Bridge is an SDI ↔ IP gateway developed for low-latency Live IP infrastructures. Supporting all modern encapsulation standards like ST2022 and ST2110, a Neuron Bridge card can process up to 32 x 1080p feeds (or up to 8x 2160p feeds) to and from SDI and IP via redundant 100GbE network interfaces. The various available configurations enable bridging in either direction in groups of 8 FHD (= 2 UHD) processing paths per base-license.
