Oregano Systems will be presenting a SMPTE 2059-2 clock synchronization solution as part of a an SDI over IP demonstrator at the IBC 2014 in Amsterdam. To this end Oregano has joined forces with two leading companies in the broadcasting industry: Macina and Altera providing IP cores and FPGAs respectively. We will show fast and precise clock synchronization over Ethernet enabling SDI over IP data transfer following the SMPTE 2022 standard. For more details please check the White Paper (PDF-file) or visit us at the Alter booth.
Oregano Systems supports the Special Olympics in 2014 and wish all athletes a lot of courage and success! We are pleased that we were able to support Special Olympics this year and thus help with special needs to encourage people in their sporting activity. The Special Olympics oath is: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let be brave in the attempt.” The main task of the Special Olympics is to integrate mentally disabled people through movement, games and sport in society. Special Olympics provides worldwide in 180 countries for more than 2.5 million children ages 8 and [more...]
Emergency columns have to be extremely reliable yet easy to operate. Oregano Systems offers a worry-free and proven communication solution for such applications. The on-site installation of our VoIP Intercom modules is straight forward and hassle-free while all configuration and maintenance tasks can be performed remotely. Typically, emergency columns have to cope with an extended temperature range and greatly varying humidity levels. The Oregano Systems VoIP Intercom II PoE is certified to work in such harsh environmental conditions. Upon request the Oregano Systems VoIP Intercom II PoE board will be coated for additional protection against dust and humidity. [more...]
In recent years, clock synchronization over Ethernet networks is quickly gaining ground. More and more industries discover the undisputable advantages of using existing IP-based networks for transporting precise time information rather than having to revert to dedicated for this matter. Only recently, the broadcasting industry intensified its efforts to replace traditional synchronization techniques like black burst or tri-level-sync with IP-based clock synchronization relying on the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol. However, a new and quite unique requirement arises when using PTP for broadcasting applications: short lock times (in the range of a few seconds), i.e. the time it takes until [more...]
Oregano Systems is proud to announce the syn1588® Visual Measurement System (VMS) for observing, comparing and analyzing 1 PPS signals of up to 22 different sources. The syn1588® VMS is a multi-channel, high resolution, high accuracy data acquisition system, dedicated to analyze the synchronization performance of clients/nodes using different means of synchronization mechanisms (e.g. IRIG-B, PTP, or NTP). It uses one or more syn1588® PPS capture cards each capable of measuring 22 input channels. The capture cards are based on the proven syn1588® PCIe cards, which have been enhanced to handle 22 event inputs simultaneously. Each input is capable of [more...]
