The DTA-2110 is a high-performance 10G network card optimized for Linux and Windows, designed to facilitate the creation of SMPTE 2110 applications with greater efficiency and less overhead than competing solutions. With full compliance to SMPTE 2110 and SMPTE 2022-5/6 protocols, it supports TS over-IP encapsulation/decapsulation and IP FEC. Its architecture features six hardware pipes (3x Rx, 3x Tx) for enhanced performance, advanced timestamping, and traffic shaping synchronized to PTP, ensuring precise packet delivery.

The card’s SFP+ slot accommodates both 10G and 1G connections and is versatile for electrical and optical use. It boasts advanced hardware offloading for network traffic, integrates seamlessly with FFmpeg, and offers an intuitive AV FIFO API to streamline IP streaming workflows.

Ideal for upgrading SDI-based applications to SMPTE 2110, the DTA-2110 is well-suited for software encoders/decoders, monitoring, multiviewers, and compliance recording.

•    Compliance recording
The DTA-2110 supports the transition from SDI to IP infrastructure, ensuring enhanced effi-ciency and performance.


Outlined below is the block diagram of the DTA-2110’s firmware, organized into two pathways: transmission (upper section) and reception (lower section).

The transmission path incorporate three hardware pipes that directly interface with the user application, resulting in excellent performance. Packets from these hardware pipes are multiplexed with those from the software pipes and the standard network stack. A scheduler ensures that each packet is transmitted precisely according to its PTP timestamp.

Conversely, the receive path also integrates 3 hardware pipes directly interfaced with the user application. All remaining packets are dispatched to a software router. This router channels real-time AV streams to the software pipes, while normal standard network traffic is forwarded to the conventional network stack.
