DTA-2160 | PCI Express

GigE and 3x ASI ports for PCIe

DekTec's Gigabit Ethernet adapter with three ASI/SDI ports, allowing zero-jitter transmission and reception of Transport Streams over IP networks; the additional three ASI ports allow easy conversion between the two interface types.

  • Simultaneous zero-jitter transmission and reception of multiple Transport Streams over IP networks.
  • With time-stamping of incoming IP packets for IP jitter analysis and two-dimensional FEC generation for outgoing packets, with programmable D and L, a perfect solution for network optimization.
  • Three independent software controllable bi-directional BNC ports, operable in ASI or SDI mode, with individual status LEDs.
  • General-purpose transmission and reception of Transport Streams over ASI links and IP networks
  • IP encapsulation in accordance with SMPTE 2022-1 and 2022-2
  • Zero-jitter playout of multiple TS-over-IP streams
  • Source-specific multicast (SSM) support
  • Generation of two-dimensional FEC with programmable dimensions D and L and block-aligned FEC linearization
  • Re-ordering and error correction of TS-over-IP streams with programmable latency
  • Time stamping of incoming IP packets to enable TS-over-IP jitter analysis

  • IP jitter analysis using DtJitter.
  • Using the StreamXpert and DtJitter software multiple TS over IP streams can be individually monitored and analyzed.
  • For a 24/7 monitoring solution unlimited (limited to the available bandwidth) IP ports can be used by the Xpect software.
  • In combination with MuxXpert you can real-time multiplex streams.
  • Contribution, primary distribution over IP
  • Multipurpose ASI/TS-over-IP stream station
  • Jitter measurements of TS-over-IP streams
  • General-purpose ASI and TS-over-IP inputs and outputs for OEM applications

  • DTA-2160 Leaflet   
  • DT-AN-IP-2 VLAN for DekTec Network Adapters  

Dektec models are most often differentiated by the sufix e.g. SD, SXP etc., where suffix specifies the SW licence
  • SP = Stream Player (allows you to play/modulate transport stream files, so this makes sence for devices with Output interface)
  • SXP = Stream Xpert (this is MPEG TS ANALYZER, what makes sence for Input devices)
  • SLP = Stream Xper Lite (very limited alternative of SXP, de facto allowing mainly capturing MPEG TS, again makes sence for Input devices)
  • RX = RFXpert RF signal analysys
  • SY = SD Eye (video analyzer)
  • J = Jitter
  • DGL = Dongle license for non Dektec devices
Meaning of abreviations used in beginning of Dektec model names
  • DTA = Dektec adapter (typically PCI, PCI-e)
  • DTU = Dektec USB device both USB-2 and USB-3
  • DTE = Dektec Ethernet standalone networked device
  • DTC = Dektec software license
