Macnica To Unveil MEG1 IPMX To HDMI AV Over IP Ethernet Gateway

Macnica's active involvement in IPMX product and standards development over the past several years is bearing fruits with the introduction of the AV industry's first gateway exclusive to the IPMX suite of standards.

At ISE 2024, Macnica will unveil its MEG1 IPMX to HDMI AV over IP ethernet gateway, a 1Gb/s solution that provides a direct ramp to IPMX product development for ProAV and broadcast equipment manufacturers. Macnica will demonstrate the MEG1 at Stand 5G800 in the Fira Barcelona, Gran Via from January 30-February 3.

The MEG1 is adapted from Macnica's proven reference design for IPMX compliant product development, supporting low-latency, synchronised transport of 4K60 4:4:4 video, audio and data, including KVM and PoE support. It is ideally suited to support lab-based research, development and testing efforts for IP product developers preparing to bring IPMX solutions to market.

The MEG1 supports all features required for IP interoperability, including device discovery, USB and serial extension, resilient network performance, JPEG-XS compression, and subframe latency. The MEG1 offers impressive bandwidth, with the ability to send or receive IPMX compliant video streams at up to 800 Mb/s over a 1Gb connection. It also features a competitive power profile for PoE devices, and includes a scripting environment that provides additional freedom for feature development and automation.

"The MEG1 is a Macnica reference design that we have built into a complete product," said Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management of Macnica. "The benefit for IPMX product developers is that our design invites experimentation and extension to allow companies to achieve their product visions, and early adopters to integrate the MEG1 into their systems."

Macnica is releasing the MEG1 at a time of strong momentum for the IPMX suite of standards, which Starks says is nearing ratification. IPMX ratification is expected to take another major step forward just prior to ISE at the VSF Standards Testing Event, which takes place late January in Munich, Germany just prior to ISE. Starks anticipates that the event, which will focus on final interoperability tests, will validate IPMX performance once and for all.
