All Rascular’s router control products can be successfully used with SDVN systems from the major broadcast manufacturers to route IP video including SMPTE-2110.
While the AMWA/NMOS protocol suites could allow IP flows to be discovered and connected using IS-04 and IS-05, this would effectively bypass the SDVN which restricts it’s ability to safely manage signal paths and control bandwidth.
Therefore, we communicate directly with the SDVN systems to control routing – in much the same way as a conventional baseband router would operate.
|SDVN||Protocol||Routing Control||Name Transfer||Lock/Protect||Source Status||Notes|
|Grass Valley Orbit||Pro-Bel SW-P-08||Yes||Yes||Yes||No||#1|
|Nevion VideoIPath||Nevion MRP||Yes||Yes||No||Yes||#2|
|Lawo VSM||Pro-Bel SW-P-08||Yes||TBC||TBC||No|
- Orbit Name transfer is restricted to 8 or 12 characters. RouteMaster/Helm should not use the Long16 or Long32 modes.
- VideoIPath does not yet support the Lock/Protect commands, although the MRP protocol does describe these.
RouteMaster, Helm and ClockWork can all be used with these systems.
