SMPTE ST 2110 Media over IP

The ST 2110 IP core set provides broadcast and professional AV equipment the ability to send and/or receive professional media over IP networks. The core supports the following sub standards:

  • ST 2110-10: System timing
  • ST 2110-20: Uncompressed active video
  • ST 2110-21: Traffic shaping
  • ST 2110-22: Compressed video
  • ST 2110-30: PCM digital audio
  • ST 2110-31: AES3 transparent transport
  • ST 2110-40: Ancillary data

The modularity and configurability allow an efficient implementation, using only the necessary RTL logic to minimize resources. Supports gateway and synthetic essence operation.

SMPTE ST 2059 Time Synchronization

The ST 2059 IP core provides broadcast and professional AV equipment the ability to support the generation of deterministic timing signals for video and audio systems.

The core supports timing and synchronization per the standards:

  • ST 2059-1: Alignment of Signals to Epoch
  • ST 2059-2: Profile for IEEE 1588 PTP

Configurable to output multiple programmable reference clock and sync signals, supports the generation of HH:MM:SS:FF Time Code including drop frame, and is network speed independent.

Included Reference Design

RTP Fail-Safe (ST 2022-7)

This IP core provides broadcast and professional AV equipment seamless protection switching (hitless failover) using 2 Ethernet ports. One RTP stream is reconstructed out of 2 input RTP streams. Able to cope with Ethernet jitter, latency differences between streams and reordered packets. The RTL core is fully configurable as needed.

IP Framer

This IP core provides the formatting of RTP packets into UDP/IP packets. It assembles and adds UDP, IP and MAC headers, calculates and inserts checksums, and provides VLAN tag headers and specific MAC header commands. Features high performance IPv4 and IPv6 support for small and large packets.

IP Filter

This IP core filters incoming packets from an Ethernet MAC and distributes them to the appropriate channel. Programmable by SW control, it removes faulty packets and strips IP, VLAN and/or UDP headers from media channels.

NMOS Control Software

Compatible with any IP core, any OS, on any platform, the NMOS Software Core Linux Daemon enables SMPTE ST 2110 based products to interoperate on a multi-vendor IP network.

Developed by the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) and specified by the Joint Taskforce on Networked Media (JT-NM). NMOS Enables devices to be truly ST 2110 compliant.

  • IS-04: Discovery and Registration of ST 2110 devices on the network
  • IS-05: Connection Management for switching in a standard way by any broadcast controller
  • IS-07: Event & Tally provides the IP equivalent of GPIO events
  • IS-08: Audio Channel mapping from multiple sources into a single destination
  • IS-09: Enables automatic discovery of system parameters
  • IS-11: Reports supported AV formats to controller to ensure compatibility
  • IS-13: Annotation and Labelling to facilitate easy identification of nodes and devices
  • BCP-003-01: Encrypts NMOS communications using HTTPS and TLS ensuring only authenticated users have access
