IP Media Gateway Encoder/Decoder

MDP 3020

Compact Half-Rack IP Media Gateway

The Media Links MDP 3020 is an advanced, high quality standalone edge device, focused on addressing the needs of the broadcast media market. With insatiable demand for live content from all types of environments, the need for a portable, network protected, remotely configurable and cost effective edge device is huge. The MDP 3020 can process ever-increasing amounts of media information over IP networks, existing broadcast networks, as well as point-to -point fiber networks.

Further, the MDP 3020 is designed primarily for smaller scale remote production, MD8000 edge, and local point-to-point applications where economical IP media conversion is required.

The device can be used in three primary configurations, either separately or in combination due to its multichannel capability:
– For Contribution applications, as an edge device (encoder)
– For Distribution applications, as a remote video playout device (decoder)
– For Point-to-Point local video and distribution applications, when used in pairs (encoder to decoder)
