Lawo’s managed platform for IP-based media infrastructures, Home, has had its AMWA NMOS capability confirmed during the latest round of JT-NM tests in Wuppertal, Germany.
During the JT-NM (Joint Taskforce on Network Media) sessions last month, Home successfully passed all tests in the Controller and Registry category. As a result, the platform is now officially able to access NMOS registries and, conversely, to act as a registry for NMOS devices.
The JT-NM test results confirm Home’s compatibility with the NMOS IS-04 specification for discovery and registration of IP-networked devices. Regarding the IS-05 device connection management specification, Home is able to monitor and perform NMOS switching operations, said Lawo.
“Confirmed NMOS IS-04/05 compatibility is an important milestone for the Home management platform,” said Axel Kern, Lawo’s senior director cloud and infrastructure solutions. “Broadcast, corporate and AV users now have even more options for outfitting their infrastructure and intuitively connecting and managing all components through a unified and fully resilient singular interface.”
Phil Myers, Lawo’s chief technology officer, added: “Lawo will announce at IBC 2022 that all of our current video and audio products—including a few that recently reached end of life—are now Home natives. And thanks to the newly introduced NMOS compatibility, Home environments become even more attractive for operators who no longer have the leisure to configure their network manually.”
