In Las Vegas, AVNation’s Bradford Benn is back in the InfoComm 2022 studio with Andre Testa, the Senior Director of FPG and Hardware Engineering at Matrox. Matrox is part of AIMS, a networking topology organization that’s promoting IPMX as an industry open standard.
IPMX is based on ST 2110, a standard widely used in broadcast. When Matrox saw that it had been adopted there, they wanted to capitalize on it, adapting it to the Pro AV industry. Since IPMX is truly an open standard, once it’s popularized and adopted universally, users can pick and choose amongst manufacturers. Essentially, it ensures that there can always be another solution without starting over from scratch.
In the AIMS booth, Andre says that they’re displaying a Matrox Convert IP device, which converts an HD signal to IPMX.
