Nevion shows off live IP technology at NAB
Virtual media production infrastructure provider to showcase ease of transition to IP
Oslo, Norway, 2nd March 2016 – This year at the NAB Show Nevion, award-winning provider of virtual media production infrastructure, will be highlighting how broadcasters can transition to IP, with a whole host of interoperability demonstrations based on open industry standards including SMPTE 2022-6 and TR-03. The demos will include equipment from other vendors from the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), under the control of Nevion’s flagship orchestrator, VideoIPath.
Nevion will also be outlining its vision of a virtualized media production, demonstrating how VideoIPath and flagship products like the NX4600 H.264/AVC media gateway are stepping stones in the journey towards fulfilling that vision.
VideoIPath is a service and network management system that brings connection management, service assurance and network inventory capabilities to the broadcast workflow — helping broadcasters boost revenue by optimizing network resources. It uses software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver deterministic, scalable performance demanded by broadcasters when it comes to the transport of media services. VideoIPath also adds flexibility to the network and cost savings through features such as automation and self-service options.
Playing a supporting role on the Nevion stand is the NX4600 Media Gateway compression platform, which offers high-quality H.264/MPEG-4 AVC encoding and decoding. The platform provides a great trade-off between bandwidth usage and low latency, resulting in top video quality, with best-in-class user-friendliness and unrivaled reliability.
Nevion will also be showcasing the full range of its product offering, both baseband and IP, including the latest updates to the Flashlink optical transport range, the VikinX compact hybrid routers, and the cProcessor TS adaptation, processing and multiplexing equipment.
“As a company we’re focused on working with our broadcast clients to provide them with the best IP-based solutions that will ultimately assist in increasing efficiencies and maximizing productivity — whether that is working with them on the transition from baseband to IP, or implementing full IP solutions,” says Geir Bryn-Jensen, CEO, Nevion.
“More and more broadcasters are realizing the benefits of using IP, from cost-efficiency to enhanced flexibility — particularly when you consider the importance of open standards and interoperability, and the role they will place in long-term sustainability.”
Nevion’s booth — SU5510 in the upper South Hall — will also feature the latest in optical and IP transport, both for contribution and in studio, as well as digital terrestrial distribution and monitoring.
