Matrox Video announced that the Matrox VERO ST 2110 signal generator and diagnostic appliance for SMPTE ST 2110-networked environments are now shipping.
An all-in-one appliance, VERO combines a fully-adjustable pattern generator and signal diagnostics integrating EBU LIST into a single tool, allowing broadcasters, system integrators, and manufacturers of ST 2110 devices and environments to validate ST 2110 equipment for compliance before deployment.
An SMPTE ST 2110-networked environment must deliver all of the benefits of an IP infrastructure — with the predictability of SDI -for it to be useful. Matrox VERO ensures that any new device will act as a “good network citizen” and work seamlessly with other ST 2110 devices -and maintain broadcast operations — when connected to an on-air production environment. Moreover, when an issue inevitably arises, the Matrox VERO can help diagnose the source of the problem.
“Testing is key to interoperability, and Matrox VERO plays an essential role in ensuring any new ST 2110 device introduced to ST 2110 infrastructures accurately meets SMPTE standards and industry norms,” said Francesco Scartozzi, VP of sales and business development Broadcast and Media Group at Matrox Video. “A test environment replicating real-world conditions, backed by a full-featured signal generator and diagnostic tool, empowers users with knowing the functional boundaries and limitations of their technology or ‘production environment.’ This knowledge is critical as broadcasters continue to evaluate an ever-growing number of ST 2110 devices for their facilities.”
