Jenny Priestley from TVBEurope recently posted an article about how the Matrox ConvertIP DSS SDI/IP converter makes it possible to integrate traditional SDI signaling and processing into a SMPTE ST 2110 environment.
Panasonic's all-IP KAIROS live video production platform has been tested to work with Matrox ConvertIP DSS SDI/IP converter from Matrox Video.
In its test facility, Panasonic verified the compatibility. By bridging the gap between the KAIROS and SDI devices, the converter enables the integration of conventional SDI signaling and processing into an SMPTE ST 2110 environment.
According to Matrox, customers of the platform can drive SDI monitors or ingest SDI signals into their vision mixer during live productions and conventional broadcasts by integrating ConvertIP DSS into the KAIROS workflow.
According to the company, the integration is especially crucial for conventional broadcast facilities that are switching from SDI infrastructures to ST 2110 infrastructures. ConvertIP DSS may link the KAIROS to pre-existing SDI monitoring equipment, such as multiviewer monitors or program feed monitors. ConvertIP DSH, the sister product of the ConvertIP DSS, can be used to convert a ST 2110 UHD stream and output a complete 2160p UHD signal to an HDMI monitor if HDMI monitoring is necessary.
"Panasonic has a long-standing relationship with Matrox Video, and we have worked together on many broadcast projects over the years. Validating the compatibility of these two solutions was very logical. By verifying this interoperability, we’re giving our partners the confidence to offer the ConvertIP device as a 2110 converter that will work with our KAIROS — ensuring there will be no unwelcome surprises in the middle of a live event.” -Kageyuki (Kenny) Fujimoto, lead manager of KAIROS Alliance at Panasonic
