Ross Video Helps NEP Australia Transition To IP Production

NEP Australia has selected Ross Video as a key technology partner to support the company’s shift to an all IP-enabled production infrastructure based on SMPTE ST-2110. To support its migration to live production over IP infrastructures, NEP has purchased multiple AIMS-compliant solutions from Ross Video including the recently announced Newt family of IP signal converters.

NEP Australia itself is transitioning from an SDI to an all-IP infrastructure for outside broadcast and live production from two IP-enabled centralized production hubs in Sydney and Melbourne that allow for remote software-centric production. With its ability to work in a wide range of environments that could include Ross DashBoard, NMOS IS-04/IS-05, EmBER+/RAVENNA, and a published JSON API for custom integrations, the Ross Video Newt will help future proof the edge of NEP’s IP production infrastructure.

“Even for broadcasters like NEP that are fully committed to building an all-IP infrastructure, this is not an overnight transition,” said Nestor Amaya, Director of IP Solutions and Infrastructure Product Marketing, Ross Video. “We are pleased to work with NEP to deliver future-proof solutions at their network edge that flexibly address their signal conversion needs with Software Defined Production.”

Marc Segar, Director of Technology, NEP Australia, said that they were initially attracted to the Newt’s ability to seamlessly integrate with NEP’s existing Lawo VSM control system.

“We collaborated to create a solution to effectively drive our video monitors, and Newt was born,” Segar said, adding that the goal is to implement a fully ST-2110-compliant IP video network.
