Dejero and Utah Scientific join AIMS

Key technology and major industry players are continuing to join the ranks of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) member companies, with the objective of promoting open standards and interoperability in the transition to IP

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions for the transport of live video across challenging IP networks, has joined the recently formed Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). Also Utah Scientific has become a member with a mandate to bring IP solutions to the market that will offer complete interoperability, are based on open standards, and integrate seamlessly into media workflow environments while fostering industry innovation and efficiency.

“Dejero has always advocated for and is a firm believer in the adoption of open standards,” said Dejero CEO Brian Cram. “We are excited to join with like-minded technology leaders that also believe in interoperability and open APIs to help accelerate the transition to IP and cloud technologies.”

The mandate of the AIMS organization is to bring IP solutions to the market that feature open standards, complete interoperability, and seamless integration across media workflow environments. Such standards allow broadcasters to meet current needs while giving them the agility and flexibility to adjust business models in the future without having to rebuild workflows. AIMS endorses an IP transition plan that includes support for SMPTE 2022-6, AES67, and VSF recommendations TR-03 and TR-04.


"Utah Scientific has been working to support IP in the industry for a number of years already, releasing the industry's first IP switch designed specifically for the demands of broadcast back in 2007," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO, Utah Scientific. "And as a company that's been serving the industry for 40 years, we know the problems that customers can encounter when we as manufacturers don't embrace standards and work together toward interoperability in the transition to the next technology. We support the work of the AIMS organization and look forward to participating in the decisions that will shape the future of IP in broadcast."

At the 2016 NAB Show, Utah Scientific will introduce the latest in its IP initiatives: a new family of IP gateway input and output cards that provide two-way conversion of SDI video signals and SMPTE-2022 signals over a 10G Ethernet connection. The new gateway cards are designed to address broadcast customers' requirements as they continue to migrate away from baseband SDI signals and to all-IP-based operations. The new cards work with all UTAH-400 Series 2 enterprise routers and also plug directly into a stand-alone 2-RU utility chassis. As with all Utah Scientific products, the new offerings are covered by a 10-year warranty and no-fee customer support.
