NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover Mission Team relies on 4K video collaboration system based on Crestron DM NVX AV-over-IP streaming media devices

Last month, NASA’s Perseverance rover landed successfully in Jezero Crater on Mars and has taken its first test drive. You may have seen video of the mission team at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) standing up and cheering when news of the successful landing arrived here on Earth. The Mars 2020 Perseverance Mission Team is the first at NASA JPL to use a new high-resolution, multi-mission AV collaboration system developed by Amplified Design LLC, which was completed in time for the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover launch in July of 2020.

This AV collaboration system spans 45 new collaboration areas across multiple floors at NASA JPL’s Space Flight Operations Facility in Pasadena, California. The system is based on nearly 200 Crestron DM NVX streaming media devices that provide secure, real-time AV encoding and decoding for the transport of real-time 4K video streams over standard Gigabit Ethernet. The DM NVX backbone distributes video to both the large and small work rooms as well as mission support areas for anywhere-to-anywhere video sharing. Crestron developed the DM NVX streaming media devices using Intel® Arria® 10 SoC FPGAs.
