Monitors Two new ranges from QLT of ‘Leading Edge Display Technologies’ were exhibited under the “ODS“ (Orion Display Solution) & ‘ENIGMA-K’ product lines at IBC recently. ODS 55 is the first ever Professional ‘LARGE’ Grade 1 OLED reference monitor and has been designed for critical analysis of post-production video for the Film and Broadcast Industries. The Display Panel is the first of an exclusive new 2nd Generation OLED released in August 2014. A 2nd 55“ OLED Grade 1 UHD (3840 x 2160) will also be released in November 2014. The ‘ENIGMA-K’ Range is the first ever 12/6G UHD-SDI single coax/fibre 3840 x 2160 professional LCD range working with frame rates up to 50/60 Hz (Totally Unique as 30Hz has previously been the maximum). IP production Sony and Evertz are working together to develop new IP interoperability technologies. The two companies first announced an alliance at IBC in September, as a continuation of their recent efforts to introduce IP-based solutions, such as Sony’s Network Media Interface and Evertz’s Software Defined Video Network (SDVN). The Sony-Evertz collaboration will allow customers to use an IP infrastructure in their facilities, and support broadcasters through the transition from legacy SDI environments to IP- based infrastructures. Sony’s Networked Media Interface packetizes and transmits HD and 4k video, audio, and metadata in real-time over standard network infrastructures. Sony is also developing low latency video codec (LLVC) technology to support the video compression required for 4k 60p transmission over 10 Gbps Ethernet. As of IBC 2014, 10 leading companies had announced their support for Sony Networked Media Interface.
