IP-based video transmission network in the production workflow is one of most critical issues in the broadcast facility. As a provider of key technology of IP video for broadcasters, Media Links, will present its state-of-the-art IP video routing system at IBC 2015.
DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules Inc will demonstrate its dual input H.265 HEVC encoder at IBC. Shipping now and costing $23,995, the Flame265 2Ch/IP features real time encoding of content from cameras or video servers equipped with SDI, HDMI, or HD-SDI outputs. It encodes up to two 1080p HD streams, then outputs dual H.265 IP transport streams. The IP output resolution can be 1080p, 720p, 576p, 480p, and formats. The Linux-based system supports HLS and other IP output protocols.
It is clear that the risks associated with IP’s resilience compared to SDI are exaggerated and that the real concern with using IP infrastructure to deliver time-critical broadcast signals lies in the lack of a common approach and operability between vendors. The broadcast and post production industry has lived with this issue for decades but perhaps the time has come to thrust that paradigm aside to offer true cross-vendor software-based compatibility? Ed Calverley, VP Products at Suitcase TV certainly thinks so in his views on this vital topic heading into IBC 2015.
Matrox Video has announced Monarch HDX Dev Tools, a set of tools for streaming and recording linked to the Monarch HDX H.264 encoder.
MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems will introduce AntennaLink, a new way to extend the distance audio and video signals can travel over a single mode fiber cable without degradation.
