Nevion Virtuoso passes JT-NM SMPTE ST 2110 testing -

standard for essence-based transport of media over IP

Nevion`s software-defined media node Virtuoso is one of the products in its category to have been successfully tested for the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for essence-based transport of media over IP. This testing shows broadcasters, media organizations, service providers and other users that the product will work in a multi-vendor environment in an IP media network.

Since the initial parts of SMPTE ST 2110 were first published, many equipment vendors have claimed support for the standard. Even those claims were not always a guarantee that the equipment will work in a multi-vendor environment. For that reason, encouraged by a number of broadcasting organizations, the EBU (European Broadcast Union) and IRT (Institut für Rundfunktechnik GmbH) have come together to create and administer a testing process sponsored by the JT-NM (Joint Task Force on Networked Media). The program offers purchasers of IP based equipment greater, more documented insight into how vendor equipment aligns to the SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2059 standards.

The tests established that Nevion Virtuoso successfully pass the interoperability tests for SMPTE ST 2110-10 (system timing, based on SMPTE ST 2059), ST 2110-20 (uncompressed video), ST 2110-30 (digital audio), and ST 2110-40 (ancillary data), both as a sender and receiver. Furthermore, Nevion Virtuoso was chosen to be one of the reference devices in many of the interoperability tests.

Nevion will be displaying its JT-NM Tested Badge at the NAB Show, 11 April 2019.
