NewTek, Vizrt and Cisco to Show Virtualized Products at NAB 2018

April 05, 2018 by Scott Carroll

NewTek, Vizrt and Cisco will conduct a joint demonstration of virtualized live IP video production and control room automation at NAB 2018 from the Cisco booth #SU8502CM. The demonstration will include NewTek’s NVP, a virtualized IP Series, 44-input, IP, 4K, 60P live production system, and Vizrt’s Viz Opus compact control room automation system. Both products will be running as virtual machines in Cisco’s VMware vSphere with Hypervisor management on Cisco hardware with Horizon View desktop virtualization. NewTek NDI® IP video streams interconnect the two products, running across a network using a Cisco Nexus 5000 and 9000 series switches.

“Virtualization and control room automation over IP are the future of live production,” said Roger Sherwood, director of business development, Media Segment, Service Provider Business, Cisco. “Featuring this first-of-its-kind virtualized control room along with NewTek and Vizrt is sure to be a draw for many of our customers this year at the show.”

Example of four virtual machines running on one server: Two NewTek IP Series VMC1 production systems, Viz Engine graphics, and LiveXpert sports scoreboard and media playback. All are communicating and exchanging audio and video via NDI.

“NewTek have long believed that the future of broadcast production is based on software, computers and networks; and have based the last 15 years of our R&D on building products to this vision. It is clear that this vision aligns with that of Cisco and Vizrt. Together we have worked on providing a demo of an entirely virtualized production system and are showing it actually working at NAB,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, NewTek president and CTO. “Because we are completely software-based, NewTek is the only major live production solution capable of being virtualized today. Combine that with our leadership position in IP video, including NDI and SMPTE ST 2110 support, you have an incredibly cutting-edge solution for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations.”

“The Vizrt world is all about now and the future – and everything in between. What we are showing with our partners, Cisco and Newtek, is so close to “now” that one can touch it,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt CTO. “This proof of concept shows how software-based tools make live productions ever more flexible so that industry can be prepared for now and the future at the same time.”
