Note: IPMX & RIST Demonstrations between Multiple Vendors in the Exhibit Hall.

This Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX) demonstration presents several aspects of the Technical Recommendation TR-10. Hardware and Software based IPMX Senders (Encoders) and IPMX Receivers (Decoders) from various companies taking part in this demonstration are implementing the System Timing as per TR-10-1. The network in this demonstration contains no PTP Grand Master in order to demonstrate that IPMX devices can operate without PTP present in the network. All video sources in this demonstration are asynchronous and part of the exhibit shows the low latency that is possible between the input signal of an IPMX Sender and the output of the IPMX Receiver.
