At this year’s NAB show in Las Vegas, Evertz is highlighting its Mediator-X platform and OvertureRT Modular Playout engine, which supports media asset management (MAM), transmission playout (TX) and non-linear delivery (NLE) across thousands of channels globally.
Mediator-X can run on private or public cloud infrastructure, giving media companies a versatile and reliable workflow engine that fully automates MAM processes. The system can be configured to run just one of the MAM, TX or NLE core functions, but when all three are combined, “powerful benefits” come into play in terms of simplicity of use and increased efficiency, said Evertz.
As an extensive playout engine, the OvertureRT delivers an extensive list of features including logo/graphics insertion, rich SCTE metadata messaging, audio loudness correction, Nielsen watermarking, Dolby D encoding, and more.
Evertz is also introducing StreamPro, a cost-effective playout and automation solution for smaller broadcasters and for over-the-top (OTT) applications. Using Evertz’s Emmy Award–winning Overture Playout technology, StreamPro delivers frame accurate linear playout streams, preconfigured workflows, task options and a choice of redundancy models.
A simplified ingest process ensures that ready-for-air content and metadata is automatically delivered to third–party storage and Evertz OvertureRT playout devices. Scheduling StreamPro includes all Evertz standard templates such as live, file-based content, captions/subtitles, graphics and SCTE104/35 insertion.
