Nevion and TAG Video Systems partner to simplify IP-based broadcast production solutions
Nevion, part of Sony Group, and TAG Video Systems has reached a partnership agreement. The objective of this deal is to simplify the deployment of IP-based broadcast production solutions. With the partnership both companies will integrate companies’ flagship products, as well as the development of associated delivery and support services.
Nevion’s media orchestration platform, VideoIPath, is already integrated with TAG’s software-based IP multi-viewer offering, which is part of the company’s Realtime Media Performance Platform. The integration enables the optimized routing of video signals across IP networks into the multi-viewer. VideoIPath will continue to be enhanced within the capabilities of TAG’s platform.
Nevion’s software-defined media node, Virtuoso, also integrates with TAG’s multi-viewer, using standards like SMPTE ST 2110, JPEG 2000, and JPEG XS. Nevion and TAG engineering teams are also cooperating to get Virtuoso used as a reference node in TAG’s labs.
“The transition to IP workflows has greatly accelerated in the past two years. To provide clients the greatest value, to empower their business, technology providers like TAG and Nevion need to proactively join forces and unite their expertise. This partnership will not only help our customers reduce complexity but will also help enhance both companies’ solutions with the mutual goal to better support our media companies’ business,” assures Kevin Joyce, Zer0 Friction Officer at TAG.
“Nevion, together with its parent company Sony, have been developing an ecosystem of solutions, products, services and partnerships called Networked Live to enable broadcasters to enable mission critical live production from anywhere at any scale. This ecosystem is deigned to make it easy for our customers to make the choices that are right for them. This partnership with TAG, which is built on very complementary offerings and years of working together, is therefore an important part of Networked Live,” adds Jan Helgesen, Head of Product and Solutions at Nevion.
