Product ManualManual

The 7880R2x1-IP-CS is a complete hardware base solution for MPEG-2 transport stream redundancy switching. By providing automatic smart switching of the main signal to a back up signal, the 7880R2x1-IP-CS offers protection to digital compressed signals over IP without causing a downstream disturbance.

For high density (multiple MPTS per gigE input) the device also supports a cutthrough Unbuffered switching mode.

The 7880R2x1-IP-CS is built from the broadly deployed and industry leading 7880R2x1-ASI-CS.

Controlled by the industry leading VistaLINK® PRO, the 7880R2x1-IP-CS offers signal providers the capability to design automatic redundancy into their system and alarm the operator the second a problem arises. By constantly monitoring the incoming signals, the 7880R2x1-IP-CS is capable of knowing when the signals reach a point where they are no longer suitable for broadcast and automatically switches to a backup feed.

The user can customize all monitored and switching rules to meet Broadcast, Cable, Satellite and IPTV needs.
