Magewell debuts modular rackmount IP conversion family

Magewell has announced the Modator family that builds on the company’s standalone encoders and decoders to provide a high-density, modular, rackmount form factor.

The Modator family will debut at the 2024 NAB show, April 14 – 17 in Las Vegas, on Magewell's booth (C6816).

The new Modator 2U chassis is designed to fit standard rack deployments and has slots for up to 10 modules. Users can configure frame network settings and monitor the status of the chassis and installed modules through the integrated 4.8-in LED touchscreen or browser-based web interface. It has dual power supplies and optimised heat dissipation.

The hot-swappable Modator modules each offer their own network connectivity and can work independently to convert between baseband video/audio signals and IP streams. Each module features a web-based management interface, while the Modator 2U frame and each installed module can also be centrally configured, controlled and monitored through Magewell's optional Control Hub management software.

The first four Modator modules all support NDI video connectivity technology. Initial modules include:

 - Pro Convert HDMI Plus Module: encodes HDMI input signals into high-definition IP streams in the NDI high bandwidth format

 - Pro Convert HDMI 4K Plus Module: encodes HDMI input signals into NDI high bandwidth at up to 4K (4096x2160) resolution at 60 frames per second

 - Pro Convert for NDI to HDMI Module: decodes IP streams up to 2560x1440 in a range of formats (including NDI High Bandwidth, NDI HX2, NDI HX3, TVU ISSP, and H.264 or H.265 delivered via RTMP, RTSP, HLS, MPEG-TS and more) for HDMI output 

 - Pro Convert for NDI to AIO Module: the same decoding features as the Pro Convert for NDI to HDMI Module, but with simultaneous HDMI and SDI outputs up to 1080p60
