NEWT – Transitional A/V Connectivity in a Small Package

Market-ready SMPTE ST 2110 OEM module for professional video connectivity and processing

MEDIA NETWORKING IS DIFFICULT; EXPENSIVE; RISKY; A MOVING TARGET…

The NEWT™ is a market-ready module that enables you to quickly and easily add AIMS-compliant video connectivity to your product. Its small form-factor is well-suited to point-of-use boxes or as a module for integration into larger equipment, such as monitors.

NEWT

  • High-density: up to 3 NEWT modules may be mounted in 1RU offering up to 12x3G-SDI and 6x10GE of IP bandwidth.
  • Worry-free interoperability with AIMS-compliant IP POWERED BY COVELOZ
  • Freedom to choose your desired broadcast control application, through support of industry-standard API’s for registration, discovery and connection management
  • Accelerates the introduction of your products
  • Differentiate your product with customization

The NEWT board is host to our SWIFT Virtual ASIC.

SWIFT supports multiple audio and video transport, synchronization and control protocols covering the entire AIMS roadmap and more, including NMOS, Dante/SAP, RAVENNA, and DashBoard control. As standards moves, your hardware investment keeps pace. SWIFT takes the worry out of the network.
