DigiLink Platform Enables "zero latency" Digital Audio Transport.

WESTFORD, Mass. — April 7, 2014 — Artel Video Systems, a leading global provider of broadcast media transport solutions and HARMAN's Studer announced today that Artel's DigiLink platform has been successfully deployed to transport Studer A-Link audio data streams across fiber infrastructures. The DigiLink platform will be shown at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas, at Artel Video Systems.

Found in Studer's groundbreaking Vista X digital console, A-Link, utilizing Artel's DigiLink, can now provide a simple and robust digital audio interface capable of transmitting 1536 channels of "zero latency" digital audio to be transported between remote sites and the mixing console back at the studio. A return fiber is also provided enabling return audio circuits, control, and status to be connected over the same link. Using the optical multiplexing features of DigiLink enables several A-Link streams, along with video and Ethernet, to be multiplexed on a single fiber offering complete remote coverage including video, audio, control, and communications over a single fiber pair.

"A-Link with DigiLink's fiber transport capabilities brings a new scale of interfacing to the audio world," said Andrew Hills, Studer Product Director. "We look forward to working with Artel and expanding the capabilities of our A-Link solution."

"Studer's legendary reputation in the audio industry, combined with Artel's reputation for reliability make the integration of A-Link and DigiLink the ideal solution for transport audio over fiber networks," said Richard Dellacanonica, president of Artel Video Systems. "Partnering with HARMAN's Studer now expands the capabilities of transporting audio streams, providing the flexibility to meet the growing needs of emerging networks."
