LAS VEGAS�Ravenna was all about IP at the 2017 NAB Show, hosting an IP Showcase that demonstrated full IP interoperability based on ST2110 and that was supported by a number of organizations, including AES, AIMS, AMWA, EBU, IABM, MNA, SMPTE and VSF.
The demonstration featured an audio section that included 15 Ravenna-based devices, all of which were fully interoperable with other AES67/ST2110 gear from various manufacturers. Part of the demo saw a Lawo console receive more than 20 audio streams generated by Ravenna/AES67 devices and video equipment from Grass Valley, Imagine and Panasonic. There were also examples of timing and synchronization (ST2059) and on ST2022-7 redundancy and NMOS IS04 discovery and registration.
The Ravenna booth also highlighted ST2110 and AES67 interoperability, like interoperability with a Dante-based TF-1 console from Yamaha. Attendees got to see stream redundancy between two Lawo A_Line analog-to-IP interfaces built on ALC NetworX�s COMi.MX 2x64ch Ravenna SoM boards.
Ravenna is planning on having similar presentations at the upcoming AES show in Berlin and the Network Technology Seminar hosted by the EBU.
