MONTREAL, Quebec — April 9, 2019 — Matrox® Video today announces that its Matrox X.mio5 Q25, Matrox X.mio3 IP, and Matrox DSX LE5 Q25 SMPTE ST 2110 network interface controller (NIC) cards have successfully passed the Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) testing program for the SMPTE ST 2110 standard.

The new JT-NM testing initiative is designed to provide full transparency and insight regarding key technology and vendor reference points to broadcasters evaluating and/or transitioning to IP-based infrastructures. As part of the inaugural testing program, each of the three Matrox NIC cards completed the ST 2110-20 video, ST 2110-30 audio, and ST 2110-40 ancillary tests; the Matrox X.mio3 IP card was also used as a reference device for the ST 2022-7 redundancy test.

Come see the Matrox X.mio5 Q25 NIC card in action in the NAB IP Showcase (booth #C12634) as part of a predictable, plug-and-play environment between various ST 2110 nodes, as designated by the newly defined JT-NM TR-1001-1 recommendation.

“Matrox is incredibly proud to be an ardent contributor and supporter of the SMPTE ST 2110 standard,” says Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “The involvement of independent testing bodies like JT-NM represents an even deeper commitment to providing true open-standards-based approaches that ensure seamless, multi-vendor interoperability in SMPTE ST 2110 environments.”
