​Evertz Promotes Openess To IP Routes

Evertz says that its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solution continues to demonstrate its commitment to open formats and standards for uncompressed video, audio, and metadata over IP.

Evertz says it is working toward IP production within ASPEN and AIMS and claims to have over 80 deployments of its SDVN solution.

ASPEN is described as an open framework based on the MPEG-2 Transport Stream but including 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 says the ASPEN Community are promoting a roadmap 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 also participated in the AMWA, EBU, SMPTE, and VSF interop demo at IBC with VSF TR-03, which includes RFC 4175, AES67, and PTP.

“Our participation in the IBC IP Interoperability Zone our support of the roadmap from TR-03 and TR-04 as recommendations to the SMPTE 2110 family of standards,” Evertz said.
