Ultimate IP processing power

alt text

Network Attached Processor (NAP)

Built to fit in any existing and future IP broadcast infrastructure, the Neuron platform offers the most powerful processing capabilities in the industry. With its ethernet-based architecture, Neuron can accommodate a wide range of audio-video processing needs in IP environments: frame synchronization, up/down conversion, color correction, HDR conversion, audio (de)embedding and audio shuffling. It also bridges the gap between baseband SDI and any type of IP media streams, protecting your investments today for future demands.

Product Benefits

  • Unparalleled density

    Because the processing boards are entirely based on a 100Gb/s architecture, and because we are using the biggest and most powerful FPGAs in the world, one board can process up to 32 HD channels or 8 UHD channels. Two boards will fit in a 1 RU frame.

  • Huge set of functions

    Bridging, Gateway, Embedding, De-embedding, Synchronization, HDR<>SDR, Shuffling, Back-up switching, Isolation (firewall), up/down/cross conversion and more video and audio processing is possible.

  • Designed for IP and hybrid environments

    Neuron is entirely based on IP technology and has SDI connectivity as option. This ensures a feature set which includes all IP-specific functions without having to use additional modules.

  • Designed for optimized TCO

    Support of high bandwidth QSFP+ modules to decrease connectivity costs. Using the same hardware for all processing variations ensuring the highest flexibility on the market. On average 60% less power consumption.

  • Easy to use and intuitive interface

    Neuron can be configured and controlled using a very intuitive graphical user interface in Cerebrum, EVS' control and monitoring system. This GUI gives a graphical representation of the internal processing rather than just a list of parameters.

  • Future ready

    As the Broadcast Market is changing rapidly, Neuron is able to adapt to any environment, whether you are in a broadcast facility or in a datacenter.

Key Features

  • Various A/V processing capabilities, such as: frame sync, up/down conversion, color correction, HDR conversion, audio (de-)embedding and shuffling, JPEG-XS compression and UHD remapping
  • Completely flexible I/O configuration
  • The various available applications are all running on the same hardware, making it possible to change functionality without swapping hardware
  • 2 processing boards per 1RU frame
  • Unparalleled density (up to 32 HD channels or 8 UHD channels per board)
  • Dual 100Gb/s Ethernet QSFP28 connections per board
  • Quad 25Gb/s Ethernet SFP28 connections per board
  • ST2022-6, ST2110-10/20/30/31 and AES67 compliant
  • NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 compliant
  • Hot swappable redundant power supplies
  • Optional SDI connectivity (8x 12G in, 8x 12G out, 24x bidirectional 3G SDI on HD-BNC)
  • Up to 60% less power usage

Components

  • Neuron NFR2000
    Neuron 1RU frame
    • Redundant power supplies
    • 2 slots for processing modules
    • Available as Broadcast version (I/O on the back) or as Datacenter version (I/O on the front)
    • Integrated cooling in the power supplies
  • Neuron NAM8192 processing board
    The world’s biggest IP audio channel shuffler
    With new IP-based audio formats, like ST2110-30 and ST2110-31, the amount of audio channels within a broadcast facility can easily grow into the thousands. Managing which channels belong in which audio streams and shuffling the various channels from one stream to the other is becoming quite a challenge. With the Neuron Audio Matrix option, you can shuffle, mix and delay thousands of audio channels in a 8192x8192 audio matrix.
  • Neuron NPB1616 processing board
    Powerful IP-SDI Bridge and A/V processor in one
    This is a multi-channel A/V-over-IP transceiver developed for use within low-latency and high-bandwidth IP networks. Intended to be used in combination with the 40 SDI expansion module, the NPB1616 can process up to 32 channels of video and multiple channels of audio. It can convert 16 SDI signals to IP and convert 16 IP streams to SDI at the same time. Each video channel is capable of frame synchronizing and proc amp. Converting ST2022-6 to 2110-20/30 and back is also possible.
