Macnica Will Showcase IPMX at IBC 2022

Macnica says it has played a leadership role in developing and aiding in the definition of emerging open standards that shape video-over-IP migration for more than a decade. Macnica says it now opens a new chapter in that history as a leading proponent of the emerging IPMX set of standards first introduced with the professional AV market in mind.

Introduced by the AIMS Alliance in early 2020, IPMX implements a “standards-based approach for AV-over-IP based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard.” Macnica has now added a new twist to the open standards movement by demonstrating “how the emerging IPMX set of standards can simplify and accelerate the IP transition in broadcast and live production” at IBC 2022 — including a full range of video-over-IP transport solutions for networks from 1Gb to 100Gb using Macnica’s full suite of SoC, SoM and pure software solutions. The demos will highlight Macnica’s “unique ability to address open standards transport across IP networks of varied bandwidth.”

Macnica says its clearest example of this trend will be the demonstration of its IPMX pure software implementation. The demo will multicast UHD 4K60 video with JPEG-XS compression video from one laptop to an IPMX software decoder (based on Macnica’s IPMX Development Kit) on a second laptop over a 1Gb network, with Macnica’s ME10 SoC web interface with customizable APIs enabled for developers.
