Successful IP Showcase for MNA

Terry Holton, Vice Chairman of the Media Networking Alliance (MNA) – the non-profit trade association, established to promote the adoption of the AES67 standard – has described the participation of more than 10 MNA member companies in the IP Showcase event, held throughout the recently concluded NAB Show in Las Vegas, as “the most impressive and effective event the MNA has participated in”.

“I would like to thank and congratulate all of the MNA members who participated in the very successful IP Showcase event,” said Holton. “I believe that all members who were involved in the IP Showcase would agree that this was the most impressive and effective event the MNA has participated in, since its inception nearly three years ago.”

The event was organized in collaboration with the Audio Engineering Society (AES), the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), IABM (the international trade association for suppliers of broadcast and media technology), PILOT, the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Video Services Forum (VSF).

Participating MNA member companies’ products were incorporated in the equipment racks that formed an extensive broadcast IP interoperability demonstration these included ARG, Calrec, Digigram, Focusrite, Lawo, Merging Technologies, Riedel Communications, Telos Alliance, Ward Beck Systems and Yamaha. The demonstration highlighted interoperability of four parts of the new SMPTE ST 2110 standard, pertaining to video, audio, control and metadata.

SMPTE ST 2110 is currently at an advanced draft stage and is widely projected as a fundamental development in a transition to full IP workflows in broadcast, based on common open standards. Personnel from several member companies, including Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX, Antony David of SSL, and Nestor Amaya of Coveloz, gave technical presentations in the IP Showcase Theater.
