IBC 2017: Evertz, Ross Video demo commitment to open IP standards
Evertz (Hall 1.D31 and F29) and Ross Video (11.C10, B08, and C23) will jointly demonstrate the successful implementation of AMWA’s latest specification for open connection management in IP control systems at IBC 2017. Show attendees can see the Evertz MAGNUM orchestration and control system directing the Ross RAPTOR-EDGE IP gateway via the AMWA IS-04 and IS-05 specifications for NMOS discovery, registration, and connection management APIs.
Both Evertz and Ross are committed to industry interoperability and are working at the forefront of IP standards and specifications including SMPTE ST 2110, AMWA IS-04, and IS-05. As well, both companies offer a suite of IP- enabled products including Media Gateways (570IPG and 7890MG), Multiviewers (3067VIP10G), and Software-Defined Compute Platform (evEDGE) from Evertz; and Media Gateways (RAPTOR-EDGE, BACH), Graphics (XPression), and Production Switchers (Acuity) from Ross.
“The transition to IP is happening now. With over 80 large scale IP-deployments globally, we continue our support for open standards to ensure vendor interoperability within IP facilities,” comments Mo Goyal, Sr. Director, International Business Development, Evertz. “Both Evertz and Ross are active members of AIMS, the ASPEN Community, SMPTE, VSF, and AMWA and are working together with other industry partners to realize this goal.”
“Ross is committed to promoting and realizing vendor neutral network control that supports robust and deterministic routing with our One Network vision. This is our belief that the key to realizing value in the migration to full- scale IP facilities is to converge all production signals including video, audio, synchronization control and file transfer onto a single network with intelligent network management to guarantee quality of service,” states Nestor Amaya, founder of COVELOZ, a Ross Video company, and now also Director of IP Solutions and Infrastructure Product Marketing for Ross Video. “We are extremely pleased to highlight our interoperability with Evertz, offering our joint customers unprecedented freedom of choice.”
At the IBC IP Showcase (located at RAI, Room E106), both Evertz and Ross are involved in the Playout, Live Production, and IS-05 control areas interoperability demonstrations. As well, both companies will be presenting at the IP Showcase theater.
