​Open Broadcast Systems Launches Ultra Low-Latency Encoder

The technology also marks the company’s foray into the provision of a complete solution, including software and a custom built hardware platform, based around IT hardware, it says.

“We will demonstrate the most complex investment in hardware and software the company has ever made,” says Kieran Kunhya, Founder and Managing Director, Open Broadcast Systems. “The technology achieves the latency of legacy hardware video transport platforms using a software-based solution. It can be used in low-latency workflows such as studio IP video and remote production environments, while having the ability to be reconfigured for other purposes, including offline file workflows and other IT business processes."

The company’s range of C-100 Encoders will also be part of the uncompressed IP demonstration on the Arista Networks stand.

Open Broadcast Systems says its uncompressed IP encoders and decoders have been deployed in numerous facilities as pure COTS solutions.
