Under the auspices of the Video Services Forum (VSF), Rohde & Schwarz featured three system devices at the IP Showcase, set up under the auspices of the Video Services Forum (VSF). The R&S PRISMON monitoring and multiviewer solution, R&S VENICE media server and R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution are on show. The devices all support SMPTE ST 2110, TR04 and TR05 and help facilitate the switch from SDI to IP infrastructures.

More than 75 manufacturers demonstrated the advantages of workflows based on SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA NMOS and presented options for the shift to working with IP. Using a variety of IP setups, visitors could check whether their expectations match reality with regard to switching to IP.

The IP Showcase can be seen at booth C12634 in the central hall at NAB 2018.
