Suitcase TV Ltd will showcase a range of innovative, and cost-effective solutions at IBC 2018. The show runs from 14-18 September in Amsterdam, and Suitcase will be at stand 2.C10.
This world-leading developer of IP-based broadcast technology, prides itself in being a major proponent of the disruptive advent of IP. Whilst SDI still has its place, Suitcase TV’s IP solutions offer an exciting and cost-effective approach. This cutting edge technology is already displacing traditional broadcast hardware.
Iphrame Flyaway – Slo-mo, Talkback
Suitcase TV will highlight Iphrame Flyaway, a solution that offers centralised production of outside broadcasts and other live events. The technology enables more flexible working arrangements for equipment and for staff who can work from home. This reduces the need for large central office facilities. As a result, broadcasters can generate greater amounts of quality content while reducing opex.
Slo-mo functionality has been added for instant playback of key moments, and Talkback has been added to allow communication between commentators and supervisor at the touch of a button. VBN (Virtual Broadcast Network) technology gives users the confidence to work efficiently and securely via public internet.
Iphrame Remote Commentary
Whereas commentators traditionally work at the event site, Remote Commentary means that they can work from wherever they have an internet connection. Using a proxy stream and TimeLock to ensure synchronicity, the commentary perfectly matches the action.
Launched on AWS Marketplace, Iphrame Capture lets users access live web streams through any web-enabled device including tablets and smartphones. The user can record the stream and store it for future use or send it directly to a third-party editing suite such as Avid or Adobe.
Clipper is a continuous recording solution. It helps broadcasters and playout centres fulfil their compliance obligations while offering tools to edit recorded content for reuse. The system can work with inputs in SDI, ASI, and IP. Furthermore, it can make recordings in high resolution or browse quality depending on how the content is to be used later.
Suitcase TV’s technical director, David Atkins comments: ‘Broadcasters and content providers are currently having to face up to the huge rate of change that is taking place in the industry thanks to advances in software and IP workflows. We’re looking forward to catching up with old friends as well as forging new strategic relationships with people who can benefit from our expertise during their journey into the future.’
