Macnica Prepares AV Industry For An IPMX Future

News Image
Macnica comes to ISE 2023 with a powerful message to prepare AV hardware and software developers for an IPMX future.

Anchored by its IPMX Development Kit, a new Media Streaming SDK and two demonstrations with full-stack Macnica solutions with open APIs, Macnica's ISE stand (5E670) will show visitors how to efficiently build IPMX-compatible products, and deploy interoperable AV over IP systems across scalable network infrastructures.

The key takeaway for visitors to the Macnica stand is that the AV industry now has proven solutions to drive open-standards adoption.

"The AV industry has placed increasing demand on open standards, and the IPMX suite of standards has emerged as the solution," said Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management, Macnica. "With multiple hardware and software implementations available, IPMX offers a flexible, cost-effective path to AV over IP that provides product developers, consultants, integrators and end users with unparalleled creative control. Our mission at ISE is to jumpstart IPMX product development as IPMX ratification approaches. That means showing developers how to support many product lines with one open API, and how to deploy AV over IP systems on hardware and software platforms used on-premises and in the cloud."

Macnica's two demo stations will highlight how the company’s broad array of hardware and software components will meet any IPMX product development strategy, and enable deployment of interoperable AV over IP solutions across varied wideband networks. The demos include a hardware and software implementation specific to 1Gb networks widely used today, and a latency-free, cross-domain demo that shows the possibilities of using 1Gb,10Gb and 100Gb networks for a diverse range of applications.

The 1Gb demo will feature Macnica's ME10 SoC, a 4K AV over 1Gb component that supports complete, interoperable solutions for high-volume product developers. Macnica will show a pure IPMX software implementation of multicast UHD 4K60 video from a laptop to two destinations using the JPEG-XS codec from intoPIX. The ME10’s web interface will exhibit the full power of its API for developers making a wide range of products, thereby eliminating the need to use different APIs for each product.

The benefits of Macnica's open API are strengthened through Macnica’s specialized “whitebox gateway,” an energy-efficient networking solution with a built-in IPMX discovery mechanism to empower IPMX product development. The ME10 SoC will also be used in combination with Macnica’s flagship MPA1000 AV over IP module to demonstrate a professional quality HDMI-to-IPMX gateway using KVM connectivity.

Macnica will also unveil a powerful demo that shows combined, latency-free SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX flows from live production to presentation. The demo shows the first-ever combination of an Intel N6000 100GbE SmartNIC with the API for Macnica’s M2S SDK, a new media streaming software development kit for flexible IP transport applications. The result is a "multi-gig production workflow demo" that shows the full range of Macnica’s SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX technologies working seamlessly together.
