CP524

TS Adapter

The CP524 TS Adapter has been designed to meet the requirements of operators and service providers for flexible repacking, and delivery of content for multiple end points. Its multi-stream (any input to any output), filtering/remultiplexing features enable operators and service providers to save valuable bandwidth in their networks.

The variety of network infrastructures used in the broadcast industry today has also led to an increasing demand for network adaption and conversion between formats and interfaces. The CP524 solves these issues, for up to four transport streams, by offering powerful network adaption between ASI, IP, SONET/SDH and SMPTE 310.

As well as the filtering/remultiplexing and network adaptation functionality the CP524 also provides features such as, advanced IP processing, FEC insertion, monitoring and powerful PSI/SI/PSIP handling. The CP524 is also equipped with reliability features such as hitless protection with diversity reception, service fallback and Embedded Redundancy control to ensure 100% uptime even in the case of severe packet or link loss.

The CP524 supports dynamic PSIP generation for electronic program guide data, interfacing to EPG providers via the ATSC standard PMCP XML-based interface via HTTP or FTP connections. The CP505 has succesfully been integrated with several PSIP data providers, including MediaStar PSIP from Broadcast Interactive Media.
