Nevion to present managed IP video services at VidTrans12

Director of product management Dr. Chin Chye Koh to present new techniques for real-time service protection and control

New Orleans, LA, February 13, 2012 Nevion , a leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, will showcase its latest VideoIPath managed video services solution for IP networks at VidTrans12, the Video Services Forum’s annual technical conference and exposition taking place on February 28 – March 1 at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel in New Orleans, LA. Nevion’s director of product management, Dr. Chin Chye Koh, will present at the conference on new techniques for real-time service protection and control in IP media networks on Thursday March 1.

Dr. Koh’s presentation will include a technical overview of a new single-path IP protection technique, and examine the different control principles involved in dynamically controlling video flows though IP networks from simple Layer 2 Ethernet to complex Layer 3 IP and MPLS solutions.

VideoIPath for IP contribution networks is an integrated hardware and software platform that provides IP video transport with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management. It features comprehensive managed video services for complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics and network inventory. It greatly reduces the cost structure by bringing video services into the IP environment, where scalability is dramatically increasing and port costs are decreasing.

VideoIPath for IP now includes the VS902, a powerful new universal IP video transport platform that accepts any SDI or ASI input and provides both uncompressed encapsulation to IP and a choice of JPEG 2000 or H.264 compression. It offers transport protected by Streaming Intelligent Packet Switching (SIPS), a technology developed by Nevion as a more advanced transport protection method that provides perfect protection switching in addition to packet loss protection. VideoIPath also supports forward error correction (FEC), and provides automatic calculation of the FEC settings needed to meet a desired level of service.

VideoIPath is administered from a Web-based console for comprehensive managed video services. It simplifies the complexity of video-over-IP services by adding a network abstraction layer, allowing users to provision and monitor services without having to consider detailed configuration settings in each network element. By auto-detecting available video resources, VideoIPath can present appropriate video end-points and service profiles to users, enabling them to schedule and initiate connections in an intuitive option-selection process. VideoIPath manages bandwidth by allocating the necessary resources without overbooking. 

VideoIPath is also available for optical networks, providing a completely managed video services system for broadcasters’ fiber-based networks. The fully integrated system combines advanced transport hardware for contribution-quality video transport with comprehensive end-to-end control, monitoring and management.
