We are also keen to support suppliers who wish to reach end users who might be in the market for their products. ​ This web page provides an opportunity for end users to see a list of hardware and software products w hen designing IP-based systems and for suppliers to reach potential new customers who are actively planning to make purchases. End Users The AMWA maintains a list of suppliers that provide open source and freeware plus commercial implementations of the NMOS specifications. The lists include information about which NMOS specifications, versions and features are supported and provide links to the manufacturers’ product pages. ​ ​ Use the links below to see the lists for (PLACEHOLDERS BELOW) Open source & freeware Controllers & registries Media nodes ​ ​ Many of these products have participated in the JT-NM Tested programme, with results available here . Note that the JT-NM Tested badge does not constitute a ‘pass’ but is simply an indication that testing results are available to download. Please note that the AMWA's product list is unlikely to include all products that are commercially available and that the AMWA does not make guarantees of conformance. If you know of an important product that is not listed, please let us know and we will see if it can be included!

  • Agile Media | AMWA

    Agile Media successful use of "it thinking" in a media environment ​ The media industry is going through a period of rapid change, which shows no sign of slowing down. The use of cloud-based services and storage for acquisition, management and delivery of content promises to offer great flexibility, without the need for traditional investment in specialised media devices. There is currently no quick or easy way to achieve this using open standards or specifications, and careful planning is required to deliver against end users’ needs. The most likely way to meet the demanding and ever-changing requirements of end viewers will be to employ more “IT-Thinking”, employing IT best practices and approaches to our industry, combined with the experience our industry has gained over the years about how best to deliver media to consumers. The AMWA has some resources that may help in this journey. First, there is a presentation by Brad Gilmer on IT Thinking for Professional Media . This highlights core concepts from the IT industry that may help us, as we seek to adapt IT techniques to our industry. Another resource is the Agile Media Blueprint , co-authored by Dr. Richard Cartwright and Brad Gilmer. This document, subtitled, “Creating and monetizing content using the Internet technology platform”, introduces concepts, along with an architectural blueprint that may be used as the basis for “cloud-fit” professional media facilities of the future. ​ AGILE MEDIA WORKFLOWS PRESENTATION ​ Given in the fall of 2019, this presentation provides the chance to learn about steps towards Agile Media Workflows. ​ To ensure that everyone has the same understanding of our goals and how the project would move forward, in the 45 minutes we cover the following topics:- Brief overview of the AMWA; What we are and what we do. Why business agility and agile workflows are a hot topic. What we mean by “agile”, “cloud” and “COTS” in this context. Further industry reading on this subject. AMWA projects and processes / how we work. Conditions to join this project. The next step - discovering and analysing end user’s most urgent needs. ​ Agile Media Workflows Presentation ​

  • Certification-original | AMWA

    Certification AMWA CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY Why was it created? The AMWA operates a Certification Authority (CA) to convey to vendors the legal right to use logos and to make claims about their product’s or service’s performance. It is a major goal of the CA, working with our partners, to increase a media company's confidence when selecting products to use in their programme-making and delivery processes. ​ What does it do? The AMWA Certification Authority works with partner organizations to demonstrate to the industry that products meet testing criteria established by our partners. It is important to note that the CA does not establish the criteria for certification, nor does it perform testing or analysis to determine whether a vendor's product meets those criteria - this work is done elsewhere. However, once the vendor has proof that their product meets the criteria, they may apply to the CA in order to be granted formal certification and access to logos and other marketing material to promote their products and services. ​ ​ Certification Authority Projects The first project for the Certification Authority has been with the UK’s Digital Production Partnership (DPP), comprising public service broadcasters, the BBC, Channel Four and ITV. Their goal is to promote interoperability between products used in the delivery of AS-11 DPP format MXF files prior to distribution. Further details are on our CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY – AS-11 DPP page. ​ ​ Benefits for End Users The move from tape to file based workflows can introduce concerns about interoperability between different products. It is important that media companies have confidence that a manufacturer's product meets its claims of compliance to an Application Specification and that files can be reliably exchanged between systems. ​ ​ Benefits for Suppliers The goal of product certification is to give users of products the confidence that there is interoperability between a range of suppliers and that MXF files created to an AMWA Application Specification will meet that specification for easy exchange. Further details are on our Certification Authority – AS-11 DPP Supplier Information page. ​ ​ ​
