Broadcast Quality Video & Audio Processing

The VNP-100 is a standalone, high-quality video codec supporting bidirectional transmission of real-time video and audio signals over IP Networks. The system enables multiple, user selectable compression algorithms depending on Software and Hardware configuration options. The system also enables transmission of Noncompressed SD & HD video over 10Gb/s IP networks.

Multiple Video/Audio user interfaces

The VNP-100 encoder compresses a Standard- or High Definition video source with accompanying audio signals for transmission over IP Networks. The Encoder accepts NTSC, PAL composite video formats with analog audio, HDMI video with embedded audio streams as well as SDI/HD-SDI/3G-SDI video signals with embedded audio streams, and AES/EBU Audio signals.
Independent of the encoder configuration, the VNP-100 decoder reconstructs a SD/HD Video signal with accompanying audio signals from an IP packet stream. The recovered video and audio signals are available as baseband NTSC/PAL composite video signals with baseband audio signals, HDMI video signals with embedded audio streams and SDI/HD-SDI/3G-SDI video signals with embedded audio streams.

Flexible System configurations

The VNP-100 is available in bi-directional codec configuration as well as single and dual Encoder or decoder configurations for uni-directional video/audio transmission for applications requiring high channel density in a small “foot-print” (up to 4 HD and 2 SD V/A channels per 1 RU).

Network Interface

The VNP-100 is equipped with both optical (1/10Gb/s) and electrical network interfaces, supporting 10/100/1000Mbps. Multiple bridged Ethernet interfaces provide flexible installation and interconnectivity options.

Powerful Management

The VNP-100 is remotely manageable via a standard WEB interface and SNMP. Performance monitoring and system configuration capabilities facilitate installation and management in large networks.
