IBC 2019: Lawo passes JT-NM Interop test
By Paul Gallo
Lawo participated in the ultimate test for IP-based equipment, the recently run ‘JT-NM Interop’, organised by VSF, SMPTE, AMWA and EBU, and passed, fulfilling the testing criteria in the categories ST2110 and ST2022-7. All successfully tested systems will now be part of the JT-NM Tested Catalogue, published at IBC in Amsterdam.
The ‘JT-NM Tested’ programme offers prospective purchasers of IP-based equipment greater, more documented insight into how vendor equipment aligns with the SMPTE ST-2110 and
SMPTE ST-2059 standards. The JT-NM Tested Catalogue documents the test procedures, test equipment and results of the JT-NM Tested event that was held during the week of 19 August 2019 at the Riedel HQ facilities in Wuppertal, Germany.
This programme highlights how vendor equipment conforms to key parts of SMPTE standards, providing prospective purchasers and users with a reference as they begin their equipment evaluation and qualification process.
