CX-4 Transport Stream Converter – ASI to IP Gateway

DTV Innovations

Transport Stream Converter

TSoIP to ASI – ASI to TSoIP Gateway


With more and more Transport Streams being pushed through IT networks, there’s a growing need to convert between DVB-ASI and TSoIP.  The CX-4 is an ASI to IP Gateway, which is also capable of converting IP to ASI

The CX-4 contains up to four independent transport stream converters (CX-4-1, CX-4-2, CX-4-3, & CX-4), which convert uni-directionally between Transport Streams over IP and Asynchronous Serial Interface (TSoIP and ASI).

The CX-4 complies with both the DVB and SMPTE 2022 standards. The TSoIP interface supports Transport Stream encapsulation, Forward Error Correction, and UDP/RTP de-encapsulation as defined by the SMPTE 2022 specification.

Adhering to our products philosophy, the CX-4 is designed for easy operation. It is controlled via a web server user interface and comes with dual power supplies for reliability.

Applications: IP-based studio to transmitter links, routing TS over internal IP networks and IP-based distribution to MPVD partners
