Macnica will showcase its expanding VIPA product line and offer live demos of its ST 2110 and NMOS network media switching solutions at IBC2019.

In terms of specific developments, the show is paying host to the European debut of Macnica’s VIPA 25 PCI Express (PCIe) card. The VIPA 25 is an ST 2110 accelerated network interface card that completely offloads the network processing and timing workload from the CPU.

It provides a straightforward, simple API that includes NMOS IS-04/05 and GStreamer filters (source and sync) – making it ready for developers to start creating next-generation, IP-networked broadcast applications on open standards. 

Meanwhile, an optional 12G-SDI daughter-card adds SDI support with seamless API access alongside ST 2110. 

Macnica also continues to be involved in NMOS standards development, and VIPA 25 is a full-stack ST 2110/NMOS solution that supports all ratified standard subtypes. 

Andrew Starks, director of product management at Macnica, said: “We’re building a flexible, accessible ST 2110 platform that will be at the heart of a new wave of products in the broadcast and professional video industries.

”The VIPA 25 will be perfect for broadcast equipment manufacturers who need the kind of reliability they’ve come to expect from SDI in a standards-compliant ST 2110 solution.”
