Epsom, Surrey, UK, 05 October 2022: Pebble, the leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, announces that its solutions have been tested by the Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) as a part of the NMOS ecosystem. Passing the rigorous tests demonstrates Pebble’s commitment to the adoption of open standards and gives customers further benefits as part of industry-leading standards in governance, interoperability, and security.
The JT-NM is a self-coordinating group of industry bodies working together to forward the development of IP technologies for professional media systems. JT-NM Tested is a stringent test of how vendor equipment conforms to key parts of SMPTE standards, AMWA NMOS specifications and selected real-world scenarios. It helps end users more confidently make purchase decisions from vendors whose products conform to relevant standards and specifications.
In turn, vendors get public recognition that their products meet the criteria established by the JT-NM, the appropriate badges and inclusion into catalogues of tested products and will be able to use the badges and make marketing statements to encourage the sales of their products.
As demonstrated at IBC2022 in the IP Showcase Theatre, Pebble solutions meet JT-NM Tested conditions for both SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS/TR-1001-1 workflows and integrations. JT-NM Tested makes it easier for end users to identify which products conform to key parts of SMPTE standards and AMWA NMOS specifications. They will also be able to make more confident purchasing decisions from the vendors whose products conform.
Technical Lead at Pebble, Cristian Recoseanu explains, “The hope of enabling smoother IP integrations inside media production facilities has long been a hot topic. It has gained renewed significance because of a greater desire to make the transition to IP technologies while keeping complexity and integration efforts under control. By being a confirmed part of the NMOS open ecosystem, Pebble has shown how its solutions adhere to the most testing specifications and removes the barriers for simple and seamless integrations.”
Pebble’s Head of R&D, Daniel Robinson says, “Meeting the test conditions laid down by JT-NM allows our customers to gain visibility into our track record in terms of aligning our solutions with the essential industry standards and specifications. It’s a testament to the great efforts of our teams designing systems and tools that meets the needs of broadcasters as they overcome the challenges of transitioning to IP-based technologies. I’m delighted that our efforts have been recognised in this way and it was brilliant to participate in the program with other esteemed industry peers.”
