Nevion enhances IP offerings at IBC
Video-over-IP is becoming ubiquitous within sport broadcast, whether as a component of backhaul or distribution operations. That is one of the reasons Nevion is introducing a new video services solution suite at IBC.
The company says the VS902 breaks new ground in flexible, protected video-over-IP service. The speed, processing capacity and level of integration of Nevion’s VS902 creates a video-over-IP solution that dramatically reduces CAPEX and OPEX. The platform can map up to four channels of HD, SD or ASI onto Gigabit Ethernet or 10Gigabit Ethernet, either uncompressed or JPEG 2000 – compressed, protected with FEC, with Nevion’s SIPS protection, or without protection.
IBC attendees will also see enhancements to VideoIPath, the video services management platform that Nevion introduced at NAB 2011. It now includes an MVPN control infrastructure, a network topology modeling capability, and an application for equipment inventory management.
Also look for VS954, a single-channel, h.264 contribution-quality; 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, 8- and 10-bit codecs with ASI and IP network interfaces and the VS906 audio and data contribution codec for IP. The VS906 provides linear or compressed audio transmission with mapping to IP. An analogue version features four stereo analogue audio inputs and outputs with 24-bit resolution at up to 96kHz. The digital version features four AES digital audio inputs and outputs plus two MADI digital multichannel audio inputs and outputs or four E1/T1 data ports.
Finally, a new Flashlink module being introduced at IBC is a building block in Nevion’s optical network video services solution. This multiplexer, installed at each node of an optical ring or other network configuration, is capable of adding, dropping, or passing signals that move flexibly through the network.
