Evertz To Demo ASPEN as Universal Format for Video/Audio/Metadata Over IP
Evertz will demonstrate ASPEN, as a robust format for encapsulation of uncompressed video over IP on its 570IPG Media IP Gateway module. ASPEN allows for video, audio and ancillary data to be transported individually within and between facilities. ASPEN has been developed in conjunction with leading broadcasters, to address needs of IP transport within a broadcast facility for live production and to other facilities.
ASPEN offers end users the full benefit and flexibility of IP, with a simple and highly scalable method of encapsulating and handling Video, Audio, and Metadata over IP. With ASPEN, the globally deployed Evertz SDVN solution provides a complete set of formats required for Facility, WAN, and Hybrid Facility over WAN applications.
Evertz is collaborating with other vendors for a successful deployment of ASPEN. At NAB 2015, Evertz will be using PacketStorm Communications’ Capture & Replay System to capture ASPEN streams for analysis and quality assurance. Also part of the demonstration will be he 570IPG which encapsulates 18 uncompressed 3G/HD/SD-SDI video signals over IP (using 10GbE) using the ASPEN format. The modular 570IPG allows for the highest density of uncompressed 3G/HD/SD-SDI encapsulations in a 3RU. The 570IPG also offers ultra low latency encapsulation (port to port), which enables it to be used for live production environments where high video quality and latency are concerns.
