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.
