Introducing NVRT Vendor Agnostic Enterprise Software Suite by Providius

The Providius Network Visualization & Realtime Telemetry Dashboard (NVRT) is a vendor agnostic enterprise software suite that provides full network and media visibility across an all-IP, or hybrid IP-SDI, LAN/WAN broadcast infrastructure.

NVRT combines network telemetry and deep media packet inspection on a single display, allowing users to:

  • Discover what’s connected/disconnected from the network in realtime
  • Trace a media / PTP flow across the network
  • Confirm media flows are accurately routed on the switch
  • Track bandwidth utilization and flow metrics
  • Represent network routes as an XY matrix
  • Confirm PTP is locked where expected
  • Differentiate between a stream issue and a networking issue

Providius_NVRT_PTP_TEVIOS

Based on Linux, this software-defined networking solution incorporates a powerful and robust database in order to document and rapidly search any aspect of the operation. The system automatically interrogates live and dormant path connections, creating the most intuitive and data-rich presentation layers of a COTS-hybrid infrastructure.

Features and Benefits

  • Lightweight software for VM / bare-metal with multi-client seat dashboards
  • Auto Discovery of network assets & auto-mapping topology in realtime
  • Frequently used with Cisco, Arista, Netgear* and Aruba* networks

Media Links to Launch 4K JPEG-XS MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway

Media Links launches its 4K JPEG-XS version of the MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway at IBC 2022!

The MDP3020 is SMPTE standards-based and enhanced with support for two 4K-UHD/12G SDI video channels. It meets the need for cost effective, remotely configurable and protected 4K video over IP services at the network edge. By applying JPEG-XS compression and encapsulating the content into packets for transport over an IP network, the MDP3020 MAX processes incoming 4K, 12G SDI video/audio streams.

MDP3020 utilizes JPEG-XS with inherent high image compression and ultra-low latency processing. Use the MDP3020  in live, remote production applications, specifically where network edge bandwidths are constrained and immediate interaction between studio and venues is crucial.

MediaLinks_MDP3020_JPEG

Additional features include:

  • 10GbE/1GbE data port
  • Dual 10GbE optical interfaces
  • Seamless Protection Switching (aka Hitless Media Processing or SMPTE ST2022-7)
  • Redundant power capability
  • Integrated frame synchronizer
  • 1/2 rack unit
  • Low power consumption

The Seamless Protection/Hitless switching function operates on all media (video, audio and data), preventing signal disruption should there be problems in any one of the two diverse IP network paths.
