Nevion is updating its flagship VideoIPath media orchestration platform to include tally distribution, salvos, alias naming, endpoint grouping, destination monitoring, and a soft-panel application for operators.
The new broadcast control functionality will provide a consistent system for both broadcast control and network orchestration, supporting the complete production lifecycle (engineering, set-up, production, tear-down), said Nevion.
According to the company, the initial focus will be on providing essential broadcast control functionality for IP-based broadcast facilities, MCRs, production (OB) trucks and other mobile production units.
Nevion VideoIPath routes video, audio and data across both SDI and IP networks (IGMP and SDN), connecting locations, equipment and functionality, added the company. It is also widely deployed by broadcasters and telecom service providers in both LANs and WANs (local and wide area networks) applications throughout the world.
The release will also add parent company Sony’s NS-BUS IP-based management protocol to the list of equipment interfaces already supported by VideoIPath, enabling it to work with Sony’s hardware panels (MKS-R1620 /R1630/R3210/R4020) and offer connection management to Sony’s SDI-IP converters (NXLK-IP51Y and NXLK-IP50Y) and XVS series switchers.
Arne-Johan Martinsen, VideoIPath product manager at Nevion said: “As well as bringing immediate benefits to both existing and new customers, this enhancement paves the way towards our vision of a fully distributed production in which resources can be involved in production, almost regardless of their location.”
The updated ViedoIPath will be showcase at NAB Show next month.
