Macnica plans to celebrate the two-year anniversary of IPMX at ISE 2022 with demonstrations that emphasize the standard’s flexibility across hardware and software implementations. The company has worked with AIMS Alliance and other standards organizations to drive IPMX product development since AIMS introduced the standard at ISE 2020.
Macnica will also expand an IPMX software demonstration unveiled at InfoComm in October. The demonstration will show UHD video streaming from a PC to Macnica’s flagship MPA1000 full-stack AV over IP module, and showcase how IPMX technologies are seamlessly virtualized within an IT network.
“Hardware will always be essential to the ProAV industry and our IPMX Development Kit, which includes our flagship and SoC modules, will help manufacturers make open-standards AV over IP products that are IPMX-compliant. This means they will be interoperable and ready for use in a wide variety of use cases,” Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management, Macnica, and AIMS Alliance board member. “We also recognize that customers want to virtualize their AV systems like they do in every other technology workflow. A successful AV over IP standard must have robust support for software implementations and that is certainly true for IPMX.”
Macnica will demonstrate software-to-hardware implementations, with an overview of how manufacturers can leverage its IPMX Development Kit, consisting of their MPA1000 and ME10 SoC modules. The kit emphasizes many of the key technologies and applications required for managing AV over IP systems.
ISE 2022 takes place February 1-4 at the Fira Barcelona, Gran Via in Spain. Macnica exhibits at 5N200.
