CCW: Nevion Highlights VideoIPath
Nevion will showcase its new VideoIPath solution for IP networks for the first time in North America at HD World/CCW (Oct. 12-13 in New York) at booth #801. VideoIPath’s managed video services for broadcasters’ and service providers’ IP and optical networks are designed to facilitate remote production.
VideoIPath for IP contribution networks provides IP video transport with end-to-end control, monitoring, and management. It features managed video services for complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics, and network inventory. According to Nevion, it reduces the cost structure by bringing video services into the IP environment, where scalability is increasing and port costs are decreasing.
VideoIPath for IP now includes the VS902, a 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.
