For.A IPS-6200 overview

  • 1Description

The 1 RU IPS-6200 2x1 IP Changeover Switcher from For.A is a standalone two-input ASI/TS over IP changeover. The IPS-6200 monitors TS-level IP signals in redundant input and instantly switches ports if errors occur. This enables seamless output without disruptions.

Seamless Switching between Outputs of the Same Encoder
When installed at the far end of a network link, the IPS-6200 seamlessly switches between redundant encoder TSoIP input used in multicast transmissions or the like. This supports seamless switching without video or audio disruption.
Auto and Manual Switching
When a signal error occurs, the IPS-6200 automatically switches to the other line. Manual switching and auto/manual assignment of each line are also possible.
Delay Adjustment Function
The delay difference between different lines is absorbed quickly and both phase inputs are automatically aligned, achieving seamless switching that does not disrupt the output. The delay adjustment range is up to ten seconds.
TS-Level Monitoring
TS-Level error monitoring is used for IP signals. Error monitoring is designed to check for packet loss, null-only, and other critical errors that may affect signal quality. Error detection can also be enabled or disabled based on the type of signal. Set the PID error detection threshold as desired, in 1 ms increments. Up to four sets of multi-program signals are supported.
GUI-Based Remote Control and Monitoring
Ethernet interfaces enable a wide range of remote monitoring and control. The dedicated GUI can be used to make settings and graphically display error-monitoring contents via Ethernet. An event log viewer, automatic CSV file generation, and other functions are also provided to facilitate signal management requiring historical condition data. SNMP-based control, configuration, and monitoring are also supported.
ASI and IP Inputs Supported
Choose ASI or IP for each signal supplied. Enables mixed input, using IN 1 (IP) and IN 2 (ASI), for example. Ideal for redundant ASI/satellite operation.
