Monitoring and multiviewer solution supports SMPTE ST 2110

Live interworking between different vendors based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard was the focus of the IP Showcase at IBC 2017 where Rohde & Schwarz participated with its IP-based R&S PRISMON monitoring and multiviewer solution for broadcast and streaming media.

The current SMPTE ST 2110 suite is a key prerequisite for flexible, efficient definition and implementation of broadcast workflows in IP-based environments. The R&S PRISMON A/V content monitoring and multiviewer solution from Rohde & Schwarz features a fully software-based, modular system architecture.

This clever design feature allowed R&S PRISMON to be quickly and flexibly adapted while the ST 2110 draft was still evolving into its now final version, a result of ongoing standardisation work as well as pre-NAB and pre-IBC live plug-tests.

Support for SMPTE ST 2110

Now with first parts of the ST 2110 suite formally approved by SMPTE, R&S PRISMON will also officially support these important specifications in its next software update scheduled for Q4/2017.

The company will present its solution at SMPTE’s Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in Hollywood from Oct. 23 to Oct. 26, 2017, at booth 216 in the Ray Dolby Exhibit Hall.
