The Virtuoso TICO Media Function provides visually lossless lightweight compression (quarter the bit rate) transport of UHD and 4K signals with sub-frame latency.
The Nevion TICO Media Function enables Nevion Virtuoso to provide cost-effective transport of 12 Gb/s 4K/UHD video over an existing 3G-SDI infrastructure, or over 10GE IP networks using SMPTE 2022-6/7.
The Media Function runs on the Virtuoso High Bit Rate Media Accelerator and supports both SDI streams via video SFPs and uncompressed video/audio IP streams via 10GE.
Dual hand-off on 10GE and SMPTE 2022-7 is supported for network redundancy, answering the need for high availability. In a SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) configuration, each accelerator can perform the IP adaptation of 1 UHD/4K signal (4 x 3G-SDI) in each direction. This provides a total of 4 UHD ingress and 4 UHD egress per 1RU on the 4 slot Virtuoso M4 Appliance
