Open Broadcast Systems Demonstrate IP Workflows

Open Broadcast Systems’ IBC demos includes its high density Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) which allows for 16 channels to be simultaneously decoded on a 1U chassis.

This could potentially replace half a rack of equipment with a single server. It is the highest density IRD currently on the market, so the firm says, and is software based, running as apps on standard IT hardware. In addition to traditional SDI, the decoder now supports decoding to uncompressed IP outputs using a new 25GbE interface.

“This is the only encoder/decoder pair to support 25GbE, allowing for ultra-high density deployments to handle the content explosion,” says Kieran Kunhya, Managing Director. 

Additionally, Open Broadcast Systems will be demonstrating its new Remote Production solution. This will allow broadcasters to reduce the complexity of off site production by sending multiple video paths back to base over a variety of networks, managed or unmanaged.

An ultra-low latency VC-2 compression software solution is also on show.  “We are pioneering the evolution of broadcast,” says Kunhya. “We are developing IP solutions which mean anyone can deploy content quickly and in a cost efficient manner. Open Broadcast Systems is passionate about being the driving force of innovation in the industry, and we look forward to demonstrating this at IBC.”
