IP in broadcast facilities – in studios, campuses and beyond

How to create a reliable IP-based network in studios and across campuses.

How can you create a reliable IP-based network in your studios and across campuses without having to scrap existing baseband investments or getting locked into a proprietary solution?

Nevion has the answer!

Why work with Nevion

When it comes to IP in the facilities, and you need a trusted advisor to help you separate hype from reality. 

Best of all, Nevion can make it possible for you to move to an all IP and virtualized remote production environment incrementally.

IP Experts

Nevion is uniquely positioned to help you because we have been delivering broadcast infrastructure networks since 1996 and IP media networks since 2006.

Pioneers of IP in the facilities

In 2015, Nevion created the first fully standards-based multi-vendor IP studio network for the seminal VRT-EBU LiveIP project. And in 2017, Nevion delivered the world’s first, multi-site IP production facility network for TV 2, and early example of Nevion’s vision of a virtualized live production

Shaping standards

Nevion is a founding member of AIMS (The Alliance for IP Media Solutions) and was involved in defining the SMPTE 2110 standard for essence-based transport in the facilities.

What do Nevion’s solutions do?

Open IP standards: including IGMP, Openflow, NETCONF, SMPTE 2022-6/7, SMPTE 2210, with no proprietary lock-in

Software upgradable to future standards

Baseband compatible: connects baseband network and equipment seamlessly to the IP network (SDI to/from IP)

Easy management: ensures that the migration to IP is transparent to those who need to manage the network

Familiar network control: compatible with existing control panels

Software Defined Network (SDN) for added control.

High-reliability and protection

Secure, with management layer controlling access to signals

Nevion and 3rd party IP routers supported

Supports clean-switching on the de-adaption layer.

Familiar, proven and scalable architecture: supports both the centralized (e.g. star) and distributed network approaches (e.g. spine-leaf).

Simple hand-over to other IP networks: any router in the network can forward the packets to any other connected network, even if the latter is not SDN based.

Extensible to remote locations: other locations are effectively extensions of the central studio/campus.

Services: before, during and after the implementation, including design and architecting, to ensure you get the right solution, first time!
