The SAM IP Routing System offers the most complete, flexible and cost effective IP routing solution on the market today. SAM’s pragmatic approach has resulted in a topology equally suited to pure IP or hybrid IP/SDI systems.
The hub of SAMs IP System is the IPEDGE-SRV (Server-based Controller) of which there are two variants. These are the IPEDGE-SRV-D & IPEDGE-SRV-S for dual redundant or single controller systems respectively. The IPEDGE-SRV is supplied with all system software pre-installed.
The system software consists of two main elements:
SAM’s Standard Router Controller allowing control using existing PC client software and/or the Luna range of hardware control panels and an IP Router Adapter package for linking all the IP Edge Devices to the Standard Router Controller. A third software package, the IP Network Monitor, is for installation on a PC/Terminal for system configuration.
SAMs IP router system is also fully compatible with our overall equipment control and monitoring system using Rollcall protocols. This includes logic and decision engines and facility and equipment mapping capabilities.
Third Party Control - The IPEDGE-SRV also exposes SW-P-02 & SW-P-08 router control protocols over Ethernet for control by third party clients.
SAM has the most extensive range of IP enabled products on the market today.

SAM’s fully integrated IP Routing Controller has been designed for use with standard COTS IP Routers and is fully scalable for both IP and SDI/IP hybrid solutions. Once configured, operation and client control is indistinguishable from traditional SDI systems.
IPEDGE-SRV is fully compatible with all SAM existing control clients (Workbench/Live Runner) and Luna range of 1U and 2U LED and LCD control panels. These are all configured in the normal way and connect to the IPEDGE-SRV over Ethernet.
IPEDGE-SRV is also compatible with all RollPod hardware devices and RollMap user configurable GUI software.
The IPEDGE-SRV exposes SW-P-02 & SW-P-08 router control protocols over Ethernet for control by third-party clients.
Includes all SAM products which have 10/25/40GbE IP I/O options.
IP enabled product ranges:
The IP System implements ‘Destination Switching’ at the edge devices. This means the IP switch can be asynchronous and the underlying IP fabric is not media or format aware. ‘Make-before-Break’* can be implemented with minimal extra bandwidth but this is only for the period of the timing alignment. Alternatively, ‘Break-before-Make’* (i.e. no extra bandwidth) can be implemented giving rise to a single video frame repeat. (Mode* is set by the Network Controller per destination)
Dual IP Ports
All Edge Devices feature dual IP ports enabling SMPTE ST.2022-7 stream redundancy.
The IPEDGE-SRV has been designed to work with any nonblocking ‘commercial-off-theshelf’ IP Router that is IGMPv3 (host to switch) compliant and PIM-SSM (Protocol Independent Multicast & Source Specific Multicast) between routers and subnets.
