Ikegami Electronics Europe has announced a new addition to its range of broadcast production equipment. The BSX-100 is a 3G fibre base station offering a coherent upgrade path for broadcasters and production companies as they progress from SDI to IP, from standard dynamic range to high dynamic range and from high definition into HD/4K dual-format workflow.
The advantages of IP are most beneficial in OB production.
National Bunraku Theatre in Osaka, Japan, has chosen Riedel Communications’ MediorNet real-time network to drive signal transport for the theatre’s upgrade to all-digital video operations.
Prudential Center, the world-class sports and entertainment venue located in downtown Newark, New Jersey, has replaced its aging signal and communications infrastructure with an all-new signal routing and intercom backbone based on distributed architecture technology from Riedel Communications.
Riedel Communications has expanded its MediorNet family of video networking devices with 13 new hardware devices and nine new software apps, making it better equipped to meet the distributed routing, processing, and multiviewing requirements of today’s SDI, IP, and hybrid production environments.
Viewing audiences are continually driving broadcasters to deliver improved video formats to further enhance the immersive experience. It didn’t seem so long ago that HD was lauded as the best format ever. Not only did we end up quadrupling the number of pixels and frame rates to deliver 12G-SDI, but we also mixed them with high dynamic range and wide color gamut.
