Direkt routers are used for connecting video links, change IP streams between unicast and multicast or to add or remove error correction. Direkt router can be customized with transcoding, multiview and SDI outputs. It then becomes an advanced receiver with many different areas of use.
A Direkt router in an IP link system gives foremost the following advantages.
SUPERVISION AND ALARMS
IP streams, which enters a Direkt router can be supervised and trouble shooted via ISS – Intinors system for statistics and supervision.
Direkt router can receive and send IP streams with error correction (FEC or TCP with buffering).
Direkt router automatically handles variable bitrate on incoming IP streams.
Direkt router receive and assemble video transmitted over multiple IP streams.
On Direkt router, one can control access to input streams on each respective input.
Direkt router has six separate inputs, which can be configured individually. More inputs can be added.
Direkt router is delivered in a format which can be installed in a 19” rack with all connectors on the rear side. Power supply is built in and 100–240V AC is fed using an ordinary power cord.
Direkt router is primarily customized using options. Other customer tailored solutions are made on order.
By using 4-wire talkback, Direkt link can connect to other Direkt units for audio communication with short delay. The option gives two full duplex mono channel, for example control room and studio return.
MULTIPLE VIDEO INPUTS
Direkt router can be customized with multiple video inputs.
Direkt router can transcode a stream with video and audio to MPEG2 or H.264-format in a specific encoding mode before it redistributes it. This option is available for web TV or broadcast.
Multiple inputs on can be encoded as a multiview video in MPEG2- or H.264-format.
With one or multiple SDI outputs (HD/SD) Direkt router becomes an advanced video receiver with many areas of use. The user can connect IP inputs with SDI outputs and by this way use many more Direkt links than the physical outputs available. One SDI output can also be used for multiview.
With an external mixer control you can easily control which input is connected to the respective SDI output.
Extra network interfaces can be useful if Direkt router distributes video streams over multiple networks.
RTP OR RTMP OUT
Direkt router have support for sending video streams using RTMP as transport instead of MPEG-TS. RTMP streams can be received and redistributed by streaming servers for web TV. i.e Adobe Media Server and Wowza Media Server.
The video stream between Intinor Direkt link, Direkt router and Direkt receiver can be encrypted and authenticated in a very secure way if needed.
