Aveco’s Redwood BLACK high-end multipurpose video engine designed for advanced production control and master control automation will be on show at NAB 2019 is now available in the Americas.
Launched in Europe last year, this space-efficient and cost-efficient software-based integrated channel playout device and video engine comes with IP and SDI I/O. Redwood BLACK includes support for 4K UHD, HDR, SDI, SMPTE ST 2110, SMPTE ST 2022-6, Dolby E encoding/decoding, and a flexible storage architecture. Each unit is capable of 4-channels of SD/HD in/out or 1-channel I/O of 4K UHD. Also available are up to 2-channels of DVE and advanced graphics for sophisticated production presentation and MCR branding. This guarantees end-to-end ingest-to-playout 4K UHD HDR video delivery with a hybrid SDI-IP design or as part of a complete IP workflow.
Redwood BLACK seamlessly integrates with Aveco automation systems, to streamline studio operations and playout.
The company's studio production solution, consists of Redwood BLACK and Aveco automation, integrates with major newsroom computer systems including ENPS, iNews, Octopus, Annova and others. It includes MAM and provides the ability to edit-and-playout during ingest (growing file operations).
The master control playout solution also leverages Redwood BLACK and interfaces with Aveco automation that includes the industry’s first BXF 5.0 traffic integration and the award-winning Ad Juggler for sports networks, among a long list of market-leading exclusive features. Aveco’s integration of production control and master control operations includes automated cue exchange so there’s never an up-cut or a blip of black in switching on-air control between production control and master control.
Aveco's entire range of news studio production automation, studio production recording automation, master control, MAM with workflow automation, ingest and playout solutions will be demonstrated at the NAB Show.

The CRC (cyclic redundancy check) was primarily an error detector, but it did allow some early error correction systems to be implemented. There are many different CRCs but they all work in much the same way, which is that the…
The mathematics of finite fields and sequences seems to be a long way from everyday life, but it happens in the background every time we use a computer and without it, an explanation of modern error correction cannot be given.
Here we look at one of the first practical error-correcting codes to find wide usage. Richard Hamming worked with early computers and became frustrated when errors made them crash. The rest is history.
Error correction is fascinating not least because it involves concepts that are not much used elsewhere, along with some idiomatic terminology that needs careful definition.
Errors are handled in real channels by a combination of techniques and it is the overall result that matters. This means that different media and channels can have completely different approaches to the problem, yet still deliver reliable data.
