US Broadcasters To Witness The Full Power Of Axon's Neuron

News Image
Axon Digital Design is to showcase the world's first Network Attached Processor (NAP) at this year's NAB show.

Neuron, a next generation signal processing platform, addresses the needs of complex IP and hybrid environments and supports 200 Gb/s and 64 channels or 16 UHD channels in a single rack unit.

The broadcast infrastructure specialist will be demonstrating the landmark solution at Booth N2824 during the Las Vegas show, 06-11 April.

Whether deployed as extremely efficient 'modular glue' in a pure native IP infrastructure or to seamlessly bridge legacy SDI technology into an IP environment, Neuron's impressive FGPA-based processing power provides guaranteed bandwidth performance to deliver complex Ultra HD and 8K productions.

"Moving to IP is a challenge for broadcasters, particularly when it comes to integrating and controlling increasingly complex technology layers," said Axon's CTO Peter Schut. "We are confident that our Neuron Network Attached Processor will ease and accelerate this transition by providing guaranteed bandwidth performance, regardless of the format broadcasters decide to implement."

Axon will also use NAB to highlight the phenomenal success of its Cerebrum control and monitoring platform, which simplifies complex workflows by seamlessly integrating and controlling a variety of technologies. Widely regarded as the de facto control system for news and OB production, Cerebrum has played a key role in an extraordinary range of major live and sporting events including the 2018 FIFA World Cup, The Open Golf championships, the Asian Games and NEP's landmark fully-IP production of Wimbledon where it seamlessly integrated and managed the latest technologies from GVG, Arista, EVS, Phabrix, Calrec and Evertz in a unified IP workflow.

US broadcasters and content organisations already benefiting from this versatile software platform include Trinity Broadcasting Network, which is using Cerebrum to control 35 TV stations from its National Operations Centre. A similar Cerebrum-Utah router combination has proved popular with the prestigious US Department of State who has also installed Axon SynView mutiviewer systems. Meanwhile Jewelry TV, one of the largest jewelry retailers in the US broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week from its base in Knoxville, Tennessee, has installed Synview multiviewers to monitor its broadcast operations, which reach over 84 million US households.
