Overview of MDP 3020 IP Media Gateway

The Media Links MDP3020 is an advanced, high quality standalone edge device, 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 huge. 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 edge device (encoder)
  • For Distribution applications, as a remote video play-out 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

The Media Links MDP3020 is part of the MDP Series of standalone edge devices for the broadcast media market. MDP Series is a modular family of devices that work together to offer a flexible standard for agile deployments. All MDP Series devices are compatible with the next-generation Media Links 100G Ecosystem.
