GB Labs qualifies ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring, and Analytics Software to achieve even faster performance Posted: 18/05/2020
GB Labs qualifies ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring, and Analytics Software to achieve even faster performance

The leader in intelligent storage solutions, GB Labs, has announced a development partnership with ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions, and has qualified ATTO 360™ Tuning, Monitoring, and Analytics Software with GB Labs CORE.4 operating system.

A network built with ATTO FastFrame™ Ethernet adapters and ThunderLink® Thunderbolt™ adapters can be optimised to perform far better than what’s commonly expected of Ethernet networks. ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring, and Analytics Software helps users easily and quickly tune networks to achieve maximum performance.

GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland said, “Any storage system can only be as good as the quality of the connection it has to creative workstations or processing platforms. This is especially true of our high-end Space and FastNAS platforms, which are so powerful and intuitive that they can actually be let down by a substandard link to the workstations they are there to drive.”

V-Nova Collaborates with Amazon Web Services for On-Demand Low-cost High-quality Contribution over Commercial Internet Posted: 21/04/2020
V-Nova Collaborates with Amazon Web Services for On-Demand Low-cost High-quality Contribution over Commercial Internet

Video compression experts V-Nova have collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer a contribution solution based on SMPTE VC-6 that provides an important new option for broadcasters and producers worldwide, helping to drive up quality whilst avoiding the need for costly leased connections.

The volume of premium live sport and event contribution has been growing steadily in recent years and has been primarily reliant upon dedicated dark fibre backbones. However, the bandwidth requirements of low-latency contribution encoders have meant the cost of these dedicated connections has been prohibitive for many. Lower-quality, higher-latency encoders often have to be used to mitigate against this.

The combination of V-Nova’s P.Link contribution solution based on SMPTE VC-6 compression with AWS Elemental MediaConnect and AWS Direct Connect addresses these challenges directly. P.Link offers Intra-frame low latencies and equivalent quality at up to 70% lower bitrates than JPEG 2000 solutions. Transporting these feeds with AWS enables mission-critical one-to-one or one-to-many links that are easy to set up and are available in a cost-effective on-demand basis. SMPTE VC-6 encoding also notably reduces processing power requirements providing higher-density and lower operating costs. Extensive testing conducted so far has demonstrated excellent low-latency performance for feeds including 4Kp60 transport at less than 200ms between London and Sydney.

Aperi, the pioneer of virtualized media production, today announced that its innovative and unique Live IP media virtualization platform and software product portfolio has been acquired by Net Insight AB, a global leader in media networks and resource optimization.

Since its market launch in 2016, world-leading media service providers and media companies have adopted Aperi’s low-latency, software-based media processing platform as part of their live production and transport services workflows. Its pioneering work in the field of native-IP, FPGA-accelerated Media Function Virtualization (MFV-first coined by Aperi) is now widely accepted in the media and broadcasting industry. To fully capitalize on this fast growing market acceptance, Aperi has been looking for a larger home for its product portfolio and team. As a reliable key partner and leader in the industry’s transition towards a continuously improved media experience, Net Insight is the ideal new home.

“The Aperi product line, with its unique low-latency V-Stack hypervisor and open App/microservices store concept, will benefit from Net Insight’s global leadership, 20 plus years' experience in media networking and strong development track record,” says Joop Janssen, CEO of Aperi. “I’m very happy that the original vision of Aperi’s founders – Eugene and Brian Keane – and the engineering team will not only move forward, but further prosper within the larger Net Insight group.”

“By adding the Aperi products to our portfolio, we complement and strengthen our offering. We share the Aperi product vision of an open and virtualized software architecture and are excited to welcome the team of skilled engineers to Net Insight and to continue supporting existing and new Aperi customers,” says Ulrik Rohne, VP Media Networks at Net Insight.

Thousands of Aperi microservers are used each day in the live production and transport of some of the most prestigious sports content, including 4K, around the globe. Aperi’s technology enables service providers, content owners, rights holders and broadcasters to work faster, more efficiently, and at scale for the lowest-cost and most agile remote production. The combination of the true virtualization that it’s able to offer, along with its unique V-Stack media hypervisor-based approach, delivers low-latency media processing for both centralized and de-centralized media networks.

Intinor joins SRT Alliance

Intinor, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high-quality video over internet, has joined the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Alliance.

SRT is an open source video transport protocol that optimizes streaming performance across unpredictable networks, enabling the best quality live video to be transported over even the most questionable networks. The SRT Open Source project, which is spearheaded by the SRT Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport by continuously improving open-source SRT.

As part of its participation in the alliance, Intinor has added support for SRT’s “Listener” delivery mode, soon to be followed by SRT’s “Caller” and “Rendezvous” mode to the entire Intinor Direkt Router range. Intinor has also used the opportunity to add support for NDI® connectivity.

Intinor CEO Roland Axelsson said, “The industry has embraced SRT, which has proven to be a truly collaborative and beneficial way of working together to establish a streaming protocol that mitigates or resolves issues that still surround video transport latency without having to resort to resourcing expensive alternatives.
