Macnica To Exhibit At ISE 2024

News Image
Macnica is to attend the ISE 2024 show next week with strong momentum behind its IPMX product development business.

In addition to the launch of the MEG1, Macnica's first IPMX ethernet gateway, ASTRODESIGN will offer a preview of its forthcoming IPMX AV over IP Gateway powered by Macnica’s full-stack ME10 SoC solution. ASTRODESIGN will demonstrate its innovation, the IA-1568 IP Gateway, at Stand CS650 in the Fira Barcelona Gran Via’s Discovery Zone, which highlights first-time ISE exhibitors. ASTRODESIGN anticipates that the device will begin shipping in June.

ASTRODESIGN specialises in real-time digital signal processing technology for several industries, and manufactures a wide range of video, audio and measurement products and solutions for use in broadcast and AV environments, including live event venues. The company offers a broad range of product lines, including IP Gateways to support 8K video transmission and JPEG XS compression in SMPTE ST 2110 systems. These products were chiefly engineered for use in the Japanese market.

ASTRODESIGN last year became an AIMS Alliance member to join forces with companies like Macnica to advance IPMX product development. That included developing a new IP Gateway for IPMX systems that would also help ASTRODESIGN expand into new business regions, including North America and Europe. Having worked together before, ASTRODESIGN quickly chose Macnica as its development partner for the IA-1568. Macnica’s ME10 SoC gave ASTRODESIGN a complete 1G AV over IP solution for low-latency transport of 4K60 4:4:4 video, along with a compact, low-profile design that perfectly fits within the IA-1568’s 1RU hardware design.

"Macnica's ME10 solution provided our engineering team with the proven reference designs we needed to accelerate both product development and time to market while reducing our in-house engineering costs," said Sean Yoshioka, Sales General Manager, International Business Division, ASTRODESIGN. "The ME10 also provides with a futureproof solution that allows us to add new features and functions to IA-1568 even after the product comes to market."

The Macnica ME10 SoC transports HDMI 2.0 4K 4:4:4 video, audio and control data over 1Gb networks in a compact 23x23mm form factor. Ideal for use in larger production runs or within compact product designs, the ME10 supports key functions for IPMX interoperability (device discovery and registration, network resiliency, subframe latency and more) and provides a customizable API and web interface to all IPMX product developers.

Yoshioka anticipates pairing the IA-1568 IP Gateway with ASTRODESIGN’s 8K camera to move 4K video to monitors and display systems inside production studios and stadiums, though this represents just one of many potential use cases. He adds that the ME10’s compatibility with HDMI and its related features, including HDCP for digital content protection and EDID for display identification will be useful in bridging legacy systems and connections with IP networks.

ISE 2024 takes place January 30-February 2 at Fira Barcelona Gran Via. Macnica exhibits at Stand 5G800.
