The Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) has tested the systems and services of Pebble, devoted to automation, content management and integrated channel design, as a part of the NMOS family of networked media specifications. Passing the JT-NM Tested program demonstrates the level of Pebble’s commitment to the adoption of open standards and gives customers further assurance regarding compliance with accepted standards in governance, interoperability and security.
As demonstrated at IBC2022 in the IP Showcase Theatre, Pebble systems meet JT-NM Tested conditions for both SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS/TR-1001-1 workflows and integrations. The JT-NM is a self-coordinating group of industry bodies working together to promote the development of IP technologies for professional media systems. They have published the JT-NM Tested Catalogue, listing vendor results and also contains test plans executed by the JT-NM Tested Team in Wuppertal, Germany in August of 2022 at Riedel Communications
The JT-NM Tested Program intends to show how closely vendor equipment conforms to key parts of SMPTE standards, AMWA NMOS specifications and selected real-world scenarios. End users can use the results to make purchase decisions more confidently, from vendors whose products comply with relevant standards and specifications.
In turn, vendors gain public recognition that their products meet the criteria established by the JT-NM, the appropriate badges and inclusion into catalogues of tested products. The badges can be used to make marketing statements to encourage the sales of the vendors’ products.
Technical Lead at Pebble, Cristian Recoseanu said, “Enabling smoother IP integrations inside media production facilities has long been the industry’s goal and has gained renewed significance because of a greater desire to make the transition to IP technologies while keeping complexity and integration efforts under control. As a confirmed part of the NMOS open standards system, Pebble has shown how its solutions adhere to demanding specifications and remove the barriers to simple and direct integrations.”
Pebble’s Head of R&D, Daniel Robinson said, “Meeting the test conditions laid down by JT-NM gives customers visibility into our ability to align our solutions with the essential industry standards and specifications. It’s a testament to our teams’ efforts to design systems and tools that meet the needs of broadcasters as they overcome the challenges of transitioning to IP-based infrastructure.” www.pebble.tv
