NEWS MOVE & DELIVER Media transport The DigiLink media transport platform for transporting broadcast-quality media across IP networks, direct fibre, and optical backbones will be showcased by Artel Video Systems at BVE (Stand F07). DigiLink is designed specifically to meet the needs of broadcasters, service providers, and others transitioning to an all-IP-based or hybrid fibre/IP-based media network. Also on show will be the Fiberlink 3514 Series fibre transmission system for 4k/3G/HD/SD-SDI and the Fiberlink SDI Beamer. File-based QC Interra Systems will use BVE (Stand E23) to unveil the latest version of Baton, its file-based QC software. Version 6.3 optimises the QC process for 4k UHD, HEVC, HDR, DPX, and IMF content, and cloud-based workflows, through a wide range of enhancements, including improvements to video/audio quality checks, data checks, audio language detection, verification checks across formats and usability improvements in test plan creation/management. Interra will also demonstrate new capabilities for its Baton+ QC and data analysis software at BVE and showcase its Orion real-time content monitoring system which now features enhanced usability and reporting capabilities. The Vega Media Analyzers will also be on show. Video contribution Cinegy will demo a real-time playout server and multi-channel broadcast automation software application at NAB this year. Cinegy Air will be shown performing 8K playout. Cinegy chief executive Jan Weigner said: “Most people don’t even have 4k televisions yet, but given the slew of 8K televisions at CES earlier this year, 8K matters, and the production buzz around it will get louder at NAB.” NAB will also see the final release of the codec at the heart of Cinegy’s 8K playout demo, DANIEL2. DANIEL2 is a GPU-based acquisition and production codec for recording from camera sources, editing, and post- production, as well as playout. At BVE (Stand D15), Aviwest will showcase new grid view and statistics capabilities for the Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) Manager, the server application that enables broadcasters to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment. The DMNG Manager provides broadcasters with a video thumbnail of each feed from the field units. When arranged in a grid-view, these thumbnails ease system resource allocation by helping operators to easily route the video streams to one or multiple receivers or CDNs, with a simple drag and drop. A new statistics feature for the DMNG Manager supplies broadcasters with essential information such as SIM card consumption. Also at BVE, Aviwest will showcase version 2.6 of its DMNG PRO video uplink system and provide a sneak peek of its new DMNG Laptop, a newsgathering tool that combines an H.264 and HEVC encoder in an Apple MacBook Pro.
