Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 SMPTE ST 2110 NIC Card

CATEGORY: IP Broadcast Solutions - Switching, routing, monitoring




The Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 SMPTE ST 2110 25 GbE network interface controller (NIC) card simplifies the transition from multi-channel SDI workflows to multi-channel IP workflows by delivering up to four 4K IP video inputs and outputs over 25 GbE networks. Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 enables broadcasters to design the world’s most advanced 4K/HD-enabled broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, and other high-density, PC-based video equipment.

High-density 4K/HD IP video I/O
Featuring native SMPTE ST 2110 4K support, the Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 network adapter provides unprecedented multi-channel IP video I/O of up to four 4K/UHDp60, 16 1080p60, 32 HD, or any equivalent combination of flows over two 25 GbE links with SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy.

Optimizing SMPTE ST 2110 environments
The Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 card supports SMPTE ST 2110-21, which guarantees narrow transmission with zero CPU usage for long-term on-air operation. Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 also offers hardware-based Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support allowing for clock accuracy in the nanosecond range, eliminating network jitter associated with general-purpose, non-video-aware NIC cards. In addition, with built-in support for NMOS Device Registration and Discovery (IS-04), NMOS Device Connection Management (IS-05), and the newly-defined JT-NM TR 1001-1 recommendation, the Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 provides seamless integration, communication, and interoperability in SMPTE ST 2110 environments.

With access to standard network functionality, DSX LE5 ST 2110 NIC cards provide a complete comprehensive COTS solution for software applications to seamlessly transition from SDI to ST 2110 with no hassle and guaranteed success.
