Nevion Extends Signal Processing Capabilities Of Its Virtuoso

News Image
Nevion, a Sony Group Company, has announced that the signal processing capabilities of its software-defined media node Virtuoso have been extended with a new audio interface and additional up/down/cross conversion (UDC) functionality.

These capabilities increase the versatility of Virtuoso for live production applications, such as outside broadcast or centralised processing (“glue”) infrastructure for studio, production control room or master control room operations.

A key component of Sony’s Networked Live offering, Nevion Virtuoso has been widely deployed across the globe to transport, process, and monitor signals in real-time. The video and audio processing capabilities of Virtuoso in particular are being used daily by many broadcasters in their facilities to support their national and regional radio and TV productions.

Virtuoso already offers comprehensive audio capabilities, including bidirectional AES3, MADI and SMPTE ST 2110 / AES67 IP audio interfacing. Processing features include monitoring, routing, embedding, mixing, shuffling and per-channel control of polarity, gain, and delay. With the new RPRO interface aimed at remote production applications, Virtuoso can now also interface and transport mixed digital and analogue audio signals, along with GPIO and sync distribution.

For video processing, Virtuoso’s UDC capability offers a variety of high-quality format conversions for HD and UHD with native SMPTE ST 2110-20 uncompressed video input/output. The existing functionality includes de-interlacing, scaling, HDR/SDR conversion, legalisation, frame synchronisation and delay. The new additions to Virtuoso’s UDC capabilities include frame rate conversion and configurable 3D LUTs for colour space conversion (with a subset of BBCs 3D LUTs pre-loaded).

The latest Virtuoso media function release also includes a further enhancement to the JPEG-XS in TS (TR-07) capability announced at NAB 2023, adding the ability to handle IP-in/IP-out workflows.

Steve Hard, VP of Product Management, Virtuoso at Nevion said: "Nevion Virtuoso is obviously well-known for its media transport functionality, but it also offers exceptional media processing capabilities. This makes Virtuoso an extremely versatile media node – something that our customers recognize and appreciate. These latest extensions to the media processing capabilities of Virtuoso, cement its position as one of the highest performers for in-facilities and outside broadcast applications."

Nevion's Virtuoso will be on show at the NABShow (Las Vegas, 14-17 April, 2024), in the Networked Live area of Sony’s booth C8201.
