NAB 2024: Evertz to show updates to its SDVN solution

Evertz will showcase the latest updates to its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solution, which is helping the broadcast industry transition to or expand all-IP infrastructures using SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS, at this year’s NAB Show.

With over 600 installations worldwide, Evertz’ SDVN taps into the company’s wealth of experience in this area over the past decade and offers an end-to-end, format agnostic, versatile solution for moving to IP for both on-premises and the public cloud.

New at NAB 2024 is the NATX-LT, a next-generation network fabric that offers a cost-effective entry point for both core or aggregation requirements in any media facility or mobile deployment. Fully integrated with Evertz’ Magnum-OS, NATX-LT switch fabric offers flexible, format-agnostic and scalable infrastructure options, allowing seamless routing for SMPTE ST 2110 and other media standards.

In addition to NATX-LT, Evertz is introducing its Prefex Media Processing Edge (MPE). This ultra-high-density platform offers the industry’s highest encapsulation IP gateway with processing features while offering video processing features commonly required when transitioning from SDI to ST 2110. This fully featured MPE has the power and flexibility to handle tasks such as frame sync, up/down/cross conversion and audio shuffling – all in a compact 1RU package.

For bulk signal processing and conversion, Evertz will be releasing the new up/down/cross conversion app for the ev670-X30-HW-V2. This will feature up/down/cross conversion (up to UHD), interlace support, HDR conversion using LUT (selectable), video processing, video and audio delay adjustments and audio grooming (4×4, 2×8, and 1×16 combinations).

Evertz will also be showing new features and advanced tools for Magnum-OS, an orchestration, monitoring and analytics platform for SDI, IP, or hybrid facilities. Positioned at the heart of Evertz’ SDVN solution, Magnum-OS is said to simplify workflows, reduce operational costs and increase efficiency by allowing broadcasters to connect facilities, resources and devices together within a city, country or globally. Magnum-OS also supports hybrid workflows where devices or resources are located on premise or in cloud (public or private).

At NAB 2024, Evertz will highlight Magnum-OS’s ability to manage and control the status and configuration of devices and flows within public cloud infrastructure (including AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud), and between cloud and broadcast facilities.

Among the many useful features that Magnum-OS offers is support for third-party devices over NMOS and direct APIs. This allows Magnum-OS to discover and register third-party devices using IS-04 and move flows between devices using IS-05 as connection management. Magnum-OS also provides control of network switches that include Evertz EXE and NATX, Cisco, Arista and cloud-based It manages the link bandwidth between the discovered edge devices and the network switches to ensure reliable switching of ST 2110 flows.

In addition to advanced control and orchestration, Magnum-OS provides comprehensive monitoring and real-time analytics. For NAB 2024, Evertz will be introducing an updated AI/ML log anomaly detection features called LogSNAP, which builds on the real-time analytics in Magnum-OS to perform detection based on learned model to identify root causes for issues based on logs.
