Demand for interactive, personalized content creates an “omnimedia” era in which content is format-agnostic, regardless of the source. It requires better source adaptability to simplify system interconnection and interaction, but challenges abound:
- Costly expansion: Traditional box matrices stacked on small matrices disable cross-port switching so stations need more ports to expand capacity
- Difficult maintenance: Long, faulty SDI cables require new replacements
- Limited HD video transmission support: Coaxial cables cannot transmit far and often degrade video quality, so existing links cannot support HD video transmission
Huawei’s “Driving Force” strategy simplifies network deployment, develops all-IP networks, and sorts service systems for a lower TCO.
Huawei’s IP-based TV Station Video and Audio Matrix Solution replaces traditional matrices with IP switches. The switches have HD signal bit rates up to 1.5 Gbit/s and UHD rates of more than 3 Gbit/s. The IP switches require 92% fewer cables and extend video transmission to 50 miles (80 km).
An SDN Controller controls IP stream multicasting, connects to upper-level IP service management systems, and provides large-capacity access caching. It monitors signal quality and visually displays quality status without compromising usability.
An access switch in the control center equipment room connects to the program multicast group and is compatible with customers’ legacy systems.
S12700 switches use an ENP chip to identify SDI IP streams and detect delay, jitter, and packet loss to provide a visual display of SDI signal quality.
