Robust SDI to IP conversion
The SDI6-IP-2110 IP gateway encapsulates SDI to IP to allow the transport of uncompressed video over IP networks.
Supporting the SMPTE ST 2110 essence-based suite of protocols and 31 SDI video standards, the SDI6-IP-2110 app converts up to six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s SDI input connections for output over 10GbE IP network interfaces, with stream duplication ability for redundant output flows.
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. The output flow configuration is on a per flow basis, allowing for ultimate flexibility in network addressing.
It's a software app
The future-proof SDI6-IP-2110 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.
Dealing with the video, audio and data
Video, audio and data are de-embedded and routed to the appropriate SMPTE ST 2110 encapsulators.
To tell receivers how to interpret what is contained in each flow and set the correct video, audio and data parameters, all outgoing flows have an exposed Session Description Protocol (SDP) adhering to IETF RFC 4566. Every ST 2110 output flow created by the SDI6-IP-2110 app will have a signal defined SDP.
Video flows are encapsulated to ST 2110-20 specification. The app employs user definable traffic shaping in accordance with ST 2110-21. Output flows may be configured per flow to use N, NL or Wide, which allows these flows to be compliant in any media network.
Audio stream encapsulation is configured via a user matrix that allows for routing of de-embedded audio as well as external digital audio (via Crystal Vision’s DIOP8 audio piggyback) to AES67 output flows in accordance with ST 2110-30 standards. AES3 over IP is supported for non-PCM streams adhering to ST 2110-31.
Data encapsulation conforms to ST 2110-40 standards. Flow generated SDP will include line numbers and offsets, when possible, to assist receivers tasked with rebuilding SDI HANC and VANC to SMPTE ST 291 ancillary data standards.
Timing and delay
Output flows are RTP timestamped using system Precision Time Protocol (PTP), adhering to the ST 2110-10 standard. PTP timing is universal to all output flows. PTP redundancy is achieved by a system master/backup setup configuration.
The output flow timing can be fully adjusted with respect to the system PTP 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).
An additional ten frames of 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-2110 includes signal status monitoring for peace of mind. The status indications available are video present, video format, video black, video frozen, PTP master and backup clock present, audio groups present and Incoming AES 1-8 audio present, with the SDI6-IP-2110 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.
All control is done remotely. The remote control and monitoring options for the SDI6-IP-2110 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. The SDI6-IP-2110 app will also support AMWA NMOS IS-04 for discovery and registration and IS-05 for device connection management.
Save rack space
Fitting in the standard Vision frames (currently available in 3U size), MARBLE-V1 is a space-saving 96mm x 325mm card that sits in one frame slot – allowing up to ten media processors in 3U. The double slot VR06 frame rear modules is used to access the inputs and outputs on the SDI6-IP-2110 app.

ST 2110-21 traffic shaping on output flows may be configured per flow to use N, NL or Wide
Any IP output can be assigned to either of two 10GbE IP network interfaces. Typical use might have the second 10GbE IP network interface used as the protected output for link redundancy, 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
SDI to ST 2110 IP encapsulator, encapsulates SDI to IP to allow for signal transportation over 10GbE IP networks
Each encapsulated output flow will contain a signal defined Session Description Protocol detailing the parameters of the flow
Any output flow can be routed to either network
