Explore Macnica's suite of tools and components for developing sub-frame latency, high quality 4K60P 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 over 1GbE IP gateway solutions built on the IPMX open standard.

Macnica's Hardware Products

An expanding suite of solutions that you can integrate into your audio, video, control, and testing products, including our ME10 SoC, MPA1000 modules & MPA1000/ME10 Launch Kit. Our products allow manufacturers to include IPMX interoperability in any video product with a minimal investment in engineering. Simple configuration and control are the core principles in the design of our modules. Use the Launch Kit to evaluate how standards-based video will work with your current products, to develop new products, and as a reference to the connections and configurations, you will need as you go into production.

Software Environment

Our flexible yet simple developer environment for these products features the Lua scripting language and the popular Angular framework. This enables the rapid development of highly specialized application software that you can customize to meet your unique end-user requirements.

IPMX Open-Standard

We believe that interoperable AV over IP has the power to transform both live video production and Pro AV with exciting new workflows and applications that could really revolutionize the way we tell stories with video and audio. Built on the collaborative effort of hundreds of leading companies, IPMX is designed to be the technology that manufacturers, integrators, and end-users need to achieve truly engaging IP media experiences.

NABSHOW 2021: Exhibits October 10 – 13, 2021

NABSHOW 2021: Where Content Comes to Life

Macnica will feature the EASYSS10 SDI-10G IP Gateway Module and EASYSS10 Development Kit. The EASYSS10 is a full-stack, small form factor SoM (System on Module) that enables OEM customers to easily add SDI-to-IP gateway functions to their broadcast and professional AV products with a minimal investment in engineering. Designed for use on 10 Gbps networks, the EASYSS10 can simultaneously convert up to three 3G-SDI streams (1080p) or six HD-SDI streams (480p, 720p or 1080i) for transport on Internet Protocol networks using the SMPTE 2110 suite of standards.

ST 2110 is fast becoming the standard for transporting video over IP networks in broadcast environments. It is a truly open standard, promising plug-and-play interoperability of all kinds of media devices. Still, to use ST 2110 in a video product, you would normally need to make a significant investment in engineering time. That’s where Macnica comes in. As a SMPTE member company, we have spent years helping to develop ST 2110 and related standards, while at the same time packaging our knowledge and intellectual property for other companies to use. We also support the movement within SMPTE to publically test and certify the compliance of various products to industry standards. Macnica’s “Media over IP Package” design was tested and certified for both ST 2110 and NMOS at a JT-NM qualification event in August 2019.

We also have a suite of 4K AV-over-IP Pro AV solutions built to the IP Media Experience aka. IPMX open standard. IPMX builds on foundational work from SMPTE, AWMA, and VSF. For media transport, IPMX uses the SMPTE ST 2110 standard. It is the de-facto IP protocol adopted by the M&E industry for the carriage of video, audio, and data over IP networks. Its support for both uncompressed and compressed video and audio makes it ideal for Pro AV applications. We look forward to seeing you live at the event to learn more.
