Media Links “Media over IP” transport technology at IBC 2023!

Media Links will be presenting a range of media over IP transport solutions at IBC 2023, Hall 1, A59.

Xscend: IP Media Platform


Xscend is an ultra-dense, ultra-versatile media platform, designed for the network edge. As a reconfigurable IP migration gateway, Xscend addresses the migration from SDI-to-IP and IP-to-IP environments. It can accommodate changing video formats, network communication protocols, compression algorithms and physical interfaces. Support of up 128 media and data services across managed & unmanaged networks is possible in a compact 2RU chassis.

MDP3020 MAX: IP Media Gateway


This SMPTE standards-based IP media gateway is enhanced with support for two 4K-UHD/12G SDI video channels. Thanks to its flexible and modular design, respond to day-to-day application needs with JPEG-XS, JPEG2000, or Uncompressed Video, Audio & Data transport.

MDP3020 SFN: IP Media Gateway (Single Frequency Networks)


This IP media gateway is designed for IP distribution of digital television broadcast signals across Single Frequency Networks (SFN). MDP3020 SFN supports Precision Timing protocol, enabling transport of a synchronous time base without relying on expensive satellite receivers. Additional features include onboard redundancy, full scale network management support, and easy scalability with additional transmitters should the network size change.

MDP3020 Helps Grow SFN Reach without Costly GPS

The standards-rich MDP3020 SFN by Media Links is a low-cost IP gateway that doesn’t rely on expensive or at-risk GPS synchronization.

MDP3020 SFN allows for IP distribution of digital television broadcast signals across Single Frequency Networks, while supporting Precision Timing Protocol (PTP). Thanks to this PTP support, transport a synchronous time base without relying on satellite receivers.


Deliver media network migration to IP based transport with PTP, upgrade from DVB-T to T2, and take advantage of efficient spectrum utilization, all thanks to MDP3020 SFN.
