Nevion and TAG Video Systems are working together to simplify the deployment of IP-based broadcast production solutions.
The partnership involves an integration of the companies’ flagship products, as well as the development of associated delivery and support services.
Nevion’s media orchestration platform, VideoIPath, is already integrated with TAG’s software-based IP multi-viewer offering, which is part of the company’s Realtime Media Performance Platform. The integration enables the optimised routing of video signals across IP networks into the multi-viewer, which also offers probing and monitoring capabilities. VideoIPath will continue to be enhanced to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of TAG’s platform.
Nevion’s software-defined media node, Virtuoso, also integrates with TAG’s multi-viewer, using standards like SMPTE ST 2110, JPEG 2000, and JPEG XS to provide video signals to the platform.
The engineering teams of Nevion and TAG are also working together to provide the best end-to-end solution, with Virtuoso being used as a reference node in TAG’s labs, said the companies.
In addition to the product integrations, the new partnership will see Nevion strengthen its professional service and support capabilities to handle TAG’s platform even more deeply.
Kevin Joyce, zer0 friction officer at TAG said: “The transition to IP workflows has greatly accelerated in the past two years. To provide clients the greatest value, to empower their business, technology providers like TAG and Nevion need to proactively join forces and unite their expertise. This partnership will not only help our customers reduce complexity but will also help enhance both companies’ solutions with the mutual goal to better support our media companies’ business.”
Jan Helgesen, head of product and solutions at Nevion added: “Nevion, together with its parent company Sony, have been developing an ecosystem of solutions, products, services and partnerships called Networked Live to enable broadcasters to enable mission critical live production from anywhere at any scale. This ecosystem is deigned to make it easy for our customers to make the choices that are right for them. This partnership with TAG, which is built on very complementary offerings and years of working together, is therefore an important part of Networked Live.”
