Hitachi Kokusai Demonstrates ST 2110 Studio Production Workflow

At the NAB Show 2024, Hitachi Kokusai is showcasing a new Media over IP solution that moves uncompressed SDI video signals onto SMPTE ST 2110 networks through a new interface kit. Developed by Hitachi Kokusai, the new CU7K-MoIP ST 2110 interface kit establishes an ST 2110 studio production workflow for customers that moves camera signals directly onto on-prem IP networks or into the cloud without compressing signals and affecting picture quality.

Hitachi Kokusai’s CU7K-MoIP interface solution is a software-defined System on Chip (SoC) that performs advanced processing functions to prepare SDI signals (up to 12G) for IP transport. The dual-port, 25GbE solution can move one 4K or up to four HD uncompressed signals onto ST 2110 IP or cloud networks, with ST 2022-7 hitless merge functionality to provide network path redundancy. The ST 2022-7 specification supports the carriage of redundant streams across IP and cloud networks that borrow lost packets from each other for stream reassembly as they move through the network.

The CU7K-MoIP is added to Hitachi camera control units to receive and process the streams for translation to uncompressed ST 2110 networks, with Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support built into the SoC to ensure proper synchronization of video, audio and data. The CU7K-MoIP is compatible with all current-generation Hitachi 4K and HD cameras, include the SK-UHD-7000 Series of 4K/UHD cameras and the Z-HD6500 multi-format HD camera.
