There are some immutable laws for success in any consumer-oriented industry. Potential customers need to first know the product or service exists, and then they have to be persuaded that it’s desirable or necessary.
Designed for use in live television content creation and post-production, Eyeheight’s LE-2M legaliser ensures that incoming signal video is held within the required broadcast color-space parameters, such as EBU-R103. Incoming SDI or HD-SDI video is auto-detected and the appropriate legalizing format then applied.
Distributing video over IP is becoming more common, and as competition heats up in the world of multiscreen media, it is more important than ever for operators to produce reliable, pristine signals and the best possible viewing experience in every format on every screen. Yet doing so is impossible without…
Engineers face new challenges in measuring 12G-SDI signals, which require different techniques compared to those used with SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI signals. Here we will touch on the importance of signal shape, the impact of jitter and the complexities of the different interface formats.
Consumers care less about how content is delivered to their device than about the quality of the experience (QoE) on that device. This means engineers need to rethink how test and measurement tools can best be applied.
Quality control has always been important for all forms of home entertainment content and broadcast material. But now, with the advent of 4K and UHD, QC is an absolutely vital part of the process that can’t be compromised in any way.
The coding efficiency of audio compression is about to improve markedly because of a new MPEG audio standard—MPEG-H. This standard will permit many new and useful capabilities for those involved in television audio.
At NAB 2015, the dominate discussion on the floor and in many technology presentations focused on; Cloud Services, file based workflows, stream and file analyzers, SOA, ESB, Metadata, Big Data, Storage and “when we will be moving to IP?”. Just how close is this transition?
The FCC recently announced plans for national EAS tests. The first EAS test was on 9 November 2011 at 2 pm EST. The result was that approximately half the participants didn’t receive the test message for myriad technical reasons. It took the Commission five years to develop a better EAS plan. Is i…
Quantum Computing is still a developmental technology but it has the potential to completely transform more or less everything we currently assume regarding what computers can and can’t do - when it hits the mainstream what will it do to broadcast?
