MDP3040 Modular IP Media Gateway for 4K / UHD with TICO Compression

Media Links

Using advanced and efficient TICO compression, the MDP3040 converts incoming 12G-SDI video signals into IP encapsulated 3G-SDI streams that can be sent over WAN or studio LAN’s for decoding at the far end. 

Visually lossless video quality and low latency add to the unit’s appeal for demanding broadcast applications. As with all of Media Links’ products, the unit is built for high reliability and features robust Hitless protection over dual 10 Gbps trunks, Forward Error Correction, and dual power supplies.

The MDP3040 converts 12G-SDI feeds into TICO compressed 3G-SDI outputs, making it ideal for sending high bandwidth 4K signals over SDI baseband studio networks.

The unit’s small form factor and portability make it ideal for smaller venues and short run events as well as space constrained locations such as OB trucks and broadcast studios.

–Compact and portable – small footprint

–12G SDI and HDMI output interfaces
