Video over IP Accelerator Transport card (VIPA™)

Macnica provides users within the broadcast industry’s the most proven and tested video over IP solution in the form of an easy to use PCIe server card, which would replace an SDI video capture card in a standard system. Macnica has been developing the underlying IP for the SMPTE standards since 2011 with demonstrated reliability and full standard support at multiple interop events.

Macnica’s patented clock recovery allows video clock recovery from the IP data and tolerance for significant network jitter.

Macnica’s VIPA™ card offers the industry’s most reliable, proven implementation of the video over IP standards, complete with software to easily integrate it into an NMOS-based system. Macnica offers 10G and 25G versions of VIPA™ to support all network deployments.

Macnica’s VIPA™ card is shipped with an ST 2110 Developer Edition License, a full SDK, a powerful development environment including simulation mode, and applications for NMOS. Licenses can be obtained on a permanent or subscription basis.
