Tektronix announced that its Prism media analysis solution, which now delivers SMPTE ST 2110 signal generation and analysis, has won the NewBay Best of Show Award presented at the 2018 NAB Show by TV Technology.
Prism is an hybrid SDI/IP media analysis platform that enables a seamless and gradual transition from traditional SDI-based media workflows to new IP-based media infrastructure.
Prism offers the ability to perfom operational tasks of a waveform monitor, and also diagnose and correlate both SDI and IP signal types. According to Tektronix unlike other solutions in the market that convert an IP input signal into an SDI signal, Prism offers IP workflow media analysis capability including support for redundant paths (-7) and a diagnoses of ST 2110 traffic issues.
To help broadcasters make the transition to full IP deployments, the Prism media analysis solution supports the recently published SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards (-10,-20,-30,-40,-21) for professional media over managed IP networks along with field-upgradable signal generation capabilities that allow to test IP and 12G-SDI for hybrid/SDI networks.
