IPMX finalises key standards documents

Concluding a VSF testing event held at the Matrox Video facility in Munich, where multiple manufacturers with IPMX implementations validated core specifications, IPMX has now achieved a crucial phase of maturity. This event marks the transition of many of the essential IPMX documents — encompassing critical aspects of audio and video transport, HDCP, control plane requirements, and system timing — from draft to finalised specifications.

AIMS Announces Plans for ISE 2024

The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) announced that it will be highlighting the global broadcast and Pro AV market’s increasing adoption of Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX) — a set of open standards-based protocols designed to ensure interoperability for AV-over-IP systems.
At the show, visitors to booth 5E550 will see IPMX-based hardware and software working together seamlessly in live demonstrations, while presentations held in the AIMS-IPMX Theater will focus specifically on the standard’s development and adoption.

CFP National Championship 2024: Game Creek Sets Up IP-based Compound as New Varsity Truck Caps First Season

For the first time in broadcasting college-football championship games, ESPN has made a big operational leap by establishing a fully IP-based production compound. All the production trucks parked outside NRG Stadium in Houston for tonight’s CFP National Championship between Michigan and Washington are fully connected via SMPTE ST 2110.

IBC 2023: IP Showcase Takes to the Water

This year at IBC, the IP Showcase will take place on canal cruise boats from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17. The event comprises six one-hour cruises. Each will accommodate up to 35 attendees and feature two 20-minute sessions from top experts, for a total of 12 presentations on a wide range of IP-related topics.

The Future of AV-over-IP is Open with IPMX

IPMX is a suite of open standards for AV-over-IP. IPMX has been built on core standards and specifications that have already been battle-hardened through their use in uncompressed broadcast environments — the critical toolsets are in place. By harnessing SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS, IPMX creates a standardized approach for sending high-quality audio, video and control signals over IP networks.

Viewpoint: Pioneering the Future of AVoIP

The primary goal of AIMS and its members is to ensure that IPMX attains the same level of adoption and widespread implementation in the Pro AV industry as SMPTE ST 2110 has in broadcasting. Currently, IPMX is following a trajectory similar to that of SMPTE ST 2110, and is expected to reach a comparable level of market acceptance in the near future.

IPMX demystified with short answers to tough questions

NDI and Dante AV provide their own strengths and benefits, but they are vastly different from IPMX. IPMX provides an ecosystem that is not proprietary and engineered with the flexibility to operate in 1GB up to 100GB networks. No matter the scale of the system, IPMX delivers the highest quality video and audio with low latency.

VSF publishes initial IPMX technical recommendations

It enables manufacturers and developers to create low-latency, interoperable, IP-based AV products and applications. The VSF TR-10 suite outlines the differences between SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX, with documents covering everything from system time and definitions, to using AMWA Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS) APIs, to the transparent transport of AES3 audio using the RTP protocol.

AIMS To Host Live Interoperability Demonstration Of IPMX™

IPMX implements a standards-based approach based on SMPTE ST 2110 with features and capabilities that target the specific needs of the Pro AV industry. In addition to simplifying implementation of SMPTE ST 2110 and ensuring interoperability for AV-over-IP systems, IPMX incorporates other features tailored to Pro AV installations.

NAB 2023: IP Showcase Presentation Videos From 2023 NAB Show Now Available Online

Given by top experts, the 30-minute presentations cover a wide range of IP-related topics — from the latest developments in SMPTE ST 2110 to NMOS, ground-to-cloud architectures, IPMX, QC monitoring and maintenance, cloud-based production, and much more.

The role of standards in the hybrid era

It’s clear that standards are crucial when building any system based on interoperable functions between different manufacturers’ equipment, and two industry standards have been developed to advance the adoption of IP deployment: SMPTE 2110 – the set of SMPTE standards for the transport of digital media over an IP network – and the NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications) suite of specifications, which also ensures easy device connection management on a network, something fraught with multiple perils that were never envisaged by the builders of SDI networks in the past.

SMPTE ST 2110: A Vibrant Six-Year-Old

One major way that ST 2110 technology is being expanded to support new applications is in the development of IPMX (Internet Protocol Media eXperience). The goal of this development is to help reduce the cost of ST 2110 technology for applications that may not require its full range of capabilities. Another goal is to produce the first truly open, license-free IP video specification for the ProAV market (in contrast with NDI, SDVoE and HDBaseT).
