openGear SDI over IP Gateway


The Sencore AG SDI2X is a simple and dense solution for SDI over IP implementations, allowing for interconnection of legacy SDI infrastructure to newer, IP-based production gear.

With up to 10 cards per 2RU and 4 video services per card, the card provides an industry-leading 40 services of SMPTE 2110 or SMPTE 2022-6 conversion in a 2RU openGear frame. And with wide protocol support and an expansive roadmap, the AG SDI2X is a future-proof solution to protect against network evolution in the long term.

  • Support for SMPTE 2110 and SMPTE 2022-6 conversion
  • Quad-3G-SDI and 2x SFP+ I/O connectors
  • Unit control via Web GUI, or HTTP/SNMP API control
  • Ingest Gateway for High Quality Video Backhaul Convert or encode multiple legacy signal paths to SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2110/TR-03 or JPEG 2000/TR-01 for transport across high-bandwidth IP networks.
  • Ingress/Egress for Production Systems Combine the AG SDI2X with other openGear ecosystem cards such as color correction, frame sync, or audio mixing to create the ideal miniature production studio with an IP output.
  • Top of Rack Converter for Legacy Installations Take advantage of the expandable openGear form factor and the density of the AG SDI2X to provide up to 40 JPEG 2000/TR-01 encodes or SMPTE 2022-6 encapsulation instances in a 2RU package.
