IRT, 4 ASI to ASI Combiner



* Ex GST. Check with us for the latest pricing

- Up to 4 ASI streams on one ASI link.
- Units may be cascaded to increase the number of ASI inputs.
- Recovers transmitted ASI signal without any added PCR jitter and with minimal setup.
- Maintains original ASI rate, packet size & coding (energy dispersal scrambling, interleaving or Reed Solomon bytes).
- Suitable for Single Frequency Networks (SFN).

The MMM-4711 and MMX-4711 are part of a family of data transcoders for converting between the commonly used MPEG2 Transport Stream formats for video distribution in the broadcast industry.

With the MMM-4711 up to four ASI signals can be combined together and converted into a single ASI signal with a settable output payload rate.

The sum of the ASI input payload rates can be anything up to approximately 0.9* x the set ASI output payload rate. Inputs may be 188 or 204 byte packet lengths, burst or continuous, and may have energy dispersal scrambling, interleaving and/or Reed Solomon bytes included. An individual input may be up to 0.9* x the full set ASI output payload rate if the other inputs are unused.

The output ASI stream is a valid stream, which complies with all facets of ETR290.

Provided the total sum of the ASI inputs does not exceed 0.9* x the set output rate, units can be cascaded to increase the number of ASI inputs into a single ASI output.

The MMX-4711 separates the combined ASI signal back into the original four ASI signals (at their original rates and without any modification of the stream, or stream timing). If more than one MMM-4711 has been cascaded then the MMX-4711's cascade in the reverse order.

Inputs are automatically equalised for lengths of up to 250m of Belden 8281 or equivalent cable.

Front panel indication and relay alarm on the MMM-4711 transmitter shows if there is an input data rate violation. Corresponding alarm on the MMX-4711 receiver shows a loss of ASI input.

The MMM-4711 and MMX-4711 are designed to fit IRT's standard Eurocard frames and may be used alongside any other of IRT's analogue or digital Eurocards.
