A versatile and widely deployed MD8000 line module, the UVRX-J2K-2022 board is a “Universal” four port video receiver card with decompression that is compatible with SMPTE 2022 sources. The SMPTE 2022 specification describes a standardized method of encapsulating video signals for transmission across IP transport networks. Pairing this module with a compression card like the UVTX-J2K-2022 gives customers high quality video with significantly reduced bandwidth, saving transport costs and allowing more channels to be sent across the network.

The UVRX-J2K-2022 is compatible with the following SMPTE 2022 compliant encoder (source) line cards:

  • MD8000-JPEG-2022
  • MD8000-UVTX-2022
  • MD8000-UVTX-J2K-2022
  • MD8000-VIF-2022
  • MD8000-VTX-4S-2022

The four Ethernet streams terminating on this line module can originate anywhere in the MD8000 network. All Ethernet packets sent to and received by this module are transferred across the MD8000 backplane via the Switch Controller module (SW-CNT). DVB-ASI output signals are reconstructed from the transparent Ethernet transport of MPEG2TS. Null packets within the ASI wrapper and are re-inserted at the destination matching the original DVB-ASI input signal. The MD8000-UVRX-2022 provides TR101-ETR290 performance monitoring and real time analysis of each DVB-ASI stream.

The UVRX-J2K-2022 provides resilient Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Lossless/Hitless path protection switching for extremely robust signal transport. Multiple format outputs supported simultaneously.

The UVRX-J2K-2022 module can output the following uncompressed signal types:

  • SD-SDI
  • SDTI
  • HD-SDI
  • 3G-SDI
  • 3D dual-link
