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.

PHABRIX QxL Rasterizer Wins Product of the Year!

The QxL rasterizer by PHABRIX is an IABM BaM Awards® 2021 finalist and NABShow Product of the Year Winner!


The ultra-compact, feature-rich 25G IP 2110 QxL rasterizer recently became an IABM BaM Awards® 2021 finalist. Only weeks before, it won NABShow Product of the Year in the ‘Best New Monitoring and Measuring Technology’ category.

The QxL rasterizer primarily supports IP SMPTE 2110/2022-7 and IP SMPTE 2022-6 signals up to UHD formats. It also contains the same JT-NM Tested features as the Qx. Thanks to its 25G interface network, the QxL is able to handle 4K in IP. The rasterizer can be optionally fitted with SDI interfaces while supporting formats from HD to UHD. In the latest software release, the QxL rasterizer generates the user interface (GUI) as a 2110 flow, making the GUI viewable from anywhere!
