Nevion to showcase range and facility surveillance and managed video services solutions at GEOINT 20

San Antonio, TX, October 13, 2011 Nevion, a leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, will be demonstrating comprehensive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) solutions for government and military organizations at booth #1045 at the GEOINT 2011 Symposium taking place on October 16 – 19 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Nevion will also showcase its new VideoIPath solution for video exploitation of full motion video (FMV) and large volume streaming data (LVSD).

Nevion’s advanced range and facility modernization, surveillance and mission video systems provide real-time transport of video, data and telemetry over any network infrastructure—fiber overlay, SONET/SDH or IP—with VideoIPath for managing and provisioning video services.

VideoIPath for IP networks provides IP video transport with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management. It features comprehensive managed video services for complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics and network inventory. It greatly reduces the cost structure by bringing video services into the IP environment, where scalability is dramatically increasing and port costs are decreasing.

VideoIPath for IP now includes the VS902, a powerful new universal IP video transport platform that accepts any SDI or ASI input and provides both uncompressed encapsulation to IP and a choice of JPEG 2000 or H.264 compression. It offers transport protected by Streaming Intelligent Packet Switching (SIPS), a technology developed by Nevion as a more advanced transport protection method that provides perfect protection switching in addition to packet loss protection. VideoIPath also supports forward error correction (FEC), and provides automatic calculation of the FEC settings needed to meet a desired level of service.

VideoIPath is administered from a Web-based console for comprehensive managed video services. It simplifies the complexity of video-over-IP services by adding a network abstraction layer, allowing users to provision and monitor services without having to consider detailed configuration settings in each network element. By auto-detecting available video resources, VideoIPath can present appropriate video end-points and service profiles to users, enabling them to schedule and initiate connections in an intuitive option-selection process. VideoIPath manages bandwidth by allocating the necessary resources without overbooking. 

VideoIPath is also available for optical networks, providing a completely managed video services system for fiber-based networks. The fully integrated system combines advanced transport hardware for contribution-quality video transport with comprehensive end-to-end control, monitoring and management.

VideoIPath’s optical networking—driven by Nevion Flashlink and Sublime optical components—provides a highly cost-efficient solution for intra- and inter-facility signal distribution and management that assures quality, protection and efficiency. It integrates leading hardware components with sophisticated management capabilities for a new level of provisioning and resource management that dramatically streamlines and simplifies operations.

A critical component of VideoIPath optical networking is the new Flashlink ADP-3G module that can add, drop or pass signals on each layer, ensuring fast and safe signal switching for all nodes in the network.

Integrating existing infrastructures with next-generation technologies, Nevion solutions feature NEBS Level 3 certified products for operation in harsh environments, space-saving modules for lower operating costs, and comprehensive management and control, including remote monitoring. Unlike other equipment providers, Nevion offers integrated network interfaces. HD to SONET, 3G to fiber, and HD or SD to IP each require only one module, saving space, power and resources.

OpenGeo Showcases Open Source Geospatial Solutions for GEOINT Community

New York, New York, October 12, 2011 — OpenGeo, the open source geospatial software company behind the OpenGeo Suite will be exhibiting at the GEOINT 2011 Symposium. Hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), GEOINT is respected as the largest intelligence conference in the United States. The 2011 symposium runs from October 16 to 19 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Within the GEOINT community many are finding that open source technologies supported by OpenGeo – OpenGeo SuitePostGISGeoServerOpenLayers and more – offer superior capabilities and reduced costs for web mapping and geospatial services. The OpenGeo Suite is a complete OGC standards-compliant web mapping platform, built on cutting-edge open source geospatial components. These open source components, developed and maintained by active open source communities, feature functionality including: spatial data sharing, mapping, and online editing tools.

Enterprises, government agencies and others have adopted the powerful software stack to support their geospatial technology needs. They all rely on the support of a single, stable vendor, OpenGeo, to provide: professional services, expert support, deliver ready-to-run packaged binaries, access to training, enterprise-only extra features, and configuration and implementation expertise.

“Open source software is quickly gaining wide acceptance in the GEOINT community,” noted Ken Bossung, OpenGeo Sr. Vice President. “The GEOINT symposium provides a unique venue for those involved in national security – government, industry, homeland security, academia, non-governmental organizations etc. – to learn more about how they can improve their capabilities, meet their mission goals and reduce costs with open source technologies. It’s clear that awareness is higher than ever, for the first time at GEOINT there are sessions specifically focused on the use of open source software within the GEOINT community”. Mr. Bossung further illustrated this point by noting that his colleague, Edward Pickle, will be participating in the workshop Demonstration of Military Relevant Open Source Geospatial Software on Wednesday, October 19th.

OpenGeo will be exhibiting in booth #161, showcasing the OpenGeo Suite and GeoNode, OpenGeo’s collaborative web mapping solution.
