AMWA IS-05 NMOS Device Connection Management Specification

Lint Status Render Status

What does it do?

  • Provides a transport-independent way of connecting Media Nodes
    • Supports RTP, WebSocket and MQTT connections
  • Supports single + bulk connections, immediate + delayed connections

Why does it matter?

  • ST 2110 does not specify how to do this
    • So without IS-05 there is a danger of multiple proprietary approaches
    • ...and difficulty in adopting new stream formats.
  • Provides support for new specifications
    • such as IS-07 event transport

How does it work?

  • Control application sends instructions to Media Nodes
  • transport_params conveys the connection information
