Nevion launches latest version of VideoIPath software

Nevion, the award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, today announced the launch of version 6 of its media network management and service orchestration software, VideoIPath. This latest version will be showcased at IBC in Amsterdam, 15-19 September 2017, on booth B.71 in Hall 1.

Nevions VideoIPath provides comprehensive vendor-agnostic connection management, service assurance and network inventory capabilities for broadcasters and service providers.
VideoIPath 6 includes a host of new features designed to enhance the systems seamless management and orchestration across IP LANs (local area networks) used in facilities and IP WANs (wide area networks) used in contribution, remote production and distribution. These features are focused on making production set-ups easier to manage and control, while providing enhanced service assurance and offering even greater support for third-party equipment.
Management and orchestration systems have the potential to lock broadcasters into specific technologies and vendors, and can make it very difficult to realize the full potential of the IP LAN/WAN convergence, explains Johnny Dolvik, Chief Product and Development Officer at Nevion. VideoIPath has been designed specifically to avoid these pitfalls, offering the industrys first multi-vendor control solution with support for both media functions and SDN [software defined networking]. This latest release adds substantially to these capabilities, helping to unlock the full benefits of the move to IP.
VideoIPaths new Flow app allows users to plan production setups within and between facilities, reserving the required resources and the logical connectivity between them. The production set-up can activated at the touch of a button, or scheduled to be activated automatically at a particular date and time. VideoIPaths new Panel app offers a fully integrated and configurable graphic control panel designed specifically for touch screens, that can be used to manage connections across LANs and WANs. This allows broadcasters to orchestrate entire production setups in a manner familiar from the baseband world, which saves time and facilitates sharing of resources between different productions.
In VideoIPath 6, the service assurance capabilities are enhanced through the ability to customize monitoring to meet specific business needs, helping to define when service alarms should be shown and with what severity, for example. In addition, VideoIPaths updated redundancy controller is now able to trigger re-routing of services when needed, for example in the case of equipment or network failure.
Support for third-party network equipment has been extended to include multiple interfaces, including NETCONF, Openflow and other proprietary APIs. Equipment support recently added through these include Cisco Nexus, Mellanox and Arista switches. The new software release also now supports the Ember+ protocol, which enables third-party control systems, such as Lawo VSM, to manage connections through VideoIPath.
Many of the new VideoIPath 6 features have already been deployed by Nevion customers, including BT and TV 2 Norway.
