Open Broadcast Systems Support For NMOS IS-04/05

Open Broadcast Systems has announced that its C-200 Encoders and Decoders now have support for NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications). The C-200 platform supports both the IS-04 and IS-05 specifications.

NMOS is a range of open, free of charge specifications that enable interoperability between media devices on an uncompressed IP infrastructure. Adding NMOS support allows for vendor-neutral routing of uncompressed IP flows into the C-200 Encoder without the need for specific drivers to be written or for manual configuration. Likewise, the C-200 Decoder can be incorporated into uncompressed IP facilities without complex manual configuration.

Kieran Kunhya, CEO, commented: “It can be challenging to incorporate high-density encode and decode into uncompressed IP facilities and so NMOS IS-04/05 allows for broadcasters to control encoders and decoders easily, without the need to go back to legacy SDI workflows, as many have done.”

He added, “The C-200 Encoder allows for high density encoding of uncompressed IP streams for contribution, distribution or internal monitoring feeds. It can encode more than 64 channels in just 2U, much higher than traditional systems. Similarly, the C-200 Decoder provides high density decode of MPEG transport streams into uncompressed IP formats such as 2110. The C-200 is available as pure software for IT-centric deployments or as appliances for more traditional setups. It delivers ultra-high value in pristine quality and with very low end-to-end latency.”
