MAGNUM orchestrates network architectures that have hundreds of thousands of IP media flows (ST 2110 based) with over a thousand IP devices to provide dynamic media workflows at a scale unmatched in the industry today. MAGNUM simplifies the complexity of an IP network infrastructure with auto discovery, registration and connection management using NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 specifications.
Evertz’ VUE redefines the user experience when delivering media workflows in the media facility. VUE brings user control into a dynamic operational UI that permits unique contextual interfaces based on production specific tasks. The versatility and flexibility of VUE allows media companies to custom create new and efficient operational workflows for the creation and delivery of content.
Evertz will be participating at this year’s IP Showcase (Room E106/107) demonstration area for ST 2110 and NMOS IS-04/05. Evertz will be presenting a case study on its latest ST 2110 install at M6 on Friday, September 13th at 14:00 in the IP Showcase Theatre (E106).
SCORPION: The Smart Media Processing Platform
SCORPION, Evertz’ Smart Media Processing Platform, has quickly become a fundamental building block for any IP facility. The versatile and extensive SCORPION I/O options for video, audio, and data signal are important for any facility, whether it is 12G/3G/HD-SDI or IP. For IBC 2019, a new SCORPION mini I/O (MIO) modules called MIO-BLADE will be introduced. The MIO-BLADE combines SCORPION platform and Evertz evEDGE services to allow media companies to take advantage of flexible compute engines to run video/audio processing functions as dynamic software services. The MIO-BLADE is the latest addition to Evertz evEDGE compute family to help media companies transition from single-function hardware to the more robust “software as a service” (on generic hardware). With the additional support of contribution encoding/decoding (such as JPEG2000), SCORPION and MIO-BLADE can be used in many applications including media transport over WAN for remote production.
