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.

Nixer_RS32andRP64_IBC_TEVIOS

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_ProductRange_IBC_TEVIOS

Nixer also highlighted their existing product range at IBC 2022:

  • PD Dante: portable AoIP monitoring & diagnostics tool
  • RD Dante: quality assurance monitoring  & engineering positions
  • PLR64K: 2 channel Dante monitor
  • RL64: 64 channel AoIP monitor – now with Ravenna!
  • RL256 Series: 4 base models offering up to 256 channels of mixed Dante & Ravenna in a single 1RU frame

Media Links to Launch 4K JPEG-XS MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway

Media Links launches its 4K JPEG-XS version of the MDP3020 MAX™ IP Media Gateway at IBC 2022!

The MDP3020 is SMPTE standards-based and enhanced with support for two 4K-UHD/12G SDI video channels. It meets the need for cost effective, remotely configurable and protected 4K video over IP services at the network edge. By applying JPEG-XS compression and encapsulating the content into packets for transport over an IP network, the MDP3020 MAX processes incoming 4K, 12G SDI video/audio streams.

MDP3020 utilizes JPEG-XS with inherent high image compression and ultra-low latency processing. Use the MDP3020  in live, remote production applications, specifically where network edge bandwidths are constrained and immediate interaction between studio and venues is crucial.

MediaLinks_MDP3020_JPEG

Additional features include:

  • 10GbE/1GbE data port
  • Dual 10GbE optical interfaces
  • Seamless Protection Switching (aka Hitless Media Processing or SMPTE ST2022-7)
  • Redundant power capability
  • Integrated frame synchronizer
  • 1/2 rack unit
  • Low power consumption

The Seamless Protection/Hitless switching function operates on all media (video, audio and data), preventing signal disruption should there be problems in any one of the two diverse IP network paths.

TAG Introduces MCS Enhanced with New Bridge Technology!

With TAG Video System’s Bridge Technology, MCS Media Control System ingests a stream once then delivers an optimized version to multiple locations.

This NAB Product-of-the-Year solution is a valuable addition for multi-studio live production applications. The MCS transforms how users extract and utilize their own data, giving them improved operational performance as well as significant customization. It serves as an aggregation engine, system manager and orchestrator for the data collected by TAG’s MCM (Multi-Channel Monitoring) systems.

Thanks to an open-source paradigm, the MCS exposes probed and monitored data to third-party analytic & visualization applications. This allows companies to manage the entire monitoring stack from end-to-end.

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. TAG Bridge then optimizes the sizing, format and delivery protocol to fit the configuration of numerous recipients. This in turn drastically reduces compute resources and optimizes the amount of network bandwidth consumed, thus freeing up capacity for the customer.
