Iphrame IP-Based Production System from Suitcase TV

Suitcase TV will feature IP-based production system Iphrame Flyaway at the 2017 NAB Show.

Iphrame is Suitcase TV’s software-based remote architecture framework, which combines IP, ASI, and SDI signals in a portable system for real-time, low latency production on the fly. Iphrame manages all video, audio, and graphics on standard IT hardware or VMs.

Suitcase TV Commercial Director Fraser Jardine said, “Iphrame can be set up very quickly and be used to switch proxy versions of sources in real time. This means that on-site staff numbers can be greatly reduced, as well as the costs associated with them.”

Iphrame Flyaway incorporates Suitcase’s TimeLock functionality, which uses PTP reference clocks to ensure that all sources and processes are timestamped on site. That means there is no need to return sources because all switching is done on site.

Because it is packaged in a compact, rigid, and weather proof case, Iphrame is easily transported and can be online in minutes. Once Iphrame Flyaway is connected to a broadcast centre via any standard IP link, all that remains is to plug in SDI cameras/feeds and audio sources.
