NAB 2017: Evertz To Showcase 25GbE IP-based Products, Virtualized Playout Solutions
At NAB 2017, Evertz (Booth N1503) will showcase the latest features in its comprehensive range of Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) IP solutions, including the introduction of its range of 25GbE products, support for SMPTE 2110 and NMOS IS-04, and new FPGA accelerated compute blades on the evEDGE platform. In addition, Evertz will be demonstrating its Mediator-X and OvertureRT LIVE VM platforms as virtualized processes to provide cost-effective and secure playout facilities in a public, private or hybrid cloud.
SDVN Portfolio To Include 25GbE IP-based Solutions
Evertz is helping to lead the transition to IP with its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) IP-based solutions. Evertz has over 80 global SDVN deployments for large scale production, playout, headend and cloud based applications. For NAB 2017, Evertz will expand its SDVN portfolio with the introduction of its range of 25GbE products, support for SMPTE 2110 and NMOS IS-04, and new FPGA accelerated compute blades on the evEDGE platform. Evertz’ innovative SDVN solutions enable an end-to-end IP based workflow from production to playout to distribution that is unmatched in the industry today.
Evertz will showcase Facility 2020, representing a next generation broadcast facility, based on the evEDGE a Software Defined Compute and Routing platform that meets the needs of smaller facilities looking for a cost effective strategy to migrate to IP, while enabling larger facilities to expand using a distributed environment. The powerful evEDGE compute blade enables a virtualized environment and provides customers “on-demand” processes to enable elastic and agile workflows.
Evertz will also be participating in the IP Showcase, an industry showcase of the latest advances in internet protocol technology (North hall, N4824), which will feature Evertz IP solutions interoperating with IP-based technology from other vendors.
Next-Gen Virtualized Playout Solutions
Evertz will also be demonstrating its Mediator-X and OvertureRT LIVE VM platforms as virtualized processes to provide cost-effective and secure playout facilities in a public, private or hybrid cloud.
As traditional broadcast infrastructures and IP based technologies converge, virtualized playout solutions are becoming a requirement in order to provide a scalable, reliable and economical alternative to conventional design architectures.
Evertz’ OvertureRT LIVE offers broadcast facilities a cost-effective and scalable playout solution with deployment options that range from video appliances to private and public cloud VMs. The platform is adaptable for current and future Master Control applications and supports SD, HD, 3G and UHD applications providing facilities with an economical path to migrate from baseband infrastructures to IP.
Mediator-X Evertz’ Media Asset Management (MAM) platform is also cloud enabled and provides media companies with a means of monetizing content while maintaining lower operating costs. Mediator-X’s advanced feature set includes support for HTML 5 for enhanced security capabilities and multiplatform support. Coupled with the Render-X transcoding and conform solution, media companies can deliver linear and non-linear content without costly physical resources.
Evertz’ virtualized solutions are architected to support high availability and resilient, scalable operation using dynamic spin-up and spin-down capabilities. In addition, IP support for compressed IO as well as SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE RDD 37 (ASPEN) and SMPTE 2110 are key capabilities of the platform.
