HEVC in a 4K Integrated Workflow

BBright has introduced UHD solutions for contribution, ingest, playout and delivery around a HEVC-based video workflow.

BBright’s software-based video processing products now accept HEVC as the central file or input/output TS format for a more uniform UHD workflow in the video head-end.

The new UHD-Decode is offered as a high bit rate (up to 120 Mbps) 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC contribution decoder with dual redundant TSoIP inputs and quad 3G-SDI outputs.

Also unveiled will be the HEVC-TSI, a high bit rate TS ingest station meant to record live contribution or distribution HEVC transport stream. Recording can be split in chunks, if necessary (for further QC check) and stored locally or on a central storage.

Once recorded these HEVC files can also directly feed, as main playout pivot format, the UHD-24/7 baseband playout with event scheduler and fully integrated playout automation.

HEVC compressed file playout for direct delivery to various video networks can also be achieved using the UHD-TS, single or multichannel, streamer.

BBright CEO Guillaume Arthuis said: "These fundamental operations in any Ultra HD workflow are performed, with the expected reliability level, in a cost efficient, flexible and upgradeable platform that only software-based appliances can offer nowadays. Our technologically leading products have already been adopted by world famous satellite, terrestrial and telecom operators and by leading 4K channels in USA, Germany, France, Belgium, Malaysia, Poland, India and more".
