AQORD *LINK — IP VIDEO encoder/decoder/transcoder—This is Digigram's new encoder/decoder/transcoder for high quality IP video and broadcast. Its applications include content contribution (point to point) from a live event to the studio, from one studio to another, from studio to transmitter, or delivery to a Content Distribution Network (CDN). AQORD *LINK is also ideal for IPTV distribution, typically for hospitality and ISP video distribution to end user STBs. Designed for SD/HD live streaming, the AQORD *LINK simultaneously processes two video channels per 1U/19" rack mounted chassis, with a built-in storage capacity of 1TB.
AQORD *LINK delivers broadcast-quality video at data rates from 0.5 to 20Mb/s from/to IP stream or internal hard drive to/from an SDI connection using MPEG-TS encapsulation. Three Gigabit Ethernet RTP-UDP/IP ports transmit/receive streams in either unicast or multicast for flexibility in broadcast, telecommunications, and contribution applications. Also provided is easy system management through the local HMI front panel or remotely from any web enabled PC or XML API. Users can start, stop, and manage up to 100 profiles remotely through the web interface, and monitor hardware status messages on chassis cooling temperatures, fan speeds, and alarms. AQORD *LINK delivers 99.99 percent operational reliability, and its advanced design concept ensures highly dependable performance, with low power consumption technology.
