Pharos reports buoyant IBC 2004

Pharos Communications new Pilot Ria was the focus of attention at IBC 2004.
The “de-facto industry standard” for broadcast control, Pharos Pilot eliminates the clutter and expense of hard-wired panels and resource-hungry desktop applications.
Pilot Ria provides full reactive control of broadcast routing equipment from any web browser via local or secure-coupled intranet. It can be deployed quickly and easily throughout a single-site or multi-site facility and, when necessary, allows engineering staff to reconfigure a system from home or while travelling.
Designed to meet growing demand for interactive programming, Pharos Playtime interActive (iA) enables broadcasters to deliver dynamic presentation such as viewer-controlled games and vote-enabled content. Elaborate interactive audience-participation effects can be achieved reliably and efficiently under automated control. Next event to air can be based on aggregated audience feedback or other data. Playtime iA is also ideal for managing audience reactions and playout from live studios. Mediator with simultaneous tx and browse ingest.
Pharos also demonstrated simultaneous ingest of incoming video to transmission-quality MPEG-2 and browse-quality MPEG-1. An enhancement to the Pharos Mediator media management system, this enables broadcasters to make a compressed reference copy of programme source content via the same signal processor that ingests to the transmission server. Broadcasters need no longer dedicate a video server to browse encoding.
