Main theme for Nevion at NAB 2015
The transition to IP…
Baseband
Smooth,
incremental and
cost effective
IP
… without disrupting workflows
Nevion Confidential
5
Key points about the transition
Standards
based IP
approach
Derive the benefits of IT technology, rather than locking themselves
into expensive proprietary technology
Software
Defined
Networking
(SDN)
Create the deterministic level of reliability and
performance for media networks
Coexistence
Nevion Confidential
Protect existing baseband investment by
transitioning progressively to IP

At Nevion’s booth
SEE
•
Demos from remote production,
through IP contribution, mixed
baseband/IP in the facilities and onto
distribution, with full management
and monitoring
•
Live switching between
uncompressed, JP2K and H264 to
compare compression real time delay
•
How SDN help create the right
deterministic level of reliability and
performance
•
And much more!

About the many successful projects
involving Nevion equipment
•
About how one service provider used
Nevion kit to transport over IP 4K live
sports action between continents, with
remote monitoring from another
continent

Nevion product highlight: VideoIPath
•
VideoIPath Media Service
Management solution is now
integrated with OpenFlow (SDN
technology)
− Gives users direct control of IP
transport paths for low latency,
highly reliable content delivery
− In facilities but also contribution
and distribution
Role in the transition to IP
VideoIPath hides the network complexity thereby ensuring that workflows are not
disrupted as the underlying technology changes.
