Euro Media Group has selected Axon's Neuron Network Attached Processors as it looks to move towards IP media production.
The deal will see ten NAP systems deployed by EMG’s Dutch entity United to manage IP signal processing and provide SDI to IP gateways in new OB trucks set for rollout in 2019.
Neuron is Axon’s next generation of signal processing designed to address the needs of complex IP and hybrid-IP environments. It supports the latest industry standards, handling uncompressed SD, HD, 3G and UHD signals based on the ST2022-6 and ST2110 specifications.
It will be used in conjunction with Axon's Cerebrum control and monitoring platform in order to provide FGPA-based processing power and legacy SDI gateways necessary to support EMG's plans for a fully distributed media infrastructure.
“Axon is at the forefront of IP solution development and we’re eager to deploy the new Neuron NAPs into our next generation facilities,” said René Delwel, United’s managing director. “Neuron provides us with the full functionality and guaranteed bandwidth performance we need to drive forward our leading international broadcast services.”
“This deal is the next step in our close cooperation with EMG as its strategic technology partner and confirms our joint commitment to a disruptive IP roadmap,” added Karel van der Flier, CCO of Axon.
