MVN-MX260 Media Gateway

The MVN-MX260 Media Gateway is the market leading high availability solution, enabling transmission of real time video over IP networks. The flexible openGear® platform provides operators with a powerful, cost effective solution for processing or format converting DVB transport streams. The MVN-MX260 Media Gateway module is a high performance real-time MPEG video processing solution that supports bidirectional Transport Stream to IP encapsulation as standard. Based on the openGear® architecture, the MVN-MX260 has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of post-production, Contribution and Distribution applications enabling multiple MPEG transport streams to be transported through Gigabit Ethernet connections over an IP network. The MVN-MX260 is fully bidirectional in both the ASI and IP domain and can be software licensed to enable enhanced Transport Stream processing and multiplexing functions. State of the art processing combined with the unique MediaCore processing core enables new system architectures to be created allowing content to be freely distributed over IP networks. The MVN-MX260 enables operators to take advantage of the associated cost savings by deploying IP networks while increasing flexibility and reliability. The low power, high density 2RU chassis with dual front loading, hot swappable power supplies, enable up to 60 Multi Program Transport Streams (MPTS) to be processed, encapsulated and de-encapsulated simultaneously. The MVN-MX260 is managed using the DashBoard Network Control & Monitoring software. DashBoard is a free application designed for remote control & monitoring of the open architecture, openGear platform. For larger deployments where multiple chassis are deployed the DashBoard application can be used for software updates, configuration and control.

Base card Features

MVN-MX260 Base card (MVN-MX260/BAS)


The MVN-MX260 base module fits into any openGear™ chassis and is able to output a single transport stream over any ASI or IP output port. The flexible design allows up to an additional five transports streams to be processed on each module.


  • 1x ASI to IP encapsulation or IP to ASI de-encapsulation
  • 1x Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • Management and control via openGear chassis
  • IP transmission using unicast or multicast
  • In-band or out-of-band control
  • Multicast IGMP v1,v2 and v3 support

Licensable Options

  • Additional transport stream output (MVN-MX260/TS)
  • Enables second GbE port (MVN-MX260/GBE)
About openGear™

openGear™ is an open standard based platform that has been widely adopted by numerous broadcast equipment manufacturers. openGear™ uses a 2 rack unit frame that holds either 10 or 20 cards. Many manufacturers develop openGear™ cards and frames that can be mixed and matched. This gives the freedom to build your facility without being locked into a proprietary rack standard or specific vendor’s solution. Whatever unique or custom needs you have, there will most likely be an openGear™ partner that makes it. All openGear™ cards are hot swappable and can be controlled from the same DashBoard™ network control and monitoring software.
