Video over IP solution for media transmissions allows media service providers to transport any media over any network. 

FREMONT, CA: Today, the media and entertainment industry are utilizing the IT-based services and solutions to accomplish their jobs, which involve video production, post-production, and streaming services. The Video over IP connectivity solutions offered by Xilinx, a semiconductor company, is designed for the broadcast and pro audio/video (A/V) markets. The IP-based solutions come with ‘any media over any network’ transport capabilities.

The semiconductor company’s Video over IP protocols solutions are influenced by the industry standards and experience by Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers (SMPTE.) The innovative solution combines numerous compressed JPEG 2000 or MPEG transport streams or uncompressed SDI streams onto 1Gigabit and 10Gigabit Ethernet IP networks. The technology also incorporates a data loss prevention mechanism as Forward Error Correction with the benefit of option, which can recover lost information packets and strengthen the media transmission.

Xilinx’s Video over IP cores and reference designs provide protection against switching standards. The IP carries powerful error correction techniques and is capable of handling up to 512 transport streams. The senior manager broadcast and pro a/v business segment at Xilinx, Robert Green, states that the IP-based technologies can create enormous opportunities for savings cost, producing video more efficiently. The transition to IP-based technologies also creates much confusion and hesitation by participating vendors through protocol selection for different applications. Roberts also explains that collaboration of Xilinx device with an Ethernet PHY provides upgraded firmware Video over IP platform and enable the feature to support any media over any network while including cores and reference designs and fasting time-to-market and low-risk deployment.
