IPMX Reaches Major Milestone With Finalization Of Key Standards Documents

The Video Services Forum (VSF), in collaboration with the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), is proud to announce a significant milestone in the development of the Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX) standards.

Concluding a rigorous VSF testing event held at the Matrox Video facility in Munich, where multiple manufacturers with IPMX implementations validated core specifications, IPMX has now achieved a crucial phase of maturity. This event marks the transition of many of the essential IPMX documents — encompassing critical aspects of audio and video transport, HDCP, control plane requirements, and system timing — from draft to finalized specifications. This pivotal step not only underscores the robust, collaborative effort behind IPMX but also signals a new era of innovation and interoperability in the Pro AV market.

The testing event heralds the release of several key IPMX specifications, a milestone in the protocol's development. These include vital documents for Uncompressed Video (TR-10-2), Constant Bit Rate (CBR) Video (TR-10-11), PCM Audio (TR-10-3), System Timing and Definitions (TR-10-1), HDCP Key Exchange Protocol (HKEP) Copy Protection (TR-10-5), and NMOS requirements specific to IPMX (TR-10-8).

The journey of IPMX towards becoming a comprehensive solution for the Pro AV market continues with fervor. Work is ongoing on aspects such as interoperable USB extension, profiles, and detailed testing requirements. AIMS and VSF, as well as the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), creators of NMOS, remain committed to this collaborative effort, with the aim of announcing additional significant developments in the near future. Anticipation is high for potential updates and breakthroughs that may align with major industry events like InfoComm later this year. These efforts underscore a continued dedication to evolving IPMX into a fully realized, open standard that meets the diverse and interconnected needs of the modern Pro AV landscape.
