DVEO to Feature ASI2IP and IP2ASI Converters at IBC 2007

For Transmitting and Receiving MPEG-2 ASI Transport Streams Over Dedicated IP Networks (August 29, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-8-29--DVEO, the broadcast division of CMI, will feature their ASI2IP and IP2ASI converters at the International Broadcasting Show (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 7-11, at Stand 3.136.  The units are designed to work together, or with other IP and ASI devices.

The ASI2IP converts MPEG-2 transport streams from DVB-ASI to IP in real time.  Content providers can use it to transmit MPEG-2 transport streams over dedicated IP networks such as LAN's (local area networks) to video servers.

New for IBC 2007, the IP2ASI allows content providers to transmit MPEG-2 transport streams over LANs and convert them to DVB-ASI.  It accepts incoming IP-encapsulated MPEG-2 transport streams over a 100BaseT Ethernet connection and converts them into a DVB-ASI MPEG-2 transport stream. 

DVB-ASI is a physical interconnect standard that carries MPEG-2 transport streams between broadcasting devices.  IP, or Internet Protocol, is a communications standard for sending and receiving information packets over the category 6 cable.  The ASI2IP converts transport streams into UDP IP packets, and the IP2ASI converts UDP IP packets into ASI transport streams -- so content providers can send and/or receive live video over the inexpensive cabling.  The ASI2IP transmits streams for unicasting (sending to one receiver) or multicasting (sending to many receivers), and the IP2ASI receives unicast or multicast streams.

Both the ASI2IP and IP2ASi are compact, portable units that can be rack-mounted if needed.  The ASI2IP can send ASI streams to VideoLan clients (VLC) and other devices.  The IP2ASI receives ASI streams from VLC and various IP devices such as live encoders.   Both units support single or multiprogram transport streams.

"Our customers asked for a companion unit to the ASI2IP, so we are excited to launch the IP2ASI at the IBC show," said Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO.  "The ASI2IP and IP2ASI are primarily used for sending ASI coming from satellite receivers over IP to video servers. They are also ideal for corporate training videos, ethernet transmission of movie or video dailies, and streaming content to and from remote locations."
