Fox NE&O Demos Uncompressed Video-Over-IP
Proof-of-concept uses Nevion VS902
January 29, 2014
—Fox Networks Engineering and Operations and Nevion have demonstrated a proof of concept for
frame-accurate switching of live uncompressed HD-SDI video over IP, according to the vendor. Nevion said its VS902 multiformat contribution codec for IP/Ethernet networks
was used to encapsulate two uncompressed IP streams using SMPTE 2022-6.
“We believe that professional media networking over IP is the future
of broadcast,” said Thomas Edwards, vice president of engineering and development at the Fox
NE&O. “Transporting uncompressed live HD video over an Ethernet
infrastructure can deliver greater flexibility and cost-savings for
broadcasters. We carried out this proof-of-concept in conjunction with
Nevion to test some of the video processing requirements of professional
The VS902 is a flexible, modular platform for transporting
video. It provides linear, multi-channel
encapsulation of uncompressed SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI signals, as
well as JPEG 2000 compression for bandwidth-limited
circuits. It can encapsulate up to two HD-SDI feeds over a 1 Gigabit
Ethernet network using JPEG 2000 or four uncompressed HD-SDI feeds over a
10 Gigabit Ethernet link. Protection technologies, incude forward error correction and Streaming Intelligent
IP media networks built on Nevion
technology include Azzurro HD, All Mobile Video, GigaContent, Media
Broadcast, Sky Italia, Onside TV Production and CNBC Asia Pacific.
