ASI/SDI IP Encapsulator

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 7880IP-ASI-IP is a complete hardware based solution to transform ASI to IP, IP to ASI. Module can also pass SD SDI over IP via Dual GigE interface. The 7880IP-ASI-IP can also regenerate IP from IP input with different settings and add FEC. As more providers are trying to deliver contribution and distribution quality video over IP networks, the 7880IP-ASI-IP is capable of bridging traditional compressed world (ASI) with the standard IP networks.

Controlled by the industry leading VistaLINK® PRO, the 7880IP-ASI-IP offers signal providers the capability to encapsulate MPEG-2 transport stream payload to a unicast or multicast standardized IP stream. The 7880IP-ASI-IP is also capable of receiving IP stream and re-create ASI stream. For contribution application, the 7880IP-ASI-IP offers industry standard FEC support for encapsulation or de-encapsulation.

The 7880IP-ASI-IP occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.
