Macnica To Celebrate Two-Year Anniversary Of IPMX At ISE 2022

News Image
Macnica will celebrate the two-year anniversary of IPMX at ISE 2022 with demonstrations that emphasize the standard's flexibility across hardware and software implementations.

Macnica has worked closely with the AIMS Alliance and other standards organizations to drive IPMX product development since AIMS introduced the standard at ISE 2020. With several IPMX technologies close to ratification, Macnica has prepared an IPMX Development Kit that helps hardware vendors quickly test, evaluate and develop IPMX-ready AV over IP products.

Macnica will also expand an IPMX software demonstration unveiled at InfoComm in October. The demonstration will show UHD video streaming from a PC to Macnica’s flagship MPA1000 full-stack AV over IP module, and showcase how IPMX technologies are seamlessly virtualized within an IT network.

"Hardware will always be essential to the ProAV industry and our IPMX Development Kit, which includes our flagship and SoC modules, will help manufacturers make open-standards AV over IP products that are IPMX-compliant. This means they will be interoperable and ready for use in a wide variety of use cases," Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management, Macnica and AIMS Alliance board member. "We also recognize that customers want to virtualize their AV systems, like they do in every other technology workflow. A successful AV over IP standard must have robust support for software implementations and that is certainly true for IPMX."

Starks adds that hardware-based IPMX implementations bring exceptional value for critical AV requirements, including low cost, power and signal latency. However, he believes that IPMX software applications will grow more popular as integrators and end users seek greater flexibility for AV applications that exist within IT workflows.

"The computer can take in any number of inputs and virtualize any number of outputs without requiring a specific server or box," said Starks. "That creates outstanding flexibility and can save the end customer a lot of money."

Separately, Macnica will demonstrate software-to-hardware implementations, with an overview of how manufacturers can leverage its IPMX Development Kit. Macnica’s IPMX Development Kit emphasizes many of the key technologies and applications required for building and managing AV over IP systems, including sub-frame latency, USB extension, and outstanding UHD quality over 1GbE networks. The kit includes Macnica’s MPA1000 and ME10 SoC modules, both of which help product developers evaluate how standards-based video works with current and future products, and offer a reliable reference to the connections and configurations required for production purposes.

The MPA1000 and ME10 SoC share the same product development and real-world operational benefits for different production volumes. Both modules transport HDMI 2.0 4K60 4:4:4 video, audio and control data over 1GbE networks, and support JPEG-XS compression, Lua scripting, and an integrated web interface with customizable APIs — all of which combine to provide exceptional freedom for product developers to uniquely customize their IPMX products.

ISE 2022 takes place February 1-4 at the Fira Barcelona, Gran Via in Spain. Macnica exhibits at 5N200.
