JT-NM Test Confirms HOME’s AMWA NMOS Compatibility, DirectOut Will Soon Be HOME-Native

Lawo announced that this year’s round of JT-NM tests in Wuppertal, Germany, has confirmed HOME’s full AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 compatibility in the Controller and Registry category. During these sessions, DirectOut’s Managing Director and CTO, Claudio Becker-Foss, furthermore stated that DirectOut devices will soon be available as HOME natives.

During the JT-NM (Joint Taskforce on Network Media) sessions in August 2022, Lawo’s HOME management platform for IP infrastructures successfully passed all tests in the Controller and Registry category. As a result, HOME is now officially able to access NMOS registries and, conversely, to act as a registry for NMOS devices.

HOME is designed to connect, manage and secure all aspects and instances of live production environments. It provides the tools and centralized services for swift and effective interaction of engineers with their tools. HOME is cloud-native by design and ready to run anywhere, irrespective of the system’s size. With HOME, the cloud starts on campus, private and locally. It turns an array of devices, setups, sites, hubs and data centers into a powerful, agile network — quickly and in a perfectly secure way.

The JT-NM test results confirm HOME’s compatibility with the NMOS IS-04 specification for discovery and registration of IP-networked devices. Regarding the IS-05 device connection management specification, HOME is furthermore able to monitor and perform NMOS switching operations.

Operators now effectively have three options for leveraging the power, convenience and security features provided by HOME: they can acquire Lawo devices, HOME-native (“[email protected]”) third-party devices, and connect NMOS-compatible devices to the network.

One final take-away from the JT-NM sessions was that the security features of all submitted devices were also tested. As far as Lawo products are concerned, the company states that no efforts are spared to reach a state of compliance. In light of HOME’s impressive track record so far, this is clearly not an empty promise.
