TAG Content Matching at IBC 2023

TAG Video Systems displayed their latest innovation – Content Matching Technology – at IBC 2023.

With Content Matching Technology, detect similar content across two different streams in order to ensure correct, uninterrupted delivery to the proper destination.

How does it work? “By creating a unique fingerprint for each video frame and audio envelope and matching them across the entire media distribution party against a user-defined reference point,” explains TAG VS.

With this technology, identify and correlate audio and video uniqueness regardless of resolution, bitrate or frame rate, thus enabling a match between any points within the workflow. TAG can still identify and confirm identical and correct content, even after the content has been processed and manipulated.


Content Matching enables the following applications:

  • Frame-accurate latency measurement between any points in the workflow
  • Comparing quality and content accuracy across different feeds in order to compare distribution methods or alternative paths
  • Confirm ad insertion to SCTE messages with frame accuracy to assure & protect revenue
  • Measure, validate A/V alignment and audio channel drift at any point within the workflow

New 12G SDI Audio Embedders/De-Embedders by LYNX

LYNX recently released two 12G SDI Audio Embedders/De-Embedders: PDM 1484 B (BNC audio connection) for unbalanced AES audio and PDM 1484 D (D-sub audio connection) for balanced AES and Analog audio.

These new yellobriks are perfect for applications requiring multi-channel audio handling. They embed or de-embed digital AES or Analog audio within any SDI video stream up to 12G.



  • 12G / 6G / 3G / HD-SDI and SD-SDI
  • Simultaneous embedding & de-embedding functions
  • Access to four audio groups (16 channels)
  • “Auto-black” generation mode: transport audio signals only, without an external video carrier
  • “Bidirectional Master/Slave” functionality
  • CWDM multiplex capability
  • Cascade or rack modules together to include more or extract audio groups from the video stream

Both PDM 1484 B and D support fiber I/O options, including 3G/12G-SDI standard plug-in SFP fiber transmitters, receivers, and transceivers. Plus, all 18 wavelength channels of CWDM are supported with dedicated SFPs.

“Best in Show” for AVT’s New Video Feature for Telephone Hybrids

AVT Audio Visual Technologies’s new video feature for their MAGIC Telephone Hybrids won “Best in Show 2022” at IBC – International Broadcasting Convention!

Telephone Hybrids, also known as Talkshow Systems, convert incoming calls into audio signals which are suitable in the studio environment. Typically three different line interfaces are used: POTS (analogue telephone lines), ISDN or Ethernet interfaces using Voice over IP technology.

AVT offers multiple MAGIC telephone hybrids with this award-winning video feature:

MAGIC TH1Go – 1 channel

  • Single-hybrid with analogue audio interfaces
  • Digital echo canceller, AGC (automatic gain control) and expander
  • Pretalk via analogue telephone or second audio interface

MAGIC TH2plus – 2 channels

  • Digital echo canceller, AGC and expander for each channel

TAG VS Wins “Best of Show” at IBC for MCS with Bridge Technology!

The Media Control System with Bridge Technology by TAG Video Systems took home “Best of Show” at IBC!

TAG’s MCS Media Control System with Bridge Technology was part of the winning entries in the TVBEurope category of Best of Show at IBC awards programme 2022. With Bridge Technology, MCS ingests a stream once then delivers an optimized version to multiple locations.

MCS is the newest layer of TAG’s Realtime Media Performance (RMP) Platform, a 100% IP, 100% software, multi-level, open-source solution that monitors, aggregates, manages & utilizes data-driven viewer analytics to provide users with the insight required to build performant linear media systems. In other words, it transforms how users extract and utilize their own data, giving them improved operational performance and customization. It serves as an aggregation engine, system manager and orchestrator for the data collected by TAG’s Multi-Channel Monitoring systems.

TAG’s Bridge Technology, powered by the MCS, enables the user to receive a source once (video, audio, metadata) and display it directly on any TAG system. It allows the MCS to talk to other MCS’s providing users a way of replicating signals and transferring streams. TAG Bridge then optimizes the sizing, format and delivery protocol to fit the configuration of numerous recipients, drastically reducing compute resources and optimizing the amount of network bandwidth consumed. This in turn frees up capacity for the customer.

Nixer Displays RS32 AoIP Change-Over Switch & RP64 Patch Panel

Nixer launched their RS32 Audio over IP change-over switch and their RP64 (64 in, 64 out) digital AoIP patch panel at IBC 2022.


Simple and intuitive to operate, the RS32 provides 32 individual 2-by-1 change-over switches. Each switch has two inputs that can be routed to any one output. The switches can be ganged together in order to create a maximum 32-pole switch. The RS32 is designed for quick reassignment of critical audio sources in the event that a main source fails, making it easy to seamlessly route to a backup device.

The RP64 is a 64 Dante input to 64 Dante output digital patchbay. Connect any Dante input to any Dante output thanks to the intuitive interface. Effortlessly re-patch critical signals without the use of a laptop with Dante controller. When re-patching with RP64, it is near instantaneous.

Both the RS32 and the RP64 share the same compact 1RU enclosure. They can be powered via PoE on the primary Dante port. Plus, a DC input offers power redundancy, while a secondary RJ45 port ensures network redundancy.


Nixer also highlighted their existing product range at IBC 2022:
