ITN Productions selected VidiGo to enable the production department to make their own programs independently without having to invest in extremely high skilled people. VidiGo replaced the existing full spec £350,000 mixer and a £100,000 sound mixer gallery. Check out the full User Case.
Asset management and digital media supply chain services provider, Visual Data, has teamed up with Telestream to create re:io, an online broadcast content processing platform intended to create DPP (Digital Production Partnership) files for delivery to UK broadcasters. With the adoption of the DPP delivery standard, Visual Data recognized an opportunity to build a service that would make it simple for production companies to supply their content to UK broadcasters and give them confidence that their deliveries would meet the requirements of the standard.
re:io allows clients to pay for each transaction on an account or credit card basis; there are no contracts or sign up fees. This makes the process of complying with DPP requirements inexpensive, transparent and pain-free.
The concept, which first saw the light of day some 12 months ago, has seen Telestream’s solution architects, support engineers and product managers working closely with Visual Data’s project team, headed by Matt Goble. The team has been supported by Telestream’s UK channel partner, Boxer Systems. re:io uses Telestream’s Vantage® video transcoding and media processing system to empower all of the ‘heavy lifting’ workflow and transcoding processes throughout the platform.
Harmonic Launch First Playout Server Offering SDI and IP I/O With Up/Down/Cross-Conversion in One Chassis
First Playout Server Offering SDI and IP I/O With Up/Down/Cross-Conversion in One Chassis Eases Transition to IP Playout, Provides Path to Ultra HD, Reduces TCO
Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, today announced the launch of the Spectrum X next-generation media server system that elevates the industry’s most trusted server platform to new levels of flexibility, efficiency and reliability. Designed for production and playout applications, the Spectrum X media server system eases the transition to IP broadcast workflows by integrating SDI and IP I/O on the same chassis. The software-based system leverages Harmonic’s VOS™ technologies and combines file, baseband and transport stream ingest with comprehensive integrated channel playout (ICP) capabilities, including graphics and branding, DVE, master control switching and audio mixing.
Supporting a broad range of SD and HD formats, and upgradable to Ultra HD, the Spectrum X system can operate as a true channel-in-a-box (CIAB), as an integrated channel playout server, or as a conventional I/O server connected to Spectrum shared storage infrastructure or internal storage. At Harmonic booth SU1210 during the 2015 NAB Show, the Spectrum X media server will be demonstrated providing playout with graphics and branding to Harmonic’s Ultra HD live workflow, making it the first Ultra HD CIAB solution.
