Osprey Video has integrated Caton Transport Protocols (CTP) into its Osprey Talon 4K encoder and decoder, which provide high quality conversion from linear feeds into IP at very low latency.
By embedding CTP into the Talon 4K encoder, users have a single-point device which takes the source feed (at up to 12G SDI or HDMI), encodes it to H.264 or H.265, and packages it for CTP to provide secure transport over IP circuits, including the public internet. At the receiving end, the Talon 4K decoder takes in the stream and delivers SDI or HDMI into the broadcast infrastructure.
The mobility of the Osprey solution means that it can be readily packaged for delivery in a tight space such as an outside broadcast (OB) truck, in a control room, connected to a camera, or as part of the master control in front of a stage. Both Osprey and Caton focus on achieving very low latency, so the solution is extremely practical for high-profile sports, as well as entertainment and other live events to be seen worldwide, said the companies.
Paul Weiser, Vice-President of Worldwide Sales & Marketing, Caton Technology, said, “We share the same core values with Osprey; we want to provide a set-and-forget system that will run securely and accurately 24/7 for as long as is needed.
“And we want to deliver low latency and very high quality at an affordable price point. This is a great partnership for us, and we look forward to seeing it develop further.”To find out more, visit booth W1931 at the 2023 NAB Show, which is taking place from April 16-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
