Grass Valley and Sony Collaborate to Advance the Cause of Common IP Standards for Broadcast

Grass Valley, a Belden Brand announced collaboration with Sony to develop industry-wide IP interoperability based on the two companies’ IP-based solutions and devices. As a result of the agreement, Sony will become a full member of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). In order to foster better interoperability across the industry and ensure a pathway for customers to a standards-based approach, Grass Valley plans to implement an IP-to-IP gateway card compatible with its innovative GV Node Real Time IP Processing and Edge Routing platform. This card will ensure compatibility between Sony’s Networked Media Interface (NMI) and Low Latency Video Codec (LLVC) technologies and systems based on standards supported by the AIMS roadmap.

Grass Valley Introduces GV Node

Grass Valley debuts at IBC 2015 the world's first true, realtime IP processing platform, GV Node. Offering multipurpose video and audio processing, vertically accurate switching and IP aggregation, GV Node is a critical next step in the growth of Grass Valley's GlasstoGlass IP solution for broadcasters, enabling them to apply the unprecedented flexibility of IP in more applications throughout their workflows. GV Node allows broadcasters to combine many of the advantages of a data center model with the specific requirements of a live broadcast production environment. This unique IP processing node is designed to serve as a primary source of switching in live production. In early applications, customers may choose to operate GV Node alongside commercial offtheshelf IP switches to offer paths with deterministic switching that are ideal for backup in directtoair and secondary live feed applications. Historically, COTS IP switches have been unable to perform vertically accurate switching like traditional SDI routers. This is especially important in live applications where signals go directly to air, and where routers have traditionally been used as a backup to the production switcher. Switching that happens accurately within the vertical interval is also needed when a router is used for connecting secondary live feeds. The GV Node distributed platform topology is designed to uplink to aggregation COTS IP switches, using a spineleaf architecture that's typical of modern IT infrastructures. This topology represents a much more scalable and flexible approach than traditional, centralized routing systems, which have encouraged the purchase of larger, more expensive chassis than necessary in order to allow future expansion. This type of distributed topology enables the realization of a true broadcastcentric data center model. GV Node delivers multiple signal processing and monitoring functions and provides IP and SDI I/O as well as MADI I/O, audio deembedding/embedding and monitoring. The builtin, highly scalable multiviewer uses industryproven Kaleido technology for the high picture quality and layout flexibility. GV Node is designed to be FutureReady with respect to currently changing industry signal formats and standards, currently supporting both SMPTE 20226 (HD) videooverIP and 4K 1wire using TICO compression.
