Are you looking to control your complete media network and orchestrate the services running on it? Are you wondering how to make optimum use of resources, be it bandwidth, equipment or functionality?
Nevion’s VideoIPath is your answer!
VideoIPath is a convergent orchestration and SDN (software defined networking) control software system
VideoIPath makes it easy to route video, audio and data across networks, connecting locations, equipment and functionality. No need for expertise – VideoIPath manages the underlying complexity and the resource capacity!
VideoIPath enables resources to be pooled and shared within the network (infrastructure virtualization), and functionality to be reconfigured or changed on software-defined media nodes (media function virtualization).
VideoIPath can collect the monitoring data from all the equipment throughout the media network, aggregate it together with other elements and present meaningful information about the status of the network and services
Developed by experts in IT, broadcast and telecom networks, VideoIPath is being used daily for a variety of applications by broadcasters, service providers and other organizations across the world, including BT, BBC, CBC Canada, France Télévisions, Optus, Singtel, TV 2 Norway, and many more.
With VideoIPath, the production team can set-up contribution links between locations on their own, both in a planned and ad-doc manner. Users just select the source and destination(s), pick the profile needed (e.g. what type of compression and protection to use), set the date and time(s), and let VideoIPath manage all the underlying complexity.
VideoIPath allows production planners to design workflows, well ahead of events or shows. All the connectivity, media-flows, processing and salvos can be planned and tested graphically, without needing to worry about the physical aspects of the network. When the production needs to take place, the pre-configured workflow can be set-up at the touch of a button.
In a live-production environment, the team in the gallery can continue to use familiar control panels, thanks to VideoIPath’s support for industry-standard interfaces. VideoIPath also offers a touch-screen panel that can run on computers and tablets. So the production team can work as they always have done, even as the underlying media network evolves.
VideoIPath is the solution to network architects’ network management and control headache. VideoIPath supports both centralized and distributed architectures; automatic routing, SDN, and hybrids; media and data; and IP LANs and WANs. VideoIPath also manages bandwidth, ports and other capacity issues.
VideoIPath provides advanced monitoring and fault-recovery capabilities, enabling support operations to a ensure service continuity. These capabilities include graphical alarm management, root cause detection, historical logs, and network to service correlation, as well as manual and automatic re-routing.
VideoIPath makes it easy for operations to set-up and manage the installed base, for example by enabling planned maintenance of equipment, and the roll-out of software and firmware upgrades. VideoIPath enables operations to identify services affected, and re-route them proactively.
