Macnica, Tektronix Announce Partnership

Macnica has announced a new partnership with Tektronix.

Under the agreement, Tektronix has embedded Macnica's video-over-IP technology into Prism, a media analysis platform designed to provide broadcasters with a seamless transition from SDI-based to IP-based infrastructures.

Tektronix's Prism is a hybrid SDI/IP media analysis platform, suitable for environments including master control rooms, production studios, OB vans, and signal contribution/distribution centres. The solution offers a range of IP statistics as well as video/audio quality and diagnostic information, helping engineers ensure the delivery of high quality-of-service levels.

Tektronix has licensed Macnica's ST2022 intellectual property to enable Prism to receive streaming media over Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) IP traffic. The intellectual property is compliant with current and emerging standards for video transport over IP networks.

Charlie Dunn, General Manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix, explained: "As the broadcast industry begins a phased and gradual migration to an all IP-infrastructure, there's strong demand for test and monitoring solutions that can help engineers manage hybrid facilities using both SDI and IP signals. That's the strategy behind Prism, which offers the unique ability to diagnose and correlate both signal types. Our product strategy is driven by the ultimate desire to address customer requirements. We chose to partner with the industry leader in core technologies for video delivery over IP networks to enable us to bring the right solutions to our customers at the right time. Through our agreement with Macnica, we were able to use their interoperability-tested solution to bring our product to market much faster."

"Tektronix needs no introduction as a highly respected and industry-leading innovator of video quality testing and monitoring solutions, and we are delighted to partner with them on their IP media analysis platforms," said John Burton, president, Macnica. "With Prism, Tektronix shares Macnica's philosophy to provide standards-based, interoperable solutions for easing the transition from SDI-based to IP-based infrastructures."
