Nevion to present managed video services solutions at SMPTE 2011

Hollywood, CA, October 19, 2011 – Nevion, a leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, will showcase its new VideoIPath managed video services solution for IP networks at the 2011 SMPTE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition at booth #317. The event takes place on October 24 – 27 at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, CA. Nevion’s director of product management, Dr. Chin Chye Koh, will present at the conference on ‘Leveraging video services management to enhance video transport’ on Wednesday October 26 in the High Performance Networks session in Salon 1.

Dr. Koh’s presentation will examine how video services management systems can minimize the complexity and new knowledge requirements of deploying IP-based networks, while enabling broadcasters to manage video quality, reduce costs and increase revenue through efficient use of network resources.

Nevion’s VideoIPath solution for managed video services over IP and optical networks are designed to easily facilitate remote production, a key capability in the current climate of increasing, global live broadcasting. VideoIPath for IP contribution networks provides IP video transport with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management. It features comprehensive managed video services for complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics and network inventory. It greatly reduces the cost structure by bringing video services into the IP environment, where scalability is dramatically increasing and port costs are decreasing.

VideoIPath for IP now includes the VS902, a powerful new universal IP video transport platform that accepts any SDI or ASI input and provides both uncompressed encapsulation to IP and a choice of JPEG 2000 or H.264 compression. It offers transport protected by Streaming Intelligent Packet Switching (SIPS), a technology developed by Nevion as a more advanced transport protection method that provides perfect protection switching in addition to packet loss protection. VideoIPath also supports forward error correction (FEC), and provides automatic calculation of the FEC settings needed to meet a desired level of service.

VideoIPath is administered from a Web-based console for comprehensive managed video services. It simplifies the complexity of video-over-IP services by adding a network abstraction layer, allowing users to provision and monitor services without having to consider detailed configuration settings in each network element. By auto-detecting available video resources, VideoIPath can present appropriate video end-points and service profiles to users, enabling them to schedule and initiate connections in an intuitive option-selection process. VideoIPath manages bandwidth by allocating the necessary resources without overbooking.

VideoIPath is also available for optical networks, providing a completely managed video services system for broadcasters’ fiber-based networks. The fully integrated system combines advanced transport hardware for contribution-quality video transport with comprehensive end-to-end control, monitoring and management.
