Modular Frames

Adtec Digital offers 2 frame options, the AFN-1000 1RU frame or the more portable AFN-250. Regardless of where you start, we are committed to supporting you as you grow, giving you the ability to add-on, upgrade or trade-up when needed.

4K (UHD) HEVC / AVC / MP2 Encode & Decode Carriers

Featuring multi-channel, 4K(UHD)/HD/SD encode or decode, dense audio, VANC processing, and low latency, these all-in-one carriers are ideal for demanding broadcast video applications. Each encoder carrier supports up to four (4) channels of HD/SD encoding or a single 4K(UHD) channel . Each decoder carriers supports up to two (2) channels of HD/SD decoding. These carriers can be combined in one frame along with any transport carriers you require.

Multiplexer / Transport Carriers
Adtec Digital offers secure and reliable solutions to get your premium quality video from point A to point B. With IP & ASI interfaces, an advanced feature set and enough horsepower to handle the most demanding applications, these multiplexer carriers can be installed in a frame for stand-alone applications or be combined with encoders and decoders to suit your custom broadcast requirements.
 
 

AFN-1000 Frame
Space-saving & power-efficient AFN-1000 frame was designed with industry evolution in mind. Each frame includes a system host carrier with on-board IP multiplexing capabilities, a web-based user interface and front panel controls for network configuration. This flexible platform can accommodate seven additional function-based carriers enabling customized workflows.

AFN-250 Frame
The AFN-250 frame provides a compact and flexible design for in-house or on-the-go applications. Designed for professional video streaming, multiplexing and turn-around applications, this frame allows users to meet current needs and budgets. When needed, users can expand to the AFN-1000 frame as all carriers are interchangeable within the afiniti family.

Rackmount Multi-Channel Encoder/Decoder Configurations:
Built with multi-channel applications in mind, these encoder/decoder configurations provide maximum flexibility and enable expansion and growth. Each frame can support up to 16 HD/SD encoders or 8 HD/SD decoders, includes an on-board IP multiplexer and leaves room for additional multiplexing carriers.

Applications:

  • At Home / Remote Productions
  • Tier One Sports Contribution

Infrastructure Solutions

Secure IP Transmission: via SRT Protocol:
SRT stands for ‘Secure Reliable Transport’, and is an open source video transport protocol. SRT uses secure streams and easy firewall traversal to optimize streaming performance and deliver high-quality video over even the most unreliable networks.

The SRT protocol uses end-to-end 128/256 bit AES encryption to ensure that content is protected from contribution to distribution. It also provides the ability to configure specific controls that allow users to correct for specific network challenges.
