Sony joins Advanced Media Workflow Association IP standards adoption project
Sony has announced that it is joining the Networked Media Incubator (NMI) project of the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA). The NMI project was created by AMWA to enable open, multi-vendor interoperability in professional media networks.
Their activity focuses on getting tangible results by concentrating on specific technical areas through a series of collaborative activities. They also facilitate virtual and physical exchanges between system developers. The technical goals of the group are guided by the Reference Architecture (RA) published by the Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM).
Sony has been an original member of AMWA, and this participation shows Sony’s expertise and commitment to promoting the adoption of widely supported, open standards to create IP-based Interoperability and accelerate the transition of the industry to IP-based platforms.
“In the same way that we recently joined AIMS to focus, amongst other things, on VSF TR-03 and SMPTE 2022-6, joining the AMWA NMI group today will enable us to work even more closely with other industry leaders to promote the adoption, standardisation, development and refinement of open protocols for media over IP,” says Norbert Paquet, strategic marketing manager, Sony Professional, Sony Europe.
