ASPEN Community Exhibits at NAB

The ASPEN Community will have a booth at this year’s NAB 2016. Located in the North Hall (#N1000MR), the booth will host several members of the Community demonstrating interoperability of their ASPEN (SMPTE RDD37:2106) enabled products.

The ASPEN Community is proud to announce that it will have a booth at this year’s NAB 2016. Located in the North Hall (#N1000MR), the booth will host several members of the Community demonstrating interoperability of their ASPEN (SMPTE RDD37:2106) enabled products. The announcement of the demonstration at NAB 2016 is yet another to add to the long list of achievements for the Community. Since the start of the year, two major events (Super Bowl and NBA All-Star) have been produced using IP-based facilities utilizing ASPEN. With the recent publication of SMPTE RDD37, the ASPEN Community decided that NAB would be a perfect venue to demonstrate the progress of its efforts.

The ASPEN Community was formed at IBC 2015 on the basis to promote the benefits of an open-format within IP-based broadcast. The Community provides information exchange between end-users and manufacturers to adopt the open format framework across products and facilities.

ASPEN is an open framework that enables independent flows for video, audio, and metadata in an IP-based broadcast and media facility. ASPEN expands on the MPEG-2 Transport Stream (IEC 13818-1 or ITU-T Rec. H.222.0) standard to include uncompressed UHD/3G/HD/SD video over TS. The ASPEN framework also utilizes open standards for transporting audio (SMPTE ST 302) and metadata (SMPTE ST 2038). SMPTE 2022-2 is used to encapsulate the transport streams into IP.

Members of the ASPEN Community that will be participating in the booth demonstration include: Abekas, Embrionix, Evertz, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Limited Inc., Matrox Electronic Systems Ltd., PacketStorm, Ross Video, Sony, Tektronix, and Vizrt.

In anticipation of the ASPEN interoperability demonstration at NAB 2016, ASPEN Community members have taken the opportunity to share their contributions to the ASPEN Community Booth.

“At NAB 2016, we are proud to demonstrate working prototypes which transmit and receive ASPEN streams for interoperability with other ASPEN products at the ASPEN Community booth,” said Masakazu Yoshimoto, General Manager, Sony.
