Robust SDI to IP conversion

The SDI6-IP-2022 IP gateway encapsulates SDI to IP to allow the transport of uncompressed video over IP networks.

Supporting the SMPTE ST 2022-6 and ST 2022-7 protocols and 31 SDI video standards, the SDI6-IP-2022 converts up to six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s SDI input connections and allows flexible assignment of the converted flows to either of the two output 10GbE IP network interfaces.

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.

Features include full VLAN support with no restrictions and unicast and multicast transmission support.

It's a software app

App cloudThe future-proof SDI6-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.

Redundant streaming

The second 10GbE IP network interface 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.

Clean switching between flows

There are six SDI to output flow routers and any of the SDI sources can be routed to any output flow, with clean switching between flows. Any output flow can be routed to either network.

Choice of timing sources

SDI sources are synchronised to a common reference timing source prior to output flow routers and IP encapsulation for clean switching of sources into the encapsulation flow. The SDI6-IP-2022 supports Precision Time Protocol (PTP) in addition to the Vision frame's two analogue references or SDI inputs as a timing source, with user configurable options for timing source priority and redundancy. The chosen reference is the global reference source for all SDI inputs and output flows.

There are ten 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 SDI6-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 SDI6-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.

Flexible control

All control is done remotely. The remote control and monitoring options for the SDI6-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, SNMP and the VisionWeb web browser control.

VIDEO OUTPUTS

Two 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 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

Second 10GbE IP network interface 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

Alternatively it is possible to have a unicast on one 10GbE interface and a multicast on the other

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

VIDEO ENCAPSULATION

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

Any output flow can be routed to either network

Traffic shaping is employed for compliance of output data rates

SMPTE ST 2022-7 flow protection facilitates the dual stream output

ROUTING

There are six SDI to output flow routers

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

TIMING ADJUSTMENTS

SDI sources are synchronised to common reference timing source prior to output flow routers and IP encapsulation for clean switching of sources into encapsulation flow

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
  • SDI video input (defaults to SDI 1)

Chosen reference is the global reference source for all SDI inputs and output flows

There are ten 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>Ref1>Ref2>SDI>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref1>SDI>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref2>Ref1>SDI>Freerun
  • PTP>Ref2>SDI>Freerun
  • PTP>SDI>Freerun

("PTP” means PTP Master>PTP Backup. “SDI” means SDI1>SDI2>SDI3>SDI4> SDI5>SDI6)

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 noncritical time to avoid video disturbance

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

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
