Bridging the IP gap
IP has improved workflow production, but challenges of transiting to IP still exist for many broadcasters. Catering to the needs of broadcast professionals, Bridge Technologies is introducing hardware and software tools to enable a smooth transit to an all-IP infrastructure.
“We have a strong belief in the benefits of IP technology on broadcasters, such as interoperability, lower cost, greater flexibility and improved scalability,” said Simen K. Frostad, chairman, Bridge Technologies.
Bridge Technologies’ solutions address all aspects of the broadcast process, from initial content production to remote distribution. Studios, OB vans, remote production facilities, broadcasters operating via OTT or the cloud as well as satellite, terrestrial and cable operators are all able to benefit from the range of its innovative solutions: the VB440 and VB330 IP Probes.
The VB440 IP Probe supports uncompressed media flows over IP with ST2110 and ST2022-5 transports. This provides network operators with real-time analytics from multiple streams. It also supports dual interface speeds of 10Gb, 25Gb, 40Gb, 50Gb and up to 100Gb. The solution is flexible, capable of accommodating SD, HD i & p, HD HDR, 4K and 4K HDR and above. Consequently, users of the data can reach a deeper and intuitive understanding of the viewing behaviour of its consumers.
Other than bridging the platforms gap, the VB330 IP Probe is said to unpack and monitor multicast target towards Remote PHY CCAP nodes. By relying on its software-based solutions, cable operators can lower its Opex and Capex. Moreover, the technology is scalable and able to take high level of network traffic.
In addition to the VB330 and VB440, Bridge Technologies will also showcase the VB288 Content extractor, remote data wall and NOMAD – an all-in-one portable solution that’s a boon for technicians constantly on the move.
