Nevion VideoIPath

Media asset management (MAM)

Nevion VideoIPath is a convergent orchestration and SDN (software defined networking) control software system for media a data networks. It offers connection management, workflow planning, maintenance planning, monitoring and analysis, both in IP and mixed IP/baseband environments.


Developed by experts in IT, broadcast and telecom networks, Nevion VideoIPath is being used daily for a variety of applications by broadcasters, service providers and other organizations across the world, including BT, BBC, CBC Canada, France Télévisions, Optus, Singtel, TV 2 Norway, and many more.

Managing broadcast contribution

With Nevion VideoIPath, the production team can set-up contribution links between locations on their own, both in a planned and ad-doc manner.  Users just select the source and destination(s), pick the profile needed (e.g. what type of compression and protection to use), set the date and time(s), and let Nevion VideoIPath manage all the underlying complexity.

Planning broadcast workflows

Nevion VideoIPath allows production planners to design workflows, well ahead of events or shows. All the connectivity, media-flows, processing and salvos can be planned and tested graphically, without needing to worry about the physical aspects of the network. When the production needs to take place, the pre-configured workflow can be set-up at the touch of a button.

Controlling broadcast workflows

In a live-production environment, the team in the gallery can continue to use familiar control panels, thanks to Nevion VideoIPath’s support for industry-standard interfaces. Nevion VideoIPath also offers a touch-screen panel that can run on computers and tablets. So the production team can work as they always have done, even as the underlying media network evolves.

Architecting the network

Nevion VideoIPath is the solution to network architects’ network management and control headache. Nevion VideoIPath supports both centralized and distributed architectures; automatic routing, SDN, and hybrids; media and data; and IP LANs and WANs. Nevion VideoIPath also manages bandwidth, ports and other capacity issues.

Running the network

Nevion VideoIPath provides advanced monitoring and fault-recovery capabilities, enabling support operations to a ensure service continuity. These capabilities include graphical alarm management, root cause detection, historical logs, and network to service correlation, as well as manual and automatic re-routing.

Maintaining the network

Nevion VideoIPath makes it easy for operations to set-up and manage the installed base, for example by enabling planned maintenance of equipment, and the roll-out of software and firmware upgrades. VideoIPath enables operations to identify services affected, and re-route them proactively.
