IP network technology and infrastructure is evolving & with it the distribution of programme content is changing. Legacy SDI infrastructure & traditional networks, such as satellite, are being replaced by transmission over standard IP-based networks as high-speed IP infrastructures are becoming affordable and readily available.

As, Broadcasters seek ways to standardise on IP networks for their video transmission, regardless of video format, they must ensure both reliability and security of the highest quality live video through primary distribution networks.
Techex offers a number of high quality, resilient solutions for broadcast IP distribution systems whilst allowing a seamless transition from existing technologies, such as native SDI & ASI.

Furthermore, with a wide choice of video formats & codecs supported, you can balance both bandwidth efficiency & latency whilst ensuring the highest video quality at the chosen operating point.

Solutions enable conversion of video from/to native SDI and SDI over IP (both 2022-6 or ST 2110) with options to perform light compression such as JPEGXS, JPEG2000 & TICO through to more bandwidth efficient MPEG encoding/decoding using H.264 AVC & H.265 HEVC compression technologies.

These dedicated platforms, such as those from Appear TV & Nevion, are specifically designed for IP-centric operations and have high density video processing capabilities & high data rate IP interfaces with firewall grade IP security features.

Key operational features of these platforms include redundancy modes for service protection, hot swappable power supplies, modular form factor allowing simple in-service expansion, Web UI for configuration & monitoring.

With many customers looking to utilise existing IT infrastructure or move particular workflow functions to Cloud providers, software video processing solutions, such as Comprimato, may provide an alternative methodology to deploying a distribution solution.
