This page lists open source, free and commercial implementations of NMOS specifications.

This list is unlikely to be complete, and AMWA does not make any guarantees of conformance.

To have an implementation added, please submit a GitHub issue to the NMOS repo, including the information required in the table. The implementation must be available, and a link to a repo, download page or product page must be provided.

Note that inclusion in this list is not an endorsement by AMWA or a guarantee of conformance to the specifications.

Commercial Hardware & Software

This section lists commercial implementations of the NMOS specifications. It includes information about which NMOS specifications, versions and features are supported, and provide links to the manufacturers’ product pages. (Note to manufacturers: the linked product page must include information about NMOS support!)

Note that inclusion in this list is not an endorsement by AMWA or a guarantee of conformance to the specifications.

Many of these products have participated in the JT-NM Tested programme, with results available here. Note that the JT-NM Tested badge does not constitute a ‘pass’, but is simply an indication that testing results are available to download.
