Deltacast's VideoMaster SDK software streaming solution
At IBC 2017 Deltacast announced a collaboration with Cisco over its successful IP and VideoMaster ST2022-6 solution. Additionally, Deltacast showcased TICO-powered 4K over 10GbE Grass Valley at IBC 2017.
Deltacast's VideoMaster SDK software streaming solution allows developers designing IP ingest and playout products based on OTS network cards. The first standard to be implemented is SMPTE ST2022-6, with the companies development team closely following SMPTE ST2110 standard evolution.
The VideoMaster SDK is a software interface to communicate with Deltacast video cards for users to design their own products and applications. It contains drivers for most computer platforms, easy to use API (Application Programming Interface), comprehensive documentation and example source code.
The VideoMaster SDK boasts a flexible buffering scheme and easy channel synchronisation for video channel management. VideoMaster OEM SDK's content is free with any card from the SDI Cards, DVI/HDMI Cards, SFP Cards, ASI Cards and Mixed Interfaces Cards. Additionally, it provides unified SDK for the SDI Cards, DVI/HDMI Cards, SFP Cards, ASI Cards and Mixed Interfaces Cards. It has easy-to-use API for direct access to 8-10-bit digital video channels, a comprehensive programmers manual, sample programs in source code, and full online help and support.
TICO at IBC 2017
Deltacast and Grass Valley jointly showcased TICO compression technology for the transport of UHD content on existing video infrastructures and video networks at IBC2017. The Deltacast portfolio includes products which support TICO over SDI as well as over IP. This product is connected to the Grass Valley Densite IP Gateway, IPG-3901, receiving 4K/UHD video over a 10GbE connection, and displayed on a 4K screen.
The IPG-3901 from Grass Valley is designed to help broadcasters build hybrid SDI/IP production environments as they make the transition to IP-based transport. The IPG-3901 cards offer a TICO support option and convert real-time, uncompressed, baseband video using SMPTE 2022-6 protocol for distribution over 10 GigE networks, and vice versa. The gateways support any mix of 3G/HD/SD-SDI production workflows over IP networks.
