Evertz Delivers All The Tools Needed To Simplify Remote Productions And Content Transport
A cornerstone of the Evertz remote production and transport solution is the SCORPION Flexible Media Processing Platform, which allows for a high degree of flexibility in today’s broadcast environments. SCORPION offers an extensive range of media processing and conversion, complemented by a series of discrete signal support and optical transport.
The SCORPION is medium agnostic, supporting simultaneous baseband, dark fiber, and IP transport. SCORPION is able to move media with uncompressed formats (ST 2110 and ST2022-6) or by leveraging compression codecs (JPEG 2000, JPEG XS and HEVC). This allows for the platform to adapt to network type and bandwidth availability, while deploying protection and retransmission technologies where needed to mitigate network impairments.
For remote production, SCORPION provides customers with additional flexibility from their SCORPION platform with the MIO-BLADE-Z21 FPGA-based compute module that runs a catalogue of software services (as apps), defined by the end user. These software apps range from video/audio processing to UHD/3G/HD/SD up/down/cross conversion. The MIO-XPS module adds powerful encode/decode for signals over the public internet. These modules join an impressive catalogue of SFPs and Miniature input and output modules (MIOs) that SCORPION leverages for diverse signal routing and conversion – and now streaming.
Another key component of the Evertz remote and live production tool kit is the XPS Live 4K/UHD/3G/HD Video Encoder & Decoder Series, a real-time video streaming platform that is designed for mission-critical applications. Available in a variety of form factors, this software-defined next-generation UHD live encoder platform can be used for encoding/decoding over IP networks and is ideal for live or cloud-based applications where security, high quality and low-latency are essential. Supporting SRT, RIST, Zixi and other transport protocols, XPS Series gives broadcasters access to reliable, low-latency encoding over public networks, low-latency remote monitoring of broadcast facilities, and on-ramp/contribution encoder facilities for cloud production or playout hosted by public cloud providers.
In recent months Evertz has added 5G capability to XPS (MAA10G-TRXS-5G), making the product even more versatile, particularly for those who need to deliver remote contributions from places where IP connections are either unreliable or unavailable. It also supports the latest patent-pending iTrak technology for multi camera synchronization from multiple locations, and is fully integrated with Reflektor, Evertz’ Software as a Service (SaaS) audio/video distribution tool that transcodes and duplicates video codecs to provide easy delivery to the Cloud.
