EVS Delivers The First Live Production Servers To Pass JT-NM SMPTE ST 2110 Testing

Fri 24, 05 2019

Latest version of EVS’ Multicam software engine proven to provide native support for IP

Liège, Belgium, May 23, 2019

EVS, the leading provider of live production solutions, today announced that its latest XT production servers have successfully passed the Joint Task Force on Networked Media’s JT-NM SMPTE ST 2110 testing. They are among the first products – and are the first live production servers – to be produced and shipped with full IP interoperability, consistent with the AIMS Alliance roadmap and industry-agreed open standards.

Its new Multicam 16.2 software engine, which the XT servers run on, will be publicly released in June 2019 and supports more of the JT-NM full stack of technologies, as well as NMOS IS-04 and NMOS IS-05 updates. All EVS servers with the upgraded engine, including the XT and XS-VIA as well as previous generation XT4K and XS4K servers, nom natively support IP and meet the compliance standards to allow for a smooth transition to IP workflows and lay the foundation for future productions.

The SMPTE ST 2110 professional media over managed IP networks standards suite specifies the carriage, synchronization and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional IP networks in real-time for live production, playout and other professional media applications. The standards are instrumental in moving professional media industries toward one common IP-based mechanism.

“This SMPTE test program that the Joint Task Force on Networked Media oversees is critical to ensuring that end users can trust that the products they procure truly deliver on their claims”, said EVS CTO Axel Blanckaert. “It’s also an important part of distinguishing our servers as complete native IP solutions as opposed to merely gateway products or terminal gear. EVS is committed to creating production tools that fully support open standards that help to bring the far-reaching benefits of IP-based media production.”

The Joint Task Force on Networked Media is a self-coordinating group led by the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and Video Services Forum (VSF). These industry bodies work together on the development of IP technologies for professional media.
