swXtch.io Debut New Enhancements To cloudSwXtch

swXtch.io comes to the 2024 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show with a strong message that the time is ripe for broadcasters to move their live production, content delivery and playout and media monitoring & transport workflows to the cloud.

swXtch.io is showcasing new enhancements to its cloudSwXtch product, and demonstrating how broadcasters can quickly realize the adaptability, reliability and agility benefits of the cloud:

  • Adaptability (live Production in the cloud) - swXtch.io now supports JPEG-XS compression flows, allowing customers to move visually lossless video at very low latency into and through the cloud. JPEG-XS compression addresses the challenge of managing the heavy bandwidth and high costs of uncompressed video in the cloud while retaining premium broadcast-quality pictures. cloudSwXtch also offers support for uncompressed ST-2110, providing customers with more options to manage their entire live production workflows in the cloud.
  • Reliability (Content Delivery and Playout) – swXtch.io is demonstrating how lossless UDP provides additional protection for media streams across dynamic bridging (ground-to-cloud) and multi-cloud networking applications. Lossless UDP optimizes packet delivery for high-bandwidth streams with minimal latency. cloudSwXtch also offers stream protection through SMPTE ST-2022-7 hitless merge, offering network path redundancy as parallel streams move through the cloud or across multi-cloud networks.
  • Agility (Media Monitoring & Transport) – swXtch.io is also demonstrating Network Media Open Specifications (NMOS) workflows in cloudSwXtch networks, streamlining the management and orchestration of media workflows in the cloud and ensuring they align with on-prem systems.

swXtch.io is also highlighting how its partnership with Cinnafilm makes live, broadcast-quality standards conversions and Hollywood format conversions in the cloud a reality.
