IP to IP translation

IP to IP translationCrystal Vision's unique IP to IP translators have been designed to help broadcasters solve IP challenges, providing a bridge between the ST 2022 and ST 2110 protocols as well as allowing changes to network settings.

Our IP products are software apps that run on the MARBLE-V1 media processor purpose-built video over IP hardware that fits in the Vision frames. Simply change the app when your needs change. No other IP products make it quite so easy for your systems to grow and mature with the transition.

The IP-IP-2022 (supporting SMPTE ST 2022) and IP-IP-2110 (supporting both SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022) translator apps de-encapsulate and re-encapsulate SDI video (up to six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s) between up to four bi-directional 10GbE IP network interfaces, with flexible assignment of the flows to the networks.

They can be used for network address translation ideal for connecting systems with conflicting IP addresses. They can be used to translate unicast addresses to multicast addresses useful for those who want to distribute IP encapsulated video flows. They can be used for protocol translation between SMPTE ST 2022-6 and ST 2022-7 using the IP-IP-2022, or between SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 using the IP-IP-2110. They can be used as a media firewall providing security isolation ensuring that only the media payload is transferred between two VLANs.

The IP to IP translator features include clean switching between flows, sophisticated synchroniser features, full PTP support, ten frames of video delay, unicast and multicast transmission support, signal and flow status monitoring for peace of mind and traffic shaping - as well as support for AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 on the 2110 app.
