Macnica to Launch SMPTE ST 2110-Based MPA1000 1G AV-Over-IP Module at InfoComm 2019

Macnica Technology will debut its MPA1000 AV-over-IP Module at Booth 474 during InfoComm 2019. The MPA1000 is a full-stack module that brings low-latency IP video transport to OEM manufacturers and an array of professional AV products.

Macnica is a creator of hardware and software APIs that implement SMPTE ST 2110, a widely followed open standard for professional broadcast and AV that fosters interoperability, scalability and flexibility in IP applications. For Macnica, the release of the MPA1000 module represents continued product development moving solidly to open standards.

Macnica’s MPA1000 transports compressed UHD 60P 4:4:4 video, audio and control over a standard 1GbE connection. The module is field-configurable to transmit or receive signals; once connected to the network, the media traffic is discoverable through the included NMOS IS-04/05 services — an open standard for publishing and discovery of content streams.

The MPA1000’s integrated web server hosts a RESTful API along with a web application that is fully customizable for each user. Macnica additionally offers an MPA1000 Development Kit for testing and development purposes, with design files available on request.

Starting with SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS-04/05, the standard for high-performance AV-over-IP in broadcast, Macnica has created an extended profile that includes support for TICO-XS compression and other Pro AV capabilities. The company will continue its work with standards organizations and other manufacturers, ensuring that the MPA1000 becomes a part of a future multi-vendor, interoperable AV-over-IP ecosystem.
