The UVTX-2022 is a universal transmitter board capable of accepting up to four HD-SDI, HD-SDTI, SD-SDI, SDTI, DVB-ASI, 3D dual-link, and/or 3G-SDI inputs. Four Auto-Sensing inputs are provided with one monitor output and multiple format inputs are supported simultaneously. In addition to uncompressed HD-SDI, HD-SDTI, SDI or SDTI inputs, CBR (Constant Bit Rate) DVB-ASI signals (in either byte or burst mode) can be accepted by the UVTX-2022. Inputs may be either electrical or optical.

All Ethernet packets sent by the UVTX-2022 module are transferred across the MD8000 across a non-blocking Layer 2 switch fabric where signal replication is supported over multiple 1GbE, 10GbE and/or OC-192/48/12/3 network interfaces. Each encapsulated video service (HD/SD/DVB-ASI) can have a unique destination or multiple destinations in the network.
The SMPTE 425 Dual Link specification is supported for transport of 3D content, Level A 3D-HD-SDI & Level B 3D-3G-SDI. Additionally, the UVTX-2022 provides TR101-ETR290 performance monitoring and real time analysis of each DVB-ASI stream.

Other network transport protection mechanisms include Hitless Switching for redundant paths and Auto Protection. A video generator (useful in circuit turn-up, testing, and troubleshooting) and an ID generator are built into the UVTX-2022 card.
