A demo in Hall 2 is showing how manufacturers can apply a test system for the various flavours of SMPTE’s new media over IP networks standard, ST 2110.
The set-up, on the Video Clarity stand, features IP network transport, IP network emulation, media flow analysis, and quality and performance testing for uncompressed video, audio and ancillary data.Macnica Technology is providing the IP transport technology.
The company’s transmit and receive devices are designed to augment or replace SDI-based equipment when delivering multiple types of high-quality, contribution-level content.
PacketStorm Communications is providing the IP network emulation which is simulating actual network and media over IP analysis conditions to measure flow characteristics.
Video Clarity’s RTM real-time monitor is providing the source video playout and is testing the source against the network output.
The RTM system plays uncompressed content while continuously measuringaudio/video quality, as well as lip sync and loudness parameters.
The ST 2110 suite of standards (-10, -20, -21, -30, and -40) is currently in the final draft stage.
