​JT-NM Adds To Testing And Badging Program

The Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) announced today that it will be enhancing its JT-NM Tested program to improve transparency and to foster even greater industry participation.

Standards validation of vendor test results will be confirmed at a testing event scheduled for the week of March 16. The overall results will be made available to the industry via a published catalogue of results and via badges that participants can display on their booths at NAB 2020.

Testing of broadcast controllers and registries is new in this round of tests. These test results will enhance validation on implementations of select portions of SMPTE ST 2110, AMWA NMOS specifications, and the JT-NM TR-1001-1.

The Joint Task Force is made up of a consortium of industry partners including the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), and the Video Services Forum (VSF).

The testing and validation process is open to any vendor producing equipment that makes use of the relevant portions of the aforementioned standards.
