​Nevion Extends IP Support In Virtuoso

The range of enhancements to Nevion flagship software-defined media node platform, Virtuoso, includes IP media edge features, designed for where IP LAN meets IP WAN.

Originally launched at IBC2016, Nevion Virtuoso now includes enhanced SMPTE 2110 support (10/20/21/30/31/40) with a new multichannel audio digital interface (MADI) to and from SMPTE 2110 30/31. Nevion Virtuoso also features SMPTE ST 2022-7/SIPS protection for audio, audio gain and delay handling, pre-compressed audio IP and automatic Dolby E re-alignment. A further addition to the platform’s functionality is the new break-before-make (BBM) clean switching capability that enables fast switching between sources.

Nevion Virtuoso also has new IP media edge features, designed for where IP LAN meets IP WAN. These include a firewall for network isolation, network address translations, SMPTE ST 2022-7/SIPS hitless protection, unicast to multicast conversion, RTP /IP monitoring, UDP/IP to RTP/IP conversion and bitrate policing.

Johnny Dolvik, chief product and development officer for Nevion, said: “Nevion Virtuoso has seen a huge growth in its capabilities since it was launched at IBC two years ago. We’re committed to ensuring our flagship solution incorporates current standards, while looking to the future to integrate upcoming changes that will allow more leaner and nimbler production for our customers.”

The company will be demonstrating an implementation on the Nevion Virtuoso of the new RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) protocol, defined by the VSF to provide protection on the internet where Quality of Service can be an issue.

It will also be showing on Nevion Virtuoso the BISS/CA encryption standard. Designed to minimize the risk of piracy of live content by strengthening transport security, this allows cryptographic entitlements to be transported, together with the live video content, in-band. It also enables the rights holder to grant or revoke usage rights in real-time.

At IBC, Nevion Virtuoso will be used in demonstrations on the booths of Arista, Cisco, EBU, Phabrix, Tektronix and the TICO Alliance.

In addition, Nevion will show Virtuoso as part of the SMPTE ST 2110 demonstrations on the IP Showcase at IBC2018.
