Mediaware Presented Matrix at IBC

Australia’s General Dynamics Mediaware showcased its Matrix integrated technology package at IBC.

The company says Matrix allows operators to configure Mediaware stream processing technologies, including its InStream Delay and InFuze logo insertion software, in the form of modules operating within a consolidated technology platform.

Current Matrix modules include time delay, real-time logo insertion and audio loudness control. All modules can operate on single program transport stream and statistically multiplexed services in multi-program transport stream for ASI and IP.

In addition, Matrix’s transport stream processing mode modifies transport stream packets without the need to re-multiplex, negating the need for highly complex stream reconstruction.

“This type of graphics, branding, and playout technology package is relatively new for the industry,” said Garrick Simeon, company MD.

“While common in the hardware space, integrating software in this manner is a new trend. Matrix recognises that broadcast systems are constantly evolving and our software needs to be flexible to accommodate customers changing requirements. Matrix has been designed to adapt to the needs of operators by offering a consolidated platform for our stream processing technologies in the form of pluggable modules. It can be easily adapted and modules used can be scaled up or down to meet demand, much like the familiar hardware based modular chassis of old.”
