GV Node delivers a broadcast-centric, real-time, distributed routing and IP processing node that supports IP and SDI workflows with vertically accurate switching and integrated video and audio processing, including Kaleido multiviewing for live production, playout and general purpose infrastructure.
Up until now, there has not been an IP aggregation, processing and edge routing node designed for live production in broadcast, which can offer vertically accurate switching along with other signal processing and routing capability. With the introduction of GV Node, common off-the-shelf (COTS) IP switches can be used in broadcast and media facilities with the assurance that these switches offer transparent broadcast-centric operation and processing.
GV Node is designed to handle deterministic vertically accurate switching within IP, supporting the suite of SMPTE ST 2110 or 2022-6 for IP inputs and outputs, with the option to provide Class-D ultra low latency SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy. The addition of isochronous and asynchronous support in SMPTE ST 2022-6 workflows provides a robust capacity to manage source timing variances. For full broadcast capabilities, GV Node also supports TICO visually lossless compression for 4K UHD applications, the extensive range of Densité signal processing modules, along with a fully integrated and highly scalable Kaleido multiviewer to deliver the highest quality monitoring with the most flexible layout available.
A GV Node IP processing and routing node comprises the following elements:
Optional I/O cards:
In addition to modular cards from the Densité product line, GV Node also offer cards with specialized functions.
