Media Links Launches Compact IP to J2K Decoder at NAB 2016

Announces New MDP 3000 Series – IP to J2K Decoder is first solution in the family

Media Links, a 2014 Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award winner and the market leader in media over IP transport solutions, is launching its first stand-alone IP to J2K Decoder appliance at NAB 2016, booth SU4721.

The new MDP3000 Series includes Media Links’ first product in the family, the MDP3010, a next generation JPEG2000 Decoder for receiving high quality audio and video transport streams over IP based networks.

The MDP3010 Decoder offers advanced, pristine quality IP to JPEG2000 processing in a compact, portable and rugged footprint, which exceeds the demands of high-end broadcast applications. It receives IP packets that contain a JPEG2000 compressed code stream through a 1GbE network interface and reproduces a video and audio signal from the received IP packets.


As JPEG2000 transport streams continue to increase throughout Broadcaster and Service Provider networks, users can implement this technology throughout their existing SDI / IP infrastructures without the major investment of upgrading or purchasing new racks of equipment. JPEG2000 is an advanced compression standard that is known for its superior picture quality and compression performance.

Two SDI outputs are provided along with an HDMI output port for connection to a general purpose display device. An SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) port is also available as an additional electrical or optical SDI output.


The MDP3010 is compact enough for limited space installations and fits comfortably next to or behind a video display, minimizing cabling requirements via its 1GbE IP network connection.

The MDP3010 Decoder is well suited for the following applications:

-    Contribution Quality Broadcast Feeds
-    Studio to Studio Media Exchange
-    Content Screening & Quality Control Monitoring
-    Distribution Delivery to DTT/Satellite/Cable and IPTV Head-Ends
-    Remote Production and OB Van Environments

Advanced capabilities also include Forward Error Correction (FEC), Output Signal Correction, Video ID and Tally insertion as well as Video Status Monitoring.

The new MDP3010 Decoder will be on display at Media Links NAB booth SU4721.
