SST protocol and updates to PRO3 and AIR Series on tap.
New York—AVIWEST will arrive on the NAB NY 2019 show floor to promote its latest developments in the areas of live video distribution, contribution and connectivity, which are designed to help broadcasters capture and deliver live 4K, HD and SD video over multiple IP networks. One of the products to be prominently featured is the Safe Streams Transport (SST) protocol. SST aggregates multiple IP links and features new functionalities for live video production and distribution that include a data hotspot, remote control, video return and an intercom. SST is available on-premises as a cloud-based service and as a software container for third-party integration. There are also new updates to AVIWEST flagship products, including the PRO3 and AIR Series, each now incorporated with the hot folder and high-speed data hotspot feature. The hot folder enables automatic real-time file transmission over unmanaged networks. Also, using a transmitter’s internet connection, PRO3 and AIR can now act as a router and create a hotspot. AVIWEST says that these new features are possible due to its IP bonding technology.
The use of small broadcast quality HD cameras with wide-angle or fisheye lenses have become increasingly prevalent in live broadcast applications such as sport, ENG, wildlife programming, and reality TV, with non-broadcast use in medical, forensics/security and online gaming. For creative as well as other considerations, lens distortion and curvilinear perspective errors arising from the use of these camera lenses and camera positioning can produce results which can be considered undesirable and require correction. For live image feeds, rendered software based offline processing is not possible. AlphaEye addresses the problem directly through a hardware based sub pixel geometry engine that can correct for lens distortion in real-time. The corrected output exhibits no visible artefacts at all operational HD resolutions and is suitable for all high bar broadcast and non-broadcast applications.
ABonAir is bringing to NAB NY 2019 the National Association of Broadcasters (USA) award-winning Wireless Teleprompter and Video Return system. The system is a complete mobile wireless video solution for tier-1 broadcasters. The uniqueness of this system is based on the usage of the same single link that incorporates a teleprompter, video return, Camera Control Unit (CCU) and Intercom. The new system builds upon the ABonAir wireless HD system and allows TV production crews to use a wireless camera with all its functions (as with a wired camera), not neglecting any feature that is especially essential for a tier-1 broadcaster production. As the usage of mobile wireless video system expands, the need for integrated teleprompter and return video feeds grows, especially in multi-camera productions. Such an integrated solution is a technological breakthrough. It gives broadcasters more confidence in using wireless camera systems and empowers cameraman.
PERSEUS Plus is a unique compression technology that works with other industry-standard codecs to add additional layers of quality and efficiency, providing the optimum way to deliver an OTT service across all screens and at all resolutions from SD to UHD today. P.Link is an industry-redefining appliance for contribution and production encoding workflows enabling up to 70% cost savings per channel and reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 80% for UHD, while at the same time unlocking the promises of low-latency visually lossless UHD sports contribution, HDR, remote production and IP production.
