Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in broadcast media technologies, has extended the functionality of its R&S®VENICE platform for live studio production. In particular, it has moved to support 4k Ultra HD signals, using either 12G or 2SI formats.
VENICE is a high-performance, high-resilience media platform designed to manage complex signal processing and storage requirements, particularly in live studio production applications. It provides uninterrupted operations including scheduled recording, clip transforms and playouts, across a network of processors and both Rohde & Schwarz storage and third-party qualified storage sub-systems. It also bridges the SDI and IP environments. VENICE servers can now be configured for multiple HD and Ultra HD signals, and units can work together as a single resource from a single user interface.
