Macnica plans IPMX and open standards education at this year’s spring AV shows, showcasing its IPMX Product Development Kit to ignite interoperable AV over IP product development. In addition, Macnica will power three of its own IPMX demonstrations at both shows that demonstrate the flexibility of IPMX for AV over IP systems.
At ISE 2022, Macnica will emphasize its IPMX Development Kit, which includes many of the key technologies and applications required to build and manage AV over IP systems, including sub-frame latency, USB extension, and outstanding UHD quality. The kit includes Macnica’s full-stack MPA1000 modules and ME10 SoCs, both of which transport HDMI 2.0 4K60 4:4:4 video, audio, and control data over 1GbE networks, and support JPEG-XS compression, Lua scripting, and an integrated web interface with customizable APIs.
That spirit of interoperability for product developers will carry over into Macnica’s in-booth three demos at ISE and InfoComm:
- A fundamental IPMX Gateway Reference Design demonstration that shows the MPA1000 powering low-latency video, audio, and USB control over KVM to Macnica’s free white-box IPMX gateway reference design.
- A simple customization with Lua Scripting demonstration that exposes the rich set of APIs within Macnica’s MPA1000 module and ME10 SoC, which provides OEMs with a rapid and flexible product development path.
- A pure IPMX 4K software implementation that shows UHD 4K60 video with JPEG-XS compression streaming from a laptop to the MPA1000, and how IPMX technologies are seamlessly virtualized within an IT network.
“We have prepared our IPMX Development Kit to specifically help hardware vendors quickly test, evaluate and develop IPMX-ready AV over IP products,” said Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management, Macnica and AIMS Alliance board member. “At ISE and InfoComm, we aim to show not only how we can help OEMs accelerate IP product development, but also show how freely they can develop for a wide variety of AV applications including collaboration rooms, digital signage, live production, and medical analysis.”
Macnica has worked closely with the AIMS Alliance and other standards organizations to drive IPMX product development since AIMS introduced the standard at ISE 2020. With several IPMX technologies close to ratification, Macnica’s technology innovations and demonstrations for the Spring AV shows will show the versatility of IPMX for a variety of AV verticals and installations, along with quick time to market for IPMX product development and multi-vendor interoperability.
Macnica will also demonstrate how the MPA1000 and ME10 SoC share the same product development and real-world operational benefits for different production volumes. The MPA1000 module is built for product prototypes and smaller production runs, while the ME10 SoC is optimized for larger production runs and used in products with compact dimensions.
Macnica will be showcasing at ISE 2022 and Infocomm 2022. Check out their website for more information.
