Media Links to Launch 4K JPEG-XS MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway

Media Links launches its 4K JPEG-XS version of the MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway at IBC 2022!

The MDP3020 is SMPTE standards-based and enhanced with support for two 4K-UHD/12G SDI video channels. It meets the need for cost effective, remotely configurable and protected 4K video over IP services at the network edge. By applying JPEG-XS compression and encapsulating the content into packets for transport over an IP network, the MDP3020 MAX processes incoming 4K, 12G SDI video/audio streams.

MDP3020 utilizes JPEG-XS with inherent high image compression and ultra-low latency processing. Use the MDP3020  in live, remote production applications, specifically where network edge bandwidths are constrained and immediate interaction between studio and venues is crucial.


Additional features include:

  • 10GbE/1GbE data port
  • Dual 10GbE optical interfaces
  • Seamless Protection Switching (aka Hitless Media Processing or SMPTE ST2022-7)
  • Redundant power capability
  • Integrated frame synchronizer
  • 1/2 rack unit
  • Low power consumption

The Seamless Protection/Hitless switching function operates on all media (video, audio and data), preventing signal disruption should there be problems in any one of the two diverse IP network paths.
