Core benefits

  • Adaptable to any scenario

    The MediaInfra Strada solution is designed to manage simple as well as very complex workflows, and suitable for SDI and/or IP environments. Because of the extensive list of implemented APIs and protocols like NMOS-IS04/05, the solution is compatible with almost any third-party broadcast device. 

  • Easy deployment

    The turnkey solution is sent to you on a single pallet, providing everything you need including the cabling and pre-configured router control interfaces for an easy, drop-in replacement of your outdated SDI router.

  • A familiar environment and customizable interfaces

    Since your live IP media streams become part of a hybrid router master, operators will not notice the difference between switching SDI sources or switching IP streams. Users are also free to completely modify their interfaces and create their own router panels. 

  • Peace of mind

    Choosing MediaInfra Strada is the assurance that your production infrastructure is in good hands and supported by no-fail technology. Our experts stand by your teams no matter what, offering 24/7 support, and a single point of contact for you to enjoy peace of mind every step of the way.

Cerebrum provides highly customizable interfaces to easily control, configure and monitor any production environment. It features easy router, tally, UMD, mnemonics, categories and tie-line configurations as well as IP device routing via NMOS IS-04, 05, SDP and various native protocols.

Neuron Bridge

Neuron Bridge is a multi-channel A/V-over-IP transceiver developed for use within low-latency and high-bandwidth IP networks. In combination with the SDI expansion module, Neuron Bridge can process up to 32 video signals and multiple channels of audio, acting as a uni- or bidirectional bridge in hybrid applications. Neuron Bridge also performs well in IP-to-IP setups, being the link between ST2022-6 and ST2110.

Neuron Shuffle

With new IP-based audio formats, like ST2110-30 and ST2110-31, the amount of audio channels within a broadcast facility can easily grow into the thousands. Finding which channels belong to which audio streams and shuffling the various channels from one stream to the other is becoming quite a challenge. With Neuron Shuffle you can shuffle and delay thousands of individual audio channels in an 8192x8192 audio matrix.

Arista Ethernet Switch

Highly dynamic broadcast environments continue to evolve with the introduction of new technologies bringing with them ever increasing bandwidth demands, accelerating the need for dense 25 and 100 Gigabit ethernet switching in both leaf and spine tiers. The Arista DSC-7050 Series are purpose built fixed configuration 10/25G and 100G systems built for the highest performance environments.
