TAG multiviewers have the ability to support up to forty-eight 1080i ST 2110 sources with 2022-7 on a single server.
Looking to help broadcasters reduce operating costs while maintaining a “Zer0 Friction customer experience” across the content distribution chain, TAG Video Systems continues to increase its support for additional sources, interfaces and formats. The company has also added new audio output functionality and an updated layout editor.
The company said that increased capabilities for handling additional sources, interfaces and formats helps clients reduce operating costs and improve quality of experience.
TAG has been busy demonstrating its ability to support up to forty-eight 1080i ST 2110 sources with 2022-7 on a single server. This expands a facility’s capacity to handle more uncompressed content streams on one COTS server, thus helping customers get the most from their investment. This includes the ability to freely mix and match inputs with other uncompressed and compressed formats (including UHD).
TAG has also announced support for Mellanox ConnectX-6 , the newest addition to the Mellanox Smart Interconnect suite. This brings 200 Gb connectivity, and combined with TAG’s optimized network architecture and software, will enable greater channel capacities and increased opportunities for use of 2022-7. In addition, support for the Common Media Application Format (CMAF), an open, extensible standard that enables efficient streaming over the HLS and MPEG-DASH protocols, has been added to the platform to further expand the multitude of formats that TAG supports.
The company has also introduced a mosaic audio output that will allow the most flexible audio monitoring setup, customizable by each facility to their individual specifications. Other new features include support for additional encryption technologies; an updated layout editor; advanced SCTE-35 monitoring features; and configurable management proxy.
TAG’s Zer0 friction customer experience focuses on removing barriers across the three pillars of a truly digital workflow: Technology, Operations, and Asset utilization.
“Allowing clients the freedom to use a multi-functional product (Probing, Monitoring and Multiviewing) across the four primary broadcast applications, anywhere, anytime with a business model that maximizes utilization of customers’ assets is what Zer0 Friction is all about,” said Kevin Joyce, TAG’s Zer0 Friction Officer. “With over 12 years of 100% SW, 100% IP experience, we can deploy our technology in ways that traditional providers simply cannot do. Zer0 Friction will be the way all vendors must operate to support the ever-increasing competitive environment of the media and entertainment industry.”
