Matrox And STAGETEC Demo New Control System For Simplified ST 2110 And IPMX IP Signal Management

At IBC 2023, Video technology innovator Matrox Video and signal management solution provider STAGETEC will jointly demonstrate STAGETEC’s Stagenet 1.0 IP signal management control software, which makes IP management easy.

The demonstration — featuring Stagenet 1.0 and Matrox ConvertIP DRH converters in a 1 Gb/s network environment — will show video professionals how they can overcome the complexity of IP signal management and transition to IP operations without network engineering expertise or dedicated staff to manage the network infrastructure.

The Technology
Stagenet is a control software system that makes IP signal management accessible for non-IT experts through an intuitive user interface. In the background, Stagenet takes care of a wide range of technical aspects of IP signal management, including:

  • Controlling network devices and signal flow.
  • Setting up stream format in IP senders.
  • Managing multicast addresses.
  • Setting up the IP receiver.
  • Controlling baseband-related parameters, such as microphone preamplifiers.
  • Monitoring all of the above.

Stagenet also can act as a base for traditional broadcast control systems, meaning operators can let go of complex IP details and let Stagenet take care of them.

Matrox ConvertIP baseband-to-IP converters make it possible to integrate new AV-over-IP technology, including JPEG XS and IPMX, into existing video infrastructure while leveraging 1G workflows — perfect for an ultra-low-latency experience. ConvertIP Series devices enable interoperable, flexible, and scalable IP-based video production, delivering lossless, zero-latency 4K signals across the network.

Together, Stagenet and ConvertIP provide the flexibility and scalability needed to deploy high-quality, low-latency JPEG XS/ST 2110/IPMX IP video installations.

The Demo
In the demonstration featuring JPEG XS compressed video, Stagenet 1.0 will link all video devices over a 1 Gb/s network. Visitors will see how Stagenet 1.0 enables comprehensive command over Matrox ConvertIP units, which will govern video distribution across the entire stand. Beyond managing video screens, Stagenet will seamlessly integrate all audio devices by STAGETEC and Merging Technologies across the stand and will also manage Arista switches, unifying components into a single system. Through Stagenet’s highly intuitive browser-based user interface with automatic detection, attendees will be able to easily add new devices without needing any technical skills to find new signals. Stagenet prioritizes user convenience.
