Aperi IP Multiviewer


The Aperi IP Multiviewer App (“Multiviewer”) is an FPGA-based application designed to run on an Aperi microserver and is available from the Aperi App Store.

Multiviewer receives IP video input from three sources: on the leftmost “SFP 1” 10 GbE front panel port, and on the two 10 GbE back plane Ethernet ports. The two 10 GbE backplane Ethernet ports support up to six SMPTE 2022-6 (uncompressed) feeds per port (12 total). The front input supports up to six SMPTE 2022-6 (uncompressed) feeds via the Aperi Uncompressed over IP App.

Multiviewer output is split into a 16 tile HD-SDI for display, forming a 4×4 mosaic which is outputted via HD-SDI on the rightmost front panel “SFP 4” port. Each tile can be labeled to show its multicast address, as well as incorporating dynamically definable and static text.

Each input includes an analyzer, which detects for frozen picture, blank screen, or audio loss from any particular source. If an error is detected, the UI will indicate an issue with that particular tile via the alarm system. This alarm system is available via a common interface, and is exposed in the Multiviewer API.
