Signum Bildtechnik

Founded in 1995 and based in Munich, Signum Bildtechnik specialises in digital video processing and archiving systems. It has three main market areas: broadcast, with software and hardware for TV studios, video production and post-production facilities; motion sport analysis, offering customised systems for high precision, video-based examination of movements; and motion automotive, involving software for professional processing of high-speed picture sequences for auto manufacturing and mechanical engineering firms.

The broadcast range comprises six main products. Signum GreenHive is a HD-SDI video and playout server aimed at cable head-ends, corporate TV and satellite channels. It is intended to deliver high quality video at low cost and can be used as a multichannel presentation server or for feeding video walls and webcasts, among other applications.

BlackHive II is a new generation of production system and video server, handling SD (16:9 and 4:3) and HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p) formats. It can be linked using a GB Ethernet connection to standard PCs and newsroom systems including SigiStudio MediAsset and is able to produce GPI-modes, fully automated rundown lists and communication interfaces such as MOS-Server.

NanoHive is an image playout server for stills and clips that can operate in SD and HD (with a 1080p option). The Signum digital media archive can be managed using the signum.CMS (Content Management System), giving access to images, sequences and videos for broadcast news production.
