Overview of MDP3020 MAX IP Media Gateway

The Media Links MDP3020 is an advanced, high quality standalone IP media gateway for the network edge, focused on addressing the needs of the broadcast media market.

With insatiable demand for live content from all types of environments, the need for a portable, network protected, remotely configurable and cost effective edge device is enormous. The MDP3020 can process ever-increasing amounts of media information over IP networks, existing broadcast networks, as well as point-to-point fiber networks. Further, the MDP3020 is designed primarily for smaller scale remote production, MD8000 edge, TV distribution, and local point-to-point applications where economical IP media transport/conversion is required.

The device can be used in various configurations, either separately or in combination due to its multichannel capability:
• For Contribution applications, as an IP media gateway (encoder)
• For Distribution applications, as a remote video playout device (decoder)
• For Point-to-Point local video and distribution applications, when used in pairs  (encoder to decoder)
• For IP distribution of digital television broadcast signals
