TAG Enhances Multiviewer And Monitoring Platform For SDI Over IP

At the 2019 NAB Show, TAG Video Systems will show its MCM-9000 multiviewer and monitoring platform with new functionality and features designed to support increased resolutions and advanced formats (like 2022-6/7 & 2110 SDI over IP uncompressed). Multiple formats are supported on the same platform at the input and output enabling the MCM-9000 to adapt to the whole ecosystem of broadcast requirements without changing equipment.

TAG’s software-based MCM-9000 is an all IP-based UHD Multiviewer and Monitoring system that has been optimized to address the SMPTE ST-2022-6/2110 standard in HD and 4K/UHD sources at the input; with HD & UHD outputs available as 2022-6/2110 uncompressed, and/or MPEG-TS, and simultaneously HLS output to allow mobility/viewing outside the MCR/NOC. Supported formats include: 2022-6/7 & 2110 SDI over IP uncompressed; MPEG-TS compressed (including TR-01 JPEG2000); and OTT (HLS and MPEG-DASH) sources. NAB visitors will also see new functionality that supports UHD (4K) 60P 12G at the Mosaic output, and the addition of rich, colorful Tally/UMD with TSL and/or TAG API protocols.

The entire solution is supplied on a Dongle equipped with a Linux kernel. The system boots directly from the provided flash, which requires no installation, no hard drive, or any type of operating system on the server. The system also functions fully in a Virtual Machine (VM) environment with a VM image provided instead of a Dongle.

At the NAB Show the Company will also show its TAG IP Monitoring and Multiviewer Builder, designed for creating customizable configurations It allows users to customize the number of inputs, outputs, tiles, and design a mosaic layout.

Abe Zerbib, CEO at TAG V.S., said the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company recently launched a U.S.-based operation in Los Angeles under the leadership of Bill Apker, newly named vice president of Sales at TAG, U.S.
