NAB 2016: Evertz is leading on the IP transition, with showcased solutions that provide “flexibility, scalability, and agility” including its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) for a “future-proof IP-based foundation”.

The Canada-headquartered manufacturer claims over 40 global installations of its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions.

Evertz will use Las Vegas as the setting for the introduction of evEDGE, a Software Defined Compute and Routing platform designed to meet the needs of smaller facilities looking for a “cost effective” way to migrate to IP.

Evertz said it would also allow larger facilities to build using a distributed environment.

The evEDGE patform supports bulk processing modules that unify IP and modular functions that including media gateways for formats such as Aspen, SMPTE-2022-6, NewTek NDI, RFC 4175, and AES67; multi-viewing; and video/audio conversion and processing.

It will also introduce inSITE, a new data analytics tool developed for SDVN verification.

At NAB, Evertz and Amazon Web Services (AWS) will show a completely virtualised Media Asset Management (MAM), automation and playout in the public cloud.

Evertz will also demonstrate both its Mediator-X and OvertureRT LIVE VM as virtualised services to provide cheaper and secure playout facilities in the cloud.
