Thanks to the use of open standards, the media server is interoperable with systems from other manufacturers and can easily be integrated into existing infrastructures. R&S VENICE uses proprietary virtual storage access (VSA) technology to ensure reliable transmission even in critical applications.

To achieve the greatest possible interoperability in existing installations, R&S VENICE uses web service technologies and standard communications protocols such as VDCP, MOS and FIMS. R&S VENICE supports workflows based on SDI or SMPTE 2110 by simply exchanging the SFP+ module on the video I/O board. This modular concept allows customers to flexibly transition from SDI to IP, making R&S VENICE a future-proof investment.
