ASI Monitoring Blade


Product Summary

The VB242 ASI input option card allows operators real-time high-density ASI monitoring or switched ASI round-robin monitoring for remote or head-end applications. With up to 13 ASI inputs in a 1 RU chassis in combination with the VB220 or VB120 controllers, the VB242 is perfect for existing infrastructures in the head-end and the regional edge-multiplexer/ modulator/ transmitter site. The VB242 complements the already extensive range of input interfaces for the VideoBRIDGE series probes.

The VB242 interface module can operate in two different modes: either two of the inputs are monitored full time with continuous ETSI TR 101 290 analysis, or its six inputs are sequentially monitored in a round-robin fashion
