Sony and Evertz dovetail for IP

Evertz’s Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) technology is being shown at IBC working with Sony’s IP Live Production System and Network Media Interface (NMI).

Each demo includes MAGNUM, the SDVN Orchestration and Control product, and Sony’s IP Live Production switching Sony NMI working over Evertz high capacity switch fabrics.

Eric Fankhauser, the vice president of product development at Evertz, said: “It’s great that two industry innovators can work together to deliver an integrated IP solution from production to playout based on Evertz SDVN and IP Infrastructure solutions and Sony’s IP Live Production System. This collaboration will certainly help smooth the transition to IP-based facilities and workflows.”

Sony’s Networked Media Interface turns HD and Ultra HD video, audio, and metadata into packets, transmits and clean-switches, in realtime over standard network infrastructures.

Meanwhile, AMC Networks has gone live with a 10GbE playout facility that uses Evertz Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) technology.

Based around the Evertz OvertureRT-LIVE 10GbE-enabled playout server and Mediator MAM/automation software, the system is delivering a portfolio of channels from AMC Networks International – Latin America.

The multi-channel playout facility, considered to be the first of its kind in the world, uses Evertz file-based workflows and 10GbE IP infrastructure including two 46Tb/s EXE-VSR IP routing cores, multiple 10GbE enabled OvertureRT-LIVE integrated playout severs, 570IPG media gateways and 3067VIP10G 10GbE multi-image display processors. 3.C20
