The SMPTE ST 2022-6 standard enables products from different manufacturers to send and receive high bit-rate video signals over IP networks, with the capability to support both HD-SDI and 3G-SDI video signal formats. Harmonic’s support of ST 2022-6 looks to ease the migration toward IP-based infrastructure for broadcasters and production companies.

Harmonic will showcase this support at the upcoming IBC 2015 show, specifically demonstrating CAPEX and OPEX gains from Harmonic-enabled IP-based workflows.
