 0 - 42ms adjustable in 0.1ms steps, 0 - 100us adjustable in 1us steps and 0 - 1us adjustable in 5ns steps. Sub frame timing alignment to chosen reference is global to all output flows

An additional ten frames of video delay (adjustable in one frame steps) allows compensation for any big system delays. This delay can be configured individually for each output flow

ANCILLARY DATA

All ancillary data is passed from input to output

LED INDICATION OF:

Power okay

MONITORING

Checks can be performed on the following video and audio parameters, with warnings of any problems provided via SNMP traps:

  • Video present
  • Video format
  • Video black
  • Video frozen
  • Reference 1 and 2 present
  • Reference 1 and 2 format
  • Reference 1 and 2 incompatible format
  • PTP master and backup clock present
  • Audio group 1 present
  • Audio group 2 present
  • Audio group 3 present
  • Audio group 4 present

The video black and video frozen parameters can be delayed by 2-60 seconds before an alarm is asserted to prevent false alarming during brief video pauses

The following IP parameters are monitored for input flows:

  • Packet loss
  • Duplicated packets
  • Packet delay variation. Shown as the skew (difference in time of packet arrival) between the main and protected input, and also as the min and max nano second gap between the packets on each input

REMOTE CONTROL

Software:

VisionWeb Control is available via the web server on the frame and allows control and monitoring using a standard web browser on a computer, tablet or phone

SNMP monitoring and control available as standard

Control using ASCII and JSON protocols

Hardware:

Control from integrated control panel on Vision 3 frame

Control from VisionPanel 3U remote panel

SBB-4 smart button box connects to the frame via Ethernet and provides four programmable LCD switches (which are configured for each order). The SBB-4 uses information from VisionWeb for settings. Uses Power over Ethernet so must be used with PoE enabled switch
