The Ericsson MA5400 IP video gateway is a dense high quality MPEG-2 transport stream to IP encapsulator. Based on open standards, the MA5400 has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of post-production distribution and contribution applications where multiple transport streams are transported through a single connection over an IP-enabled network.
The MA5400 can be configured in either transmit, receive or bi-directional mode and enables multiple ASI feeds to be carried over an IP network. At the receive end, the MA5400 can convert the feed back to multiple ASI streams.
Due to the large number of video services a MA5400 can carry at any given time, the product has been equipped with the latest advances in error correction for maximum reliability through the implementation of SMPTE 2022 Pro-MPEG FEC.
The MA5400 enables operators to take advantage of the associated cost savings in using IP networks such as increased flexibility, triple play of real-time video, voice and data over a single network infrastructure.
Reliable broadcast quality transmission of content over IP networks is achieved through the implementation of SMPTE 2022 Pro-MPEG Forward Error Correction at the IP layer.
The RU chassis provides a compact solution for encapsulation/ de-encapsulation of MPEG-2 Transport Stream while enabling up to sixteen ASI SPTS/MPTS transport streams to be handled.
Control and Monitoring
The MA5400 can operate standalone through the use of the native integrated web interface or through Ericsson nCompass providing unit configuration and redundancy control in addition to high level monitoring. The MA5400 can provide a single point of presence on the network by providing data and in-band control via a single network connection.
