A key building block of Nevion’s virtualization strategy, Nevion Virtuoso is a software-defined media node platform, designed to perform a variety of real-time media transport, processing, and monitoring in both LANs (e.g. facilities) and WANs (e.g. contribution). Its functionality is upgradable and configurable through software, known as media function virtualization. It is standards based and ready to be deployed rapidly in a modern NMOS and ST 2110 environment, as well as a more traditional SDI setting.


Nevion Virtuoso is the culmination of over 20 years of Nevion experience in the media and broadcasting industry, and 15 years delivering IP solutions. It is being used in applications as diverse as IP in the facilities, contribution, remote production and DTT, by broadcasters and service providers across the world, including TV2 (Norway), Plazamedia (Germany), Portugal Telecom, ALTICE (Portugal), Synterra Media (Russia), as well as large media organizations in the US and Asia.

Media functions

Nevion Virtuoso is all about the software, or Media Functions.

Since it was first launched at IBC 2016, Nevion Virtuoso has undergone regular software updates, enhancing and increasing its functionality. Nevion Virtuoso’s Media Functions now number over 50, designed to handle all of the challenges associated with IP-based, live production environments in which the distinction between local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs), used in contribution, remote production and distribution) is becoming blurred.

These Media Functions include:

  • video & audio processing (embedding/de-embedding; audio routing, shuffling, delay and gain; clean switching)

  • transport adaption (SDI / ST 2110 / ST 2022-6)

  • protection (ST 2022-7, ST 2022-1/5)

  • monitoring and switching (TS and SDI)

  • encoding/decoding for SD, HD. 3G, 4K/UHD, HDR, slo-mo, HFR (High frequency rate), stereoscopic 3D and 2K/4K cinema, including JPEG 2000, JPEG XS, H.264, and TICO

  • encryption (BISS-1, BISS-2, BISS-CA)

Media servers

Uniquely amongst software-defined media nodes, the Nevion Virtuoso platform has been designed to allow for the provision of Media Servers (appliances) with different characteristics, such as size, number of Media Accelerators they can accommodate and level of modularity, in order to suit virtually any requirement.


Centrally managing Nevion Virtuosos in the field could not be simpler – thanks to Nevion VideoIPath orchestration and SDN management software. Nevion VideoIPath can be used to set-up Media Functions on the Nevion Virtuosos (in a plan and organized way), route signals to and from Media Functions on any Nevion Virtuoso in the media network, and the appliances in the network.

Virtuoso also supports NMOS IS-04 and IS-05.

Backed by expertise

Behind Virtuoso is a whole organization, with experts in all the relevant fields (broadcasting, telecoms, baseband, IP and more), ready to help plan and deliver projects, as well as provide the required training and any support needed.
