Macnica: AVoIP Module

The full-stack module 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 development of the MPA1000 is significant in that it opens the door to new system solution opportunities and capabilities,” said Andrew Starks, director of product management at Macnica. “It’s one of the earliest 1GbE products to add 4K60 4:4:4 video using open standards.”

The MPA1000’s innovation is enhanced through simple configuration and control – a core design principle of the module. The module’s integrated web server hosts a RESTful API along with a web application that is fully customisable for each user. Macnica additionally offers an MPA1000 Development Kit for testing and development purposes, with design files available on request.

“Our commitment is to open standards, which provide decreased system deployment cost and complexity, and the MPA1000 module is based on those efforts,” continued Starks. “It’s inexpensive yet brings high-end video quality down to a 1GbE standard.”
