Evertz Participates IP Interoperability Demonstrations at IBC

Evertz will be participating in a multiple IP interoperability demonstrations at IBC2016 The company, with its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions, continues to demonstrate its commitment to open formats and standards for uncompressed video, audio, and metadata over IP.

Evertz will be participating with ten other ASPEN Community members on the ASPEN Community stand located at 8.D12. 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 (SMPTE RDD 37). 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.

Evertz and the ASPEN Community are promoting a road map that enables facilities deploying scalable IP-based systems today using ASPEN (SMPTE RDD 37) with a path to the harmonization format under consideration for SMPTE 2110.

Evertz is also participating in the AMWA, EBU, SMPTE, and VSF interop in the IBC IP Interoperability Zone (8.D10) with VSF TR-03, which includes RFC 4175, AES67, and PTP. 

After a successful interop in Houston, TX at the end of August 2016, Evertz will demonstrate progress being made with VSF TR-03 and TR-04. The company's participation in the IBC IP Interoperability Zone also highlights its support of the path from TR-03 and TR-04 as recommendations to the SMPTE 2110 family of standards.

Evertz will be part of a multi vendo-interop with Arista Networks (8.A11) using SMPTE 2022-6.

With a number of public interops at IBC 2016, Evertz is committed to providing solutions that are open format and standards based. With over 80 global deployments of its SDVN solution, Evertz is an industry leader in IP for both compressed and uncompressed UHD/3G/HD/SD applications. With the maturity and footprint of Evertz’ SDVN, Evertz has made IP available here and now.
