The Virtuoso SDI-IP ST2022 Media Function enables reliable adaptation and transport of SD, HD and 3G-SDI signals over IP without any quality degradation.
For wide-area contribution applications, the software supports adaptation of baseband SDI signals to IP according to SMPTE 2022-6. For adaptation in IP-based MCR or production environments, the software includes a built-in frame synchronizer with PTP/SMPTE 2059 support and audio embedding/de-embedding to AES67 and ST2110-30/31.
The Media Function runs on the Virtuoso HBR Accelerator and supports both SDI streams via video SFPs and uncompressed video/audio IP streams via 10GE. In addition to Nevion’s proven dual port video SFPs, Nevion has developed a quad port video breakout cable that provides two electrical outputs and two electrical inputs making the Virtuoso platform the high-density choice for uncompressed video and audio adaptation.
For applications that require high availability and network redundancy, dual hand-off on 10GE and SMPTE 2022-7 is supported for all streams. In a SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) configuration, each HBR accelerator can perform IP adaptation of up to 4 HD signals in each direction, providing, for example, 16 input and 16 output HD signals per 1RU in the Virtuoso FA Appliance, and 32 input and 32 output HD signals per 1RU in the Virtuoso MI Appliance.
