Evertz to Showcase Virtual IP Media Services at NAB 2019

Evertz’ evEDGE Virtual IP Media Services platform enables agile operational workflows with its flexible library of media services and support for agile hardware platforms.

Evertz evEDGE virtual IP media services support a comprehensive selection of processing functions which can be provisioned based on evolving workflow requirements. The flexibility enabled by evEDGE allows highly efficient and adaptable workflows for every application.

New for NAB 2019, evEDGE's agile hardware platform support has been expanded to Evertz' SCORPION, Smart Media Processing platform.

SCORPION is a high density signal conversion, routing, aggregation and transport platform which utilizes miniature interface modules enabling a customized SCORPION solution for every application.

Unlike fixed function processing hardware, evEDGE services can be run on agile hardware platforms. Processing functions are no longer permanently coupled to the underlying hardware platform. evEDGE supports virtual IP media services over agile hardware platforms including FPGA compute blades, x86 COTS servers and the Cloud.

"Having a platform that can be provisioned with IP media services has given broadcasters a new tool to address environments with rapidly changing workflows," said Nick Knez, Director of Processing and Timing Products at Evertz. "evEDGE, with its comprehensive library of media services and support for agile hardware platforms is the leading virtual IP media platform available today, and its expanded hardware platform support that now includes SCORPION, gives broadcasters even more flexibility with how they adapt to evolving workflow requirements."
