IBC 2013, hall 10, stand B21 – At IBC 2013, Axon (http://www.axon.tv/), the broadcast infrastructure, monitoring and control specialist, will launch Neuron - the industry’s first video product based on AVB (Audio Video Bridging (http://www.axon.tv/EN/avb)) technology. As well as integrating AVB, an open standard based on IEEE802.1, Neuron will help broadcasters create a live end-to-end audio and video production system with monitoring, management and protection. Neuron features both hardware and software and offers significant cost savings, reliability, increased flexibility for instant network access and multi-switching between live content such as a football game or game show. Live demos will take place on Axon’s stand (B21, hall 10).
Audio and video (AV) equipment connections have historically been one -way, single-purpose and point-to-point. As a result, the industry faces challenges to remove the inherent bandwidth, speed and the set-up problems of SDI-based infrastructures. With a move to an AVB-based network, all audio and video streams - as well as associated control, metadata and synchronisation for live productions - will be available on one single connection. Neuron provides broadcasters with managed networking functionalities, the ability to provide uncompressed video delivery across live production infrastructures, as well as compatibility with new standards such as 4K and existing formats.
‘A system that’s more integrated with Ethernet and IP has great potential to offer a substantial level of flexibility, while also saving money in a way that hasn’t been possible – until now,’ said
To help showcase the next chapter in AVB, the live Neuron demo will take place in an OB van provided by Dutch provider, United (Zonder Broadcast Facilities). Having built a four-camera OB van designed specifically for smaller projects, Axon developed a Neuron module for United to enable fibre multiplexing without the need for fibre. During the show, United will take visitors through a set up which will see Neuron with AVB in action.
‘It’s great to be involved in the transition away from traditional approaches and be part of an evolution that will clearly change the way live production infrastructures will be created over time,’ said
Axon’s Neuron has also been shortlisted as an IABM Design & Innovation Awards Finalist 2013. On Saturday 14th September, winners will be announced at an IABM reception during IBC.
Notes for editors - More on Neuron
A combination of hardware and software and AVB technology, Axon’s Neuron solution – part of the Synapse family - is an Ethernet application which uses the massive speeds of a modern IT-based infrastructure. It will change the way that live production infrastructures are created. While Neuron is built upon the open AVB standard, key additional functionality is built into the system. Full integration with Axon’s Synapse interfacing and conversion and Cortex advanced management solutions provides flexibility, modularity and control. Standalone Neuron boxes allow direct and cost-effective integration of cameras, screens, stage boxes and desktop I/O.
Axon’s Neuron provides point-to-point connectivity and back-to-back usage for a much less costly alternative to CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing), as well as point-to-point 2x HD and point-to -point 4K productions. Neuron is a fully networkable, extremely low latency infrastructure that supports varied production and real-time applications by replacing the conventional SDI router matrix and adding complete managed networking functionality.
