Nevion Works with BT and Telenor
to Validate 5G Technologies
N

evion, award-winning provider
of virtualised media production
solutions, recently announced that it
is involved in the External Stakeholder
Board (ESB) of the EU-funded
5G-VINNI ("5G Verticals INNovation
Infrastructure") initiative headed by
Norwegian telecom service provider
Telenor. Working together with project
member British Telecom (BT), the UKbased telecom service provider, Nevion
is helping evaluate the performance
of 5G (the Fifth Generation of Cellular
Network Technology) for use in agile
media production for broadcasting.

At the invitation of BT, Nevion joined
the 5G-VINNI in September 2019 as an
external expert and a member of the
stakeholder board. As well as expertise
in the field of media transport, Nevion
is also contributing to the project with
the provision of its orchestration and
SDN control software VideoIPath
and its software-defined media node
Virtuoso.
The 5G-VINNI initiative comprises 23
partners including major operators,
academia and industry vendors. The
overall objective 5G-VINNI project
is to accelerate the uptake of 5G in
Europe by providing an end-toend (E2E) facility that validates
the performance of new 5G
technologies by operating trials
of advanced vertical sector
services. 5G-VINNI is run at four
main sites located in Norway,
UK, Spain and Greece.
Nevion has been working
closely with BT on the Adastral
Nevion VideoIPath - The perfect orchestration
Park Campus in Ipswich, UK,
for all networks

on which both companies have a
significant R&D presence. The initial
phases are qualifying the inherent
performance of 5G technology, looking
both at the data plane (the transport
of media over the network) and the
control plane (managing the flow
of media). Once the qualification is
completed, the project will move to
proof of concept trials.
Paul Muschamp at BT explains:
"There is a lot of interest in many
industries in 5G, and broadcasting
is no exception. The technology
offers the potential to create a more
agile live media production.
The
requirements
for
that application are quite
exceptional though, in terms
of high data volume, low
latency and no tolerance for
transmission
failure.
This
makes live media production a
great test of the performance
of 5G, which is the objective of
5G-VINNI."

Andy Rayner, Chief Technologist, at
Nevion adds: "Whilst 5G capabilities
are already provided by some service
providers across the world, many of
the key technology elements essential
for agile mobile media production are
yet to mature. Nevion is really pleased
to be helping the 5G-VINNI project
identify the areas that need to be
developed."
Separately, Nevion is leading
another EU-funded 5G project, called
5G-VIRTUOSA, which is looking into
Scalable Software Defined Network
architectures
for
cooperative
live media production exploiting
virtualised production resources and
5G wireless acquisition.

Video Clarity Unveils Continual
Product Evolution
A

s a continual evolution of its
product family, Video Clarity
has announced ground breaking new
capabilities for its RTM, ClearView, and
Venue Player solutions.
AV1 Decoder for RTM Manager
Enhances File Based QA: The RTM
Manager is a browser based control
and test solution that routinely applies
new decoding features to follow
customer needs and provide a unique
full-reference video and audio quality
assurance routine. Introduced is a new
AV1 decoder for RTM file tests which
provide fast, automated assessment of
video and audio quality for unlimited
numbers of VOD files being readied for
on-premise or Cloud based services.
With the RTM Manager, SVOD

and VOD delivery services get full
reference quality assurance for their
encoded files in a batch.
ClearView 9.4 Supports UHD
ST 2110 Workflows: Video Clarity
systems have provided ST 2110
network interfaces for several years.
Introduced is support for 4K and UHD
formats for ClearView full reference
quality testing. These new capabilities
are being provided in ClearView
9.4 which applies to specific new
ClearView system models or onpremise ClearView Software applied
to a minimum specification of server
or VM using Mellanox ConnectX-5 or
higher network adapters.
Applying high speed network
interface to full reference test systems

ClearView's ST 2110 networking for UHD content test workflow

allows the user to perform a
well-known technique for testing
encoder processing quality
whether it is applying JPEG XS,
HEVC, AV1, or another emerging
codec. The user may easily
capture UHD video, then feed
the original source content chosen for
testing into the network while, at the
same time, recording the content that
has been encoded and decoded as a
fully uncompressed sequence to test
for quality.
Applications include testing and
comparing separate vendor codec
implementations and testing a varying
set of content and bit rates through a
content delivery network.
Compressed File Playback Support
Added To All Venue Player Models:
Venue Player can record and playback
multiple uncompressed resolutions
and frame rates at the same time
reliably for quality assessment labs
and high quality display environments.
Venue Player systems now provide
added functionality to playback from
native compressed files via simple
drag-n-drop or programmed selective

of remaining tests

playback functions.
This new introduction brings
customers an additional convenience
factor for assessing video since, at
times, a compressed file playback
function is necessary for quality lab
visual assessments and test routines.
It also opens the door to new user
requirements in playback of high bit
rate mezzanine files or MPEG files for
content in high quality transmission
and display applications.
