DENVER -- WooshCom® Corporation today announced the introduction of a radically different approach for the aggregation of DVB-ASI satellite receiver streams into Gig-E. At the heart of this is the CSX-1641; a miniature quad ASI input module with Gig-E input and Gig-E output ports. This granular approach, of only 4 ports per module, enables engineers to tailor the overall number of ASI ports closely to their needs, while also providing for a spare unit at a low cost.

Multiple CSX modules may be cascaded together using the Gig-E ports to form aggregation groups of virtually any size. This flexible approach enables operators to choose the size of each aggregation group so as to balance out the load on the Gig-E outputs. Standard MPEG Null packet filtering further optimizes the output bandwidth.

The CSX-1641’s miniature size (4.8”x3.3”x0.9” & 8.5 ounce) allows for “zero rack space install” in the wire harness area behind the satellite receivers. Alternately up to 19 CSX’s may be mounted on a rack shelf providing the highest density ASI aggregation solution in the industry at 76 ASI ports in 2U of space. At Cable-Tec Expo, it will be on display at booth # 716 of Ionthis Inc.
