Macnica has forged a technology partnership with Tektronix. Through the global agreement, Tektronix has embedded Macnica’s video-over-IP technology into Prism, a new media analysis platform designed to smooth broadcasters’ transition from SDI-based to IP-based infrastructures.
“As the broadcast industry begins a phased and gradual migration to an all IP-infrastructure, there’s strong demand for test and monitoring solutions that can help engineers manage hybrid facilities using both SDI and IP signals. That’s the strategy behind Prism, which offers the unique ability to diagnose and correlate both signal types,” said Charlie Dunn, general manager, video product line, Tektronix. “Our product strategy is driven by the ultimate desire to address customer requirements. We chose to partner with the industry leader in core technologies for video delivery over IP networks to enable us to bring the right solutions to our customers at the right time. Through our agreement with Macnica, we were able to use their interoperability-tested solution to bring our product to market much faster.”
