Launched in 2014, Evertz Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions has
been leading the industry's transition to IP using SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA
NMOS. With over 500 installations by the largest media companies in the world,
Evertz SDVN has been deployed from small to very large enterprise scale
applications that include production, playout, transport, and distribution.
Evertz SDVN is a complete solution that includes advanced orchestration,
monitoring, and analysis tools that have full control of high capacity switch
fabrics and edge devices.
A move to IP allows media organizations to scale their system to any size,
across all geographic regions, while future proofing for new formats and
An IP facility provides increased agility where media organizations can add or
remove services quickly to maximize revenue and lower operational costs.
IP enables flexibility. Build a format agnostic facility to support various
content types, multiple standards, and streams for both compressed and
Evertz is the proven leader in IP. With over 500 global installations, Evertz
SDVN is the solution used by the largest media companies in the world.
Leverage our IP solution to provide frame accurate, reliable, and secure
services with highly available architectures.
IP provides a new and efficient way to manage broadcast media facilities. SDVN
Orchestration, Monitoring, and Analysis tools provide unprecedented control
As the orchestration and control layer of a system, MAGNUM SDVN leverages
Evertz' 10 / 25 / 40 / 100GE high capacity switch fabrics, media IP gateways,
traditional COTS switches, as well as Evertz' wide array of SDI products
including EQX 3G / HD / SD-SDI routers. Evertz' SDVN offers broadcasters, content
distributors and service providers a flexible, format agnostic and scalable
infrastructure for SD, HD, 3G, and Ultra HD (4K and 8K) video workflows.
VistaLINK® PRO is an advanced end-to-end network management system (NMS)
for the broadcast, cable, satellite, and IPTV industry. VistaLINK® PRO
provides a user friendly, customizable, single interface to manage a
facility's entire operational ecosystem, allowing for a reduction in
operational expenditures (OPEX) and an increase in quality of service.
Evertz' Big Data Analytics system, inSITE, collects, and aggregates all machine
data points (logs, syslogs, events, and metrics from any source). These
collected data sets are correlated to provide users with more effective
troubleshooting information (to identify the root cause faster), key performance
metrics (for system performance and resource usage), and real-time dashboards.
In addition to these dashboards, inSITE provides direct interfacing with other
Evertz software tools (VistaLINK® PRO, MAGNUM, and Mediator-X) to leverage
its data analysis abilities. For broadcasters, inSITE is the leading platform
for operational intelligence within their facility.
Evertz offers a wide range of high capacity IP Switch Fabrics for all types of
facilities. The 3080IPX is available in 16 / 32 / 64 port 10G variations and
48 / 128 25G port variations. Evertz' enterprise scale EXE-VSR routing platform
is available in 16, 26, and 36 RU variations and can support from 512 to 2048
ports. The switch fabrics use SFP+, SFP28+ and QSFP28 technology to support
1 / 10 / 25 / 40 / 100GbE interfaces to meet any uncompressed video standard today and
in the future.
Evertz can also design a system utilizing traditional Commercial Off the Shelf
(COTS) routing switches at its core. Unlike other broadcast IP routing systems
utilizing COTS architecture, Evertz can offer direct API control of COTS
switches. This higher level, a more deterministic method of control, has been
developed through Evertz' experience integrating our SDVN solution with COTS
switch fabrics in several installations (from small to enterprise scale)
that are currently on air today. This level of API control enables COTS
switches to perform with measurable and repeatable low latency clean switching
that cannot be matched by other vendors offering COTS based solutions. Evertz
API control can be utilized by many different COTS brands including Arista and
Evertz SDVN has an extensive list of Edge Devices that can be used in an
IP-based facility. Depending on the function of the edge device, various types
of interfaces may be supported: 12 / 3G / HD-SDI, ASI, AES / MADI, and / or
10GbE / 25GbE / 100GbE. Each Evertz Edge Device has a main and backup Ethernet
port (with support for ST 2022-7) for redundancy.
Leading French broadcaster Metropole Television SA (commonly known as the M6
Group) has futureproofed its new Master Control Room near Paris by placing
state of the art Evertz IP technology at the heart of its operation. The
switch from SDI to IP (ST 2110) will allow M6 to easily incorporate new HD
services, new delivery platforms and new video formats such as Ultra HD 4K and
