Nevion releasing a 100G uplink add-on to its Virtuoso software-defined node

Nevion, a Sony Group Company and provider of virtualised media production solutions, has unveiled the Virtuoso UplinX, a 100G uplink add-on to the Nevion Virtuoso software-defined media node. 

The latest addition to the Virtuoso family, Virtuoso UplinX is designed to aggregate IP streams from up to eight Virtuoso appliances, providing a highly scalable and cost-effective approach to 100G interfacing.

A key component of Sony’s Networked Live offering, Nevion Virtuoso has been widely deployed across the globe to transport, process, and monitor signals in real-time. As the use of IP technology for live production increases, the demand for 100G interfaces is also growing.

This capability is particularly important because backend processing, whether it is video encoding/decoding or AV processing, is increasingly being centralised into server farms in data centres. For remote production, 100G is also often a required interface on site to the wide-area network (WAN).

The Virtuoso UplinX add-on provides multiple 100G uplink (and downlink) interfaces to the network. There is a choice of two, four or eight interfaces to fit the requirements of the specific deployment, with a single Virtuoso UplinX being able to handle up to 192 uncompressed HD and 48 uncompressed Ultra HD (UHD) video signals in each direction. 

Steve Hard, VP of Product Management, Virtuoso at Nevion, said, “Virtuoso UplinX is a very powerful add-on to the Virtuoso family, complementing the Virtuoso MI and the Virtuoso RE. It offers a versatile, high-scalable, and, most importantly, cost-effective solution to the needs for 100G interfacing now, and 400G in the future.”
