CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA – IPITEK, Inc. a premier provider of high-speed networking and transmission equipment for a wide range of US and international service providers, announced today that it launched its latest HD video and Ethernet multiplexing solution, the MSP-300. The MSP-300 is symbolizes IPITEK’s pursuit towards new level of service-oriented video networks. IPITEK’s MSP-300 is a new addition to the existing video transport family. Users of the MSP-300 can optimize their regional/national SD/HD/3G-SDI circuits by utilizing their capacities in carrying lower speed video services such as ASI, SD, HD, 3G video and 10 to 1000 Mbit/s Ethernet services. Depending on the rate of the network side video rate (trunk video), users of the MSP-300 can provide Ethernet as well as video services to their customers. Applications and customers include television and cable, service providers, studios and video post-production, government and producers of live events that do require private data connectivity services, typically in the form of Ethernet. As of today, these customers meet this requirement by buying costly Ethernet connections.
The MSP-300 supports many advanced features such as the transmission of two-way video trunks. Each video trunk carries a separate video signal. This feature allows broadcasters and carriers to support two-way transmission of video services using only one small platform, and thus, cut capital expenditure by half. In addition to supporting two-way Coax video trunks, the MSP-300 adds another dimension to its flexibility by supporting an optical fiber trunk link. Customers can switch back and forth from Coax trunk to optical trunk by simply flipping a selection switch.
The flexibility of the MSP-300 does not stop at support of Ethernet and video services over coax or fiber video networks. In addition to these features, the MSP-300 does not require the input/output video trunk ports or input/output video client ports to operate at the same video rate. In fact, customers can have differential video rates on different video ports. For example, it is possible that the one of the video trunks operate at 1.5Gb/s HD video (HD-SDI) while the other one (opposite direction) operate at 3.0Gb/s (3G-SDI) or 270 Mb/s (SD-SDI).
A major advantage and feature of the MSP-300 is its interoperability between video transport networks. The MSP-300 is interoperable when either Coax video trunk is used or fiber trunk is used. When Coax video trunk is used, the video signals generated are fully compliant with relevant video standards (SMPTE 259 for SD-SDI, SMPTE 292 for HD-SDI and SMPTE 424 for 3G-SDI). Even if a fiber trunk is used, the MSP-300 supports SMPTE standard optical interfaces (SFPs) that are developed mainly for carrying HD video signal.
