Open Broadcast Systems Demonstrates High Density IP Contribution

Open Broadcast Systems is launching a high density Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) capable of handling 16 channels at once and said to be the highest density IRD on the market.

“Being software-based and running as apps on standard IT hardware, it is also much more cost efficient than comparable solutions, enabling flexible deployment of contribution services over IP,” says the firm.

OBS will also be launching a solution to natively generate uncompressed IP signals using a standard IT network and existing hardware. It says this will enable broadcasters to deliver extremely high quality uncompressed feeds over IP at a much lower cost than previously possible.

“Most of the industry agrees that IP contribution and distribution brings a number of benefits when it comes to cost and bandwidth efficiencies,” commented Kieran Kunhya, Founder, Open Broadcast Systems. “What most don’t realise is that the technology already exists today to deliver that with high reliability.”
