Rohde & Schwarz Banks On Venice

The Venice ingest and playout platform is a highlight of Rohde & Schwarz’s NAB presence.

R&S Venice permits convenient playout of mixed formats and codecs without prior transcoding. The solution offers workflows for SD to 4K and can be used for ingest through to playout. It handles all current codecs, including Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHR and Sony XAVC.

“The signaling and processing architecture is ready today for future HDR workflows, giving users an additional layer of investment protection," says Stefan Weidner, Sales Director Media at Rohde & Schwarz. "Its ability to process both current and future codecs and file formats makes the Rohde & Schwarz ingest and playout solution a secure investment for the future. The R&S VENICE Control application makes the system highly intuitive to use for multi-camera productions is considered an additional bonus."

Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer can be used during ingest to directly access and immediately start processing the data acquired by R&S Venice. The system also simultaneously generates proxy files and closed-caption files from the data in the SDI stream.

R&S Venice Control can handle up to 16 channels, each with a different resolution, and simultaneously controlled during production. The channels are automatically assigned via multicast. Configuration via static IP address is also possible. The defined channels can be added for ingest via drag & drop.

Control can be installed on any number of systems and offers redundant control of all ingest requirements. If a system drops out, all ingest control processes can be immediately transferred to another system.
