Today’s customers recognize that IP infrastructure will eventually become the norm in the broadcast facility as compression gets better, networks get larger and products get less expensive. While this shift will ultimately drive cost savings, the transition period will undoubtedly present challenges.
Selenio™ MCP3 is a next-generation, modular solution that presents an all-new approach to networking and signal processing in this converging baseband/broadband arena. The industry’s first integrated media convergence platform, Selenio combines traditional baseband video and audio processing, compression and IP networking features — all in a single, space-saving 3RU frame. An intuitive, web-based GUI enables effortless configuration and effective troubleshooting for superior operational efficiency.
Now you can manage baseband and IP intelligently and efficiently. Reduce cabling and simplify your broadcast infrastructure. Deftly juggle multiple compression standards, video/audio signals, encoding formats. Get all the functionality you need to run your business today — and a clear, cost-effective growth path to whatever is on your horizon.

Every shipment of the Selenio frame includes the following:
- A controller for interface to control networks (with an option for data networks)
- Two genlock reference looping inputs utilizing standard BNC connectors
- Built-in, browser-based management system (no software required) that incorporates support for rich interactive features through Microsoft® Silverlight®
- A General Purpose Interface (GPI) — Two GPI inputs and outputs are provided on a multi-pin type connector
- Power Supply — Each frame includes one energy-efficient, 80 Plus Gold-certified power supply that will power a fully loaded frame
Selenio options include a second power supply and a second controller for redundancy, as well as a local control panel.
N+1 redundancy is supported in the Selenio frame. Redundancy is accomplished by using an external router or a crosspoint on the Selenio controller module.
Redundancy is implemented through software provisioning (controller module, application module and control system).
There are three means of utilizing the external reference:
- Main and back-up color black (blackburst) or TLS (Tri-Level Sync) references
- Color black (blackburst) or TLS and DARS (Digital Audio Reference Signal) for AES-11 compliance configurations
- Two different reference signals – e.g., color black NTSC and (black burst) PAL – can be applied to the frame, and each module capable of locking to an external reference can be chosen to lock to either reference
Application modules with a frame synchronizer function have an analog reference connection to the two external reference inputs. Neither of these analog reference connections is broken if the controller module must be removed for servicing.
Application modules that require a digital reference — such as the encoder, decoder or multiplexer/demultplexer — have a digital reference connection to each of the two controller modules.
Intuitive Web-based GUI
Featuring a built-in, browser-based management system (no software required) that incorporates support for rich interactive features through Microsoft® Silverlight®, Selenio provides a graphically rich interface that enables operators to get the most functionality from the new platform — without being buried under an avalanche of manuals and bespoke commands.
Operators can access the platform from their web browser and, using graphical block diagrams for each particular module, can easily step through the configuration process — significantly reducing the chance of error.
Selenio application modules utilize high-density HD-BNC connectors for video and audio connectivity. The HD-BNC offers the same strength and is the same bayonet-locking connector as standard BNC connectors.
HD-BNC connectors meet all SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 424M return loss specifications — and exceeds them at 3 Gb/s. For high-density applications, a cable insertion/extraction tool is available, which is as simple to use as the standard BNC tool.
Back Module Installation
Back modules are easily connected to the frame utilizing alignment pins and captive machine screws.
The Selenio system redundant controller module provides control and management for the entire system. Functions include provisioning, status, fault management and supervisory control. Integral SDI/ASI and Ethernet switching with external routing provides N+1 redundancy.
Each controller includes two 1000Base-T Ethernet interfaces. One interface provides an IP connection for system control and firmware upgrades, as well as for monitoring purposes. The second 1000Base-T Ethernet interface is enabled for video and audio data applications with an optional plug-in sub-module, and may be provided with an RJ-45 or optional SFP fiber transceiver.
One controller is included with every frame and features two RJ-45 connections: one for control and one for video networking applications (utilizing the optional video IP sub module). For optical connectivity in video networking applications, an SFP transceiver option is available for the controller module. A secondary controller can be provided with the appropriate connectivity at the time of order or easily added in the field.
Inputs, outputs and functionality can be easily increased in Selenio application modules by simply adding video and audio expansion modules.
Video and audio signals are connected internally over bidirectional high-speed busses — eliminating external cabling. When an expansion module is installed beside an application module, an automatic connection takes place. The corresponding block diagram in the graphical user interface is updated, giving the user setup, control and monitoring functions.
One video expansion module can be placed beside a frame sync or video conversion application module. Five back-module options provide interfaces for electrical and optical inputs and outputs and relay bypass for critical signals upon power loss.
For audio expansion, up to two analog audio expansion modules and/or digital audio expansion modules can be placed beside a frame sync or video conversion application module. Audio expansion modules can enable additional audio processing such as Dolby® codecs and DTS Neural Loudness Control.
When viewing the front of the frame, video expansion modules are added to the left of the application module (lower slot numbers). Audio expansion modules are added to the right of the application module (higher slot numbers).
