Professional Redundancy ASI Switch


Item: 5092


The IDLV-3000AL is a professional digital TV ASI redundancy switch. It integrates 6-way 1+1 ASI switches in a 1RU chassis. The slave ASI input signal will be automatically routed to 2 identical fully redundant ASI output ports in case the master ASI input signal fails. The switching condition is monitored by a built-in intelligent TS processor on real time basis and which can continuously analyze the quality and validity of each ASI input stream.


Furthermore, the switch can monitor switching conditions for up to 8 PIDs for each ASI output. By using an ultra fast RF relay, it can ensure rapid transition from a master port to a slave port with high performance and stability. The unit can be controlled and monitored remotely over SNMP and/or HTTP Web interface which makes the IDLV-3000AL an ideal product for broadcast system redundancy.  


Main Features: 

  • Compatible with DVB-ASI (EN50083-9) standard
  • Up to 6 independent 1+1 switching modules in 1RU 19”chassis
  • Built-in real time transport stream monitoring
  • Input and Output bit-rate up to 160 Mb/s on each switch module
  • Automatic or manual switch mode
  • TS sync loss and PIDs loss as switching condition
  • Mechanical Bypass Relay to output in the event of power failure
  • DC 12V backup power supply
  • Remote control, monitoring and upgrade by SNMP and HTTP web-based UI
