Apantac, a producer of image signal processing equipment, will launch its new video over IP multiviewers, Si-16 series, at IBC 2017.
Apantac designed the Si-16 series of multiviewers to address the growing demand for monitoring video and audio signals over an IP network infrastructure.
At IBC, Apantac will demonstrate how the Si-16 series supports the ST 2022-6 standard for encapsulated SDI over IP. These multiviewers will also soon support the ST 2022-7 standard for redundancy as well as the latest ST 2110 video over IP standard.
The new Si-16 series of multiviewers accept 16 video over IP inputs using SFP modules. The connection between the IP Switch and the Si-16 is accomplished via fibre. There are three models to choose from, sharing the same 1 RU hardware. The Si-16 is an 16x1 multiviewer with a dual set of identical HDMI and SDI outputs. The Si-16+ consists of two 8x1 multiviewers where the output from each of them is available as both HDMI and SDI. The Si-16# is a 16x2 multiviewer with two sets of HDMI and SDI outputs where any input can be displayed on one or both outputs.
