Neuron is a next generation signal processing platform that supports 200 Gb/s and 64 channels or 16 UHD channels in a single rack unit. Whether deployed as extremely efficient ‘modular glue’ in a pure native IP infrastructure or to seamlessly bridge legacy SDI technology into an IP environment, Neuron's FGPA-based processing power provides guaranteed bandwidth performance to deliver complex Ultra HD and 8K productions. It also supports the latest industry standards by handling uncompressed SD, HD, 3G and UHD signals based on the ST2022-6 and ST2110 specifications.

The capabilities have been demonstrated broadcasters as part of Axon's IP Innovation Tour. Delivered in conjunction with Sony and EVS, it allowed engineers to experience the very latest hardware and software solutions in a fully kitted out OB truck that visited 16 cities in eight different European countries including The Netherlands, France, Germany and the UK.

Neuron has also been adopted by Cloudbass, which has used the technology to convert an existing 20 camera OB truck from HD-SDI to UHD IP. This enables Cloudbass to offer broadcasters flexible and fast IP workflow.

At IBC2019, Axon will highlight its Cerebrum control and monitoring platform too. Fast becoming the de facto control system for news and OB production, Cerebrum has been adopted by broadcast and OB companies worldwide. Cerebrum’s was part of this year’s Open Golf London Marathon, Champions League, Wimbledon and Dutch and UK Football Leagues. In many cases it was seamlessly integrated with the latest technologies from other manufacturers such as GVG, Arista, EVS, Phabrix and Calrec to provide unified SDI and/or IP workflows.

The Axon booth will also feature the company’s SynView Multiview solution, which is capable of handling both 4K and IP video formats.
